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.

Finally getting around to review this hyped up IPA. It pours a shiny new penny copper with a solid foamy head. Clarity is excellent, lacing and head retention are equally as pleasing to the eye.

Sweet and tangy passion fruit and pineapple notes fumed from the beer as I popped the top. After the pour it seemed more balanced but never too heavy on the malt. A floral bouquet and the previously mentioned pineapple flavors comprise of the hop bill.

The taste is exceptionally smooth beginning to end. Nothing assaults the taste buds, but everything is in harmony. The flavors almost seem to jump out more in the finish; grassy floral tones, mango, and a dash of pithy grapefruit emerge after the beer has evacuated. The malt backbone has a substantial toasty presence with a surprising amount of yeast detectable, but it sits so politely in the background as not to disrupt the hop display.

Carbonation adds only a smidgen of crispness to the extremely slick feel. It's very smooth but maybe lacking just a bit of body IMO. Despite a minor dent in the mouthfeel dept, I must remember that this beer has been in my glass for 5 minutes and I only have one drink left. Needless to say it's a solid example, and it doesn't need another review to solidify it's reputation.
