Can. Pours a clear very pale yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of citrus and grass with a light sweet grain backbone. Flavor has earthy citrus with a bit of sweet grain and citrus rind backing. superspak (6662) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2018
12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent local release. Pours fairly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, wheat, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an awesome NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshingly easy to drink; with the mellowly bitter/drying finish, never aggressive. Mosaic and Citra hops. Awesome balance of juicy and dank hop complexity; nice bready malt backbone, with mild residual sweetness. A really enjoyable offering; and spot on style example, despite no significant haze. Ahuth (665) - Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2017

Tap at 2017 Michigan winter beer festival. Hazy golden with one finger head. Juicy ipa with a lot of citrus and low bitterness. This style doesn't have much variation, but I really enjoyed this.

Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a two centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of citrus, bright apples, pear and assertive herbal and grassy hops - nice throughout with a decidedly grassy and tropical fruit flavoured hop bite. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal flavours with a dose of pine, grain, tropical fruits, citrus and balanced nicely with a good deal of malt and some pleasant sugars, mainly all from the fruits. Aftertaste shows a lot of hop flavours without much bitterness, no real pungency and more of a sweet tropical fruit flavour than anything else near the end. Overall, a nice and refreshing beer that shows like a lighter APA, but has some good hop qualities and complexities, just no real bitterness from hops, which is a surprising fact, but a good one! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased by my Dad at Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 13-June-2017 for US$2,09 sampled at home in Washington on 28-August-2017 - Thanks Dad! agl108 (1307) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2017
12 oz. can at Hoxeyville. Thanks to the brewer for a couple cans. Poured hazy orange with eggshell white head. Tropical citrus, peach, pineapple flavors. Big and juicy with a soft mouth feel. M-43’s equal in my book. Glad I was able to have both at Hoxeyville. Mark_Eck (1998) - - AUG 12, 2017
Can. Pours a cloudy orangish color. Aroma and taste are citrus and some fruitiness. Hopper8 (304) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 It’s just not there. The aroma is simple tropical floral Hops, and that translates to the taste. The body is very light and there is a too much of a drying effect for a juicy IPA. But it's juicy non the less. It's pretty good.
