The beer that got me into Bells. Incredible foamy head, outstanding balance and a unique flavor that separates it from the pack. A must try for anyone who likes IPAís. When I head to northern minnesota itís the only descent non-import available, and i donít mind.

One of my favorite IPAís. Smells like a well balanced IPA should, citrus and pine. Itís really smooth, without an overpowering bitterness at any point. If youíre a fan of IPAís you need to try this.

Poured into Spieglau IPA glass. Orangish-copper with a beige foamy and creamy head.
Deep grapefruit citrus aromas lead the charge with resiny back notes.
Crisp and clean bitterness on the palate with a light-medium body and medium to high carbonation.
Good but IMO doesn't hold up to some of the ratings I've seen.

Tap pour at Geoffreys. Nice pour of clear amber with decent white head. Sweetly scented with citrus dominating. Taste is more pineapple than grapefruit with hints of hops. Aftertaste bitterness quickly subsides. Good IPA.

Great IPA, nice hoppy aroma. Poured real well, head and lacing excellent.Dry hoppy flavor, with a little citrus ? Nice light orange coloring slightly cloudly. When the bottling is on itís hard to beat this beer.

Nice lighter IPA (i consider this more of a good pale ale). Reviewing this as a hoppy pale ale (not an IPA), I like the dryness of this beer and how that helps highlight the citric/floral notes of the hops in the beer. Iíve had the beer in bottle and on tap and prefer the tap as the cleaness and crisp hops come through better. This is a very nice pale ale!
Having brewed this beer as a homebrewer, I think it would improve with alittle more variety of hops (though love cents).

Mini-keg. Slightly cloudy copper pour, big foamy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grassy floral hops. Flavor is bitter floral hops with hints of citrus.

Fantastic head, mindblowing aroma, and an absolutely fantastic body. The hop and malt balance is perfect for this IPA. I daresay, one of the best IPAs iíve ever had the chance to taste.

Ive never given a beer a perfect score on any category. This beer however looked beautiful for a pale. Huge, I mean huge, head with an orange body. Nice full ale taste. Overall a great beer.
