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.

From a 16 oz can into a wine glass. Indecipherable date code on bottom of can.

A-The beer is orange-tinted honey in color. My average pour produces about one and one-half fingers of off-white head. The retention is good and the beer leaves sticky curtains of lacing on the glass. Nice looking stuff.

S-The aroma is mildly citrusy with orange, some grapefruit, orange zest, and a bit of woody, oaky hop smell. The hops are balanced by a slightly sweet, bready malt that reminds me of wonderbread.

T-The taste, like the smell, is mostly hoppy with a woodsy, orange zest hop flavor competing with a semisweet malt base. I get toast and honey to go with the hops. No one flavor dominates here.

M-The feel is medium in heft with a slightly gritty, hoppy coating feeling. Carbonation is less than average in volume and strength.

O-I have tried this beer on three occasions now and finally got around to doing a proper review. It still has yet to blow me away, but I can see why people like it. It drinks easy, but provides enough flavor to keep things interesting. Although not a session beer (at 7% ABV), I could drink a few of these without feeling overwhelmed.

A: Copper with slight cloudiness, moderate carbonation, finger slight yellow head is really just to become foam.

S: Spicy hops, pine, champa flour, candy, orange marmelade.

T: Spicy as in hot peppers and pine, really hopped up so continues the burn like an atomic warhead all the way through, sweet candy notes like faint orange marmelade, yeasty aftertaste.

M: Moderately syrupy body for an ipa, medium to high carbonation.

O: Was expecting a lot, and like this beer. Certainly stronger on the hops than I’d expected from the review I saw. I see the balance here, and representation of east coast style of ipa it is. To me it’s a little over hopped, but balanced and unique for that. I am burping pine and actually enjoying the overhoppiness- its growing on me! Would go well with spicy food and gorgonzola cheese.

So, I have had this before but after a few glasses of wine before dinner, so I want a clean palate to test it. I was a little drunk when having it, so not sure, so here comes a sober review with a clean palate.

WOW, I love this one. Very sweet aroma, sweet malts, alcohol very well hidden.

Sweet orange, sweet peach, taste. Excellent, excellent beer. Flavors are very different then a traditional IPA. Unique. You can tell it is not a West Coast IPA, and as much as I love those, this is awesome and different in it's own way.

World class IPA.
