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.

4.43/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Fruity hops hit the nose right off - could smell it as soon as the barkeep pulled the draft handle (it was only a few feet away). The head is solid white with a silky sheen and slowly recedes in the pint glass with a few lingering legs. A very light haze permeates the golden honey-colored brew.

Grapefruit dominates the flavor profile, with some spruce notes and a hint of sweetness cut by the alcohol content. On tap, it has plenty of carbonation to excite the taste buds and smooth out the bitterness from the hops, which leaves a post-it note on the back of the palate as a reminder.

A regular beer of choice for me whenever available, on tap or bottled.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This pours a hazy orange-amber with a modest head. Aroma has pine-resin with a hint of citrus hop notes. Flavor offers high bitterness up front with piney, flowery hop flavor, together with some sticky sweet malt, lightly caramel, and a pleasant yeasty fruitiness. Finish is actually a little sweet while still retaining hop taste. Fairly light bodied for the strength, but also a tad watery.

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.
