Very good IPA, but a bit overrated in my estimation.

It pours a dark golden color with a large foamy white head. There is good carbonation and a lot of lacing. The odor is strong, IPA like, citrus, grapefruit, lemon, orange, pine, resin, malty, bread like, slight honey, slight floral, a little herbal farmhouse like. The taste is less citrus, some lemon and orange, more malty, honey, herbal, grassy, some spices, pine, woods, resin, some bitterness, but refreshing.

From a single (bottled about a month ago) into a cervoise glass

A: light golden orange, with a 2 finger puffy head that leaves great lacing
S: pale bready malts, pine, melon, mellow bitterness
T: exceptionally well constructed, first some biscuit, then some prickly piney and faint citrus hops, and then a really pleasant mellow bitterness on the end that sits on my tongue. Fairly delicate flavors.
M: moderate carbonation, some nice hop oils that coat the tongue a bit, finishes moderately dry. Bitterness is pleasant and moderate (if you're a hophead).

Overall: classic. Still remember my introduction to this beer: 2006 and my (now) mother-in-law would buy it for trips up to the North Shore of Lake Superior. I couldn't believe how good it was. Since then a lot of great times and good beer has come into existence, but this is still a great beer, at least if you get it fairly fresh (...singles on mix six shelves that are approx 3 month old, are usually shadows of the real thing.) Quite often, anymore, i get a round melon note that really stands out to me and it is less than ideal...definitely not the kind of bitterness I love. Still, I find the flavor and mouthful profile to be fairly unique: I can pick it out, blind, when compared with almost any other IPA I've tasted.
