What a perfectly balanced APA!!! This beer has one of the best mouth feels I have ever experienced in an IPA/APA. Not too bitter, but not too malty either. Incredible that this is my first time trying it when it's in every store I frequent. This will become a frequent resident in my fridge rotation. If you get the opportunity, go for it with this awesome brew!

Doesn’t get any better then this! Hands down my go to IPA when I’m lucky enough to find it in Denver or friends bring it back from the Midwest. Don’t hesitate if you can find it, you can’t go wrong. Cheers.

If there's a better domestic ale out there, I'd love to try it. The mouthfeel and flavor of this beer are simply superb. Looks great in the glass, and the alcohol percentage is right where it should be for a pale ale. I put together a mixed six-pack and only snagged two. Next time it'll be six!

A famous West Michigan IPA for good reason - truly a solid, reliable, always-delicious IPA. Saw it on tap one day and finally decided to try it. Nice deep golden color, medium thick head, nice notes of hoppiness, fruit and pine. Only very light bitterness throughout. Smooth mouthfeel and nice lingering aftertaste of faint hops. A pleasure to sip and savor.

Enjoyed bottle from Bell’s store in Kalamazoo MI. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with one finger of white head. Aroma of pine, though as head dissipates tropical fruit/pineapple/mango/grapefruit. Taste is a clean caramel malt with perfect bitterness of grapefruit and citrus rind. Extremely well balanced, smooth mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Mild lingering bitterness. Forced to I could drink this wonderful IPA every day.
