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: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: A hard pour produced some great head on top of an apple juice colored liquid. Head just clings to the side of the glass. Carbonation is very present visually. Looks like a nice inviting IPA.

S: Piney hops, grassy, a slight almost earthy dirt note, a bit of grapefruit and other citrus, orange marmalade malt. There's a nice fruitiness from the yeast as well that ties everything together.

T: So much hop pine is the first thing I noticed. I get a slight biscuit malt flavor that balances out the hops during each sip, but this one is really just a pine bomb. Letting it linger in my mouth brings forward a strange very bitter almost spoiled Triple Sec flavor. Fortunately this isn't present during a regular sip.

M: Carbonation is on the high side, but it keeps the beer crisp and prevents the hops from being too overpowering. Medium body, feels just like an IPA should. 7% ABV is nearly no where to be found as long as you don't take big swigs. Definitely a dry one though.

O: This one is a great example of what Centennial hops have to offer and how they can make an IPA taste. Its pretty in your face, which might not work for all people, but I like it. If it was something I could buy in my area it would be battling away against Finestkind, and it might just win.

-from notes
Poured from the 16oz. can into a glass.

Pours a nice, hazy straw color with a long-lasting one-finger head that leaves some lacy foam trailing down the glass as the beer disappears.

The aroma is mostly sweet citrus.

My tongue is hit with big citrus flavors up front - grapefruit, a little orange as well and then comes a wave of piney resins and a zingy, bubbly finish.

The mouthfeel is medium, and slightly sticky and well carbed.

Overall, just an outstanding IPA not normally available to me (darn).

Serving type: can

I love to try different beers, and this one looked different, the strange fish on the logo had caught my attention more than once. I finally decided to give it a shot and i was not disappointed, this cloudy american ale really lived up to its name. Two hearts, because at first you hit with a strong hoppy flavor, and just when you think you know the exact aftertaste you're going to be hit with, it throws you a great aftertaste that you did not expect. I think this beer is outstanding and can not wait to have my friends try it.
