Notes/Commercial Description:
An India Pale Ale style well suited for adventurous trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and an incredibly floral aroma.

4.08/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Golden straw with great clarity on the pour. 2 Fingers of puffy white head. A nice film forms on top, giving a nice level of lacing.

Citrus hop aromas dominate with a crisp clean zing. Orange zest and nice toffee-esque malt base that is rather hidden, but tries to come out.

A lot of balance is achieved, but the main hop profile is rather foreboding. Orange zest with a bread/caramel malt backing. Something similar to a soapy finish. A bit sweet, and with the orange, it comes off like watered down orange soda.

Carbonation is a bit high, giving a bubbly mouthfeel at first, followed by a mild syrup finish. Very clean finish, kind of brisque, with no real depth. Yearning for more, but it is a bit lacking. The hop strength overpowers any length of flavors.

For 7.1% ABV, it is a rather drinkable IPA. I could see knocking a few of these down in a night. Might also serve as a good intro into the style.

Bottle to Glass

Bottle a little over two weeks old

Appearance - Poured a hazy copper/orange colour with a nice two fingers of white head

Smell - Typical IPA smell, mango, grapefruit, and a fair amount of orange

Taste - Similar to the smell tropical fruits with orange, nice bitter finish

Overall - A well made IPA, glad I picked up a six pack

Finally getting around to reviewing. The beer pours a mildly hazy copper amber with a thick head that settles to a thick collared ring. Nice lacing too.

Good scent of orange and grapefruit. Well done. A hint of caramel as well, but mostly all about the hops. Taste is similar with plenty of grapefruit. The caramel sweetness finishes with a crisp firm bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a great level of carbonation that comes off very well. Mostly dry finish, but the caramel sweetness lingers.

Great all around IPA that may not have the bells and whistles of today's over amped IBUs or latest hop cultivar, but comes together very well.
