India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a golden color with a 2 inch head that recedes and leaves alot of sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is of citrusy hops and slight yeast. Taste is citrusy hops with a slight twist of lemon. This is a very balanced and smooth IPA. Not the punch or bite that the Hopslam has(which I love). This has a very smooth mouthfeel that makes this beer HIGHLY sessionable. This is a beer that you could pick up a sixer and take to a party and not have any problem drinking all of. I would highly recommend this beer to anybody.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2009 Pours sorta hazy golden, forming a white foamy head. Aroma of crisp pines, wet forest hops, and lovely malts. Flavor is of sweet malted floral hops. Very well balanced. A tinge of grapefruit going there too. Pretty good IPA, not overwhelming. Not very pungent as I was hoping for. Would have gotten higher point from me, not up there with Hop Devil or Thunderhead, but not too bad either. Easily sessionable.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 Bottle. Pours golden with thick off-white head. Huge hop nose. Fragrant citrusy hops. Taste is lively citrus - orange, passionfruit, pineapple - backed by creamy malt. Very interesting that the bitterness is neatly balanced by the captivating flavors of the hop resins.
