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.

This is a yellow orange, almost golden colored beer with a small white head. It smelled like fresh juicy oranges with a lot of hops and some floral notes. In the flavor there is some grapefruit and sweetness, along with the big hops and malt, and its such a clean and crisp yet full and well balanced flavor that its hard to say anything bad about this beer.

On draught, a standard orange yellow with a decent head, maybe a slight haze, but nothing particularly promising looking. On the other hand, incredible promise in that smell. A sweet sticky hop jamboree alongside a big beefy malt bonanza. Citrus, dominated by tangerine and grapefruit, and huge well rounded malt. The mouthfeel is smooth, thereís great stickiness, and perfectly appropriate CO2 levels. The taste is truly exceptional. Everything in the aroma is here in the taste (though perhaps not the tangerine). Thereís big grapefruit and sticky piney hops over a rich and smooth malt backbone. Tonight this beer was particularly fresh and juicy, though I donít think this could ever get lower than a 4.0 from me (or anyone in their right mind). Really something special, I love this beer.

Nice citrus flavors up front. Pours a deep orange color with big foamy white head. Malty, piney, wood aromas. Slightly sweet with a good balance between the malt and hops.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 An amazing beer. Pours with a long lingering off white head. A hazy orange color with amazing fresh taste, great hops but extremely well balanced, a bit tiny bit of sweetness to match the hops. Lots of citrus tones in this one, which helps my scoring. This is a serious extremely complex beer, and I think might be my all-time favorite. Incredible.

12oz bottle: bottle conditioned, as far as i can tell from the sedimentation at the bottom-and the flavor to match. lots of malt and lots of hops, and i mean lots of hops. good though, seems like more than 6% in strength, but just a very well brewed beer. Now Iíll have to try Bells other brews while Iím out here..

Golden color, strong floral aroma. A little malty, with a hoppy finish. I am not always a big fan of IPAs, but really enjoy this beer. A personal favorite.

Bottled. Thanks to BeerandBlues2 and Ernest for sharing. Beer is a hazy medium copper with a large, white, frothy, mostly lasting head. Nice wings of lacing on the sides of the snifter. First impression on the nose is that of balance and woodsyness. The aroma is malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, cookie and caramel; Hoppy with a balanced portfolio of moderately-weighty grapefruit, herb, straw, resin/pine and cedar, trace of marigold flower; Yeasty with a light note of dough, trace of sharp cheese; Miscellaneous notes of powdered ginger, perhaps a trace of white pepper and tropical fruit. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic with a long, moderately acidic, moderately sweet, lightly bitter/grippy finish. The body is medium, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is lively. Neat-o

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2016 Bottle (Aug 30, 2016 bottling). Head is initially average sized to large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin, orange), with a light note of dried mango. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Probably the freshest bottle Iíve had, and not surprisingly also the most resinous smelling bottle too. A few more months of age will likely help, given that itís bottle conditioned...hopefully soften the flavor balance a bit, ease back on the resin, and bring out more ester nuances.

Hazy golden color with a large white head. Huge floral aroma with some nice pine notes. Pine/citrus more noticeable in the flavor with a valiant attempt by the malt to add some balance. Very flavorful and drinkable ale.
