A: A clear orange that leaves a nice finger of off white head at the top with a little lacing around the glass as you drink.
S: Lots of citrus on this one and some good pine hops throughout.
T: Almost exactly like the nose, lots of citrus and hops and a slight hint of honey on the tail end.
M: Medium Bodied, and a good amount of carbonation.
O: I went to this brewery while in Michigan, a very nice place with good beer and nice people, this was a good brew enjoyed it.

Served on tap at the broadway location.
A: 1529 holds a nice copper color with significant haze, and active lacing. The only drawback is the lack of head retention.
S: the aroma is huge, with brite grapefruit and resiny pine.
T: brutal bitterness upfront, sweet juicy malt follows, and floral hops conclude the flavor experience. All the right flavors are there, and with great balance.
M: medium body is accented by bright effervescence, and a touch of hop astringency.
O: a very well made brew to say the least. I also tried each beer my group ordered, and was very impressed by the brewing chops exhibited here. I expect great things from this establishment in the future.

growler into a pint glass.
pours out a hazy, deep orange color, much more vivid than any other ipa that i have tried. a gentle pour formed a pinky of off white head that calmed quickly to a thin film. got a few legs of lacing, but pretty sparse here.
smell is a little on the weak side, but i'm getting mostly citrus fruit, some herbs and sweet malt.
taste follows nose, but brings a lot more to the table, especially malt. i'm getting grapefruit and orange or tangerine up front with some slightly bready, toasty malts in the middle. grassy, pale malts make an appearance before a dry bitter finish. hop character is prominent and lingers (as it should), but isn't overpowering. very well balanced and certainly delivers in the flavor department.
fine carbonation gives this one a nice smoothness. a little heavier in body and kinda chewy, but in a good way.
delicious and very drinkable. this might become a "go to" ipa since the brewery is right down the street from me.
