3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A decent pale ale with some delicious hops that provide a bitter, dry finish.
Solid pale that is mellow and balanced. Toasted caramel. Bitter bite at finish, but it doesn’t load up or linger. lumber_jack32 (10) - - FEB 26, 2015
Smells like a fresh summers eve during winter. Boasts a hell of a bite with a crisp clean finish. Kinda like a woman in a binki. lukedarock (246) - Howell, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Opaque not much of a looker, very light scent, the mid size body of this beer works great with grapefruit and feels wonderful on the tounge, tasty brew Mr_Abner (386) - Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit. Lightly fruity taste with a medium bitterness. Average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly bitter finish. BigBeer45 (1557) - Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Sampled from a bottle,
this ale had medium orange-copper pour and gave a almost two finger white cover that receded to a layer of bubbles, it left nice spots and small fingers of lacing,
the nose had aromas of grass, grapefruit citrus and floral hops with toasted malt, orange, sugar and malt sweetness,
it had flavors of citrus and grass hops that had a touch of pine to them, toasted malt, some orange fruit and bread, it had a little sweetness,
the finish had hop bitterness with grass and some toasted malt following, the hops linger on the tongue a bit,
the mouth feel was light and creamy, it had average carbonation,
this beer had a hoppy nose and flavor with some malt to give some balance, a nice light hoppy IPA drink.

Nice drinking ipa. Caramel aroma with piney hops. Sweet caramel taste, and bitter, piney hops. Medium bodied beer. Overall a good ipa, might get again. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Clear gold pour with a small rocky head that fades to a messy film and leaves some lacing. Aroma is very dank and oily. Weed, pine, wood, flowers, grapefruit, and pineapple. Tastes like dank fruit juice with a bitter finish. Juicy up front with pineapple, oranges, and grapefruit. Dank, bitter, and oily finish with weed, pine, toast and wood. Pretty complex for a 5% IPA.

Nice pine and grapefruit aroma. Pours a hazy orangish-amber with a thin white head. Touch of caramel sweetness, going to strong grapefruit notes, and a lingering bitter finish. A very nice, drinkable IPA. Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2014
A very well made citrusy, resiny, fairly dank IPA. Lots to enjoy here. The strong malt backbone just gives this a more rounded body to complement the other pieces. Great stuff from Shorts.
