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.

4.64/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a yellowish-orange with minimal head.

Smell is citrus, but is very mild. Definitely not an overwhelming blast of hops.

Tastes just like it smells, mostly citrus but the flavors are much more subtle than in many IPAs. Not even a hint of the 7% alcohol, and very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is remarkably smooth for an IPA, not nearly as bitter as you might expect - a small amount of carbonation accents the medium body nicely, and without any lingering astringency.

Overall, this is one of the standout IPAs from west Michigan. To me, it seems a bit more similar to east coast IPAs like Dogfish Head's 60 and 90 minute varieties, and is a nice change from the over-the-top hop-bombs that are so common with this style. Smooth mouthfeel and subtle flavors make this an excellent IPA.

This is a fantastic beer that I drink pretty regularly. One of my favorite go to IPAs. Pours a nice color and a decent head. The smell is very good, zesty citrus which is one of my favorites. Taste is very much full of those same notes as well. Always a good beer to drink

I flippin love this beer. Aroma is soft citrus/floral notes, but also somehow briny and evocative to me of the seashore or (as more appropriate for Michigan) a day out on the lakes. The mouthfeel is rather full-bodied for an IPA. Carbonation is not noticeable. Very little bitterness/dryness--just a faint note from the hops. What is amazing here is the beautiful balance between the malts and hops, and the easy drinkability that somehow highly rewards every sip. And again, I find this beer highly evocative--really reminds me of laid-back days in the great, wild outdoors. One of my favorite IPAs.
