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.

Yes please! Bottled ambrosia...thereís no ther way to describe it. Lovely, complex hop nose. Slightly opaque golden colour, thin lace of head. The palate is still tingling from the first sip. Very balanced hop profile with a lovely lingering after taste. Balance and satisfaction. The Bells brewers are gods.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Bottled. Pours a dark gold with a small white head. Strong citrus aromas. Nice hops and slightly bitter on the back end. This is one very well balanced brew.

Reddish orange. Aroma is pure dry hops, somewhat spicy. Pretty hoppy, but not overly bitter, perhaps balanced out by the good amount of malts in this one. Not sweet, but not dry either. Very well balanced and satisfying, even for someone not big into IPAís.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Wow, big pine aroma - tons of hops up front. Its mellow and smooth, nicely bitter and well balenced. Not watery at all. Good full flavour throughout. Nice malt backing, citrus and spice and spruce in the flavour. Well done.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy dark gold with healthy head. Floral aroma. Strong hoppy taste, but with floral background taste for balance.

Bottle.(6826) Pour a cloudy light neon golden/orange, billowy medium white head, good lace and very bubbly. Bursting with honey coated spicy hops, some light alcohol, and mild yeasty/bready notes. Very smooth and perfect balance of caramel malt presence, with citrus, spicy hops, not to sweet and not to dry. Not overly hoppy, but fresh and very pleasant hop presence. Great lingering aftertaste, to what I though initially was going to be very short flavor profile. Thin mouthfeel. High/medium drinkability. Very nice.

MrBrewski (42) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Love this beer, Pours a yellowish amber color with a large slightly off white head. Very aromatic, lots citrus grapefruit and orange with a hint of pine and perhaps a bit floral. Medium bodied with a fruity citrus hop taste and perhaps some floral overtones with excellent balance, the malt then comes in and the finish is slightly sweet mixed with the complex hops. Texture is creamy with a touch of hop resin. This beer just puts a smile on my face and makes me feel good. Excellent! re-rated on 10/30 as the more I drink this nectur the more I like it.

Pours a yellowish copper gold color with a fading white head. Smells like a pine forrest mixed in with flowers. Tastes like your classic west coast IPA. Citrusy,very hoppy with that pine needle bite to it. Excellent.

lamas (1443) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle. Batch ID #7025. Packaged on: August 23, 2005. A hazy, pale orange pour with a thin off-white head. One of the more floral aromas Iíve ever smelled. Like fresh-cut flowers! Lots of citrusy hops, pine needles, sap and scented soaps. Solidly medium-bodied. The taste is also quite floral with a good balance of citrusy hops and malts. Almost herbal. Finish is a bit short with no real lingering bitterness. Unique taste. Great beer.
