3.4/5 rDev -12.6%
Poured from 12oz bottle to mug:
Pours a peachy gold with a fat fluffy white head and tons of needlepoint beading. Smells nice - bits of grapefruit and orange peel backed by slightly nutty, bready malts. On the tongue, it’s less aggressive than many others of its genre. Without knowing, I’d probably label this one an American Pale. It’s satisfying, nevertheless. Nicely balanced and drinkable.

3.1/5 rDev -20.3%
12 oz bottle into a pint glass
Ap- pours a clear amber color with decent head retention.
Ar- grapefruit and yeast
T- a little bit of hops and some grapefruit/citrus but I get more of a "hefewiezen" taste to me. Not really what I expected from an IPA. This beer hides the 7.5% alcohol really well.
M- good carbonation, light/medium body.
O- one of the few beers from GL that I am not impressed with. Tastes more like a Hefewiezen than an IPA to me. Not one I would seek out again. Pretty disapointed as a matter of fact.

Pours a deep, burnt amber color with good clarity. Head is only moderate, even with a vigorous pour, and disappates in short order. The aroma is fantastic--fruity, clean, and just enough pine to grab your attention without overpowering the gentler scents. The flavor is pretty much what you would expect from a solid IPA--bitter, fairly piney, without a whole lot else going on. Pretty good as far as IPA's go, but they aren't a style I typically enjoy, so I can't give the taste a ringing endorsement in the grand scheme of things. Overall, a nice yet unremarkable representative of its style.

A: Moderate, proud gold with busty, foamy head that stays strong. Medium bubbles complement nicely
S: Hoppy, a bit floral, but generally difficult to smell. Maybe I'm just stuffed up.
T: Hoppy without the intense bitterness. A bit of citrus on the end. Tasty and clean, but not too powerful.
M: Very tingly and carbonated on the tongue. A blast of alcohol and hops on the back as it washes down.
O: Good. Not my favorite, but a solid, consistent IPA.

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.
