On tap in a pint glass at Woodland's on 8/25/12

Pale, hazy, dirty orange hue. Thin head with skimmed retention. Patches of soapy, dissolved foam make for decent lace.

Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, orange, peach and hints of pineapple. Juicy tropical goodness. Dry, rye bread backing. Tastes moderately bitter with a rye punch. The hops are not quite as brilliant as in the aroma, but it still tastes good; the tropicalia is dulled a bit. Medium feel with appropriate moderately high carbonation. The finish has residual rye and bitterness.

I hoped this would be good and it is! It's the best "IPA" Great Lakes has done, at least of the ones I have tried. Worth a shot if you see it around town.

05/11/13 (Bottle):

Much fresher, hop-wise. Juicy orange and fresh grain aromas. Bright, green, oily hop flavor with some spicy rye. A little of that leafy earthiness that I get from most hoppy Great Lakes beers. Creamy soft medium body. Superior to when I had it on tap.

@ BrewMasters (4/3.5/4/4/4)

Hazy orange with a slender head that leaves some quality rings behind on the glass. Aromas of orange, citrus rind, pulpy juice, floral hops, and some earthiness. Sugary, juicy hop flavor upfront, citrus pulp, and spicy/peppery rye. Not too bitter and a little dry with some oiliness. Nothing amazing, but certainly worth the pint.
