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.

Golden hued with a decent head. The smell is decent with lots of citrus varieties, the hops definitely make themselves known. Carbonation is right on par.

The only problem is it tastes like I'm drinking a floral arrangement. I've heard lots of people use 'grapefruit' to define hop flavors but I've never tasted more than just hints of that until I had this beer, and my god is it pungent. There are hops all over the place, but it's just too flowery for my palate.

A- Pours a very clear coppery gold with a nice two finger creamy white head that sticks around and leaves thick lacing.

S- Sweeter than I expected with aromas of cake, pineapple, caramel, pine, biscuits, vanilla and lemon. Wow.

T- Not nearly as complex as the nose suggests. Lightly sweet bready malt leads on the tongue but piney and grapefruit like hop flavor quickly takes over with a strong, but not over the top, bitterness in the finish.

M- Thin and a bit prickly this seems like the standard for IPA's though I wouldn't mind a little more fullness.

D- It's tasty and is definitely right on point for an IPA but I'm a little let down that the complexity in the nose is lost in the flavor and it ends up being nothing more than good.
