Dark Amber color, darker than most Midwest IPAs. Heavy malts on the nose, not a floral or piney as most of this style. Excellent IPA flavor manages to fight thru the strong malt backbone. Finishes with slight malt aftertaste. This one seems to be an old ale and IPA hybrid. Interesting take on the style. Bought a sixer from the brewery to go for additional analysis.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Good looking head, mild haze in the deep amber hue. Smells of caramel covered hop cones, fallen apple, toasted bread, and a bit of orange pith. Very sturdy malt backbone gives the hops a lot to take on, a big dose of bitterness is there to balance but the flavor clearly says IPA. Right from the 1st sip this has all of the speak of a no-coast IPA. Old school in a way, balance and drinkability are key but there is no sacrificing either the malt or hops here. Great drinking.

Hazy, and unfiltered. Frothy off-white head settled quickly. Clean nose with a hint of lemony/citrus note. Has a bitter presence on the aroma side as well. Solid malt presence. Overpowers the hops, though there is an overall sense of balance. Slight grassy hop finish at least st the start of the glass. Average mouthfeel , would prefer a bit of a crisper finish in this one. No date on bottle. Not sure if this was the freshest bottle.... but I won't harp on that! I really enjoyed the play on the English style here.

If you like Careless Whisper from Our Brewing Company (Holland, MI) or Crooked Tree from Dark Horse (Marshall, MI), this one is for you!!! Of all the beers I was able to try in the Upper Peninsula, this one is my absolute favorite!!! It has a great hop/floral bouquet on the front end and a fantastic malt finish! Next time I'm in Marquette, there's no doubt where I'm going for beer and which one it will be!!!!

this is a cool hybrid english and american ipa. its english features include its appearance, with more of a caramel copper color and a frothy khaki head, and also its malt base, which is as big as its hop profile, not too sweet, but definitely sturdy, nice for fall drinking. american in yeast i think, because there isnt much yeast character to this, but definitely american in its hopping. citrus, maybe grapefruit is the predominant hop flavor, bitterness is in the upper medium range, and the alcohol is certainly there in the finish with it, id say this is close to 7% abv, although i cant confirm that. drinks a little heavy, but is not under carbonated. the hops are fresh and the beer is clearly well made. good introduction to this brewery for me, i will look forward to more. i think this grabs the best elements of both of these ipa styles and fuses them well.

A delicious American IPA with a dark copper color and two fingers of foamy head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Smells of orange peels. Deep grapefruit citrus notes followed by a malty backbone. Finishes bitter making you want another swallow.
