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.

4.58/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:
Pours a hazy gold color with plenty of visible carbonation and topped by a thin, white head that leaves plenty of lacing behind.

Aroma:
It's intoxicating! A sweet, malty base supports tons of citrus. Not much here in the way of hops except for faint pine notes.

Taste:
Simply put?.. Epic! Up front, you're treated to a bouquet of sweet, tropical fruit and a bit of malt that concludes with the perfect amount of bitterness and some grassy hoppy goodness. Incredibly balanced. Incredibly delicious!

Mouthfeel:
Despite its presentation, there is hardly any noticeable carbonation from this medium-bodied beer.

Overall:
This is a personal favorite of mine and a frequent visitor to the shelves of my fridge. It should be a frequent in yours too!

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

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 6 September 2013

Appearance: A clear yellow-gold color with a good one-and-a-half finger white, frothy head. Left magnificent lacing down the edges of the glass.

Smell: Very clean floral and grapefruit hop notes in the nose.

Taste: A magnificent blend of hops and sweet malts. This is one incredibly balanced IPA- there is a strong hop presence, but a very nice malt backbone that really carries the taste of this beer. Unlike other IPAs where the maltiness seems to play a secondary role, or becomes apparent on the palate late in the tasting process, the sweeter malts are detectable throughout a sip and play well with the hoppiness.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation for the style makes the beer appropriately full-bodied.

Overall: One of the most balanced IPAs I've had, and a very good one. I like how the hops and malt played off each other during the entire sip, rather than one heavily dominating up front/on the back end. Would buy again and highly recommend.
