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.

I flippin love this beer. Aroma is soft citrus/floral notes, but also somehow briny and evocative to me of the seashore or (as more appropriate for Michigan) a day out on the lakes. The mouthfeel is rather full-bodied for an IPA. Carbonation is not noticeable. Very little bitterness/dryness--just a faint note from the hops. What is amazing here is the beautiful balance between the malts and hops, and the easy drinkability that somehow highly rewards every sip. And again, I find this beer highly evocative--really reminds me of laid-back days in the great, wild outdoors. One of my favorite IPAs.

The label had a fish on the front, didn't look as pictured. I'm not one to be able to guess fish by looks, but I would guess it's a trout?

This poured a hazy amber into a nonick pint glass. The inch head was a creamy white (almost caramel colored) and it lasted a few minutes it is leaving heavy lacing.

The smell was of oats and yeast with a hint of apple.

The taste was a lively blend of hops and malt. a real heart warmer. Compared to the other IPAs I have had, the hops are more subdued. It was very enjoyable - I feel like I drank a good bitter. I would drink this again - in a heartbeat. - no pun intended

One of the best IPA's I have ever had.
It has a semi transparent orange color with a nice creamy tan head, that goes away quickly. The smell and taste however, are wonderful. I just kept smelling it over and over until one of fiends told me to finally taste it. The smell was compromised mostly of sweet spices, orange peel, coriander, and hints of hops. The taste was spicy, a good blend of hops and fruity tones. A perfect amount of carbonation and alcohol (which isn’t very noticeable) make this brew easily drinkable.
Wish I had more and will definitely purchase more in the future. Highly recommend this one to the IPA fans!
