Had a glass on tap. Solid, not as good as Hopslam. A slight corn note. Good, though.

Normal DIPA for which i really was disappointed with Bells. All of their other offerings are much further developed then this.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, peach, and grapefruit. It’s a transparent amber with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with citrus and peach. The finish has grapefruit, spicy hops, and a hint or grass. It’s medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

tectactoe (1494) - Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Tap: murky, cloudy amber with orange edges & a light khaki head that settles to a film on top. Aroma has light citric hops, mild pine & spice, & a solid undertaking of caramel malt. Taste is thinner than expected with some light leafy hops, a bit of pine, a mildly herbaceous note, light grapefruit rind, & some toasty sweet, borderline-caramel malt in the finish. Slightly bitter, alcohol well hidden at 8%+ ABV. Not bad at all.

Draft->snifter. Very hazy deep orange with small offwhite head. Strong pungent citrus hops dominates the malt base. Dense and chewy. Very good.

koleminer20 (545) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
On draft at Sidetrack. Pours a gorgeous ruby golden color with minimal head. Very hoppy and floral in the aroma. Hints of citrus and pine are prominent with a slight but of malt. Taste is bitter. Heavy in the citrus and hoppyness. It's a solid beer with a nice dry finish that I just love in an IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
