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.

12 oz bottle. Clear golden color and a fine head. The aroma is medium to high hops. The centennial throughout is quite nice. It is fairly bitter but there are flavor and aroma hops to round it out nicely. The flavor leaves you with a touch of lime. Great beer.

Aroma is a blend of malt and hops, cloudy apricot, and a finger of white foam. Very hoppy taste at first, with malt coming in after. Well balanced, nicely bitter. Lovely! Thank joey_capps.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Picked up this beer on a trade in Coventry last weekend (where a song about my ratebeer user name was played). Huge sticky head atop a murky orange/brown body. Sweet orange aroma. Great citrus hop flavor with a nice lemon taste. A most excellant ipa.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 Sampled this beer at the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison WI. Even though my scores on this are accurate and well researched, ?Da Man? wants me to say more about the beer, so I will. I love Bell’s, and this is one of the better IPA’s I’ve had in a long time. A very nice beer.

What goodness from such an unassuming trout bottle! Aroma of citrus (lemon, grapefruit and HUGE orange). Appears hazy, and almost murky dark gold/light orange. The flavor is so rich and full, with orange and even some gin in the taste. The only flaw is a little alcohol coming thru (a shame at 6%). Would make the perfect transition beer for those needing an intiation into american craft beer. This is Dreadnaught’s not-so-distant smaller cousin.

Draft. Bright, hazy gold. Off-white head w/ fine bead & excellent lace. Robust, very fresh aroma of citrus & pine w/ lovely notes of caramel & vanilla. Full-bodied. Nice & sticky. Flavour is complex, very hoppy & bitter w/ long lingering finish. Still the malt is there to support. Excellent beer.

Hazy golden color. Small head. Aroma was the familiar hoppy IPA smell that one usually gets. Reminds me of the Dogfish 90 minute. Not painfully hoppy, which in my opinion is a plus. Perhaps one of the best IPAs that I have ever had (tho I?ve only had a handful-ha!) My introduciton to Bells beers. I am impressed and I will return for more.

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.
