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.

The beer comes in a slightly clear golden honey orange.

The aroma has fresh hoppiness, lemon zest and citrus essence, big forest green, big floral, a slightly sweet breadiness.

The flavor follows of bright forest green trees, almost like air freshener. Then of sweet honey and floral notes of rose and lavender, a touch of a orange peel and grapefruit, a medium breadiness, and then onto a medium plus drying and slight pine bitterness finish.

The hops are not abrasive and the malt body is medium. A wonderfully clean and balanced beer. An “everyday” IPA.

(Had this next to Perpetual IPA, enjoyed that beer more for its complexity and fruity notes.)

Poured a Golden haze with a thin white head about a finger thick, but didn't last long.
Lemon citrus aroma, well balanced but strong hop smell.
Taste matches the aroma, all the way through consistent citrus.
No aftertaste. Great mouth feel.
Very good IPA, definitely one I can enjoy a few of.

Poured into a tulip glass

A: an opaque golden with a half finger white head that dwindles to a bubble ring. Foamy lacing.

S: piney hops, mangos, oranges. Nice.

T: Smooth, sweet with light hops followed by a perfect citrus and malt balance. Very tasty indeed. Could drink this all afternoon.

M: light with medium carbonation. Very frothy.

O: worth the hype. One of the best IPA's out there. Excellent balance of hops and citrus. Very sessionable. Drink in quantity.
