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.
Serving type: growler

On tap @ twisted rooster.
A- Amber, with almostca burgundy tint. Minimal thin white head.
S- Combo of sweet & sour, but very balanced. Definitely a hoppy smell.
T- Grapefruit, bready, w/ clear citrus hops on the back.
M- mid to full bodied.
O- A pretty decent IPA. Above average for sure, & definitely worth a try, but not the best.

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).
