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.

12oz bottle given to me by rudge75. Thanks Dave! Poured into a pint glass.

Pours a murky straw colour, lighter than some IPA's, less coppery but tons of unfiltered goodness. 1 inch of head from a vigorous pour, medium-high carbonation. The head recedes to about 1/8th of an inch and sticks around, leaves a bit of sticky lace. Aroma is outstanding, Tropical fruit, pineapple, mandarin orange, grapefruit, pine, and a lovely floral sweetness as well. Malt shines through with a little caramel in the back and some fresh baking as well. Delicious!

Taste does not dissapoint in the least. Herbal hops dominate, aniseed, pine, citrus in smaller doses. The lovely part about all this is that this beer is extremely well-balanced. Lots of bready/biscuity malt that is almost cookie like at times, other typical baking flavours come through, a little vanilla, caramel, and even a bit of banana surprisingly. Grainy in the finish with lots of hop bitterness. Well-balanced which I appreciate so much in an IPA. Not as dry as a lot of IPA's I've had but I don't mind that, although the carbonation could be toned down a little. This is probably the most drinkable IPA I've had the pleasure of trying, the balance and the flavour is just outstanding, and I could session this all night long to be sure. GET ME MORE!
