COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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: MAR 6, 2005 A great everyday beer. This is the IPA I compare all others against and nothing has knocked it out of first place yet, not even my own homebrew. The hops the malt make my taste buds dance for joy. Thanks Larry

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 This beer is amazing.. you can already start to tell when you first pop the cap and smell the sweet aroma. The tase is an great blend of citrus and a slight bitter hoppy flavor. Great Beer if you drink a couple, way too sweet after a while

Hoppy hoppy hAppy... Itís what bellís pale ale wishes it could be. Malty enough to appease the general audience. those hop heads such as I will agree, this is what old world paleís should be, cold be, woud be... but this is the king of citurs/PINE/bitter

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2005 First off, great aroma. Like a budding boquet of flowers mixed with orange and grapefruit. The flavor is evener bolder. The taste is crisp - beer was bottled only one month ago. Great IPA. This is the beer that made me love beer. Comfort food if you will.

badnewsbeers (2313) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 a very cloudy yellowish orange body (great appearance); much carbonation; hoppy notes for both the aroma and flavor, with subtle malts...to the harvest ale i had at founders ales; crisp palate; a perfect hop/malt juxtaposition

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Densely clouded yellowy orange hue, moderate head formation. Well pronounced blend of grapefruit and orange in the aroma, with a mild caramel balance. Sharp spicey grapefruit palate, light caramel. Fairly light in body and fizzy. Very appetizing overall but just needed a little more body.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Quite possibly my favorite beer for general consumption. Pours nice, nice big creamy head over a orange-gold hazy liquid. Scents of grapefruit, juniper and hops match well with the first sip in which evergreen and hops flavors become more intense without overpowering maltiness. Slight warmness due to alcohol content makes this a great in winter, while crisp flavoring is nice when itís hot, too. Top notch!

maltdog (616) - Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Pours with an orangey tint, hazy with hop sediment, and a lasting ecru head. Overwhelming grapefruit nose with honey and seawater in the background. Happily, the godnotanothercascadeipa aroma belies the fresh, crisp compexity of flavors that follow: butterscotch malt, lemon zest, inviting fruitiness, and gingery peppery spice. Mellow earthy bitter aftertaste with impressions of lemon pepper. Saison-like. Somewhat oily palate is perfectly tempered by prickly carbonation.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Pours orange with a big white head that lasts awhile. Big grapefruit aroma. Well balanced malt/hop flavor with a medium hops finish. Could be a little hoppier but really enjoyed anyway. Could drink this at almost any time. Well done.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Poured a thick, bright white head that dissipated quickly. Fruity....very strong citrus notes that made for a clean finish along with the obvious hoppiness.
