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.

I was in northern VA for the Inauguration--Great Falls, to be exact--on a sleepy Sunday morning and went into a quaint international cafe and market. They had a small but quality selection of six packs, with the most pleasant surprise being a lone sixer of this beer, which I've only had before at Monk's Cafe. I was psyched.

Batch 8526, which I now realize means it's not at the peak of freshness. Hopefully I'll find an opportunity to review from a fresher batch, but here it goes...

A: Pours a cloudy marigold with considerable carbonation. Settles quickly and produces a thin peal white head that dissolves quickly. Not much lacing, which again may be the product of age...

S: Big citrus and some floral scents, along with malt sweetness on the back of the nose. Not the big or sharp hop bitterness I sort of expected.

T: Bland for the first few sips, but after warming up a little there's more distinctive taste--biting, dry hop notes, with hints of grapefruit and pine. The beer makes a move toward balance with some mellowing malt character. Crisp overall.

M: Carbonation kind of dominates, and the tingle lingering, clinging to the bottom sides of the tongue.

D: I really think if I had consistent access to this beer it would always already be in my fridge.

-from notes
Poured from the 16oz. can into a glass.

Pours a nice, hazy straw color with a long-lasting one-finger head that leaves some lacy foam trailing down the glass as the beer disappears.

The aroma is mostly sweet citrus.

My tongue is hit with big citrus flavors up front - grapefruit, a little orange as well and then comes a wave of piney resins and a zingy, bubbly finish.

The mouthfeel is medium, and slightly sticky and well carbed.

Overall, just an outstanding IPA not normally available to me (darn).

I love to try different beers, and this one looked different, the strange fish on the logo had caught my attention more than once. I finally decided to give it a shot and i was not disappointed, this cloudy american ale really lived up to its name. Two hearts, because at first you hit with a strong hoppy flavor, and just when you think you know the exact aftertaste you're going to be hit with, it throws you a great aftertaste that you did not expect. I think this beer is outstanding and can not wait to have my friends try it.
