Appearance: misty amber body with an off-white head and on the lacing front … not much. The little bit that there is clings to the glass.

Aroma: nice citrus nose reminding me of a citrus peel, sweet grains, sour bread; as it warms the citrus note reminds me of white grapefruit

Flavors: sweet-sour going on; pink grapefruit with a white grapefruit bite, sweet grains, sour dough bread, toasted caramel malts,

Mouthfeel: oily hops, sweet-sour, bitter notes hit the mid and finish, lingering citrus bite on the aftertaste,

To the Point: I had this ale at a local South Lyon Michigan Pub and they told me the brewery was down the road. Somehow I found my way there. Strange how that happens. I like this IPA. If you live in the area it is worth the drive – they have some other great flavors to try.

Had only on draft. Very balanced IPA. Too bad it's not a session IPA.

12oz can into a snifter

Pours slightly hazy dark golden with 2 inch fluffy head
Pine needles and grapefruit - very classic nose with mango / tropical notes in the background
Taste follows smell - lots of grapefruit and soft bitterness
Medium bodied with soft almost creamy carb - lovely feel

Overall a really solid brew - would happily pound a bunch of this

Very drinkable, well balanced with pine, grapefruit, pineapple, melon features. It's definitely a solid IPA with mild dankness.
