Had on August 16, 2012 at the Seven Monks Taproom in Traverse City, Michigan.
Bright, cloudy gold in color, with a luxurious head of frothy foam.
Aroma-Subtle citrus hops hidden under huge cloud deck of foam.
Taste-Super creamy and smooth-Hop bitterness subdued but very tasty citrus flavors prevail. I was blown away by the creaminess, flavor and all-to-easy drinkability of this nitro-tap IPA. A rare treat. More please!

Pours a clear, dark copper color with a thin, whitish head which leaves minimal splotchy lacing.

Aromas begin fairly pungent and fruity with strong, zesty notes of oily lemon, tangerine rinds and some pineapple. As it warms you can detect the modest notes of pale maltiness.

The tastes begin in reverse with the pale maltiness with scant caramel sweetness. Juicy, ripe hop fruit flavors follow with a firm, but not overbearing bitterness. Very slight biscuity tones also emerge but as the cumulative bitterness builds, they fade away.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is dry with a light, lingering bitterness and a pinch of spicy hops.

Overall this is a solid example of an American IPA. It is not overly bitter, with just enough malt balance and an decent aroma.

Bottle at Stubbies in Gainesville. This one pours a bit murky hazy gold, with a creamy small white head. Aroma is nice, with the expected pine hop profile in the smell. But the flavor is lacking and muddled. Dusty, dirty pine flavors with very little bitter, fading into a caramel fruit base as it goes down. This is really more like a weakly hopped pale ale or summer ale. Relatively light bodied but just not much going on, and a bit watered down. Not a good representation of the style.

A: very nice dark golden color

S: hops to the brain. nice smell for an IPA

T: I'd like more bite from the hops

M: Head retained well and laced nicely. I enjoyed swigs and sips with this beer

O: A decent high grav IPA for any night. More kick expected but it would be a nice IPA for the daily indulger

Hoppy IPA DAY! I started the day with Hoptimum by Sierra Nevada (which is effing amazing). This is my second. I hope to knock off a couple more... probably at least Smuttynose since I know it is very good.

I poured this into a DFH, chalice style glass. Looks like the typical orangy IPA with about two fingers of sticky head. This leads to some decent lacing.

I get a bunch of flowers from the top. I was surprised by the lack of citrus.

Flavor was pretty good. I like the fix of hops and decent hopping. It has good balance.

I would say that this is a pretty good IPA. It is a nice departure from those citrus bombs. I recommend trying this out to mix it up.

Pours a slightly hazy golden apricot color with minimal ivory head that leaves substantial lacing as it dissipates into a thin layer of film.

Aroma is resiny, with a fairly bready malt aroma, ending with pine and a hint of citrus.

Flavor is far more brutally hoppy. Resin and pine hit early, carrying strongly into a significantly bitter finish. Undertones of grapefruit pith and perfumey hops add complexity. Tastes like biting on a pine tree at some points. A minty note pervades as it warms. Malt character is definitely an afterthought.

Body is a touch watery, with moderate carbonation, and a bit of hop derived astringency is present at the finish.

Overall, far hoppier in flavor than aroma. Substantial bitterness and hop presence, though bittering hops definitely dominate. More flavoring hops would improve the experience.
