Thanks to Alex for throwing this in on a great trade we did while in Detroit. Copper-orange pour with two finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Huge, juicy fresh hop nose with a nice solid sweet maltiness with hints of grapefruit and pine. The taste follows suit, with an incredible resiny fresh hop tang that is perfectly balanced with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Loads of mouth puckering grapefruit and pine, perfectly offset with a great orangey-caramel sweetness. The finish is dry but chewy at the same time with a great, crisp and tart bitter bite. The drinkability is off the charts. I only had one and I'm about in withdrawls craving a second. Another great Michigan beer!
