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: APR 30, 2006 Very hoppy, but very well balanced. citrusy with a dry finish. Bells makes great beer and this is easily one of the best they make. This has become my favorite IPA hands down

Tried this beer as a rec from Bon. Not disappointed in the least! Huge, sharp, hoppy nose that declares it’s IPA tag from the first pour. Very full taste fills up your mouth with every sip. Suprisingly potent, a six pack will get you to where you need to be.

Bottled, thanks heemer77. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized beigeish head. Aroma is caramel, fruits and hops, enormous nose! Flavour is pleasant and smooth fruity hops with also wheat, a bit yeast and caramel. Very pleasant IPA, one of the best so far. Creamy smooth palate.

TBone (13707) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 16, 2006
Hazy orange, good steady creamy white head, some lace. Fabulous citrus and pinewood hoppy aroma. Good malty backed with lemony hops. Fruity finish, a bit yeast also in the flavor. I liked aroma more than flavor.

A delicious IPA with heavy citrus and hop notes. Truly one of the best (if not the best) IPA’s i’ve had. Very strong hops, but not overpowering, with a a tasty citrus flavor. Highly recommended.

Nice Orange pour with a huge head. Nice hops in this one.... Citrus is nice in this one, aftertaste sits well on the tongue. A good beer to drink after doing my taxes! thanks to Duane for this Gem!

Pours an amber-orange hue with a tight, creamy and durable white head. Had one of the freshest hop aromas of any beer I’ve ever sampled. As a homebrewer it reminded me of the burst of hop aroma when you first open a vacuum sealed bag of freshly harvested hop flowers. Lots of lemony/orange citrus notes in the aroma. Palate was smooth and light. Flavors were nicely balanced between the lightly toasted malts and the citrusy hops. Found the finish to be a bit tame and quick, but overall a well made, solid American IPA.

bgburdman9 (859) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Pours and orangish copper with a white head. Had floral and citrus aromas. The flavor was very hoppy and citrusy but did not leave a bitter aftertaste which was nice. Was a great IPA.

pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pours amber with a fluffy white head that has good lacing. The aroma is very hoppy. The flavor is very well balanced with hops, but not overbearing and a citrus taste. This is a very good beer.

linkolnlogg (94) - your home, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Wonderful floral hop aroma. Pours out with a nice bubbly and slighly lacy head... slight haze to the fine deep gold colour. The flavor is heavily hopped (as would be expected of an IPA), sweet mild fruity tones, very inviting for the next taste. A hair bit on the bitter side for the aftertaste but overall an excellent IPA..
