Shared with my uncle on the 4th of july. He really liked it and was surprised that it was made in Ohio where he lives. Poured amber with a white head. Good aroma of pine. Citrus flavor with a hint of caramel.

Growler shared by JaBier: Very aromatic hop blast of citrus. Flavor is very clean and bitter. Well balanced and exactly what it should be. Awesome.

660 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a big, creamy off-white head. Aroma is mainly hops, but not very intense. Flavor is sweet malt, balanced bitter, some pine. This IPA is quite sweet and not very bitter, still quite balanced and kind. Medium body and a long (mild) bitter finish. I like it.

JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2008
On tap at GLBC. Opaque orange copper with a big white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, but paired with a ton of citrusy hops. Flavor starts with hop, then a little booze, with a nice malty finish. Outstanding.

Great Lake Pub. Pours an orange amber body with big malty hoppy aroma. Pine citrus, hop resin, a bit grassy. Warm etoh with the malt to give this one a big finish.

22oz bottle courtesy of crisay. Good citrus fruits aroma on the nose. Orange body with off white head and good lacing. Flavor is a good dose of juicy surgar oranges with a potant dry bittering. Blended well but leaves the palate little dry. Good brew thanks Chris.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2008
March 2008 vintage, stored at 40 degrees since purchase. Pours a dark, murky, auburn red to sienna brown color. A frothy, well retained, cream colored head leaves thick sheets of porous lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma shows big notes of orange and grapefruit hops, a touch of grassiness, and huge toffee malt notes. The hops probably aren’t as crisp as they were when ultra-fresh, but they’re still quite potent. Flavors are big and hoppy, but ultimately leaning towards the malty side. Buttery toffee is prominent, caramel follows, as do big orange juice hops, and a semi-dry, grassy finish. The body is substantial, but not as much as expected. Dry grass and cereal grains linger on the finish. Overall, this is a nice IIPA, but it doesn’t hold a candle to some of the west coast hop bombs. Reminds me of Hoppin Frog Mean Manalishi, in a slightly disappointing sort of way.

22oz, bottle, from most recent batch, kept cold during entire storage time, still hops have faded a bit, but its still quite good, balanced, not as extreme as i may have hoped but spot on from Great Lakes. glad to have tried this IIPA from one of the more conservative breweries. and a hometown favorite
