Ahhh, the much maligned Kalamazoo IPA. This pours a amber tan color with a floral, grapefruity aroma. There’s a delicately hopped floral and citrusy note on the flavor as well. It’s an easy drinker, with perhaps more of a “west coast” feel than their flagship Two Hearted. (280 characters)

22oz bottle from IAmJacksHopTongue (thanks Reid!). Bottled 5/20/13. Served in a small wine glass on 8/1/13.

Pours orangish gold with one finger pale head that lingers and leaves decent lace.

Smells of biscuit and light pine. More like what I associate with a lightly hopped amber than an IPA.

The cracker found in the nose dominates the flavor as well followed by muted orange peel, floral, bread and a dash of pepper.

Medium thin feel with moderate carbonation. Muted "hop bread" aftertaste.

All around lackluster. I'm surprised that the brewery that has delighted hopheads with Two Hearted, Oracle and Hopslam would brew and then release something so subpar. A brewery only release that I tried this one time but will pass in the future. (749 characters)

Obtained this bottle dated 10/18/13 (drank Jan. 2014) at the brewery gift shop. The body was a clear, copper color with a fine, off-white head.

The smell was leafy and soapy. Amarillo hops??

The taste was piney with only hints of sweetness. Gentle bitterness. A solid, simple IPA. Very drinkable.

The mouthfeel was medium in body with fine carbonation. (357 characters)
