Had on tap—and picked up a growler to go. Delicious!

This pours an amber-orange auburn-tinged with nice foaming.

There’s a big, piney-citrusy aroma followed by some light straw. On the flavor I get a lot of bittersweet citrus with a pleasing bitterness and a piney-resiny dry finish. There’s more heft to this than the West Coast IPAs I’ve grown accustomed to—but it’s consistent enough with the other Michigan IPAs that come to mind (Two Hearted anyone?) that I think it’s far to say there might be a regional influence to the style at this point.

A - Pours a dark burnt orange with a full 3 fingers of foamy whit head, amazing retention, nice sticky lacing on the glass.

S - Citrus hops, big bouquet of flowers, faint malts in the the back of the nose.

T - The taste follows the nose nicely. A really juicy citrus hop presence, nicely balanced with some malts to create a medium bodied kick ass IPA. A drying taste bud snapping finish makes you want to keep coming back for more.

O - Cheers to one helluva American IPA right here in the mitten.
