From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received in trade from a non-BA member. Sampled on July 29, 2014.

It pours yellow to golden amber with a lingering off-white head.

The aroma has a slight toasted biscuit character but there is a sort of lemon zest, grassy hop sensation.

The body is medium.

The taste begins with a quick breaded malt character but swiftly turns into a floral, lemony hop finish. It tasted better as it warmed.

This pours out a bright amber color with a dense half-inch head of foam. Aroma offers both strong hops (floral, grassy) and good malt (light caramel) notes. Good flavor: plenty of bitterness, but also not afraid to show a complex malt side, caramel, a little nuttiness, a very faint roast perhaps? The yeast yields a touch of fruitiness as well. Finish is well-attenuated but not as bracingly dry as many IPAs. It is definitely a strong, heady beer as well.

Very good IPA.

Great Lakes Commodore Perry IPA has a fairly thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and a good amount of lace curtain left behind on the glass. The aroma is of semi-sweet white bread, some tart fruit, hop resin, and subdued barley. Taste is of all that, with a pronounced, yet not harsh, straight-forward hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Great Lakes Commodore Perry IPA finishes on the dry side and decently drinkable.
