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.

I've been waiting to try this beer for a long while, but it has only recently become available in Virginia. To celebrate its arrival in the Old Dominion, I have poured it into my etched Monticello stein, in honor of one of the commonwealth's most famous sons.

It's a slightly cloudy beer, brassy in color, with a thin and resilient head and thin trails of lace. Its aroma is similar to DFH 60 minute, but finer, more delicate, and eminently floral. Marvelous in the mouth -- chewy, with slightly burning grapefruit and pine nicely offset by malt... my word, my word, was this worth the wait.

After you swallow, your mouth tingles slightly, and it seems that the beer is now coming out of your salivary glands! Which is far more pleasant an effect than it probably sounds.

I keep coming back to the word "delicate." That's a strange word, considering that this is such a hoppy brew. But it is, it is delicate. Perhaps balanced is a better word. This is very nice. As it warms, it becomes even more complicated.

This is far too drinkable. I don't usually find beers that make that characteristic so easy to score. I love a moderately-alcoholic IPA that still manages to slap you around a bit. Only, this beer is like being slapped by the most beautiful person you could imagine... and wanting more!

A - Thick white two finger head. No lacing really. Crystal clear amber color. Light carbonation bubble. All sediment was at bottom of bottle so second pour was cloudy.

S - Sweet tropical fruits. Passion fruit, orange, grapefruit.

T - A malty front followed by a citrus orange peel taste with some sweetness. Finishes off with a hoppy bitterness.

M - Medium thickness, and some alcohol and carbonation burn.

O - Sweet smell and the slight sweet taste does not disappoint. Pretty enjoyable.
