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.

Golden cloudy pour with a generous inch and a half white head. Impressive lacing throughout.

Sweet biscuity aroma with bright tropical floral notes-I wouldn't say incredible. Soft pine and smells good enough to drink.

A very juicy grapefruit with subtle bitterness. Lighter sweetness.

Light bodied quenchable craft. Well balanced malt and hop.

Been drinking this on and off for years and always grand to go back to an old and steady friend. Crowd pleaser and quite sessionable. Solid fare that still deserves qualitative recognition.

Served from a bottle into a Gulden Draak tulip.

A: Pours golden and hazy with little to no head.

S: Lots of sweet hops and tropical fruits. Not too strong of an aroma.

T: Big hop flavor up front with pineapple and tropical fruits, followed by a unique strong blend of malt as it finishes. The malt turns to almost a corn/grain flavor, but in a pleasant way.

M: Carbonated, compliments the style nicely.

O: A great IPA, I'm glad I got the chance to try this. Can't wait for Bell's to enter MD.

Growler into Tulip

A: One finger white head that’s supported by some mild to weak carbonation. Clear, filtered brew with a dark straw-golden hue, looks pretty light - has some light retention.

S: Mellow fruity aromas, tropical esters, with notes of earth. Mango, with remote spices, and subdued florals, tails of dry crisp pine. Bit of swirling provokes more tropical esters – papaya and smooth pineapple.

T: Fruity and mellow up front with malt presence that’s crisp and constructive. Mid mouth picks up the nose with earthy, fresh grass, mango, and other tropical esters carrying suppressed flowery flavor. The finish revitalizes the mild straw malt with the flavor of fresh pine needles and bitter natural sap. The pine and malt interactions yield a dry character that helps to transition the fruit facets into the after taste.

M: Well-bodied, light carbonation, refreshing, doesn’t leave too much after taste, and doesn’t over or under dominate the palate at any point.

O: This is a solid AIPA, definitely a contender for one of my favorites. Eloquently combines all elements that compose your ideal AIPA. Juicy style that is both refreshing and enjoyable to sip. I’m a big fan of the tropical fruit profile and centennial holds it down in my opinion. Winner.

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A-slightly hazy, light amber color. 1-1 1/2 fingers foam, dissipating slowly.

S-floral, citrus, touch of pine.

T-Floral hops, resinous, nice IPA.

M-Medium-full bodied, sticky, pleasant.

O-Very enjoyable IPA. More floral than pine. I tend to like the piney IPAs but this one does nicely and tastes especially good in a local pub's nonics.
