COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
MIDWEST INDIA PALE ALE
The devil is in the details. The light touch of pale and wheat malts. Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe and Chinook hops. Massive hops additions imbue a wicked bitterness and the intense floral aromas of citrus and lush tropical fruit. Hoppy, hoppy, rich and golden.

ChiGuy68 (616) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Tasted on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. It poured a almost clear amber with an off white head and fairly solid lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Well hopped taste with a slightly bitter finish.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized ivory colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated body semi-opaque orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering deep hoppy aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2017
Rated on 3-30-2017. This bottled beer’s appearance is a large frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting, transparent amber body, slow rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruit, toffee, fruity, alcohol, caramel, and very, very malty. The flavor presents moderate-heavy bitterness, citrus hops, tropical fruit, toffee, spicy, bready, some booziness, sweet, caramel, and very, very malty. The mouthfeel is lively-heavy carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. A quaffable sipping beer with a long bitter finish. For this beer’s style, it is very malty tasting and tastes more like an American Strong/Belgium Strong beer. Nonetheless, it is worth trying.

A very solid IPA with strong alcohol and hops throughout. With a malty backbone this beer comes out well-balanced. A bright start with a strong finish.

bottle. Best part of this beer is the packaging. Very underwheling imperial ipa. over abundance of malts made an odd beer

gpekar (497) - Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Poured a clear golden amber with a touch of copper. There was a tall light beige foamy head that became slightly creamy as it settled. There were a lot of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The predominate aroma was sweet caramel malt, some biscuit and a hint of chocolate. The beer had a slightly silky feel with a big caramel malt sweetness. It took awhile for the hops to cut through the malt and give a nice citrus bitterness in the middle and try to balance off the huge amount of malt sweetness. I liked this beer a lot, but it seemed to me that the hops was overpowered by the malt sweetness. It needed more hops or less malt to be a really great tasting beer.

screigh (765) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy orange color the thinnest white head with a little lacing. A spicy malt aroma. A weird mix of a woodsy flavor mixed with a sugary malt. The alcohol flavor reminds me a bit of the aroma of paint. While my review may come off as horrible there is something pleasing in this mix and I could see it being amazing to the right person.

jgb9348 (6478) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Deep super hazy golden and lightly copper coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of resin, alcohol, malt, rich hops, caramel and a good deal of toffee. Full-bodied; Strong alcohol and pungent malt flavours throughout with a big hop presence, but bigger malt and alcohol note that shows very strongly. Aftertaste shows some dry hops, a lot of earth, nuts and especially caramelised/toffee sweetness on the finish with a big alcohol burn to get past. Overall, a good, but slightly too strong beer with a lot of flavours and alcohol tastes instead of more of a complex hop vibe. Regardless, still nice to sample, especially with the stubby bottle. I sampled this stubby 12 ounce bottle purchased from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 for US$3,39 sampled at home in Washington on 23-June-2016.
