Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 12-11-2001

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 from a bottle, drank from a tulip.

A: Pours a rich golden color with a white foamy head.

S: Floral with a hint of apple. No change in smell over time.

T: Floral again but not overly hoppy, and again some apple notes are noticed.

M: Medium body, and heavier than I would imagine from the sight and smell. No real alcohol flavor from the 7.0% ABV either.

D: No surprises here in flavor. It tastes just like it smells with no complex layers that I can discern. I don’t say that in a bad way, though. The beer wasn’t heavy but heavier than I imagined and it rounds off the fruity taste nicely.

Looks like an IPA should. Deep amber. Lightly filtered. Off-white head, blend of fine & big bubbles.

Not a big bouquet, which suits me fine. Nothing off about it. Hints of apricot.

Really nice flavor. Big hit of bitter apricots. Finish is nice, but not especially long. I drink double IPAs 4:1 over single, so I had to moderate my expectations there.

Lovely mouthfeel. Moderately rich.

This beer comes together will great integrity, more than the sum of its parts. I'd always be happy drinking one of these.

First American IPA I've ever had that I actually enjoyed. It is very drinkable to the point of almost being scary at 7% abv. I never cared for the super bitter beers which is typical in an IPA. I just wish there were more IPA's like this.

A much better brew on tap. Enjoyed two effortless pints with a friend. They went quick.

Cloudy orange color with sticky lace.. A/T pale malt, candy gummy fruit, popcorn, orange, flowery, little pine or even much bitterness.. Medium body.. Really great beer so fruity and floral it almost could pass as a fruit beer.
