COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPAs, in contrast the palate is more crisp and dry. If you consider yourself a "hop-head" you owe it to yourself to grab this beer.

Pours cloudy dark copper color with bits of yeast and a nice light beige head. Great grapefruit and pine hop aroma. The flavor is similar, a lot of citrus, some pine and grass. The body is indeed crisp and somewhat dry. Very enjoyable IPA, kind of like a Two Hearted light, similar flavor but not as much character.

"Chunks in my glass from the gunk on the bottom of the bottle. Some as large as one inch flakes, quite alarming. Smells like pine needles. First taste is very rude and unkind to my lager lover taste buds. Reminds me somewhat of chewing an inner tube. Strong alky laced turpentine tar flavors. Pine trees and green grapefruits will rejoice! Bitter long medicianl finish that reminds me of the best DIIPAs. Good carbonation for an IPA. Oily unrefined hops finish. Simply terrible and on style.

Bottle at Detroit airport pre DLD trip... Copper ... big foam head ... nice bright pine hop nose ... big hop front ... bit over fizzy ... juicy pine and grapefruit.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2009

Source: 12 oz bottle purchased from Friar Tucks in Bloomington.
Appearance: Poured a hazy gold/orange color with a two finger white head that dissipated into a bunch of lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, pine and grass. Citrus was mainly oranges. Very grassy.
Flavor: Solid malt backbone, slightly sweet. Pine and citrus hops. Lingering bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and solid carbonation.
Overall: Good beer. Kind of a hemp bomb, but very well balanced.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2009
Very hazy orange-copper with lasting foam. Aroma of orange peel, pineyness and hop acidity. Flavor is very skewed to the hops, which I love. Body leaves much to be desired, it feels light and fizzy. I love the hoppyness but I really with there were a touch more body. Lasting finish with a good acidy feel.

screigh (700) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2009
Poured a copper color with a huge fluffy head. Dont know if its by design but this thing looks like a mud puddle. There is so much floating in it that it cannot be seen through. Kind of off-putting look. Aroma is weak with a smell of dirt and chlorine. Mouthfeel is light. Slight bitterness. Seems almost bland. I wouldnt call this an IPA if judged blindly.

nuplastikk (6089) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2009
12oz bottle. Deep orange-brown color, nice thin but lasting creamy head. Chunky floaters. Lots of earthy hop aromas. The taste is bitter and earthy, with a touch of dark malt coming through. Very balanced, with a thick resiny hop side. Smooth onthe palate. Great.

drpimento (3448) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2009
Pretty decent brew. Poured with a nice head and some lace. Color is an amber on the dark side. Aroma is very hoppy with a little grapefruit and some muskiness, malty. Flavor is as described: on the dry side, hop bitter, very good carbonation. drinkable. Hoppy finish with almost no sweetness.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - APR 13, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Quick rating at the brewery. Pineapple aromas with hints of honey and some bread. Golden yellow colors with a slightly opaque body and bubbly head. Good hoppy flavors with a rich mouthfeel and good duration. Pineapple is not that forward in the flavors. Somewhat sweet with malty balance to the hoppiness. Rich and Solid.

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2009
Wonderful beer that is astonishingly underrated. Nice hazy pour, with a nice citrus taste/smell. Very similar to the other MI IPAs, Centennial and Two Hearted. And almost as good. Highly recommended if you can get it fresh enough.
