Poured up on tap, at Champs at the DTW airport, where it exhibits a clear gold body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up some nice citrus and a pineapple like note as well as a modest malty note in the background. The taste delivers modest citrus hop bitterness and some sweet citrus candy like juiciness. Nice. It glides like that right into the finish.

Tap @ Four Points by Sheraton - DTW: Sweet citrus hop aroma with a clear gold appearance. Great IPA without being too over the top on the hops.

Raggedy ass beer, huh? Doesn’t exactly sell itself like the dulcet tones of “BLATZ”! , the stylistic high point of that 50s commercial screaming , “Hey Mabel, Black Label!” or even someone yelling, “How about a double dose of that bitch!” No indeed. And yet unlike a platter of skunk piss, this junk was semi-palatable. I would not shy away from it; nor would I dive into headlong…..unless I was too benumbed by a caseful of Blatz to know shame no more. So when looking to throw caution to the breeze and cast your better judgement aside stick with Blatz, the preferred drink of 2/7 death row inmates. Don’t question it, drink it. I’ve been to Milwaukee so I ought to know.

Draught at the Bailey's Sports Grille, Dearborn, MI. Clear golden color with a small white head. Fruity hops, moderate bitterness and malt in the aroma. The flavor is resiny hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and caramel malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holtguy (175) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Pours gold with fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, grapefruit. Flavor is sweet malty and floral, citrus, with with fairly decent bitterness that’s not overpowering. Bitterness lingers. Good lacing on the glass. Malt bill a little too sweet making it seem a tad unbalanced.
