COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA is packed with American hops that are added to every stage of the brewing process. Big notes of citrus in the aroma are complimented by a smooth bitterness and crisp, piney finish. We added a f*** ton of hops to this beer in hops that we please even the pickiest of hop heads.

16 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours crystal clear golden/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, lightly toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.25%. Overall this is a fantastic IPA! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the increasingly bitter/drying/resinous finish. Insanely dank and vibrant on hop complexity; nice malt backbone, with no residual sweetness. A highly enjoyable offering.

Draft at the Brewery. Appearance is a little thin with not much head. Initial taste is just that. Kind of thin. But rounds out with fresh citrus and finishes very smooth. I really like this beer for after dinner.

Nice nose of citrus. Good amount of citrus hops that are offset by a mild pine hop taste. Good finish that is dry enough to make you want the next sip!

Dark yellow/light orange pour, thin ring of white head. Juicy citrus hop aroma, tropical fruit, orange honey. Softer carbonation, viscous mouthfeel, finishes super clean. Flavor has dank hops with lots of orange citrus too, malt adds texture more than flavor, bitter pone flavor at finish. Nice juicy IPA that finishes bitter.

Tap @ Brewery, East Lansing, MI. Great aroma, stone fruit and nectarine. Muted hop flavour, balanced with honey sweetness. Finish of passion fruit with creeping resin.

On tap at brewery. Aroma of strong floral hops. Slightly murky gold with a thin white head. Taste is very hoppy but not overpowering, good floral flavor and a hint of citrus. Nice long finish fairly dry. Overall I’d very nice.

From notes. Enjoyed this one at the Brew Crew Bash in Ann Arbor on May 21. This one was poured from a 32 oz crowler. The pour is a foggy lighter gold color with a thicker white, dense head that fades slowly. The hops on this one are surprisingly numerous. The bitterness on the nose is great. It’s got a lovely resin dominance with a slight citrus punch, and even a little bit of a floral hop. There are a ton here. It’s nicely balanced for the number of different additions from the hops. The flavor is a little messier. There is a lot of bittering hops, but the citrus, floral, and resin flavors try to poke through. There isn’t really a set layering to them, they’re all competing for front and center. It’s interesting. The bitterness just really blows you away here. The mouth feel is decent. There is a nice body to it and a little bit of a light carbonation that helps let the hops dissipate quickly. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter, with a grassy floral citrus blast moving through as well. It’s an interesting brew.
