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 from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled on date of 8/13/13. Big thanks to Spartan13 for sending me this long-time want of mine!

A: A hazy dark golden-amber, small amounts of visible carbonation in the glass. A vigorous pour yields an initial bone-white two-finger head which quickly recedes to a soapy ring. Plentiful curtains of lacing.

S: ...maybe I've just been drinking too much Ruination lately, but this is one of the strangest-smelling IPAs I've ever come across...and I love it. Sweet caramel and toffee malt notes beneath a potent bouquet of citrus and tropical fruit. Grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, some peach and even touches of raspberry and honey. Minimal piney notes, but the slightest hints are present.

T: An initial touch of piney bitterness is quickly swallowed up by a fairly seamless mingling of sweet bready malts with fruity hop notes--orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, and touches of pineapple, mango, and apple. Tropical notes are more subdued on the palate than they were in the nose. Finishes dry and bitter, with a resurgence of pine notes that almost veer into being minty.

M: Medium-bodied, crisp at the front before the carbonation drops off midway through the mouthful. Overall perhaps somewhat lightly carbonated--I'd prefer a bit more effervescence.

O: One of the more unique beers that I've had thus far in terms of smell and taste. While I would've perhaps preferred a bit more carbonation, I can't deny that this beer's reputation is well-deserved. An excellent brew, and one that I'd return to again and again if I could.
