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.

As perfect as an IPA as I could ask for; a very favorite. Strikes the perfect balance between hops and malt, retaining characters of both in flavor (far too many IPAs are stupidly hoppy, heavy-handed). Smooth and endlessly drinkable, my ideal session brew. Perfect head, beautiful color. The benchmark against which I judge other IPAs, and indeed, other beers in general.

I'll say it this way: it's the only beer that I'm offering at my wedding next spring :)

Finally got my hands on this while in PA for my cousin's wedding.

Poured from the bottle into my duval tulip. Has a nice dark amber body with a slight off white 2 finger head which left nice lacing down the side of the glass.

Aroma - Lots of pine and citrus flavors coming through on the nose, some of the malt makes its presence shown.

Taste - Hops from the word go, this is a very complex brew. Lots of piney and citrus up front, and the hop bitterness combating the smooth sweet malt. Makes for a great combination of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium, alcohol notes are hidden well, but adds to the wonderful flavor of it. carbonation is great.

Overall - A very solid IPA at a nice ABV. What a great beer to have year around. I can't wait to pick up more of it.

Extremely solid and drinkable IPA. The aroma suggests an almost overwhelmingly hoppy profile. However, the taste is far more balanced and smooth. Mellow caramel taste is cut by broad, crisp citrus notes. The hops, present at the beginning, show up again at the end to round it out.

This is a refreshing, drinkable, balanced IPA suitable even for the IPA-averse.

Poured on-tap into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a clear amber hue with 1/4 inch off white head with good retention. (4)
S: Sweet citrus (orange and grapefruit), soft apple, and biscuit/toast malt. (4.25)
T: Follows aroma nearly exactly with a bit more hop bite. Excellent hop-malt balance. (4.5)
M: Light body. Sweet and slightly oily feel. Mild hop bite especially in the finish. (4.5)
D: A superb example of style. The tremendous balance allows this to be extremely approachable. Decent complexity, but eminently drinkable. (4.5)

Very clean, appropriately hoppy IPA. Floral and citrusy notes create a solid anytime beer. Great with fall weather and good music.
