Appearance: misty amber body with an off-white head and on the lacing front … not much. The little bit that there is clings to the glass.
Aroma: nice citrus nose reminding me of a citrus peel, sweet grains, sour bread; as it warms the citrus note reminds me of white grapefruit
Flavors: sweet-sour going on; pink grapefruit with a white grapefruit bite, sweet grains, sour dough bread, toasted caramel malts,
Mouthfeel: oily hops, sweet-sour, bitter notes hit the mid and finish, lingering citrus bite on the aftertaste,
To the Point: I had this ale at a local South Lyon Michigan Pub and they told me the brewery was down the road. Somehow I found my way there. Strange how that happens. I like this IPA. If you live in the area it is worth the drive – they have some other great flavors to try.

A nice American IPA, a bit too heavy on the cascade for my taste. That white grapefruit rind character makes for a pleasant nose, but when that type of bitterness starts to obscure other aspects of the beer, it gets a bit unbalanced. There is a nice estery quality that can be discerned past the grapefruit that has floral and slight bubble gum character. The finish is on the dry side with a bitterness that seems to be more of a malt character than a hop character (sort of what you might expect from the addition of rye).

A- A hazy, luminescent orange liquid with a thick and craggy bone white head that has amazing retention. Perfect for the style.
S- Orange rind, flowers, pine, mint, and caramel. Pretty well rounded and intriguing.
T- Orange rind, pine, flowers, and caramel. A little more subtle than the aroma implied.
M- A creamy, slightly oily body. Seems a touch undercarbonated.
O- A very solid IPA that is a bit on the mellow side but drinks really nicely.
