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.

4.45/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a translucent gold with one full finger of pure white head. The foam takes a bit to settle and there is a decent amount of lacing left on the glass as it drinks.

S: The nose is light malt and a good helping of pine an citrus. I get a lot of orange and lemon and a good bit of pine. Nothing too crazy in the nose, here. It smells juicy and inviting.

T: It starts out sweet and covers the palate. The hops take charge in the middle where I get pine first and then some great orange and citrus notes a bit later. As it moves to the back end, I get more grapefruit type hops and a bit of yeast.

M: Medium bodied beer. It starts out wet, tightens up in the middle, and finishes slightly drying that to the carbonation. The grapefruit really intensifies after the beer is gone. With that being said, nothing is too intense. The balance of malt is hops is great. Super drinkable.

O: Wonderful beer. It's spot on for the style, and I love drinking this beer whenever I get the chance. I'm glad to have finally reviewed this one.

3.26/5  rDev -23.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: golden orange in color. fast fading head, not super carbonated

Smell: A bit of pine smell, but it is very vague

Taste: Very malty. The hop flavor is very prominant leaving a bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, even silky and full bodied.

Overall: I am not a huge fan of IPA's in general so I tried to be unbiased in my review. It tasted a bit less strong than some of the other IPAs I have tried so, for someone who doesn't typically like IPAs, it is not bad at all.

Got this one from Total Wine in Tampa. From notes.

A - Poured bright and golden. Mild carbonation with a good 2 finger fluffy white head. Great finger of retention and great, thick lace rings. Beautiful.

S - Lovely grapefruit, pineapple, lime, citrus, crackery malt aroma. Not pungent, but nice.

T - Good hop again. Orange, floral. Less citrus and aggressive than aroma. Less abrasive than West Coast takes on the style. Very pleasant floral and orange flavour. Nice stuff. Balanced well and the floral hop flavour is nice.

M - Good carbonation, full body, not overly bitter but it's there.

O/D - A delicious IPA. Very sessionable and the ABV is well hidden. I could drink this one all day.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served in pint glass.

Appearance: Simple amber, heavy bubbles on the body. Nothing to go crazy over. Body creates a white head rising to maybe 1/4".

Smell: light pink grapefruit scent, pretty descent wish it was more potent.

Taste: a fruity beer believe it or not, complex with citrus and hops. This beer as far as taste is concerned which in my opinion is the most important propery of all beers...incredible.

Mouth: a nice bubble texture obviously consisting of an almost heavy carbonation. Smooth...and I'm serious.

Overall: this beer is a flavor bomb, on tap here on my little getaway here in PA. Would I buy again, heck yea...I'm shooting for a few more. Salud.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Dark amber colored with an average sized off-white head.

Aroma & Taste: You'll love this if you're a hop head. Strong hop notes. Starts hoppy with a long finish that has some sweetness at the end. Herb notes and pine, possible grapefruit notes at the end giving it a slight sweetness. Overall though, it's hoppy and bitter.

The aroma is overwhelmingly hoppy! Notes of pine and hop are pretty much the only distinguishable scents. However, I was a bit disappointed when the beer wasn't as bitter as it smelled like it was going to be. It seems like the bark was worse than the bite. The finish was clean and hoppy. I'm not generally a fan of the IPA style, with it's overt hoppiness, but this one was done in an exceedingly balanced way, that made it a joy to drink.
