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.

appearance is nothing special. looks more like a pils, lager, or a golden ale than an ipa. light gold/yellow all the way through with a puffy white head that has good retention and laces the glass nicely. smells of citrusy hops, lots of hops. fruity sweet.

a great mixture of sweet fruitiness and bitter hops. both the sweet and the bitter complement the other throughout. strawberry and apricot up front, with a nice orange flavor through the middle that gives way to a hoppy, grapefruit bitterness. this is the way ipas are supposed to taste. absolutely delicious.

mouthfeel is good. medium-bodied, and carbonated well. drinkability is through the roof, of course, especially at this time in the summer.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

ah, what a gem. it pours a beautiful golden, orange with a fluffy white head of creamy bubbles. the nose is so full of slightly over-ripe grapefruit and mango - citrus zest and a lots of over-ripe apricot. i could smell this all day. the taste follows the nose but it is bright and bursting with flavor (this bottle is about a month old - the freshest i've had it) - a nice sweet malt backbone that gives a candied grapefruit like taste. also some pineapple. a bit of piney-ness as well and a little bit of grassy/earthiness to it. it goes down super easy. all in all this is a gem. i love this beer and wish i lived near where it was distributed. it was one of the first ipa's i had and remains one of my favorites. really wonderful stuff.
