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.

Poured bottle into pint glass

A- appearance was quite average. It's another IPA. This one was on the lighter side of the IPA color spectrum. A nice golden color.

S- A light floral note to the hops with some slight pine. The hops seem a little bitter on the nose. Some brown sugar sweetness. Some vapors that give me a hint that there is some alcohol in this one.

T- Some sweetness, some bitterness. The hops are very prominent and a little bitter but not too overpowering. Definitely getting some alcohol with this one. It tastes strong for an IPA. But, it is 7% ABV so it is strong. Any stronger and it would be a DIPA. In addition to the alcohol, some sugar on the finish. Not very complex as I am really only getting that bitter hop taste. Although it seems a bit one dimensional, it's satisfying.

M- This beer has some body to it. I wouldn't quite go as far as saying it's full bodied, but it is close. It's definitely drinkable. Carbonation is a bit low, perhaps because of the higher ABV?

O- Overall, this is a solid offering in the IPA style. It's fairly priced and it's finally available in my area in upstate New York. Before two weeks ago, I have never seen this beer before. I know this beer has been rated more times than any other IPA on this site, but honestly I don't see why. The American IPA is the top dog on the craft beer scene. Every brewery makes an IPA. Some make several. There are many many IPA's to choose from out there. Thousands. What makes this beer stand out from the others? I think it tastes pretty above average, but like I said, it's one dimensional. There's not a lot of depth. It is good. I could place it in my top ten IPA's, but it definitely wont fall in my top five. To me this doesnt live up to the hype.
