22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 5/10/2013. Pours moderately cloudy orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop and malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, floral, pine, grass, caramel, toast, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, pine, grass, caramel, toast, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a nicely balanced malt backbone that does not overpower the hops; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, sticky, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish as expected. Overall this is a damn nice session IPA! Well balanced and packed with plenty of hop and malt flavor for the ABV; and extremely smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

Drinking in honor of my dad, a Michigan brewed beer.Poured into an imperial pint glass a deep hazed copper color with a tightly formed one finger off white head that took it's time settling.Aromas of piney hops and sweet biscuit malts,not complex but nice enough.Flavors of piney and pithy citric hops over top of a big sweet caramel base,the maltiness is almost as big as the hops.It's not overly complex but it's packed with good flavor.

22 oz. bottle (vintage 2013), poured into an imperial pint glass.

A- Clean, copper body with a 1-1/2 finger, tan head after a normal pour. Light carbonation. Really good head retention and awesome stick. A second pour clouded things up with some sediment.

S- Clean, fresh hops. Juicy grapefruit and very leafy, organic tones at first. Some grainy malts in background. Tropical fruits later. Caramel comes through with warmth with leathery notes (almost like a lighter barleywine).

T- Great balance. Sweet and bready malt backbone stands up against significant citrus and leafy/minty hops. Clean, dry finish. Hints of caramel and tobacco with warmth. Really robust.

M- Medium-full body, medium-light carbonation.

O- I love a balanced IPA, and really appreciate the use of Michigan grown hops. Maybe a bit pricy for a standard IPA @ $5.19 for the 22 oz. If not cost prohibitive (and limited availability) it could be an IPA rotation mainstay. It was a great pair with French bread and white cheddar and dill cheeses before firing up the grill for a summer, burger cookout.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Holland Brewing Company branded imperial pint glass

Pours a glimmering light copper topped with a one and a half finger clean white head. Above average retention, abundant splotchy lacing. Very light pine, fresh green tea, floral notes and hints of mint on the nose. Opens with clean herbal notes, white tea, and edible orchid. Finishes with floral notes, light pine, and moderately bitter grapefruit rind. Medium body, wonderful mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation, perfect for this brew. Smooth, velvety, with just a hit of creaminess on the finish. A crisp and refreshing IPA; extremely enjoyable.

Pours a clear copper color with just over one finger of head that slowly settled to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Quite fragrant aroma. Plenty of citrus and floral hop notes. A little bit of toasted, bready malt underneath the hops.

The promising malt bill did not really show up in the flavor. A touch of sweetness but otherwise this is a pure hop display. Citrus rind, orange, and quite a bit of bitterness.

Feels like a substantial IPA. The carbonation is splendid resulting in a pleasant overall texture.

Not an IPA that sets itself apart from a lot of others. Probably would mean more to Michigan beer drinkers. Wish the malt came out a little more ass I believe they used some promising ingredients.
