Had on tap at the Tigers game on Sunday.Poured copper with a thicker but quick to fade white head.Alot of malt in the nose with caramel/biscuit malts standing out,citric hops are present but not real big.The hops are a little more assertive on the palate giving some tropical fruit and citrusy notes,the malt base is still pretty hefty giving off some sweet caramel and breadiness.Not bad but not a big hop assertive ipa,still better than most of what you are gonna get at a ballgame.

Finally! Griffin Claw has launched their flagship beers in a 4-pack of 16oz cans!

A: Much lighter than one might expect from an IPA. Almost a pale-golden hue. Good lacing, but no head retention.

S: Ohhh my. Huge hop bitterness. Very piney. If you don't like piney IPAs, stay away from this one. I love them, however, so I think this beer smells fantastic. Almost no maltiness present. This is all about the hops.

T: Just with the smell, huge hop bite, both up front and on the backend of the tongue. Little malt presence.

M: Just fantastic. Slight stinging/tingling with a very crisp lightness to it. Makes me want to have another sip as soon as I finish the first.

O: Griffin Claw is an awesome brewery, and I'm happy that they have finally started to make their beers available in beer stores. If only some of the other great MI brewers did this as well... (I'm looking at you, Kuhnhenn.)
