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.

Thanks to Panichi for bringing this beer all the way to Japan.

A - Hazy light yellow body with extremely thick creamy head and thck lacying.
S - Extra fruit aroma of sweet apricot, pineapple and of course oranges.
T - fine balance of bitterness, fine lightly sweet malt, the flavors really go on rampage on the back of my palate.
M - Very light carbonation. Stunningly vibrant.
D - If they had this on tap in prison, I would say please lock me up! Great stuff!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours with rich golden cloudy color and a fizzy seeming head. The head lasts a short time. A nice opaque color.

S: Strong, hoppy smell. If you like this sort of really hoppy beer, and I do, this is a very strong beer to consider. Lovely, floral, fresh. A bit citrusy, but not so much as Bell's Oberon.

T: In the last year, this has become my favorite beer, though I have had other IPA's without considering it one of my favorite styles. It's got a surplus of taste, if anything. Crisp.

M: This beer fills the mouth; no awful cloyingness. Just the right carbonation.

D: Its smooth, balanced flavor makes it very drinkable, though it's more of a half session beer for me due to its 7.0 ABV.

Not sure if this is the best IPA out there, but that's what these reviews are for, and it's certainly a contender.
