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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Thick head, off white from a 32 oz growler. Surprisingly clear given the huge amount of hop oil that must be in the glass. Pale cedar color, sheets of good lacing, and the beer stays covered all the way down. Slight to no carbonation visible.

Great nose. Light pale and caramel malt. Bread, citrus and grapefruit skin. Clean but lightly fruity yeast. Toasted grains and a touch of earth and big citrus hop blast.


Taste is so well balanced. Delicious broad caramel malt. Toast and bread crust. A smooth progressively building hop bomb. A mild undercurrent of pine with a heavy overlay of grapefruit. Finish is dry, short, and hop oily. A grapefruit dryness lingering.

Feel is frothy and smooth. Crisp and quenching. Weight is just right, with no watery qualities. Smooth, lightly creamy carbonation. Highly drinkable.

A great beer to revel in the joys of craft brewing, and what it brings to the enjoyment of beer.

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

Look: Impeccable clarity allows one to admire the ombre effect of this beer's coloration: Light yellow deepens into a dark apricot in the glass, while a flurry of bubbles fly upwards to form a slim, white head.

Smell: The strong aroma of both floral and citrus hops pack a strong punch, while sweet apricot and peach aromas lighten the mood. Promises to be a powerful IPA.

Taste: It becomes evident that the aroma is not a complete preview of this beer--while the fruitiness is certainly there, the hop flavor is more earthy than it is citrusy, and a surprisingly large amount of malt comes through in the aftertaste. High bitterness bites hard at first, but then quickly fades away.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a good level of carbonation to complement the hops...if only they were there in the finish. Crisp and refreshing.

Overall: A deceptive beer. The aroma and mouthfeel belong to a wildly hoppy specimen with bright flavors, but the disappearing act of the bitterness hops and the overdose of malt in the finish throw things off balance. There are still many commendable elements, however, and the additional malt does add some nice complexity.
