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.

4.33/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Fairly pale golden color for an IPA. Reasonably clear, but not brilliant. Pours a thick head with good retention. Some residual lacing.

A slightly piney hop aroma, noticeable but not overpowering.

Initial flavor has a wonderful balance. Enough bittering to prevent even a hint of sweetness, but without so much bitterness that it is an IBU machine. Malt has a secondary voice, but it is there. A very gentle transition, with no distinct hop bite in the finish - just a lingering, pleasant bitterness. The hop flavor/bitterness balance really seems to be perfect for what I feel an American IPA should be.

Medium body and carbonation. No astringency. A hint of alcohol warming, which isn't totally out of place here, but slightly surprising for a 7% ABV beer.

A very drinkable IPA. Not harshly bitter while being a decidedly hoppy beer.

4.43/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Thick white two finger head. No lacing really. Crystal clear amber color. Light carbonation bubble. All sediment was at bottom of bottle so second pour was cloudy.

S - Sweet tropical fruits. Passion fruit, orange, grapefruit.

T - A malty front followed by a citrus orange peel taste with some sweetness. Finishes off with a hoppy bitterness.

M - Medium thickness, and some alcohol and carbonation burn.

O - Sweet smell and the slight sweet taste does not disappoint. Pretty enjoyable.
