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

from a growler into a sierra Nevada spiegelau glass.

Appearance- pours a transparent copper color with a frothy white head. leaves a good amount of lacing.

Aroma- some caramel malt with some citrus hop action. nothing crazy but solid. heavy pineapple scent at first.

Taste- dry bready caramel taste with some slight pineapple and citrusy hop notes. alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel- solid medium bodied. good carbonation.

Drinkability- on beer number four and easily going to kill the growler.

Overall- not being a pineapple/ tropical fruit/ hipster hop fan I was alil worried when I first smelled this beer from the pineapple notes coming from it but after a couple it started to diminish and now I get a nice citrusy cascade hop action going on. nothing out of this world but pretty solid. a Michigan ipa that is solid with two hearted, centennial, and crooked tree.

Solid IPA. Served on tap in a pint glass. Came to me with a half finger if white, solid foam that left a ring around the glass. Color is golden and hazy. Aroma and taste track closely: pine up front and grapefruit zest to follow. Taste also had some solid caramel malt backbone that held up well, and feel was semi-full, oily.
