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.

I'm usually not a huge fan of IPA's but right now this is probably my favorite one. I was just introduced to it is year and really seem to enjoy it. Naturally there is a lot of hopps in the beer but it really is a good blend of flavors as well. I can smell and taste a small hint of pine as well in the recipe.

A - clear gold, 1 finger white sticky head, medium texture. Light to medium carbonation.

S - Grapefruit and lemon. A vague herbal note.

T - Hoppy, but not crazy. First thing I tasted was malt and honey, actually. Then grapefruit followed by lemon. Actually, it's more like lemon thyme (not lemon and thyme -Lemon thyme). The herbal and citrus notes are really well integrated together. There's also a semi-artificial quality to the lemon --like Fruit Loops almost.

M - light to medium body. Malt backbone. Great amount of fine carbonation.

O - a great IPA. Really like this. This would have paired really well with a lemon thyme panna cotta we used to serve at a restaurant I used to work at.

This is just as good as any other IPA that is on the market right now, but this seems to just be exploding in popularity lately. There have been lots of great deals on this beer as well. It is very hoppy of course, but to me it has a slightly more florally flavor that other IPAs.

This is my favorite beer; I almost always order it when I go to a bar.

The appearance is very hazy with a golden orange color and a decently sized head.
It smells very hoppy with hints of citrus.
It tastes very hoppy and slightly bitter. The sweet and bitter flavors balance perfectly.
Overall, I love this beer and I highly recommend it to people that like IPA's with hop's and a high alcohol percentage.

A - Bright, hazy orange.
S - Faint grapefruit and citrus aroma.
M - Medium body, crisp medium-dense carbonation, crisp, and clean mouthfeel.
T - Good balance. A little piney sweetness. A little bitter at the end.
O - Easy to drink. Nothing stands out.

Decent IPA. Worth another shot in the future.

Update
Solid beer - along the lines of Stone IPA and Founders Centennial IPA. Nice. Scores updated.
