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.

4.43/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Bright golden orange with a thin white head. Very effervescent, almost sparkling.

S- Strong citrusy hop smell right off the bat. Floral undertones folowed by light malt whispering "I'm here too"

T- Bitter citrus with floral coming through in the taste more than the smell would suggest. Light malt flavor wraps it all up without detracting from the hops.

M- Rather effervescent, very refreshing.

D- The only thing getting in the way here is the 7.0abv. Very drinkable for a non-session beer.

In my opinion easily among the best IPA's out there. Very seldom will you hear people disscuss IPA's without mentioning this beer.

Nose: flowery, citrusy, grassy hops, light fruit, melon.
Pours gold to amber with a light chill haze under a 1" off-white foam cap. Lacy.
Begins with rich malt then the fruit somewhere between peach and apricot rises accented by hop citrus, a slight earthiness, finishing with an assertive citrus rind bitterness.
Crisp, well balanced, medium bodied, with carbonation just above average in intensity.
