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.

4.64/5  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.

3.6/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Bright, hazy orange.
S - Faint grapefruit and citrus aroma.
M - Medium body, medium-dense carbonation, crisp, and clean.
T - Good balance. A little piney sweetness. A little bitter at the end.
O - Easy to drink. Nothing stands out.

Decent IPA. Worth another shot in the future.

Smell: Citrus, earthy, pine, slight hops, even light hints of fruit

Taste: Dry, slight hop's, bitter, lost some of the citrus/fruit smells

Mouthfeel: Dry, crisp, light to medium body carbonation, very easy going for 7% ABV

Overall: a great option for a America IPA, bitter but not overwhelming, with complex undertones

4.18/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Date - 2-11-14

A - Pours out a nice two finger white frothy head followed by a light hazy golden orange beer.

S - A pleasant malt sweetness and a clean hop profile of citrus, and floral aroma are produced.

T - A sweet clean biscuity malt flavor along with pop of citrus floral hops. No detection of alcohol.

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated goes down really easy.

O - This beer is very satisfying and really clean and easy to drink. If you like big IPA's, this would be a good one to try on days you just feel like kicking back and having a easy drinking brew. A really easy drinker, cheers!
