A: Poured form the 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a very cloudy orange with little off-white head that dissipated quickly.

S: Nice and balanced - ready malt and an earth hope note that is slightly spicy, like clove and allspice. Seems like a good fall beer, surprisingly.

T: Resiny and earthy with lot of malt actually. Biscuit and a vague sweetness. Super balanced for an American IPA. Finishes more malty with just a touch of bitterness that reminded me more of an English style beer.

F: Slightly sticky with a little carbonation.

Overall: I loved the balance of this beer and would pick it up again for sure.

Good color for an IPA, appreciate the cloudy too.
This is one of the best smelling beer's I've ever had. Very hoppy, obviously, but a perfect balance of earthen floral and citrus. Love it.
Mouth feel is lighter than I prefer, but good for a hot summer day.
Taste is interesting. Obviously hop forward, mostly earthy. Mostly earthy, where I prefer significantly more citrus. Similar to Elysian Space Dust--I say this because that's a fairly widely distributed beer--if you like non-citrus IPA's best, this is for you.

random on tap. Vaguely heard of the brewery. Never heard of the beer. Super crisp and refreshing. Citra-y but with more of a bite. gooden color. Full but bubbly. Overall a really nice hidden gem. Will seek this out at some point if ever in the Saugatuck area.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a beige/very dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, malts. Taste is pine, citrus, minty, some malts are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, nothing special, but a decent beer.

The Saugatuck B.C. phase of the Bottle Backlog eradication here at Chez Woody continues.

Following my Pop! of the cap, I employed a very gentle pour since previous reviewers had mentioned haze and/or cloudiness & the challenge for me is to create clarity. Once in the glass, a vigorous swirl raised just under two fingers of dense, foamy, tawny head with modest retention. Color was a slightly-hazy Amber to Deep Amber/Light Copper (SRM = > 9, < 13, but closer to 9). Nose was dank, citrusy & piney and, as one fellow reviewer put it, citronella. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was a riotous mélange of biscuit and caramel malts with grapefruit rind and pine resin. Bottle marks it as 72 IBUs and it tasted like it. It was the kind of American IPA (AIPA) that really makes this self-avowed hophead's mouth water. Finish was dry, with a very citrusy flavor lingering well past the swallow. The maltiness that I initially perceived was totally overwhelmed by the hops. I had no problem with it, but I know that imbalance is undesirable for some.
