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.

Been waiting to try for a while and overall not disappointed but doesn't compare on same level as some of my other favorites.
Golden honey pour with nice white sticky head. Smell lacks with alcohol notes and dome sticky hop resin. Taste and feel great. Sweet honey, molasses but smooth and not overly sticky. Easily will drink again

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a lightly hazy dark golden color with a 2-finger slightly off-white head that has decent retention and leaves a good bit of lacing.

Nice floral aroma of grapefruit, pineapple and some lighter notes of pine in the back.

Lots of hops evident in the taste but not completely overdone. Grapefruit, pineapple and some lemon all come out along with a piney finish. There is a little malt evident as well making this IPA a little more balanced. Overall very much on the hoppy side but not so much that it is a complete hop bomb.

Medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation. This is a classic IPA that I don't think I'll ever get tired of. Looking forward to enjoying many more of these over the years.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Golden in color with a slight off white head leaving decent lacing. Fairly carbonated.

A nice floral aroma, big on over ripe citrus. Very hoppy.

Nicely sweet upfront, but with a matching bitterness in the end. The taste, like the aroma, is hop forward. Lightly tart citrus.

Moderate in body with a bit of prickle on the tongue. Almost creamy with long lasting flavor that adheres to the tongue as the beer dries in the finish.

An excellent and unusual hop offering. Quite pleasing on this summer evening.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- a light golden color, with about a one inch white foamy head.

S- pine and citrus, along with some hops

T- Wow this is good, has a nice bitter bite up front with the pine and hops coming through. Then finishes smooth and crisp with a nice clean citrus end.

M- definitely leaves a nice puckering of the cheeks.

I really like this beer. I had heard good things and this one lived up to the hype. Drinkabiltiy would be higher but after a 4-5 of these you'd be gone.

A - Hazy golden orange, half inch of white foamy head, sticky lace coats the glass.

S - Hops come mainly in citrus form with some floral hints. A nice sweet malt sneaks in as well.

T - Very fruity to start out with the citrus hops carrying over to the taste. The malt comes through big in the middle, and a touch of bitterness rounds things out, but doesn't linger. Pretty well balanced overall, but not as hoppy as I would have expected/wanted. I prefer to leave the malts hiding in my IPAs. No alcohol is really apparent in the taste, but does warm a little in the stomach.

M - Pretty low bodied for an IPA. Not overly bitter, just right. Carbonation seems minimal.

O - Not quite what I want in an IPA, not nearly enough hop flavor. Will try this again in a couple years to once again see if I can like this beer as much as others do. I just don't see why all the fuss.

On tap at Kickbacks

A-Pours a clear golden/orange with a creamy one finger white head that has good retention and left ample amounts of lace.

S-Citrus hoppy goodness along with some floral and pine/resin notes with traces of toasty malt subtly making its presence known.

T-Citrus hops bite first with a slightly resinous feel coming in as well. Tasty, toasty malt is there but letting the hops shine. Slightly bitter bite. Not a hop "bomb" at all but it lets you know you're drinking and IPA.

M-Medium body and carbonation, slightly slick and oily but finishes clean.

O-This is one darn good IPA that I have enjoyed many times before but this was the first time I have had the pleasure of experiencing it on tap-and it didn't disappoint.

Poured into a pint glass

Pours a very hazy orange color. Very, extremely thick, frothy head that remained throughout. Lacing was very prominent. Aroma was mostly from the hops with many citrus/floral characteristics. Medium bodied with the taste that you would expect from this style. Hoppy and crisp with a bitter finish. This beer is very drinkable with the ABV hardly noticed. Overall a great product from a great brewery.

Golden cloudy pour with a generous inch and a half white head. Impressive lacing throughout.

Sweet biscuity aroma with bright tropical floral notes-I wouldn't say incredible. Soft pine and smells good enough to drink.

A very juicy grapefruit with subtle bitterness. Lighter sweetness.

Light bodied quenchable craft. Well balanced malt and hop.

Been drinking this on and off for years and always grand to go back to an old and steady friend. Crowd pleaser and quite sessionable. Solid fare that still deserves qualitative recognition.

Best IPA I've had, if it's really an IPA (people here make me doubt). I think it might be the first or close to perfect 'taste' I'd rated. I was floored, it might make me a long-term fan of IPA.

Bronzish-copper and cloudy look with a solid head that holds. Spicy and citrusy, hoppy as sin, strong. Lovely. Bloody sin lovely. Must try IMO.
