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.

Poured out a orange color, with a shade of some peach in there as well. A nice head that settled down with time.

Smell consisted a lot of herbal hops with an underlying of sweet malts to give a good balance. Some fruit can also be detected. Grapefruit and peaches are the big fruit aromas in this one.

Taste was good as well. A good amount of hops in this one, with a nice underlying malt to really balance this IPA out. You can tell that there's some piney hops, juicy and citrusy hops. But one doesn't override the other, which is very nice to see.

Mouthfeel had a creamy body to it. Mediumish body. Finished on the bitter side, but in a good way.

Truly a great IPA. I'm not a hop-head, but it's these types of IPA's that make me crave for some IPA's.

Many, many thanks to Feloniousmonk for this bottle!

Sampled on cask at Boston's bistro, 9/13/07.

Appearance- Mellow hazy gold orange with a thick creamy head that doesn't die down even when I offer it money.

Smell- Malt upfront with much floral hop background. Not a lot outside of that, some river soft water scents.

Taste- Creamy and hoppy, I could drink this for quite a bit and will. Hops open up the flavor and the malt comes in and balances it well. This beer, as most real ales have a lot of complexity within.

Mouthfeel- Much like I just ate ice cream. The cream lingers and the abv doesn't hurt things either.

Drinkability- This is so much more drinkable. I could drink this all night if there weren't so many other unsampled taps in this location. I'm very glad that I have sampled it.

Had this on tap in Virginia, chose the 20 oz. Pour.

Appearance: Amber in color, “golden orange” would best sum it up. Came with a 1” head and left decent lacing.

Smell: A nice fresh IPA with a smell as expected, Citrus & Pine.

Taste: Hoppy grapefruit with resinous pine, malt backbone barely noticeable.

Mouthfeel: The hoppy character and a solid level of carbonation make this beer crisp and clean on the palate.

Overall: Solid example of an IPA, again fresh on tap was a nice way to experience this beer. IPA’s and DIPA’s seem to be very “basic” animals, slight variations on a citrus/pine, hoppy formula.

A - A golden orange with a slight inch of foam at top also leaves laces around the glass.

S - Citrusy hops with slight hint of malts.

T - A true beer, the hops and malts both combine to give a very fruity taste. Really Enjoyable.

M - I enjoy this beer very much because of the low body and very little bitterness for an IPA.

D -Definitely a beer that can be drunk on the regular. I will always want this IPA before others if it is available.

Picked this up in KC, MO. Not available here in Wichita.

Appearance: This beer poured a clear, golden amber color. Very tiny particles could be seen floating throughout the brew. After the whole bottle had been added to the glass, the sheer number of particles made the beer appear hazy, even though a chill haze was not present. The stark white head rose up easily to about two fingers and settled slowly, becoming fluffy as it did so. A thin skin of bubbles remained until the beer was gone. Tons of lace was left behind on the side of the glass

Smell: A great balance of juicy, citric hops and strong roasted malt. Just like a fresh hop cone balanced on a cracker and wrapped in a piece of bread. Lemon, vanilla, and hints of spice floated underneath. Very nice, overall.

Mouthfeel: Light- to medium-bodied. Its downfall was that it seemed a little watery at times. However, the smoothness and chewy maltiness gave it a nice presence anyway.

Taste: A mixture of sweet and astringent malt upfront. The hops kicked in with a vengence in the middle. They provided big citrus and floral flavors, as well as a nice dose of bitterness. The hops continued well into the aftertaste. Roasted malt arose on the finish to linger with the hops. Hints of spicy alcohol poked through in the aftertaste as well. A light acidity lingered underneath everything and gained strength in the finish.

Not a lot of complexity, but nevertheless very enjoyable. A good, solid IPA.

Cloudy light caramel orange color with nice one finger sticky foam.

Spicy floral hops dominate, bit of pine resin and touch of alcohol.

Light, but not too light, sweet malt (biscuity, hint of caramel) underscored by floral bittering throughout. Bit of woodsy spice builds at the finish to give it a little bite.

Pretty soft feeling, despite a bit of tingling from the moderate carbonation. Medium bodied. PrettyDamnDrinkable.

Foggy gold with a large white head that falls to a sturdy table. Nose is all pine sap and lemon rind. Taste is all perfumey hops with some raw bitter oils and a lemony after taste. There is no balance here, this is a hop heads brew all the way. Mouthfeel is medium to full, outstanding finish. Decent drinakbility for such a hoppy beer. A fine IPA.
