This is my first experience with Saugatuck brewing and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The beer pours a handsome orange copper hue with a generous white head that gives way to a decent amount of lacing and a thick resinous white film. The aroma is very piney and citrusy, reminiscent of good west coast ipas. The flavor delivers exactly what the nose foretold. Lots of hoppy bitterness up front followed by a mild malty sweetness and finishing with an awesome coating of bitterness. All in all not the greatest ipa I've had and nothing that stands out from hundreds of other offerings but a damn good and easy drinking ale none the less.

The head on this beer, just slightly tinted, starts off fluffy and creamy and settles to a craggy, billowing two fingers. Beyond that, it settles slowly, getting heavier as it does until it almost looks like a solid, though it does settle to a thick, fat island. All the while, it leaves chunky webbing clinging stickily to the top of the glass, followed by spotting.
There's a bright citrus hops bouquet with an accompaniment of floral bitterness and a touch of pine. It's mostly bright and juicy with some tropical fruits as well as citrus and the zest along with it, but it's balanced by mildly sweet malts with a bready character.
The pine and citrus combo is what hits the tongue at first, with just a light resinous pith. A little saltiness flashes in before leafy rawness, then the complementing caramel and breads. It drifts off a little at the end, but it's pretty impressive until then.
The feel is creamy with a light nip off a soft carbonation in a medium body that edges toward the lighter side.
