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.

Clear amber, a mild chill haze to begin with. Thin white cap of half a finger leaves rings of great lacing on the glass. Retention was average, not much of it left after a few dregs.

Balanced malt and hop aroma, starts with warm buttered croissants of all things with a bit of bakers yeast meddling with a moderate pine, orange citrus and bright herbaceous hops character, juniper and red berries come to mind.

Malt is standard two-row, solid breadiness with a bit of raw husks showing before the hops arrive with a leafy green herbaceous and pine flavor, balanced push between malts and hops. Moderate bitterness begins to cleanse the palate before alcohol and aftertaste leak in with some lemon Pledge solvent flavor that ghosts quickly in and out.

Where this beer lacks in overwhelming flavor or aroma it makes up for with a medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol pretty well hidden and easy to drink. (Can mouthfeel please be worth more on the damn BA rating scale?)

I can finally check off this beer on my IPA bucket list, a intricately crafted balanced beer but also leaves me very aware of my apparent conditioning towards the west coast varieties.

A - 4.5 - Nice orange amber color with a thick white head on it. Leaves nice lacing.
S - 4.25 - Pine, grapefruit, some earthy hops, breadiness from the malt.
T - 4.25 - Bitter pine, earthy hops, grapefruit, citrus zest, bready malt background.
M - 4.25 - Light-medium mouth feel. Aftertaste is pretty pure bitterness. Alc is well covered.
O - 4.25 - It's really good, but not as amazing as some people say.

Pours a light gold color. Hoppy and pleasant to the nose. A little watery at first but it finishes like an IPA. This is a relatively cheap beer so I would recommend it for a craft beer enthusiast on a budget. It's a solid IPA. It won't blow you away. It lacks complexity and feels a bit watery, but for the price, it's a good buy.
