4.2/5 rDev +8%
Served from the bottle into a Napoli Grande glass
A- Poured a clear pale orange color with a two finger soapy head that left lots of chunky soapy lace
S- Very fresh and slightly astringent aroma. Very earthy, caramel notes, citrus, and floral aroma. This beer smells exactly like when you walk into the Great Lakes production facility
T- Sweet cracker and biscuit malt character with caramel notes. Lots of earthy and grassy hops with some citrus and spice notes. Pretty bitter for an English IPA but well-balanced with the sweetness from the malt. As it warms you get a little bit of alcohol in the taste
M- Medium body, prickly carbonation, finishes dry, some nice alcohol warming
O- This is one of the beers that really got me into craft beer and I still love it. I can't believe I have never reviewed it.

Pours out a mild hazy orange color with a massive off white head. Holds three fingers at first and then settles down to a thick blanket of foam and chunky lacing. The head retention stays until the last sip.
The aroma is full of citrus and floral aroma, with a nice balance of bread like malt and mild alcohol sweetness.
the first flavor to hit the palate is the rich citrus notes. Grape fruit and orange hint from a complex mild sour flavor with a sweetness from the malt. The alcohol does have it's role in bringing a balanced flavor.
Medium bodied and easy to drink, but take it slow at 7.5% ABV
Over all this is one of finest IPA's in America. I would buy this ale again and again!! Cream of the crop.

3.95/5 rDev +1.5%
Pours a clear orange with a white head that lingers and laces.
Smells of bready, astringent grapefruit and some other floral notes.
Taste is bready, cracker stone fruit that goes into a more grassy and floral middle before ending on a bitter, slightly spicy hop note with lingering sweetness.
Medium to lighter body with overly present alcohol. Oddly boozy.
A fine enough IPA that is malty and hoppy with notes of spice and stone fruit but too boozy for its own good.

3.73/5 rDev -4.1%
355mL bottle into snifter
A - Pours a clear golden amber with a finger of rapidly dissipating head and no lacing.
S - Grapefruit, soap, apple, very light note of cherry
T - Citrusy hops, grape, apple, and a surprising amount of maltiness for an IPA.
M - Moderate body with low carbonation.
O - A tasty beer. A bit maltier and less citrusy than I usually like IPAs, but tasty nonetheless.
