4.59/5  rDev +22.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: a lighter shade of orange. Very hazy. Two fingers worth of an off white head that slowly fades

Smell: strong hops. Citrusy, but more than just plain citrus hops.

Taste: big and bold and juicy hops. Strong juicy citrus flavor. Not complex but just really tasty

Mouthfeel: strong bitterness. Juiciness leaves a sweet refreshing taste to go with the bitterness

Overall: another one of my favorites from arbor brewing. The juiciness of the hops is just unbeatable. I usually like a more dimensional ipa but I loved this one

Served on tap in a pint glass at Shakespeare's Pub in Kalamazoo, MI.

L- Deep golden color, slight bit of haze, one finger white head.

S- Wonderful mix of apricots, citrus, dank, mango, and a little bit of floral.

T- Similar to aroma, fruity with some light floral and dank notes. Great sweetness and a medium bitterness. The malt bill isn't really noticeable and right where I want my IPAs.

F- Medium, typical single IPA.

O- A really great single IPA and one that not many people know about. I'm fortunate to have a place here in town the has it on tap pretty much all the time so I've gotten to know this beer really well and I think it's right up there with Two Hearted as the best Michigan IPAs. Don't usually buy bottles of it though as ABC doesn't bottle date.
