Very dry.. Crisp. Grows as it warms. Dank bud aroma with a crisp finish. Very drinkable. gonzosauce (196) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Pungent, though straightforward hop aroma. Light lemon-leaning citrus. Uplifting! A bit of haze in a ready-for-summer-golden-orange. Decent head, though quick-fading. A good amount of spicy field grass (not quite rye) balances the hops very well. This is a wonderful tasting beer! Spice maintains just the right amount. Quite impressive that a brewing that has mastered the hopcrushing genre with huma-lupa can do such an awesome balanced IPA to boot. And while I, for one, was alright with the hanging body label, I very much like the high road legal brief sticker on the front of this beer as welll. cramee86 (6) - USA - JUL 6, 2010 does not count
On tap at Shorts. Really good flavor without being too bitter. Smooth. Best beer I tried in my flight of five. malkyore (377) - - APR 25, 2013
Pours a dark amber color. Aroma is fruit citrus and pineapple with a severe hop presence. Taste is pineapple and hops, with hints of citrus and pine. This is a very hoppy beer with not a lot of malt to balance it. This is a great ipa bitter with fruits and a lot of pineapple.... Like more pineapple than I’ve ever seen in a beer ever. sverhage (8) - California, USA - JUN 18, 2013 does not count
bought as a single bottle at AL Wine Castle on 2424 W. Stadium in Ann Arbor. Nice beer. good hops, not over the top. refreshing.

I really like this beer. . . only wish I had a bottle of the orig. hanging frank.
Aroma is subdued grassiness built on sour mash, along with the citrus and pine that provide the foundation.
A bit cloudy, and doesn’t taste like it would look that way. .. but incredibly unique taste, so. . . .
Speaking of taste, I have to say this is one of my favorites. A really substantial IPA that is drinkable at the same time.
I particularly like the evolving taste-- starts at a bubbly grassy feel, then grapefruity and a sweet carmel. Finishes cleaner than you’d think with that much flava.
I like the slightly above average carbonation and substance to the palate. . . this does leave a bit of malty afterglow, but it clears quickly and cleanly.
