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 label on the back describes the beer as having a crisp finish and a strong floral hop aroma. On the bottom of the label, the bottling date is listed as 02/06/13

Poured into a Libbey tulip glass.

Pours a beautiful golden color with bright yellow highlights. Formed a soapy finger-width head that dissipated within the first 5 minutes. Leaves a spotty amount of lacing that has a soapy consistency. A minor cm or so head remained throughout the duration of the drinking session.

As described, the aroma is potently floral and hoppy. A sweet, bready malt pierces the hop aroma, giving way to a floral scent. Hints of pine, grass, citrus, grapefruit, and lemon are present. The aroma is very well balanced. No one scent truly dominates (not including the sharp sweetness from the malts). Mouthfeel is light and has moderate carbonation.

The initial flavor is citrus that instantly gives way to the bready, caramel sweetness from the malts, and then transitions into a bitter, floral finish with a slight astringency. The finish is crisp and moderately dry. The finish is not extensive at all. Aftertaste is bread and hops.

This beer is extremely well balanced and highly drinkable. One of the more pleasant IPAs I’ve had in recent memory.

Picked up two of these as part of a mixed-six in Traverse City Michigan two weeks ago.

Tulip glass fill from a 12 oz. bottle.

a. A happy nearly ckear amber. Finger plus thick head shrank slowly to a nice white surface film with a heavier foam ring which spread evenly as lacing as it was drained.

s: Mild fruit.

t: Nice light citrus/pine hop notes with enough hop bite to let you know it's there.

m: Refreshingly light. Quite a lot of carbonation.

o: A great warm weather drink. Nicely balanced.
