Again on draft while visiting their brew pub in downtown Frankenmuth. Very nice 1 finger head with a light brown to yellow color, somewhat hazy. Good floral nose with plenty of scents of hops to go along. Plenty of sweet to go along with good not overpowering but ever persistent bitterness. Mouthfeel was good to above average had plenty of body and as much as people seem to beat this beer up I felt it could stand up to a lot of the smaller to mid sized breweries year round IPA's that I've had. Overall a nice beer that I will probably seek out from time to time and definitely have when I return.

Hazy, golden-amber pour with a 1-inch off-white, creamy head. Early release of carbonation. Sweet malt and hops in the nose. Grainy and grassy nose. Belgian lace forms. Lingering bitterness on the palate after initial citrus, followed by some metallic notes. Medium-light body. ABV is not noticeable.

12 oz bottle, undated but purchased arlier this month near the brewery.

Pour is hazy with a high level of visible carbonation. The amber body is topped by a proportionate and durable off-white head.

Both the aroma and the flavor reflect a slightly skunky element that is subtle enough to possibly be part of the hop component. In any case hops have citrus, pine and herbal aspects. Solid malt base. Mildly bitter finish and aftertaste are better.

Medium body with crisp, lightly aggressive carbonation.
