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.

Lacing good – Narrow rings of small bubbles

Flavor begins slightly bitter then fades to nothing; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl

Bought a six pack in Niagara Falls, USA for $10.95.
A - Nice dark amber thick white head. Good retention.
S - Slight citrus and pine. A little malt. Much less aroma than I expected.
T - Mild hops flavours and some mild malt sweetness. This beer is incredibly well-balanced and the alcohol is almost unnoticeable.
M - Very smooth and light.
O - Fantastic beer. Great stuff.
