had a pint from the tap at the brewpub in Holland, MI.

appears a nice clear copper color, white head. nice pleasant hoppy aroma, mainly pine with a bit of citrus. enough biscuit and caramel malt to balance the hops. medium body and carbonation, drinks well.

overall - a nice IPA that is easy to drink.

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is amber, translucent, with a light tan head that sits about 1/2" thick and lingers nicely with some light lacing.

Smell is clean malt with some light biscuit and then hops, mainly pine with light citrus as it warms.

Taste is balanced mix of some light malt sweetness and mild biscuit flavors followed by solid hop bitterness, piney and citrusy with light grass.

Mouthfeel is solidly bitter with a nice sweetness in the backbone to clean it up; light cloying from the bitterness but its presented well with this beer.

Overall, this is a solid IPA, a little light on the aroma but comes through in solid flavor and mouthfeel.

A: single finger head on a hazy, amber body with crimson hues.

S: grapefruit citrus, toasted malts, and grains. weak overall however.

T: citrus, earthy and floral hops. decent amount of malts.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: fairly standard IPA. Nothing super special about this one but its still very drinkable.

Transparent orange, copper color. Thick frothy head that never goes away and coats the glass in a blanket of lacing with unrelenting stickage.

Robust and fresh pine notes in the nose.

Rye bread flavor forms the backbone. Hops come to life with a pine and soapy bitterness. Flavor is focused on the hops as expected. A little tart in the aftertaste with a medicinal character.

Medium bodied, slick feel and drying in the finish.

Pretty good. There are better examples out there, however.
