India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 Bottled from batch 7770, received from ípantanapí in a recent trade. Pours with a small head that faded quickly and aroma of pine and hop. Flavor is nice with the good crisp clean and refreshing flavor all the way down. Very easy to drink. I canít wait to try to Hopslam! Re-rated on 10/08/09. Moved up from 3.7 to a 4.0. This is an exceptional beer, and one that Iíd go to regularly if available. Extremely quaffable for a 7% offering.

On Tap at Pracna Minneapolis (I have had this beer many, many times otherwise) IPAís are my favorite style, I love the citrus, Piney aroma and flavors. This is my second favorite IPA I have ever had (Surly Furious is the only one I would prefer over this). Aroma is a nice citrus hop, extremely inviting. Color good golden orange. White head sticks around pretty well. Taste, oh the taste is a wonderful pine, citrus hoppy well balanced flavor. A little too carbonated for me, but let this one breate a little and it is perfect.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2007 I like this brew. It has a very nice hoppy taste without being overly bitter. It has a great all round finish. Competes well with Dog Fish Head 90 minute IPA. Well worth the price.

Bottle, batch 7877, bottled on 3-26-07. Pours orange with a large white frothy head that shrinks back a little bit but sticks around for the whole beer, the lacing is awsome too. Looking through the glass it is very hazy with tiny particles floating around. The aroma is all hops, a very citrusy aroma. The initial flavor is quite bitter which sticks around for a while, the duration of the flavor is long. The flavor is of citrus, mostly orange. The body is medium with a oily and creamy texture with lively carbonation. This is still one of my favorite IPAís. This was the first craft beer I had, and I fell in love with it, and craft beer. It was all down hill from there.

Tap. Small white (fully dissapating) head into clear dark gold body. Aroma was strong grapefruit and light molasses. Flavor: initially lightly sweet and finishes bitter with initialy sweetness intact. Medium bodied. Dry textured. Lively carbonation. Moderate lasting finish. I am really impressed with this IPA. I have been slightly dissapointed with other Bells brews, but this totally justifies their popularity.

A wonderful aroma of freshness and sweetness. There is a watered down flavor that hampers the beer at the end.. overall this is a good beer..

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 21, 2007
*********BEER 800***********Cloudy golden-orange body with a full, 2mm thick head of white uneven-sized bubbles. Smells of sweet hops, sugars, apricot, pear and faint peppermint. Mouth feel is thin like a cold glass of water, but never watery. Taste is cold crisp and big, full-on assault of citric hops, pine needles, caramel, transitioning to leather and biscuit dough. After is alcohol and bitter pine hops. This beer is very linear, with the taste being even and transitioning perfectly. Well-made, well-executed, well-controlled. Picked this up for a bargain at Whole Foods for $1.59/single.

Bottle. Cloudy orangy amber color with a frothy white head. Hops and oranges in the nose and more in flowery in the taste. Mouthfeel was good. One of my favorites.
