COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPA’s, 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.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle: Golden-amber, hazy with an off-white cap and nice, chunky lacing. Very hoppy aroma with pungent perfume, florals, wet roses; earthy, ashy, and peppery just a bit. Light toasted bread and cracker malts on the palate. Great hop show as well; spicy, herbal tea leaves, white pepper. Commanding bitterness with some grapefruit and lemon zest, mild "Lemon Pledge" characteristic, a bit of alcohol warmth. Very light toasty malt flavors. Slick, residual palate stickiness. Very solid Michigan IPA, I get this from time to time.

Hazy orange colour with lasting head. Aroma and flavour have a fair amount of malt sweetness. Well balanced IPA woth a bitterness that grows in the aftertaste.

This is a killer IPA. Great finish, not bitter. Good stuff. Really impressive taste and good hoppy quality.

From Apr 2008 I got this in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe! This pours a cloudy orange with a 2 finger head of foam with some good lacing. Head retention is average. The smell is certainly big on the grapefruit. Behind the citrus, I can just detect some light maltines. The taste surprised me a bit. The grapefruit is really strong here but there's more malt than I would have guessed from the smell. It still doesn't balance the hops but it's there along with a fruity flavour. The mouthfeel borders on medium, the carbonation is medium light, and it finishes with a sharp bitter bite. This is an interesting IPA and pretty drinkable...I like the bitterness here; it kind of reminds me of Bridgeport IPA, which I'm very fond of. Good stuff.

Aroma sweet and hoppy with bready malt.. It has a frothy head with a hazy, orange-gold appearance. Flavors of citrus and substantial hops. Light bodied and thick textured, this beer is very drinkable and kinda delish.

Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours murky brown with a small off-white head. Floral aroma right off the bat, followed by bread and citrus. Flavor is apricot, some citrus, pine, resin. It’s fine.

Dark copper pour with off white head. Citrus with pine nose. Flavor has orange zest, lemon with hint of roasted malt on the finish. Nice bitter finish.
