3.1/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours golden with a slight haze from the residual yeast. Two-inch, off-white, persistent head formed and settled at about 1/4 inch. The nose has distinct pine-notes along with citrus notes that may have overwhelmed the malt notes. Medium-light body, albeit a little shorter palate than expected. Nice hop flavors intermingled with pine and herbal notes towards the finish. The malt notes on the palate are also subdued by the hop flavors and bitterness. Nice carbonation level. Belgian lace does form. The ABV is not noticeable. In sum, very decent and a pleasure to drink, but not an IPA to seek out.

Nice to see a brewery up in BG getting their stuff out around the state.Pours into a standard pint glass an orange tinged lighter golden with a half finger white head settles pretty slowly.Boozed infused sharp citrus rind in the nose along with caramel biscuit malts,pretty big alcohol presence for the ABV.The flavors have alot of the same attributes of the aromas with sharp pithy citrus rind and sweet booziness playing a major role,some more leafiness comes thru in the finish.The mouthfeel is mellow and nice but the flavor and aroma profile I think needs a little tweaking.

I am at Cranker's Restaurant on 68th St.

It is at the 68th St exit on US131 south of Grand Rapids, MI.

I am quite impressed with this IPA.

Great Piney flavor.

Two finger head.

Really easy drinking beer.

Nice warm feel in the back of the throat.

I would buy it again.

Serving type: on-tap
