In this beer blog, we are going to get into Grand Circus IPA from Atwater Brewery. Atwater Brewery was founded in 1997 by the Detroit River. City of Detroit has a rich history like most major cities in the United States in brewing. There brew house was imported in from Germany. They brew several different beer styles. Let us get into the beer.
It has a clear dark golden with constant small bubbles and a constant white head on this IPA. The smell is earthy with some piney notes. The taste of this medium body is earthy and piney notes with a dry hop aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.atwaterbeer.com):

Closing, Atwater Brewery is a few breweries located right in the City of Detroit. I give them a ton of credit for where they are located in the city. I have to say this about this brew and brewery. They did a semi good job to bad job on this brew. I am a huge hop head and I was pretty disappointed on this IPA. I just feel there is not enough malty backbone. I am not a fan of the hops they are using in it. I love their packaging and their Java Vanilla Porter. I have to say just because I do not like this brew. It does not mean you will not like this beer. I am going to stop by their brewpub here soon since moving back to Michigan. Please, go try this beer and let me know what you think of it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
