2012 vintage. 12 oz. bottle poured into a tall tulip.

A: Pours a deep, hazy grapefruit orange hue. 2 full fingers of creamy, off-white head sit atop the body. Outstanding head retention, and tons of lacing.

S: Massive grapefruit and orange notes. Some caramel notes in there as well from the malts. This smells great.

T: Big citrus hop flavor with some caramel maltiness mixed in. I taste a ton of orange on the finish. The heavy orange flavor really sets this apart and is one of my favorite things about this beer.

M: Creamy and highly carbonated. There is a bit of a slickness, and while the hops linger, it seems to be missing an oiliness or stickiness that I like in DIPA's.

O: This is another solid offering from Shorts, and a really good DIPA. However, just from the state of Michigan, there are many more that I would likely take over this one. If Short's released this as a seasonal at the right time, I would buy it. I would not, however, take it over Hopslam, The Oracle, Double Trouble, Double Crooked Tree, or even Shorts own The Liberator if they were in direct competition. Being a one time thing, though, any hop-head should definitely give this a try.

Small bottle from Steve. Pours light grapefruit body with generous retained head. Mild hop aroma. A good drinkable bitterness, high IBU but not a palate shredder, fuller mouthfeel. Surprised at the high level of alcohol, it was well hid. Bottled in April, received in May. Good 1.5X IPA.

I got a bottle of this from the hoppy holiday mixed 12pck from Meijer's. It poured a clear copper with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had tangerine hint mixed with spruce tip. The taste was nicely balanced between malt pine resin hop. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

The color is a translucent amber-orange with a finger of head. Smells of citrus and floral hop tones. I smell some caramel and malt as well. Maybe even some chocolate? Mainly a floral hop experience when tasted, but the citrus doesn't lack. The malty backbone is well-represented, and supports the heavy hop presence. It's bitter, and it leaves the mouth dry as expected. No aftertaste. Just a nice hop experience through and through. Mouthfeel is somewhat on the heavy side, and it's well-carbonated. Overall, I bought a case at the Anniversary party and I'm looking forward in seeing how it plays out in the future. I'm thinking this won't be a one time brew and they'll brew this again. We're lucky to live in Michigan with not only great beer, but some of the best DIPA's in the country. Hopheads-don't miss out on this one.

Reviewing the Aww Jeah from Short's Brewing Company out of Bellaire, Michigan.

Score: 90

Bottle code "1193C21658." Served in a generic snifter glass and enjoyed on 08/19/13.

Appearance: Pours an orange copper with a half finger of off-white head that settles to a thin ring around the glass. Good lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Caramel malt, honey and fruity/grassy hops. A little spiciness too. As it warms, some tropical citrus comes through, but it is not juicy-fresh. 4/5

Taste: Bready malt, caramel malt, grapefruit, and floral hop flavor. Bitter grassiness towards the finish with a residual bitterness that lingers nicely. The hoppiness has a little dirty spiciness to it too, but this character is not very prominent. As this beer warms and layers, it becomes palate wreckingly bitter/hoppy. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Very light in body for an imperial IPA, low carbonation. The bitterness really sits and layers on the tongue, slightly singeing while the brew sits on the palate. 4/5

Overall: A total hop bomb palate killer. Nothing special, but well done. Cheers.

Cost: $15 for a six pack.
