4.08/5  rDev +4.9%

Pours a clear yellow-golden color with a small white foam head that recedes quickly. Leaves a little bit of lacing.

Aroma is citrusy with some lightly toasted caramel malts. Some floral and grassy hops. Really nice balance.

Taste has more of the toasted malts. Sweet caramel and just a hint of citrus. A little bit of pine. Again, very well balanced. A little bit of bitterness, but it is a very nice touch.

Mouthfeel is medium-light. Well carbonated. A little resiny. Couldn't drink a ton of these because they are a little sticky, but man could I drink just one with ease.

A very good IPA. Taste isn't too overpowering, and not too much in the way of hops (which can be a refreshing change these days). I would strongly recommend at least trying this one.

I am a definite IPA fan and this beer does not disappoint, A great pour from the bottle or the tap. This beer offers a nice head that's not too foamy with an outstanding aroma with forward citrus and a hint of pine. Just the right amount of malt flavor to enhance but not overpower the hops. Excellent beer by Great Lakes.

3.7/5  rDev -4.9%

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received in trade from a non-BA member. Sampled on July 29, 2014.

It pours yellow to golden amber with a lingering off-white head.

The aroma has a slight toasted biscuit character but there is a sort of lemon zest, grassy hop sensation.

The body is medium.

The taste begins with a quick breaded malt character but swiftly turns into a floral, lemony hop finish. It tasted better as it warmed.

This pours out a bright amber color with a dense half-inch head of foam. Aroma offers both strong hops (floral, grassy) and good malt (light caramel) notes. Good flavor: plenty of bitterness, but also not afraid to show a complex malt side, caramel, a little nuttiness, a very faint roast perhaps? The yeast yields a touch of fruitiness as well. Finish is well-attenuated but not as bracingly dry as many IPAs. It is definitely a strong, heady beer as well.

Very good IPA.
