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.

4.6/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12 floz bottle with 9279 on the back into old speckeld pint glass

A - good light amber colour, maybe like light tangerine or clementine. big three finger head, solid, made of medium large bubbles, with a slightly orange colour. the head retains pretty well.

S - exceptionally good nose, great citrusy hops. the nose is so incredibly bursting with the scent of the hops. the nose exudes lemon juice, pine needles, and grapefruit pith. there is not much more, but the sheer intensity and deliciousness of the nose earns it a high marking

T - a real great beer, this one earns the kudos it gets. the initial is a tamed bitterness with a big malt backing, keeping the full bitterness at bay. the hops are more piney than grapefruity, but the overall taste is of the classic hop taste, with maybe a bit of astringent bitterness at the back of the palate. the finish is really where this beer takes off: the grapefruit taste rockets up and combines with the alcohol to make a lightly burning, bitter, and dry taste that finishes a bit on the herbal side of things; the malt, however, manages to get one last kick in and takes the very end of the finish. the aftertaste is light bitterness of hops and an overall malty feeling.

MF&D - the beer perfectly drinkable, compeltely and utterly. in fact the beer is soo good that even claire, who doesnt like hops, really likes this brew. I dont know what a perfect Am. IPA should taste like, so I will curb the rating a bit.

Taste - Similar to the smell tropical fruits with orange, nice bitter finish

Overall - A well made IPA, glad I picked up a six pack

Finally getting around to reviewing. The beer pours a mildly hazy copper amber with a thick head that settles to a thick collared ring. Nice lacing too.

Good scent of orange and grapefruit. Well done. A hint of caramel as well, but mostly all about the hops. Taste is similar with plenty of grapefruit. The caramel sweetness finishes with a crisp firm bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a great level of carbonation that comes off very well. Mostly dry finish, but the caramel sweetness lingers.

Great all around IPA that may not have the bells and whistles of today's over amped IBUs or latest hop cultivar, but comes together very well.
