Pours a bright yellow with a big mountain of soft, white head that has great retention. The nose has a sweet, bready, malty aroma with some faint hops in the background. The flavor has a big malty backbone that is bready and a little sweet, almost birthday cake like. The hop character is mildly citrusy, but big and bitter, and it dominates the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth with just the right amount of carbonation.

This is a nice IPA. I like the big malty backbone. The hops are solid and are a nice match to the malts. This is well balanced, smooth, and very drinkable.

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

It has a nice fruity and herbal type of aroma, with a nice full hop flavor. Surprisingly mild for an IPA, but refreshing at the same time.

Very drinkable for an IPA and extremely balanced between the hops and bitterness. Another great brew from the geniuses at Great Lakes.
