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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - dark burnt yellow color with a rich head that leaves a nice lacing

Smell - rich malty flavor with little hints of citrus. No much hops on the front end.

Taste - lots of malts in this one. I do not get a lot of citrus or bitterness from this one.

Mouthfeel - this leaves your mouth still wanting more.

Overall - this is quite an enjoyable beer for sure. Not sure it lives up to the hype, but I still really enjoyed the beer.

3.44/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours with a solid finger of head. A light burnt orange color to the brew. Below average carbonation active in the glass while drinking. Sticky rings of lacing left at each level of the beer.

Smell: The front is a citrus heavy aroma with main accents of oranges, tangerines, and pine. The malt adds a distinctive punch that again is heavy on the nose. The dominant tones of this beer seem to keep anything else in check from adding complexity to this brew. Very bold and straight forward.

Taste: Pretty much what I would have expected after the aroma with some added complexity. The front right away is a tasty bouquet of tropical fruits. The body is the heavy tones of bitter hops and thick malt. The finish returns with some tropical fruit tones and resin.

Mouthfeel: Pretty middle of the road. Decent floral tones with the malt and hops taking their toll on the palate.

Overall: I remember having this early in my craft career and not being impressed so I figured it was time to try it again. I'm not going to sit here and call it a shitty beer, just not an IPA made for my palate. Too heavy all around and not enough complexity with the hop profile.
