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.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Batch # on this beer was 9803, which translates to a bottling date of June 14, 2010.

Appearance: This beer looks incredibly promising when it is poured. It is a hazy golden orange color with a little more than 3 fingers of white head. Lacing looks great when it reduces; clumpy, fluffy, open and abundant that clings all over the glass.

Smell: Grapefruit, citrus, pine, and floral hops are all interwoven together nicely in this beer.

Taste: I get pale biscuity malts and some citrus up front, with both pine and floral hops on the back end for nice bitterness. However, overlaying all of this and in some cases completely overpowering it is grapefruit. Honestly it almost tastes like grapefruit juice was poured into this beer as it was being bottled. I was initially intrigued by it because it ends up making this an incredibly bitter IPA. However, I ended up deciding that I wasn't a big fan.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Smooth and creamy with great fine carbonation. A really nice overall mouthfeel. Due to the excessive grapefruit taste I couldn't rate the drinkability higher that a 4, however. I can appreciate the bitterness of the beer, but I don't feel like it's bitterness from the hops as is the case with most IPAs. I'm of two minds (or hearts) on this one.
