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.

4.28/5  rDev +0.2%

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Medium amber color, with yellow highlights. Three quarter inch head, left behind a nice lace on the glass.

S: Floral aroma- not overwhelming but noticeable.

T: Slight sweetness behind a pleasing, crisp and full bitterness, grapefruit, which leaves the mouth feeling clean.

M: Pleasantly effervescent, but not especially notable.

O: To my taste, right on target for an IPA- the bold hop taste pushes the limit but is by no means over-done.

Golden in color with a slight off white head leaving decent lacing. Fairly carbonated.

A nice floral aroma, big on over ripe citrus. Very hoppy.

Nicely sweet upfront, but with a matching bitterness in the end. The taste, like the aroma, is hop forward. Lightly tart citrus.

Moderate in body with a bit of prickle on the tongue. Almost creamy with long lasting flavor that adheres to the tongue as the beer dries in the finish.

An excellent and unusual hop offering. Quite pleasing on this summer evening.

Reviewed from session notes.

Lightly hazed amber with a surprisingly well-formed head for an IPA, decent retention stability and lacing properties. Smells (and tastes) mostly of big juicy oranges and pineapples, with medium amounts of floral, lemons, and pine resin, and with small amounts of dank and gritty earthiness over a medium-high level of a caramel malt sweet enough to tie it all together. Great smooth texture and just the right amount of carbonation to keep things lively.

One of the greats for the simple reason that it takes what is normally considered a "hop bomb" amount of hopping and balances it in a way that keeps the palate from being wrecked as rapidly as other IPAs, as well as showcasing an appealing pallette of hopping aspects.
