I've had a few bottles before this review, so this is a review of several samples.
Most glasses have had a fresh hop aroma, but always with a strong malt base, but more pale malt than stronger/sweeter type.
This sample has less hops than other. Also seems to have a bit of yeast.
Pretty rich overall, both from full malt, but also from a hop oil. Bitterness is long and drying. Nice sweetness up front - sweetness from both malt and hops. Clearly both english and Am. style hopping. Complex and interesting.
Rather full mouthfeel and carbonated on flatter side, which I prefer.
This was a better beer than I expected. Overall good drinking beer. Better than most for style and a new favorite from this brewery.

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.
