From BeerAdvocate Magazine #73 (Feb 2013):

Not your usual IPA here, not as clean as expect either but still a decent sip. Hops are a bit brash and come across as perhaps too much though we are hopheads so we can take a bit of punishment. Enough malt to balance it out for the most part, the lively yeast left a trail of nuances for the palate to figure out or be confused with. Worth a try.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 6.9%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Pale copper color, good clarity, sticky lacing

SMELL: Citrus, mint, earthy, caramel, herbal, evergreen, browned apples, musty yeast, estery

TASTE: Creamy, medium bodied, very bitter, semi-astringent, caramel, dried grass, yeast, herbal, minty, citrus rind, tropical fruit, mineral, semi-dry bitter finish

Bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Clear gold-orange. One inch white head. Minor retention. Nice light lacing.

S - Pine and malt

T - Let stand for 5 minutes. Starts with sweet malt, with citrus and grassy hops. Ends in a bold, dry blast of pine.

O - An excellent IPA that exceeded my expectations. Well done, Frankenmuth!

A little too dry for my taste. Purchased at a local Kroger for $9.99 a six. I was going to pickup a six of Belgian White. However, showing loyalty to a Michigan brewery I decided to try
Batch 69 instead. Need to drop the price to be more competitive.
