4.19/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Smell: let's start with smell since its the first of the senses that is stimulated as soon as you crack it open. It is a full on on blast of citrus and a little bit of pine. Very pleasing.

Appearance: pours a coppery pale with pretty good clarity and a nice white foamy head. Looks enticing.

Flavor: It has a big bold up front hop bite while still maintaining a caramel-like backbone. While I don't personally like a lot of caramel malt in my IPAs, this one has just enough of it to make it a well thought out beer.

Mouthfeel: it is medium bodied with a nice resiny finish that let's you enjoy the flavors well after the sip.

As my review might be a little biased since I help out at Blackrocks, this review is my honest opinion that I would give to the brewers themselves. Well done for a small brewery that is making a name for themselves.

3.86/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz can poured into a Young's nonic pint.

A- A sloppy pour creates 2-1/2 fingers of frothy, white head that reminds me of homemade whipped cream. Slightly hazy, deep golden body is just a shade or two short of copper and sports light carbonation. The head just won't quit, never dropping below a 1/2 finger or more and leaves awesome stick.

S- Lots of hops. Mostly pine and herbal. Some grapefruit sneaks out later on. It seems quite fresh and very clean. A little sweet tropical fruit.

T- More hops as suggested by the aroma. Very piney and herbal. Malts peak through as cracker-like or a little bready. Malts don't stand out, but add a sweetness to keep the hops in check.

M- Medium body, light carbonation, very dry/clean, light hop bite.

O- This is a very solid IPA. I could see this as my beach, campfire beer due to is availability in 12oz cans. MIT doesn't necessarily stand out with any bells or whistles, but it certainly does the job (good balance, smooth flavors). Some proceeds going to MI trials is icing on the cake.

4.71/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: Golden copper, haze with a swirl of cloudiness, virtually no carbonation. 4 fingers of creamy yellow tinged head with excellent retention, honeycomb lacing.

S: Tropical fruits, passion fruit, pineapple, papaya, fruit punch, all strong and present upon opening the can, as well as light onion, garlic, red pepper.

T: Tropical fruits and pine, vodka all in a balanced mix. Juniper berries, and alcohol reminiscent of gin.

M: Resinous thick body, little carbonation.

O: Excellent beer. Great on all accounts, yet unique in its freshness and in all the qualities I mentioned on the taste.
