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.

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. Bellís 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. Iíím 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.

(draft) This seems to be a favorite, but I just donít get it. The smell of old socks was just too much for me. I couldnít finish the glass.

Thanks to slikwily for this. Great IPA with fresh bread maltiness with a sharp finish. Hazy gold with a long lasting rocky white head. Citrus hop notes in the nose with some resin. Very nice.

This one comes trade with Indra. Two Hearted IPA is terrific. Definitely one of the top 3 Iíve had. Hoppy, citrusy, big flavor, great malt. Bellís stock in my opinion is a high riser. Started with a bad one and the rest just keep making me rethink my first impression of this brewer.
