COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The devil made us do it. From the ABV and IBU figures to the fiendish use of Cascade, Perle and Willamette hops, Lucifer was whispering in our ears the entire time. Citrus and pine scents greet you and are followed by the sharp bitterness expected of an IPA. The beers true wickedness is revealed in the smooth Pale, Crystal 30 and wheat malts that surreptitiously broaden the beers appeal to more than just hopheads.

Heavy on the citrus flavors. Floral hops, oranges, citrus peel, and grains. A bit unfiltered and similar to a wheat in ways.

Lil stubby from Belmont Party Supply, Dayton. Wee gusher with a massive soapy head. Deep orange body emerges, faintly cloudy. Very nice nose of understated leafy hops that reveal a more potent dimension the further you get into it (although its undersold a bit by a fairly thin body). Certainly borne out in the taste, which is dank and has a long, dry finish. Pine, yeast, and some floral hops in there for balance. Clean and refreshing.

I stumbled on this in the middle of nowhere Michigan and what a terrific find. Great IPA. Its pleasantly hoppy on the palate. The color is average for an IPA, so no surprises there. Ill need to special order this out in Chicago soon.

Tasted from the bottle, very cool bottle I should say. Great hazy straw color, big foamy head. Taste is citrusy but has an alcohol laced taste. Feel is pretty carbonated but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium body and carbonation. Grapefruit, peach, and apricot flavor. Peach aroma. Clear amber body. Low-medium hop, which was well balanced with the malt.

A great big hop punch offset with a slight malty sweetness produces a perfect go-to IPA. Carbonation produces a thick grassy head of hoppiness that is added bonus of pouring a pint of one of these bad boys.

Poured into a snifter. I love the funny little medicine bottle it comes in. 3.0 A: First pour was nearly asll head. It took a long ass time to get a full glass. Opaque amber brown color. Three fingers of off-white, airy froth. Retention is great, but the head itself is ugly. Some lacing left. 3.0 S: Floral and citrusy hop aroma, though the overall vibe is more earthy. Caramel maltiness with a heavy yeastiness. A little soapy. Bready from the yeastiness. 3.5 T: Taste is well balanced with malts and hops. Fairly strong caramel flavor with a strong malt backbone overall. Orange citrus from the hops with some herbal and earthy notes. The yeastiness is again strong, but it somehow works well in the taste. 3.5 M: Medium body. Surprisingly not overcarbonated (and I didnt even aggitate it much). Reasonably creamy and fairly smooth. 3.0 D: Not a bad IPA, but heavy on the yeast. If you like that kind of brew, youll love this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-05-2011 20:27:51

Good, easy drinking IPA. Aroma of strong citrus bursting through the malt, and a crisp, clean, extremely hoppy up front taste that finishes a bit bitter. As far as IPAs go, this one is somewhat pedestrian, but solid nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours copper with nearly 3 fingers of puffywhite head. gobs of lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and a bit of pine. Balanced though somewhat bland taste - some hoppy bitterness, crystal malt. A bit rough in the finish. Id consider it somewhere between a session ale and a british pale ale - I prefer more hop forward. Its good enough, just not as an American IPA. Love the stubby bottle though..
