growler purchased at the brewery april 28/2011 and kept refrigerated. sampled may 6/2011.
pours crystal clear deep amber with a small dense cream coloured head. the head drops slowly and leaves a fine network of intricate lace.
aroma is excellent. citrus and pine. tangerine, orange, grapefruit. bit of blood orange. whole wheat bread, perhaps with just a hint of toasting. faint cracker and biscuit. caramel. light alcohol.
taste is great. a beautiful citrus blend. orange, tangerine, grapefruit, and blood orange. pine. lightly toasted whole wheat bread. light cracker and biscuit. light caramel and toffee. medium bitterness level. light alcohol. just a touch of herbal and woody character.
mouthfeel is great. medium body with a drying character from the hops. medium carbonation level.
drinkability is great. this is definitely one of my favourite american ipas, and my favourite from michigan. great hop depth. excellent balance. really, everything i look for in an american ipa.
