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.

4.23/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12-ounce bottle, served in a pint glass
Appearance: a nice, cloudy, golden color; honey-like; thin white head that dissipates almost immediately
Aroma: very nice; a bit of hops; nice citrus notes, good amount of grapefruit coming through; a few floral notes...maybe a little pine?
Taste: a great beer; good amount of hop to start, but moves through to the malt; citrus notes start to come out, especially grapefruit; and then a dry, hoppy finish
Mouthfeel: feels slick; great carbonation and it moves through fast if you're not careful!
Overall Impression: I love this beer, it's a great IPA; the hops are present throughout the experience (from smell to swallow) but are balanced by some malty sweetness and grapefruit (and other citrus flavors); it's hard to say what my favorite part is, but if you were to force my hand, I would have to say the hoppy presence (I mean c'mon, it's an IPA!)

3.73/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Super hazy orange hue with an off-white head.

Aroma: Orange, citrus, caramel malt.

Taste: Big malt bomb but with enough hop assertiveness to stay within the style. The hop flavor is a mix of watery orange, a hint of grapefruit, and pine. It imparts a moderate bitterness upfront that fades to a slow burn in the aftertaste. Very palatable. Dry finish. It is as robust as the 7% ABV suggests.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Easy drinkability but not quite a 'juicy' IPA.

Final Thoughts: I've had this one before and it's never blown me away like its collective rating would suggest. It's simply a good American IPA. Would I drink it again? Only if it's the only IPA option.

Had this beer at Tallahassee brew-fest

A lot of people like to glorify bells, and proclaim this to be "the best ever" for IPA's, and I don't like to buy into the hype

I also do not like IPA's, so I'm the first to rip them apart, but I just cant bring myelf to hat this beer
Its just too good, and thats coming for a malt loving beer snob like myself

The hops character does not grate on your taste buds like so many other IPA's, and its mouthfeal/body reflects its hopp bitterness perfectly

If you see it, get it. Its a great IPA, and although its not my favorite, I feel like its a a very well made brew that deserves the reputation it has.
