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.

Time for the 2,808th review of the beer voted the 2013 Number 2 Beer in America by members of the AHA. Let's see what happens.

A: Two Hearted pours with a decidedly hazy peach hue. It's topped by a dense and rocky cream cap that sticks as a thick blanket of foam all the way down the glass. A heavy sheeting of lace is left in the beer's wake.

S: My nose picks up a lot of pepper and citrus out front. A bit of nutmeg and sweetbread sit behind the heavier aromas. The overall effect is much more interesting than the grapefruit-bomb IPAs I've had from a few too many other breweries.

T: Dry sweetbread flavors start things off, but are very quickly replaced by a strong bitter bite. The bitter flavors carry a generous dose of lemon and grapefruit citrus that are buffered by pepper and anise. The bitterness lingers long after each sip is completed. A dry and slightly puckering finish rounds things out.

M: The body is both oily and sticky, with a slightly high dose of tingle.

O: Okay. I can see why so many hop lovers covet this beer. It's bitter without being pallet wreaking, while provide much more complexity than many (most?) American IPAs. It's not a Top 10 beer on my list, but it is awfully nice to drink.

Pours golden with about three fingers of white pillowy head.

Smell is mild hoppy and almost a bit buttery.

Taste is hoppy, floral, sweet, almost tart. Earthy finish.

Pretty drinkable. Great IPA, very well balanced. Thanks to Sciphish for this wonderful bottle.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: a light orange color. pretty good clarity. a finger or so of a off white head that leaves a bit of a lacing

Smell: floral hops with a bit of citrus. lots of hops. slightest hint at some malts

Taste: again with the strong hops. floral dominates but citrus is up there. maybe a hint of spiciness

Mouthfeel: fairly resiny, but light and drinkable for the content.

Overall: a solid ipa by a solid brewery. not much else needs to be said

Picked up a sixer of this at Merchant's Fine Wine in Dearborn. Been looking forward to finally trying this brew.

Poured into a Bell's nonic. Bright golden in colour, with about a half inch of sturdy head which lasts for most of the glass, and produces some nice sticky lacing.

Bready, with a strong whiff of grapefruit from the Centennial. Some additional tropical hop flavor and a mild wine character.

Tasty IPA with solid hop presence (grapefruit, mild mango, other citrus, wine), dry bready and mildly astringent finish. Very smooth, lighter bodied, great carbonation.

Very sturdy IPA, would certainly be a regular pickup if it were available for me.
