3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a decent head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Clean flavor featuring a whole lot of hops - floral, citrus, pine, and quite bitter. A hint of pilsener character at the start of the sip. Not incredibly complex, but well-made and a good hop-driven IPA. A bit astringent on the finish.
Appearance: Deep copper. Hazy. Thin layer of off white foam.
Nose: Lightly bitter with floral and citrus hops. Bright and a little bittersweet
Taste: medium to lighter roasted malt. Lightly sweet transitioning into floral and citrus bitters. Ending a bit citrus juicy
Body: medium and lively
Parting thoughts: Not a bad little IPA. Pretty by the numbers, but refreshing and drinkable.

12floz bottle (BBD 04.12.2017) bought as a single for $1.50, 7.7% ABV, 70 IBUs, poured into a mug glass. Appears amber in color with one finger of bubbly head. The aroma is mostly earthy, but also has some lemon zest. Body is medium-full, alcohol is not totally hidden behind the hops. Grapefruit, buttered toasted bread, and orange rind comprise a more of a bitter (moderate) than a fruity/juicy hop based American IPA. Pretty good stuff here. I like that there is some semblance of a malt presence. I would like the alcohol content to be about 1% lower though. davismeadors (1) - Upland, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2017 does not count

Bottle from J’s. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Light peach aromas with lots of honey. Clean on the palate, but a tad boozy. More honey flavors. Sweet finish with a lingering honey and bitterness. Habanero (4771) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2016
Bottled. Pours clear deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, florral hops and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice IPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 ChiGuy68 (605) - Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear golden hue with a small white head. Aroma of hops, grapefruit, banana, and mild spice. Taste of hops and malt with a slightly bitter finish. A decent, mild mannered ipa. mambossa (337) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Bottled day-of from brewery. Clear, luminescent gold. Tangerine, orange, and papaya heavy on the nose, bit of candied lemon skin. Cereal and gently spiced malt. Flavor has a medium body with ripe lemon and orange, some papaya, whiteflower, and super soft notes of eucalyptus. Medium dry, noticeable malt presence. An easygoing, tamed IPA with an oily linger with some tinge of fresh alpha acid. uvajed (188) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Another fantastic beer from Great Lakes that doesn’t skimp on anything. Looks nice in the glass - hazy amber, white head. Nose is spicy hops, citrus and maybe pepper. The hop flavor is strong but not over-done, and with a definite tang. A really well-done brew that is not for the uninitiated but perfectly drinkable for IPA fans. Bonus points for being local and available all over the place here (NE Ohio), both bottled and on tap.
