Draft in a tulip at the Gage, Michigan Ave. Well, almost every beer they serve comes in a tap. But for this style it’s appropriate. Very slight haze of a light copper beer with a thin head. Smell of American IPA hops, citrus and pine from likely Cascade and Columbia, maybe some Amarillo. But I can also smell some warm malts at the same time. Tasting hands the baton back to the hops, which are more bitter than the bouquet. Strong backbone of malts slowly reasserts itself. Good for sipping with the gage’s signature fish & chips (French Fries more than the English style chips, I believe).
From can poured into a pint glass. Great color, subtle aroma. Strong hoppy flavor, but not overly bitter. Very drinkable. Would get again.

Copper/orange pour,1 finger off white head.masive hops bitterness which lingers in the after taste. slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 11, 2017
Not quite clear orange from the can.
Dated 6/15 (had on 7/9) Smelled and tasted old and boring, to the point my wife made a face and handed it right back. Some pine and fruit underneath malt and a little cardboard. Not sure what’s goin on here, but doesn’t make me want to try again if this is fresh. mike67 (1197) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2017
12 oz can. Pours orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and crisp. Citrusy, piney hops dominate the palate with bready malt and tropical fruit in the background. Finish is long and very hoppy. Excellent brew.

Earthy hoppy aromas, grassy, resinous. Orange with a fairly lasting white head. Dry, earthy, hoppy. Medium bodied.

A doughy IPA. Pours medium gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is citrus pith and yeast. Flavor is variety of hops - citrus, resin, a little tropical, all combined with an unusual doughy/ yeast base. Bitter hits first then smooths out with a hint of sweet, Palate is medium bodied. Overall, a pleasant IPA, with a unusual yeasty note. JorgeLee (2117) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Can, Binny’s Lincoln Park. Burnished golden colour, white foam. Some initial sweetness from the malt, fairly full and sweet, then a big resinous bitterness, some pine, a little bitter grapefruit. Old school bitter IPA, no messing with juicy fruits here, drinks nicely. Frudel (252) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2017
Canned. Orange almost amber liquid with a white head. Nose is malty, peach, grapefruit, resin. Decent classic IPA, lots of malt taste with a pine resin bitterness. Quite enjoyable, crisp bubble and smooth texture. ccas (2) - - MAY 23, 2017 does not count
One of the most balanced tasting ipas i have had. A very solid well rounded ipa. Top 5 fav to date.

Bue à la pression. Belle IPA, assez classique, plutôt résineuse. Finale longue et amère comme on les aime.
