Interesting pale ale! Great for outdoor adventures, and very easy to find in Northern Michigan. -Joe

Reminds me of zombie dust in aroma. Resin, pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple emerge, adding with orange, lemon zest, and outreach. Really juicy fruit salad notes.

Flavor reveals a hint of grapefruit tartness, then bitter pith, which lingers into the moderately bitter, resiny finish. The toasted, bready malt doesn't lend much sweetness to counter. Muddled tropical fruit surfaces late.

If the flavoring hops were more citra-like, matching the aroma, this would be killer. Little more bitter than I prefer.

I really liked this beer, would be great summer time beer on hot day... refreshing. Almost seems like a blend of a mild IPA with APA since does have the citrus and hop characteristics to it, recommend trying.

Bottle dated 10/14/14:
This beer pours quite lovely - mild hazy orange-hued golden. Head builds up to a finger+ of fluffy white head with a vigorous pour. Lacing is fair on this beer. The nose isn't too strong in any respect, with a biscuity nature to the grain smell, and some light tropical fruit notes - papaya, hint of pineapple, a little grapefruit, and maybe some bubblegum.

To me, well categorized as an APA. The beer has a medium body to it, and the carbonation is just about right. The malt is more cracker or biscuit than sweet, which is nice. The hops balance is what I hope for in an APA, making their presence known without interrupting the overall beer. Light grassy notes are a little stronger than the grapefruit rind notes, but overall the flavors are on the dry bitter side. n some sips I get a hint of tropical fruit near the end, as well.

Quite enjoyable and I thought well balanced. This could definitely be a go to session beer if it were available near me.

Well balanced and nice hop notes, but a little hollow on the mid-palate and a bit too tannic on the finish
