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.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. pours a lightly hazy orangish amber with two fingers of off white head and great head retension. moderate lacings.

aroma is mainly of aromatic hops and a touch of citrus and a grassy character. distant malts ground the aroma, giving it a solid profile.

taste is lightly malty and grassy up front, with a lightly floral character. finishes on an herbal hop note with an aftertaste is bitter hops. the hops are notable in their concentration and power towards the back of the palate, without going too far.

mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sharp texture from the hops. finishes dry with a bitter aftertaste.

drinkability is good. this is a solid IPA. the hops are wonderfully aromatic and provide a nice profile. cheers!

Served from a 12oz bottle, bottled on date: 10/06/11 (4 months old). Poured aggressively into a pint glass.

A: Looks a light golden, almost blonde ale color, very cloudy. Lots of active carbonation bubbles coming up. Finger of white head, good retention.

S: Very floral, hoppy, pine, citrus, very aromatic.

T: Whew! Definitely an IPA. This IPA style is not my cup of tea really... or glass of beer rather, but hopheads should love it. Lots and lots of pine, citrus, higher IBUs, very hop forward in the start through the mid palate. Tries to balance a tad on the finish with a bit of malts, finishes a bit sweet. Doesn't leave that bitter burning pinesol feeling in the back of my sinuses after a sip like some IPAs of this style do, so that's a plus. Also the slightly higher ABV is well masked, I don't get much booze in the flavor.

M: Medium body, slightly on the watery side, light carbonation.

D: Drinkability is hard to measure with this one because it's such a niche style. Your mileage may vary. For me, it's drinkable, but I'm not a huge fan of big IBUs and piney flavors.

O: Overall, I'm not a big fan. It's one of those styles where you either love it or hate it, and I'm rating it here for what it is, not according to my personal tastes. I know it's a good beer for those who are into the IPA style, and it deserves at least a 4/5. Love it or hate it, it is what it is, and there isn't anything "bad" about this beer, it just depends on the palate.

Draught @ Mellow Mushroom Raleigh: The beer pours a fairly clear, orangish color. There was a bit of a white head on it. It has a very nice aroma. The main nose is that of citrus with some floral hops. Strong, but not overpowering. A hint of sweetness in the aroma also. Upfront taste of hops. Strong, but not overdone. Aftertaste has a bit of orange to it, a hint of both sweetness and tartness. Quite good!
