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.

Sample: 1 bottle 2012

A: Golden yellow, beautiful internal carbonation, pours a nice and sustaining small, white foamy head, a bit hazy

S: Not incredibly fragrant, citrus fruits, hops of course, some tropical elements, traces of coriander, even a little buttery

T: Much similar to the nose, strong citrus, some lemon/orange characteristics, definitely buttery to finish, nice sweet and bitter balance

M: Very smooth, light in the mouth, not overly bitter, well carbonated, quite drinkable, light citrus aftertaste, a little drying, though

O: A all-around delicious ipa, buttery finish, smooth, fragrance is a little lacking, however

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Hazy amber in color with a large eggshell white head. Great head retention. Rings of foamy lacing cling to the glass.

S: Floral and citric hop scents. Oranges, passion fruit, fir pine, sugary grapefruit, pith. Sweet and doughy malt base.

T: Mandarin orange and sugary grapefruit on the attack. Lemon peel and pith. Bitterness quickly reaches its apex, and is fairly tame overall. Sweet malt base adds tastes of biscuit, dough, and faint caramel. Dank and oily hop tastes surface toward the end. Finishes with tropical fruits and mild oily, plant-like tastes.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Creamy and a touch silky with moderate carbonation adding a crisp, refreshing dimension.

O: This is a very tasty, easy-drinking beer. Pretty well balanced, though hop heads won't complain either. Were it available in my market, I could see myself buying this one often.

From a bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance - Nice light bronze with a slight haze, good inch and a half of head formed when poured, nice lacing as it's disappearing from my glass.

Smell - hints of malts up front with a bit of pine and citrus as well

Taste - Light malts coming through upfront and then the bitterness of the hops comes through with the classic IPA flavor.

Mouthfeel - fairly light mouth feel as it's being sipped but still leaves a nice coating on the tongue and mouth.

Overall - a pretty good IPA, a bit more malty than most but still a solid choice if you find it.
