Just tried this out of the bottle. Poured a golden/straw color, I felt it was a bit pale for an IPA but the head was nice and the carbonation was adequate. It was easy on the palette and very tasty with a definite grapefruit taste, perhaps its finished with Amarillo hops? It didnt have the big hop nose of most IPAs I think this in perhaps more in the British style but it is a very good beer and I definitely recommend it to any IPA fans.

Yellow/copper with a good sized white head. Somewhat musty aroma with some grassy hops, medium sweet. Rather bitter, lots of noble hops, just a bit of sweetness. Not a run of the mill c-hop IPA. Interesting.

Shared by badgerben. This is a solid pale ale. Herbal hop aroma. Gold color, clear and lightly carbonated. Flavor is mild hops. On the mild side, I am surprised to see the abv is so high.

Aroma of hops and pine. Golden pour with no head. Looks kind of flat except for some small bubbling. Medium to thick mouthfeel. Strong hoppiness with a fizz is the best way to describe this beer. A little malt in the background but not much. Tastes like it came from the earth with the earthy and pine. I can see shooting at some food and up from the ground came this...blah...I am a dork.

Hm. Not bad. Left a nice lingering bite in the back of my mouth. Not much else to report here. This is tasty, and par for the course.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle poured a clear golden color with a nice white head. The aroma was mildly hoppy with some caramel. Taste was fairly bitter with a clean crisp hop finish. Not too much else going on in this one except being clean and easy to drink.

nice and tasty little brew. The thing I like about Great Lakes is that they forgot the excess in favor of what tastes good. Ill be the first to say that this is not an over the top IPA, but it qualifies as one of the most quaffable. Reminds me of Goose Islands....

badgerben (4970) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Received in a trade from Crizay. Thanks! Golden color with no head. Strong, earthy hop aroma. The flavor is oddly wheaty, but it seems to work well. Moderate raw hop flavor with a little emphasis on pine and earth hops. Good.

Skyview (5824) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2007
A 12 oz bottle shared by Badgerben. Pours a light clear golden yellow brew with a lasting white head. Aroma is piney, lemony citrus hops with some herbal spice. Taste is a well balanced IPA with bitter piney and flowery hop flavors. Finish is herbal hop and lightly bitter.

(12oz bottle, thanks Drew) Large and beautiful off-white head atop a crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, apple. Taste is medium sweet, floral/pine, some fruity. Dry finish. Medium body, some resin. Alcohol not noticeable.
