On tap at Burdick's in Kalamazoo while watching Thanksgiving football with the gf's family.
Pours a nice orange with a small white head that left some lacing down the glass.
Smells of citrus and piney hops. Malts shine through a bit, but definitely hop forward.
Immediately am hit with a good mix of a citrus and pine bite. Rounds into just a touch of malty sweetness in the middle before finishing resiny and dry.
Enough malt to kick the mouthfeel up a notch and good carbonation.
The perfect beer to wash down all the turkey and rhubarb pie. Resembles a good old West Coast style IPA. I'm curious to try this from a bottle sometime to see if the flavors hold up. It seems like something that may fade pretty quickly.
*edit 6/12/12* Had it out of a bottle last week. Still delicious. Now if only they'd distribute here.
Serving type: on-tap

Why do I think a slightly hoppy Bud Light. Better than Coors but not by much. Very disappointed. I really would have been better off with a Bud Light or Coors and saved about five bucks! I would not recommend this beer at all. It's the first High Point I've tried and probably the last.

A: Pale amber in color; slightly cloudy in glass; minimal head; left heavy lacing on glass
S: Faint citrus hoppiness; slight grassy notes; not pleasant
T: Nothing to distinguish this ale; a bit of a hop bite at first followed by an unpleasant aftertaste - almost astringent
M: Fairly watery mouthfeel
