India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

My personal favorite IPA. Pleasing to the eyes, nose, and mouth. Rich copper color with a creamy head. Very up front with the hop flavor, with a crisp bittersweet finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours copper and produces a nice off-white head. Aroma is bitter with citrusy bite right off the bat but also floral notes. The taste is nicely balanced with sweet malts and hops complimenting each other. The hops are the star here with citrus/resin shining without overpowering. A nice strong bitter finish with a medium light mouth feel. As IPAs go this one is outstanding with a balance that make this big hoppy beer a treat bottle after bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 Appearance: Pours a hazy copper body with a large, foamy white head. Smell: Pale malt aroma with notes of flowers, zesty citrus, and cooked pineapple rings. Taste: Pale maltiness with a light touch of caramel sweetness. Fruity, even juicy citrus and pineapple flavors. Moderate bitterness and acidity. Crisp, relatively clean finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A fine example of an IPA!

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Great brew. Aroma is heavy hops with apple and a dash of oak. Pours a dark yellow with a frothy off-white head with excellent lacing. Taste is beautifully IPA with a nice bitter finish over its long duration. Light to medium body, creamy mouthfeel with something just south of lively carbonation. A nice warming finish. Leaves me feeling exceptionally refreshed, I could drink a lot of this stuff!
re-rate courtesy of ucusty: Pours with a hazy yellow body with an off-white head that leaves strong lacing. Aroma of grapefruity hops, toffee, some apple, lemon hops and a bit of barnyard (odd). Taste is a very malty and balanced IPA. Liveley carbonation. Ar:8 Ap:8 F:8 M:4 O:18 (odd that the re-rate is the same as the original).

Bottle dated 4/25/2012. Consumed 1 month later. Pours with a crystal clear golden hued body with a big frothy white head that leaves good lacing. Aromas are floral, citrusy, grapefruit, tangerine, light pine. Medium iced tea. Light bready, caramel malt structure. Pretty clean ester wise. Flavors are of citrus, pine, grapefruit, corn nuts. A touch too sweet for my tastes, but still pretty good. Medium bitterness overall that doesnít linger. Hops are still the star, but there is some balance. Medium bodied, slightly fuller carbonation than expected. Pretty solid.

Draught @ Scottyís Brewhouse in Indianapolis. Amber color w/ nice aromas (unfortunately I had a stuffy nose). This was sweeter than usual with a blend of citrus flavors and hops. Extremely smooth finish with plenty of lacing on the glass. This beer makes a perfect 6 pack for friends because it is not overpowering, bitter, or too sweet.

From a bottle. Pours amber color. Aroma of huge piney. citrusy, floral hops. Taste is sweet from the malts and the cirtusy hops with some sticky piney flavors that coat your mouth. Very good IPA.
