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.

As perfect as an IPA as I could ask for; a very favorite. Strikes the perfect balance between hops and malt, retaining characters of both in flavor (far too many IPAs are stupidly hoppy, heavy-handed). Smooth and endlessly drinkable, my ideal session brew. Perfect head, beautiful color. The benchmark against which I judge other IPAs, and indeed, other beers in general.

I'll say it this way: it's the only beer that I'm offering at my wedding next spring :)

Finally got my hands on this while in PA for my cousin's wedding.

Poured from the bottle into my duval tulip. Has a nice dark amber body with a slight off white 2 finger head which left nice lacing down the side of the glass.

Aroma - Lots of pine and citrus flavors coming through on the nose, some of the malt makes its presence shown.

Taste - Hops from the word go, this is a very complex brew. Lots of piney and citrus up front, and the hop bitterness combating the smooth sweet malt. Makes for a great combination of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium, alcohol notes are hidden well, but adds to the wonderful flavor of it. carbonation is great.

Overall - A very solid IPA at a nice ABV. What a great beer to have year around. I can't wait to pick up more of it.

Poured on-tap into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a clear amber hue with 1/4 inch off white head with good retention. (4)
S: Sweet citrus (orange and grapefruit), soft apple, and biscuit/toast malt. (4.25)
T: Follows aroma nearly exactly with a bit more hop bite. Excellent hop-malt balance. (4.5)
M: Light body. Sweet and slightly oily feel. Mild hop bite especially in the finish. (4.5)
D: A superb example of style. The tremendous balance allows this to be extremely approachable. Decent complexity, but eminently drinkable. (4.5)

Very clean, appropriately hoppy IPA. Floral and citrusy notes create a solid anytime beer. Great with fall weather and good music.
