on tap at the Holiday Inn in Alpina, MI
Appearance: amber-brown, medium head, and good lacing.
Smell: pinecone sweet hops and malty goodness.
Taste: lots of yummy hops and bitter grapefruit with a malty touch at the end.
Mouthfeel: medium and bitter.
This is a good IPA. Loads of good fairly malty flavor. It is a must try for IPA fans.

Brilliantly clear, on the gold/amber bolder, but fairly pale. Pours a nice tight head, creamy and with nice retention.
Rich hop aroma, more on the pine side. Has some malty notes in support to balance out the aroma. Sampling fairly cold, but feel like their might be a little alcohol just out of reach in the nose.
Wow, hops! Big, solventy but not overpowering hop flavor, a piney/earthy flavor with a hint of nuttiness. I know the malt is there, but it is buried under the hops. Hop bitterness in the finish is intense yet somehow smooth.
Borderline tongue scraper in terms of hop bitterness on the tongue, but not overly astringent. Some definite warming, not out of line for the style. Medium-full body and medium carbonation.
A really expertly crafted beer. How it could be so hoppy without much in the way of harshness was impressive to me. The nature of the hop flavor isn't my personal favorite, but they used the hops to maximum advantage.
