I love Great Lakes and I also love IPA's so I found this beer to be amazing. This brew has a nice straw color and nice two finger head that laces nicely down the sides of the glass. There are some light citrus notes present on the nose. The taste has a nice and light hop spiciness that fits the alcohol content very well. I buy this brew all the time and would recommend this one to anybody.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Orange Amber with just a tinge of brown. Thin creamy head

S: At first a pleasant fruity smell, however it yielded to a musky smell not unlike the home brewed IPA I attempted. Very strange. If not for the musky after smell it would be very good.

T: Different. Not bad at all, but for an IPA, not great. Honestly, it tasted as if Guinness added hops to their draught to try and make an IPA.

M: Not unpleasant. For a 7.5 ABV IPA it drinks very smooth and easy. The alcohol is masked well.

O: Average IPA. Definitely not in the top tier, but not bottom cellar. Unique taste but not a memorable one. Good for a try in a pick six, but not much more.

12oz single poured into a standard pint. BB date of 5/2014. Purchased from Wegman's in Collegeville, PA.

A-golden pour. small white head that quickly recedes. no retention. no lacing. ton of carb bubbles at the pour, but they quickly dissipate. looked great for the first 30 seconds then kind of dulled.

S-major citrus. grapefruit. some pine. hops. some malt.

T-spicy hops. some caramel malts. grapefruit. some alcohol taste, but no overpowering. bitter finish.

M-light to medium bodied. little carbonation. smooth. dry finish. typical ipa.

O-nice ipa but nothing spectacular. I had high expectations for this beer and feel kind of let down. maybe I'm just over ipa's at this point. not all bad though-I would definitely pick this over many of ipa's.
