3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex earthy and sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

These Michigan breweries love the herbal, spicier IPAs, and I do too, a solid offering on draft.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. (Siciliano’s) Grand Rapids, MI.
A bit cloudy amber colour with a ridiculously big foamy off-white head.
I’m not sure if this is supposed to be like this but as there’s no bottling and best before date I can’t say how old this bottle is.
Belgian style yeast... weird... piney and fruity hops... no bitterness... spices? in the aroma.
The aroma is closer to a Belgian Ale or Saison than a regular American IPA.
The flavour is also quite Belgian... now this is strange. Piney and resiny hops, Belgian yeast and moderate bitterness in the flavour.
Not bad at all... just something I didn’t quite expect.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a light fruit note with citrus and a strong grain backbone. Flavor has light citrus and flora with backing grassy hops and grain.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sparkling gold pour, small white head. Nice grassy and herbal hops in the aroma. Flavor is a great blend of hops...grassy, earthy, juicy bitterness and just the right malt backbone. Good stuff!

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Never heard of this brewery but it looks interesting. Pours a muddy orangish brown appearance with a tan head. Appears to be unfiltered. Caramel, toasty malty, a touch nutty, piney, spicy hoppy, light chocolate aroma. A bit tangy, grapefruit citrusy, toasty malty, caramel, slightly herbal flavor. Somewhat decent but also somewhat not pleasant.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy dark amber orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had pine, toasted bread, orange peel, mild earth tones, some caramel and sweet bread malts. Decent amount of bitterness with a decent malt base. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Wine & Brew, shared with robotopera. Mostly hazy darker amber color. Bigger off-white head. Good thicker lace. Nice spicy, hoppy citrusy aroma, light caramel malt. Bigger body. Smooth, softer, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice moderate bitter, spicy, light to medium sweet malt taste. Tasty IPA with a good malt profile, but a good tropical fruit spiciness too. Delicious.
