look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: An orange-ish glow with not a bubbly head.

S: Orange is the overwhelming smell. Some other fruits in there as well, though.

T: An orange flavored malt with some other fruit tastes. There is some hop to sip, but nothing overwhelming and the bitterness sits just long enough. The aftertaste is fruity.

M: The carbonation was seemed spot on and wasn't too much. It let the malt flavors really come out.

D: Definitely one of my favorite beers to drink. It has a pleasant smell and taste that goes down smoothly. For me, at least, it's a top-notch IPA.

Pours crisp golden and clear with a sustained, frothy white head.

Orange zest aromatics mingle with a slight bread yeastiness. Not overzealous, but mighty appealing.

Sweet grains and tingly lemon-lime hoppiness up front leads to a resiny bitter aftertaste.

Light-medium body, a very refreshing, beautiful beer.

Great Lakes strikes again!

Picked this up while I was in Ohio a few months back. Poured into pint glass.

A: orange/amber light carbonation, minimal head. More carbonation would be nice.

S: is this an IPA? Very caramel malty nose with orange hops. You'd never guess this was a modern day American IPA!

T: A quick hit of sweetness followed by a nice, subtle bite of grapefruity hops. As mentioned above, not your typical 'hoppy' IPA. Just enough hoppiness, in my opinion. Finish is very smooth with a slight lingering bitterness.

M: despite low carbonation mouthfeel has a little crispness to it and it's not too thin. Definitely medium.

D: A little too drinkable! For a 7.5% ABV IPA, neither the hops nor the alcohol are aggressive. Very smooth and clean.

Even though this is clearly less hoppy than most American IPA's I really enjoyed this. Very drinkable! This one's a keeper!

I poured this from a 12 ounce bottle into a goblet. It is an impressively clear copper color with a full thick two finger head.

The smell is a great floral hops scent with a hint of orange.

The taste is definitely citris, but seems a little more like grapefruit than orange. Of course, there is a nice kick of hops.

I love the creamy mouthfeel.

The is a very drinkable beer. I could drink many, even though it is a 7.5% abv.

This is one of my favorite beers.
