Bottle dated 10/11/12
Appearance - Pours a hazy sunset orange with a finger of white head. Sub-par retention leads to a broken layer of suds across the surface. Spotty lacing with fair stick.
Smell - Citrus and tropical notes, mellowed pineapple, backed by an underlying toffee and bread sweetness, with just a hint of butter.
Taste - Upfront, the hops are sweet orange with a good chunk of bitter pith. Lying beneath, a solid bready malt backbone. Once warmed, it traces of buttery toffee can be found mid-taste and toward the finish. Great balance. Aftertaste is pure fresh orange pith bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body, with a fair amount of carbonation. Smooth, easy drinking; almost buttery on the swallow.
Overall - Certainly not the hoppiest IPA you'll come across, but it may be one of the more unique offerings out there. Beautiful flavor profile. Excellent balance. Wish I had more than just this one.

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.
