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.

Bottle to pint glass Spruce, grapefruit, orange, and molasses. Light amber with a very creamy off white head. Taste is strong orange, grapefruit, a little biscuit, and malts.

Bottle to snifter. Rich gold pour with lasting head. Aroma is sharp and bright, juicy lemon, and borderline-parfumy floral. Taste is an abundance of pleasant floral-dominated notes, clean sweet malt on finish with a palatable pine-like linger. Well balanced indeed. Just had a 3F Zombie Dust, would certainly classify under the same vein/caliber. Two Hearted being slightly more lingering and rich. Always good.

aleigator (912) - GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
Pours a froth, beautiful bubble durchzogen white head, with a sunny amber, slighty hazy color. Smells of grass driven orange, coated up by bitter lemon zest. Citrus peel grows stronger, as the beer warms up with unripe, sour kiwi, as well as apricot skin. Still, the maltiness is very strong on the nose, adding a note of earth and rock sugar to the hops. Has a medium carbonation, exhibiting a refreshing, hop forward beer, with lots of exotic fruits to it, as well a prominent malt backbone. Begins with sweeter, biscuity malts, revealing toffee infused rye bread, giving the malts a pleasant depth, balancing the well pronounced hops easily. Reveals surprisingly sweet toffee malts, which get joined by far reaching lime juice, which lends the beer a profound, bitter refreshment. The hops get enhanced by dried tangerine peel and apple stones, providing an aggressive dryness, which features a worthy counterpart to the well developed malt backbone, staying on the tongue for a longer while. Well balanced, easy drinking ipa which isnít convincing only for its hoppy part, but also for its eigenstšndig malty part, adding to the hops, while balancing them, without cutting them short in any way. Old school ipa, with a straight forward, long lasting hoppiness, providing a great fruiti- and dryness, successfully coated up by the malts.

The old standby...Piney hop aroma, with a great balance of pine/citrus hops and malt backbone.

12 oz bottle, thanks Kelly! Bottled 3/13/15--uh oh. Aroma is doughy, perfumy, earthy, citrus--all pretty mild. Pours hazy orange with a medium bone-white head with decent retention; laces a little. Taste has a mild bitterness backed by a light candy sweetness. For the hype this has, this is vey understated. When I saw that bottling date, I was worried, but there are no off-notes, this beer does not taste old one bit. Itís just kind of boring. It tastes really good, no doubt, but I was expecting much more. It is tasty, though.

I think I broke my palate for IPAs. A "well balanced" IPA comes across as overly-malty to me. I like the aroma a little more than the taste. Still a nice beer, just not what Iím looking for in an IPA right now.

One pint can. Nice!!! 1/11/16 date clear orange amber color. Bright white head. Leaves a thick and sticky collar. Nose is a bit soft. Citrus, caramel, grain, does smell quite juicy though. Taste is big juicy fruit, soft caramel, soft bitterness. Makes up for it in the feel, very long lasting. Lots of oil. Lots of orange and other citrus. Amazing body. Very clean.

CacheManyHose (669) - HONG KONG - MAR 11, 2016
Fourth beer of the five Matt bought back from San Diego. Light brown with sudsy white bubbly head. Smell is fragrant floral hop, light crisp malt. Taste is very resinous hop, moderate malt, faint corn. Body is slick and bitter. Nose is floral and delicate, taste is massive resin. Big and bitter and very nice but don't think it quite lives up to its 4.05 rating.
