A - Pours hazy burnt orange with a one-finger white head. Light amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is sweet malts and citrus.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Sweet malts are front and center with some orange peel. There is a strong hop presence thorughout. The finish is bitter and boozy with a lingering alcohol burn.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is soft with dry sticky finish.

O - This is an agressive malt heavy DIPA. Enjoyable, but not something I'd want more than one of in a sitting.

Smooth and creamy, lightly hopped with some citrus, and maybe some fruit as well. It's really drinkable for the high alcohol content.

Bottled indicated brewed on 5/10/15, but very nearly a malt bomb. Very sweet.

not bad.... a little malty to go with the heavy malt and high abv..... the $4.29 price tag seemed a little steep but at least we're getting some Michigan distribution here in California.... bottle say "Midwest india pale ale" so i'm not sure where the IIPA title comes from?
