In this beer blog, we are going to get into a brewery I have been eye balling every time I go back to visit in Michigan. Tri-City Brewing Company is the brewery being featured in this beer post and the beer is called Charity Island India Pale Ale. This Bay City brewery opened its doors in 2007 by Kevin Peil and a few friends. There is not too much information on this young brewery. Let us get into beer.
It has cloudy copper color with a constant white head on the brew. The carbonation is heavy so be careful pouring the beer in the glass. The smell is fade citrus to this India Pale Ale. The taste has a carbonated citrus without an aftertaste. It is drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Charity Island IPA has a bold and assertive hoppy characteristic. Brewed with 100% malted barley, the five hop additions give an aroma with a rich citrus, floral, and resinous bouquet. The crisp flavor is in perfect harmony with the malt backbone with a refreshing, clean, and dry finish.

In closing, I enjoyed drinking this beer. I love the citrus and it has enough of a malty backbone and balance. There is a nice crisp and dry finish that I picked up when I was drinking this beer. This is a great beer. I will be enjoying some pints when I go back to Michigan. If you live in the Michigan area, I recommend you trying this beer out. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
