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.

A: looked like a typical IPA with no outstanding features IMO.

S: a nice sweet smell with some floral notes.

T: very drinkable IPA with a floral notes similar to wheat beers, but with great hops.

M: not much to say here

O: glad I finally tried this. Readily available even down in FL and decent for the price. Personally I'm not that in to floral and wheaty-type IPA's, but this was a good one.

Thanks to my buddy Aw Yeh for saving me a few dollars and bringing one of these over to my place. I've been meaning to review this excellent beer from a bottle for awhile. Bottled 06/02/12

Appearance - An absolutely vibrant and delicious looking brew. A thick, foaming, frothy head that is clings to the glass quite loosely. The beer has an orange and pink grapefruit appearance to it. Highly carbonated and very apparent that it is freshly made.

Smell - Very heavy notes of pink grapefruit and orange citrus. Tangerine splashes at the nostrils while a light hoppy pine waves in the background. A light hint of malt.

Taste - An extraordinary brew. This could possibly the freshest brew I've ever had. A very faint ethanol burn sits in the throat while orange coats the tongue. A fresh hop profile tickles the cheeks. The swallowing of the beer is accompanies by the taste of pink grapefruit and piney hops.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability - This beer is absolutely delicious on the tongue and cheeks. Light-bodied to medium-bodied in taste. Fresh, piney, sweet, full of lively hops, and brimming with sweet nectary fruit flavors.

I'm not usually as knocked out as a lot of others are by hopped up, over-the-top micros, but this is one unique, terrific beer! Kind of like a fruit smoothie or creamsicle with lots of hops thrown in. The citrus smell leaps out when you open the bottle (and I can really appreciate it. I have grapefruit, orange, mango, and lemon trees in my back yard!). The hops certainly are present, but unlike a beer like Rogue IPA, the hops don't push the flavor to the background. Pours a nice, foamy head - with good retention. Cloudy, orange hue. Both refreshing and substantial. It was great to have a highly rated micro brew that lives up to it's reputation. (thanks, Al - I'll need more!!) - (note: the above review was for the 2002 version. The 2003 version isn't quite as good IMO, not as smooth. Maybe it will improve with age, but I couldn't wait to find out!).

Clear orange-yellow with a thin white head. Aroma was abounding with hops (citrus and floral). When I first tasted the beer, all I tasted was grapefruit... I could almost detect some malt trying to sneak through and balace things out, but it couldn't quite surface. As the beer warmed a bit, the malt became more pronounced, and balanced things out quite nicely, making this a very drinkable brew. It has a medium body, and medium carbonation, with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Another fine beer from Kalamazoo!

Purchased a bottle at Chip's Wine and Beer Market in Nags Head, NC.

A: Copper hue with an orangish tint. Has a magnificent thick 2 inch head (off white) that is rocky with good retention. Hazy and effervescent.

S: Very strong floral hop aroma. Caramel like malt aroma that is sweet is noticeable in the background. There is some grapefruit character here but it takes a back seat to the floral elements in the nose.

T: Floral and grapefruit hop character. Medium high bitterness is fantastically smooth. Malt flavor is clearly present with a caramel character.

MF: Moderate light body with a dry mouthfeel. No astringency. Moderate carbonation.

D, notes: This IPA is well balanced, wonderfully hoppy and bitter without the over the top bullshit that accompanies so many West Coast IPAs.

A: came to me in a bells glass with a beautiful copper orange color and thin foamy head that left quickly leaving some nice lacing on the glass

S: smell of grapefruit and citrus with some grassiness and touch of malt

T: i agree that this has a very clean and tart taste. the citrus hits you first coming next with the hop bitterness and pine that tingles the tongue and then the bread and malt like tones finish off the taste.

M: lighter than many IPA's at this alcohol level. crisp and clean with a good amount of carbonation

D: very good IPA but not on the top of my list. I could definitely drink this one again to re-rate since I didn't feel it lived up to its hype.
