Nice deep orange colour with a modest white head on top. Nose is big and hoppy, with grass notes present.
The flavour itself is easily amongst the best for a standard IPA brewed in Michigan. The backbone of the beer is an easy drinking, malty flavour, and it stands up well to the power of the hops from the nose, which arrive after a couple of seconds and steal the show. Definite grass aspects as well as resin. Bold and assertive.
The mouthfeel is fine, the body itself isn't overly thick, but good hop bitters and a great overall feel. The drinkability, also in the good range...definitely a brew that I will rebuy when / if I run into it again.
The bottom line: If you're an IPA fan, and you live in Michigan, then Short's take on the style is worth tracking down. I'm a big fan of the flavours that are present in this brew, and it's one of my personal favourites for its style.
