Draft at Eccentric cafe. Pours light amber. No noticable head and no lacing. Faint fruity aroma. Lithe palate. Didnít get much noteworthy out of this one. Itís a decent PA with understated bitterness, but it doesnít leave a deep memory with me.

A shared glass at the brewpub. Almost clear and golden. Little head. The flavor is full of hopsband they are really interesting. I get peach, citrus, and floral hops. I get dandelions, too. Surprisingly good. But this is zbells.

tap at the eccentric cafe. clear, golden with minimal head. aroma of pineapple, spicy hops..the pineapple is adding some delicate sweetness. flavor has some of this pineapple, and adds some nice grain and malt to the finish. a touch bitter and dry..solid

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery tasting room, listed as an experimental ale. Cloudy medium body, and the beer is lacey. Good drinkaility, the carbonation is right there. Yeasty aroma. Not what you expect from an APA. Full mouthfeel.

On tap at Bellís Eccentric Cafe last weekend. Pours a nice, clear apricot color with a fluffy white head and some good lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a heavy dosage of tropical fruits plus citrus in the background. Heavy, heavy tropical fruit notes. A bit of spice there as well. Iím guessing this used plenty of New Zealand hops. Really impressive. Flavor isnít quite as bold or pungent, but more subtle and in mix with the malt, which was ever-so-slightly bready. Other than that, light citrus and hoppy spice plus loads of tropical fruits. Light body with crisp carbonation and a fairly-dry finish. Supremely well done. Please make this a regular offering!

On tap at the the Bellís Eccentric Cafť in Kalamazoo, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear orange-golden with a small white head. The head fades slowly and leaves no lace. The nose has notes of pine, lemon and grapefruit, along with biscuity, bready malts. The flavour is well balanced, moderately sweet and slightly bitter with honey sweetness balanced against notes of citrus and pine. On the palate, it is surprisingly light in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, I was a little disappointed with this one; it is quite a subtle pale ale that lacks substantial flavour. It tastes somewhat watered down. 2011-08-14

May be one of my lowest rated bells products. All I can do is second what the other guy said. All I can really do is say I got some lemons out of it. It was really a nondescript ale. It is what it is.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe, Kalamazoo. Very light coloring, but with a hint of amber. The aroma was somewhat peppery , but hoppy. The inital slight sweetness is quickly subsumed by a musty hoppyness. This suprise mustiness is not welcome.
