On tap at a bar called Dark Horse in Chicago. I thought this one was decent. Dry, light body. Slightly hoppy. Was also drinking an Anti-Hero at the same time, so this one kind of got overshadowed.

A little thin compared to many IPAs. Many better just from Michigan.

Pours a hazy orangey amber with a thick creamy white head. The head has moderate retention and leaves some soapy lacing. The downside is the sizable quantity of visible particulate hanging in the beer. I'm all for bottle conditioning but tell me so I don't pour it in my beer. No brewed on or drink-by date. The aroma is nice with mild floral and citrus notes. The taste is OK. Pretty bland, actually. Nothing very noteworthy about it. The body is thinner for what I think they're shooting for. It's not bad, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

very dark amber, unfiltered. small head.
aroma is sweet and malty, some hop.
taste is malty and sweet; lots of bitterness but nothing sharp and defined. well balanced but just not great. easy to drink, a great brew. overall i'd rate it a high 4.25. very good.

The color of this beer was a dark amber, almost with a hint of gold to it. There was a light foam and consistent head to it. The smell is malty and has some citrus notes to it. The taste had obvious strong hops, and a little bit of pine taste to it. The citrus notes are coming through in the taste as well. It has a crisp full bodied finish, complex and nicely balanced. Great Michigan IPA!
