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 = A very pretty amber IPA, long-lasting head with lacing.
S = True to the label, it is heady with hops!
T = For the IPA lover, this would be heaven; for me, too hoppy, but IPAs aren't a favorite. Leaves a floral, hoppy aftertaste on the tongue.
M = A slight bit creamy and not overly carbonated. Quite nice!

I am not an IPA lover by any means. In fact, I am allergic to the hops as my head stuffs up almost immediately after the first few sips of drinking an IPA. But, the label didn't identify itself as an IPA, only in the verbiage on the back label did I discover its pedigree. So, in fairness, I would have to say in this review that this is one of the better IPAs I've tasted, although I would have initially skipped it if I had known it was an IPA! Very cool artwork on the label, too.

A - A cloudy golden-orange color, with a nice but not extraordinary off-white head. Some persistence, and definite lacing.

S - Does not come out with huge swings, but nice subtle jabs of citrus and pine. Grass and vegetative qualities underlie the stronger fruit.

T - No doubt this has citrus at the front, but perhaps most surprising for me is which - lemon notes are near the top, with tangerine and orange underlying, fading into some pine and grass, with some sweetness. Given the strength of the hop, the finish is surprising in that there's not nearly the bitter bite you might expect.

M - With moderate carbonation and only minor drying, this is a very easy beer on the tongue.

O - I really enjoy this beer, and there's no doubt for me that I will be returning to it as a regular staple. I am a huge fan of grapefruit notes and the hops that make those possible, but this makes the case for other citrus themes from the hop. Top notch.

Always in my fridge. Always been a go to beer. Finally a review.

A - never really understood the point if this category. But what the heck, looks like a beer. Nice head amber orange color.

S - hard to beat. Beautiful aroma. Flowery, citrus, piney hop wonderfulness.

T - taste like it smells. Pich up something different everytime. Citrus orange, touch of grapefruit, sweeter tangerine maybe. Just enough malty backbone and sweetness to make you want to sip and sip again.

M - awesome everytime. Touch of creaminess before the perfect amount if carbonation hits your tongue. Goes down smooth but the hop bite is there and I find it consistent from beginning to well after swallow.

O - one of my favorites. Nothing obnoxious or mind blowing just keep drinking this and you will never grow tired or bored of.

A: Golden with a white head.

S: Tangerine, tropical fruit and papaya in the nose. Smells great.

T: Taste is pretty much the same, tangerine, lots of tropical fruit and papaya.

M: Very smooth and easily drinkable. Medium bodied.

O: This one was built up in my mind from things that friends had said, and it did not disappoint, which is quite noteworthy. So often beers are overhyped and disappointing.

Poured from a bottle into a green flash tulip. Lovely light straw color. Nice head and retention. Smell is amazing. Citrus, citrus and more citrus. Orange peel, grapefruit. Just an amazing smell. I think they should make a perfume that smells like this beer. Taste is just soooo good. Citrus, hops, maybe a little pine. Awesome, awesome beer. This should be a staple in every hop heads collection.
