Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fl oz can on January 8, 2018. Let your taste buds bloom into the season with our Michigan Cherry IPA made with 100% Traverse City cherries and a well balanced collage of fresh hops. This fruit IPA balances a subtle sweet kiss of tart cherries alongside a deliberate edge of floral bitterness; this homegrown brew will be your warm weather beer of choice.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned on March 10th 2017. Quite old but oh well.

L: Red orange that is slightly hazy, finger of white head has good retention and leaves an excellent sticky lacing.

S: Smells of cherries, almost too sweet, like marachinos but also a touch like cough syrup but not enough to make the aroma unappealing.

T: Surprisingly sweet and bitter too, lots of cherry flavor, not much hop presence but that could be to the age of this can.

F: Light, crisp, lingering sweetness.

O: obviously this isn't going to win many awards but it is tasty nonetheless and unique.

At the brewery. Pours bright red with a small head and good lacing.

Both the nose and the taste have tons of bright cherry. There is a little hop bitterness, but it's not a typical IPA.

Very good beer and easy to drink.

Clear copper body, some white lacing. Nose is floral. Flavor has a cherry element in front, a bit of sourness, and a mildly bitter tail. Feel is crisp and clean. Decent.

Pours light red. Foamy, medium, white head that lasts a while with light lacing.

Smells sweet cherry and a touch of citrus peel and earthiness underneath.

Tastes like a more cherry version of Sam Adams cherry wheat. Sweet cherry to front followed by a touch of citrus peel. Finish is dry with an earthy bitterness. Lighter medium body and creamy medium carbonation

Poured from can into snifter.

The appearance is a beautiful reddish hue from the cherries that I'm a sucker for. Not getting any hops whatsoever, so not sure what makes this an ipa. However, what I am getting is a pretty tasty, refreshing slightly tart cherry ale. One of those beers where expectations might make this beer a bit of a failure, but if you take it alone for what it is, this was an alright, enjoyable brew.

Some cherry flavor doesn't taste like an IPA has more medicinal cherry lager taste. Nothing special.

'Tis a fine beer, but sure 'tis no IPA.

This is delicious and refreshing and I'm so glad I got to taste it, but it has nothing that would lead me to call it an IPA. It's in the same boat as Perrin's blackberry "IPA" in that regard.
