Bought this at my local Giant Eagle grocery. I like to drink local when I can, and especially during Covid quarantine.

Not my favorite of this style: not as hazy or hoppy or juicy, but a damn fine beer. On the plus side, I could drink several of these, unlike their more popular NE IPA couisins. Paired well with grilled walleye.

Description: Light, pale orange color and super hazy as befits the style. Good head retention. Smell is floral, melon and fruity. Well balanced without much bitterness. Taste follows the nose with hits of fruit and floral, good balance and only a small dose of bitterness on the finish. Body is medium with medium to high carbonation – maybe even a little too much carbonation.

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely drink it again) Flavorful and balances, this is an all-around solid IPA and a good representation of the style. That it comes from such a new brewery is even more impressive, as I’ve had many IPAs from more established brewers that didn’t measure up to this. Hopefully these early beers are just a sign of more good things to come!

I'm trying this at the brewery. It poured a clear golden with very....very little white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had bold tropical fruit peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with juicy tropical fruit flavor. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.
