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.

bottle. one of the spoils from a recent midwest adventure. pours a slightly hazy almost orange yellow. clumpy fat white head with specks in it. leaves tendrils of foam floating deep within the glass. aroma reminds me of the candy lick-em-ade powder i used to eat as a kid, very sweet take on the standard ipa aroma that alerts you that some thing new is afoot. flavor is a smooth balanced hoppy greatness. mouthfeel of an orange sherbert freeze with bitterness that is phenomenal. nice citrus flavor that is strong but not too overpowering. not for the weeak or those who don’t appreciate a good IPA.

Bottle. Nose is a very piney hop. Hazy gold body with a one finger foamy head. You can smell the hops from a meter away. Sweeter than most IPA’s. The hops are so well rounded words escape me. Perfectly hopped. Not too powerful, not too light. Under the hops is a citrusy sweetness that puts this beer over the top. This is one of the best IPA’s I have ever had the pleasure of tasting.

Wow! Delicious IPA. Beautiful Hop Aroma destinguishable from 10 feet away. Poured a Dirty Golden yellow with a fast disapating head. A gorgues Blend of subtle malts and Intense Hop additions has moved this to the Top of my list. Well Done!

Thanks again to TAR for this brew, hooking me up with another solid IPA! This beer poured a yellow and slightly orange color with a thick soapy white head which diminished rather quickly. The aroma was of floral hops, pines, caramel, syrupy nectary thickness, apricots and citrus. The taste is heavy nectar with piney bitterness in the finish. The finish is slightly dry and malty leaving a nice bit of lacing on my glass. This is a very solid IPA.

REAL good IPA. Bell’s got it really right on this one. Nice lingery head and lacing. Smooth with just the right IPA hop blast. Awesome aroma. Very citrusy and spicy. Just added to my top 10 list.

Gold in colour. Large, fluffy head. Predominately hoppy aroma. High alcohol, but smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer.

Good, I mean really good IPA. I’’m starting to think that the Midwest has a better handle on IPAs than the West Coast...maybe the tide is shifting? Anyway, it pours a nice orange color with a medium white head. Aroma is grapefruit but with enough malt to back it up. Flavor is wonderfully sweet and bitter. Smooth body. One of the better "session" IPAs out there, IMHO.

Hazy orange color with big white head. Aroma is dominated by citrisy hops. The tatse is too, but there is enough malt to back it up. Bitter and citrisy all the way through. Makes me want more. A very enjoyable beer.

Good thick head...smells like a bitter. Taste reminds me of cheap gin and sweet and sour sauce. I expected more. Extremely bitter and unsatisfying aftertaste. Crisp and dry ale with a lame finish. Boo.

Gorgeous hop aroma, with citrus and pine. Nice mouthfeel with bitter hop finish balanced nicely. Ton’s of flavor and very refreshing. One Awesome Beer!!!
