3.51/5 rDev -8.6%
Served from bottle into tulip glass.
P: Golden Amber with 1 finger white head.
S: Smells of tropical fruits, slight pine in there too.
T: Similar to smell with the tropical fruits, seems like a good balance between the pine and fruity characteristics.
M: Good mouthfeel, carbonation seems just right.
O: I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I didn't have high expectations going into this one but it was actually pretty good. I didn't blow me out of the water or anything but I could see myself drinking again. Nice solid IPA with the hops in the right places.

Very hazy appearance, probably at the bottom of the keg. Couldnt pick up too much aroma either. Taste had grassy and lemony notes to it. Dammit I enjoy these more herbal hops, everyone needs to get off the citrus hop band wagon and open your horizons. This isn't green Bush's best offering but I'm always excited to see what they have in store.

12.13.12 served on tap at Ashley's Westland.
In the pint, this looks like a textbook pub pour with a firm half inch of bubbly white head. It dissipates and goes the top of the glass a rather cratered appearance. The color is one of a rich tobacco hue, calling to mind a nice dark aled identity.
The smell is malt-dominant, nothing offensive. A very light hop sting comes across, but nothing overbearing as far as IPAs go.
Tastes malty as well, with a nice creamy hop finish. Has a tartness to it in the back of my mouth, weirdly reminiscent of guarana soda. There are some sweet pine notes and a faint sweet grapefruit essence; nothing leaps in front of the others as far as flavors go. Leaves an airy rose flavor lingering in my throat. This is very enjoyable for a mild IPA.
Mouthfeel is very smooth, and makes a pint go down like I was in my 20s again. I could easily get down on this beer anytime, with a meal, etc. it's very easy-drinking.
Overall, I like this beer for reasons I don't like other IPAs, and would recommend it to anyone who says IPAs are too hoppy. In all honesty, it wasn't what I was expecting after trying Brother Benjamin from the same brewery, but I do enjoy it. Would definitely order it again.

Single finger head with amazing retention and nice lacing on a murky golden with amber hues body. Aroma of toasted malts, and hop varieties including earthy, mild citrus and floral. Flavors of toasted caramel malts, tart citrus, light pine resin and grassy hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A nice IPA. Not memorable or complex but a nice traditional member of the style.

On tap at Headquarters, served in a footed tulip glass. Copper orange color, slightly hazy, but bright when held to the light. An initial fingers width of foam, settling down to a broken skim and ring around the edges after a few sips.
Resiny pine and caramel malt aromas, pretty solid and standard for an IPA. Taste has more dry resiny hop bitterness, piney with some sweet caramel and bready malt notes in the middle. Finishes dry. Medium bodied with an even level of carbonation. A firm bitterness level, mildly sweet middle, dry finish. Pretty textbook IPA that satisfies the hop craving.

On tap at GB, served in a mug.
Pour: Hazy, nearly cloudy orange with a finger plus of off white head. Some lacing.
Smell: Nice citrus and caramel. Some dank pine sneaks in, but only just. Pretty straightforward.
Taste: Follows the nose with nice citrus orange and a sweet caramel backbone. The typical GB cloying sweetness sneaks in and distracts immensely from the enjoyable aspects of this brew.
Mouthfeel: Pretty solidly drinkable, but again, far too sweet for the style.
Overall: A good go to at the brewpub, but GB needs to figure out the situation with how sweet most of their beer is.

12oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks to erikkoppin
Pours clouded auburn with a thick layer of white head resting on top. Bubbly and persistent, the head slowly fades into a collar with patchy lacing on the glass.
Relatively mellow citrus hops with bread crust and caramel in the nose. Semi-balanced sweet and bitter character.
Bitter and dry up front with pine and citrus peel. Grain, cereal, and bread in the backbone followed by some predictable caramel sweetness. I was searching for something else in here, but there wasn't much else to be found. Finishes bitter and dry with a residual burnt sugar sweetness.
Medium body, higher carbonation, sticky, dry and biting on the tongue. I love trying new IPAs and I love trying new local breweries - but this one is a miss for me.

1496th Review on BA
Bottle to Speigleau small tulip
No bottle date
Thanks to ErikKoppin for this one.
App- When it poured out at 1st it was a bit of a honey orange that was a wee bit hazy and unfiltered. A solid two finger off white, thick head was there that was quite long lasting with some amazing cling.
Smell- Very grassy. Wet and cut but not fresh cut football practice. Hoppy and small citrus. A small amount of malt balances it all out. There is a tinge to it that I can't place but didnt knock my thought of it down.
Tastse- This was a moderately bitter and balanced IPA. It had a nice hop flavor with a small citrus. Bits of wheat and spice come on the finish and a little bit of the grass flavors developed in the middle.
Mouth- A solid medium body on this one with a gentle but medium and semi creamy carbonation. Residual citrus zest and thick malt flavors.
Drink- It's good and solid. A great IPA, not there yet. Only because not in my wheelhouse of flavors that I generally enjoy more than the bill on this one. I'd have again at a party in the midwest, but wouldnt seek it in trade.
