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.

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.

Thanks to Sarah for the 12oz.

Golden with plenty of white head. Nice lace and retention. Smells of sweet malts, citrus, and hops.

Tangy citrus up front. Mellow, malty backbone holds the hoppy bitterness in check. Almost watery towards the end, but it works well. Very pleasant, extremely sessionable. One of my favorite single IPAs.
