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.

Pours cloudy blonde, with an orangish haze and good large head. Bitter, hoppy, floral aroma. Bitter and floral flavors, with some slight citrus. Sort of dry finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 After drinking a pint of Evan Williams after a tough Friday at work (which can kill anybody’s tastebuds).. upon further inspection My score still stands.

On Tap - The Big Hunt, DC. Good IPA. Pours a nice golden color - fruity taste - almost like fruity pebbles. Nice finish, didn’t taste very bitter to me, but I had a few before. Still a nice IPA, would rather have a Stone.

May 25. Bottle. pours a hazy gold and orange color. Nice head and plenty of lacing. Great hop aroma and taste. really good IPA. One of the best I have had. Not much of a hop head. But this is exceptional. Enjoy!!!!

The old standby...Piney hop aroma, with a great balance of pine/citrus hops and malt backbone.

Dark gold color, lively carbonation, white dissipating head. We’ve all had IPAs with a much livelier aroma than this, but not many are this drinkable. Grapefruit and not much else on the aroma. But still, great flavor, not too bitter but still very nice and crisp. I’m loving it.

Got this bottled at RFD in D.C. Wow! This is an amazing brew. Hoppy chewy smell. Looks light golden and delicious, with a perfect head. The taste... oh wow, the taste. Perfect balance is the first thing that comes to mind. Decent malt presence is blended so smoothly with the perfect balance of hops. No lingering bitterness to ruin it. The beer finishes much smoother than most IPAs... excellent.

Wow. This is a great IPA. Orange mid-dark color. Amber and red tint and a nice white head. As soon as I poured this beer I was overcome by the hop aroma and then later the hop flavor. Floral hops characterize this beer as the dominating gustatory trait but there is so much more. Mid-range bitterness brought out some tasty pine notes. Great IPA and really awesome bottle art.

Usually, I go for the darker orange, cloudy IPA’s. This one has a lighter color, but is brewed by Bells, so what the hell, huh!?! Good citrus/nutty flavor, but leaves me wanting for some reason....

Gorgeous beer to pour, great hop flavor. And those are fish on the bottle--it took me a while to figure that one out.
