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.

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.

A: Pours clear golden amber. The head is wide and persistent.

S: Smell is hoppy (citruses), herbal and mild (with grains and caramel malts).

T: Taste is fruity (oranges, grapefruits, orange peels), sweet (caramel malts with toasted undertones), spiced up by a faint piny bitterness. Mild bitter on the finish. Aftertaste is long and balanced.

M: Velvety with the right amount of carbonation.

O: For the review, the beer has been drunk a bit older than necessary. However, a solid IPA, balanced and with character.

served in a pint glass.

a - came to the table a glowing amber liquid with a finger of creamy, tan head. retention is excellent, calming to a thin cap and lasting for the duration. leaves spotty lacing in the glass.

s - orange, grapefruit, grass, faint honey.

t - malt base of toasted bread with just a touch of honey-like sweetness. big grapefruit notes with a piney bitterness that comes in at the end. well balanced given the huge hop character in this one.

m - firmly medium in body with the right amount of carbonation. very smooth.

o - quite enjoyable and well deserving of its reputation. noticeably better on tap than from a bottle. worth seeking out.
