Bells comes through again with a high grav hoppy beer that manages to be balanced and not too sweet. Very crisp and flavorful with strong orange, grapefruit, and tropical notes and a light bitter orange and grass finish.

Draft at the quik shop. This beer is a tad underrated in my opinion. Mainly because I dont normally enjoy double ipa’s but I like this quite a bit. So...everyone else must be off! I digress. Pours a hazy amber with a small off white head, sticky lace. Nose is quite citrusy, some caramel malt balance, light tropical fruits. Flavor mimics aroma, really well balanced double ipa. Much better than previous experiences with this beer. Keg was almost exactly 1 month old. Nice work, Bells.

Very rich citrusy hops. Blends very well into the malt backbone. Satisfying but still hop driven.

On tap at Whole Foods Market – Chandler. Mellow aroma of pine, pineapple and light hay. Pours clear copper. Delicious syrupy taste of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) and citrus (sweet orange) with only moderate bitterness. A dry malty tone emerges late. A very smooth DIPA.

Draft. Hazy gold pour with a thick off-white cap that leaves a foamy wall of lace behind. Nose involves herbal and citric hop notes with lightly toasted malt. Fairly sweet, seriously bitter. Light to medium body, very oily, tannic and drying, with a long toasty finish. Very nice brew that I’m glad I finally tried.

A nice double IPA. Loads of pine on the aroma. Taste is not overpowering. Kind of medicinal bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite nice.

Wow this is one hoppy beer. Lots of pine and body odor in this one. Both in the aroma and flavor. Long lasting hoppy finish. Very good.
