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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance:This beers pours a wonderful golden color with a slight yellow hue. The head lingers wonderfully and gives it a classical pale ale type look with a nice white foam.
Smell: gives off a very strong nice centennial hop aroma with notes of bitterness and citrus. Strong hop smells linger.
Taste: Medium bodied with a decent alcohol presence up front. Finished quite smooth and also gives a citrusy and bitter feel on the pallet.
Mouth: Pretty dry with a bitter feel. The carbonation definitely isnt overwhelming like in some IPA's and sits well in the pallet.
Overall: Great beer. Gotta be in my top 5. All around the board you cant poke anything wrong with this beer. Very well balanced and not overwhelming for an IPA. Usually overpriced though...

Bottle poured into a sam adams perfect pint.

A- Very clear golden yellow with a nice foamy 2 finger head. Pretty classic pale ale.
S- A surprisingly strong aroma when being poured and through the foam on top. centennial hops, Somewhat fruity, lemons and orange. But very skunky in a nice way. A very sweet smell coming from this one and it has a rather light characteristic.
T- Some fruit skunkyness on the way in. A surprising alcohol presence but only every so often. Not very bitter for an IPA. This really has a lot of taste characteristics similar to a gold ale or lager.
M- Not a lot of bitterness from the hops and a very light/easy to drink quality. Goes down smoother then smooth and rather refreshing.
O- I have had this a long time ago and remember it being better then it is. Id like to think that its because I got an old bottle but its less then 2 months old. Having said that, its a good beer, more along the lines of a pale ale then an IPA in my opinion. A good choice for any entry level IPA drinkers or somebody wanting a hoppy taste that wont bog them down.

A- Deep yellow to light orange, clear with a persistent slightly off-white head.

S- Pineapples right up front, I get a hint of orange, and maybe some other citrus. Some pine in there as well

T- Very much like the smell, dominating sweet pineapple taste, orange, with some lingering pine. There is a bitterness that I will describe as "satisfying" that lingers with the piney taste.

M- Soft carbonation, if that makes sense. It's in there, but isn't sharp. Feels smooth in the mouth. There's a comforting warmth that persists in the stomach.

O- Though I'm not typically big on any kind of IPA, I appreciate this beer and enjoy it quite a bit. The flavors develop nicely and make for a good drinking experience.

Well, I've wanted to try this one for a while, so when I drove Shangys for my Hopslam, I figured I'd pick up a case of this as well. I was not disappointed. Pours into my tulip glass with a huge, fluffy head. Smells nicely of citrus hops. Great taste: tangy, slightly bitter, very citrusy. Creamy feal for a single IPA. Overall an excellent beer,and not nearly as expensive or hard to get as its big brother, Hopslam.
