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.

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

Usually, I go for the darker orange, cloudy IPAís. 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....

12 oz. bottle and on tap. Pour is a clear amber orange with a medium head. Bursts of fresh hops and citrus! Nice malty backbone with enough sweetness to carry along the hop presence. Never overbearing or random tasting, very focused, simple, and nearly perfect. Freshness is a key here, but not as much as with some IPA. Just extremely drinkable and enjoyable.

Somewhat cloudy brass body, two-finger bone-white head. good retention. Beauuuutiful. Perfumey floral and citrus hop notes. You can smell it at armís length. Just gorgeous. Perfect level of sweetness with just enough bitterness to balance it. Amazingly smooth. The carbonation is present but unobtrusive. This has got to be one of the best American IPAs out there today. I adore this beer.

This one of the best well balanced ipa around. You can easily drink a six pack and satisfy your hop addiction and yet your taste buds aren't numb. One of Michigans finest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours gold with a white head with the signature floral hop aroma---just enough malt backbone to make this a perfectly balanced refreshing yet full flavored IPA--finish is crisp and bitter--this one defines the style

This beer pours a dark honey brown that is slightly cloudy. The head is fluffy and a dirty brown. It fell quickly to a fluffy film. Great lacing! The smell is incredibly aromatic that playfully stings my nose with huge pineapple and nectarine hops. No malt detected. Tastes of strong pine and citrus hops with a fantastic understated foundation of oat and caramel malts. Well paired flavors! The finish is a nice sour dryness that makes me want another sip in a bad way. Mouth feel is full and creamy with a medium body and a little carbonation. Nice beer, Bellís! Itís not too heavy, but delicious and easy to drink!

I have decided upon the same sentiments as Bullet2urbrain, seeing as that is what we discussed while we drank this one, as we are roommates. In a not strange life-parter way.. Just two guys who live together and enjoy craft brews. Completely platonic, I swear. But honeslty, another great Bellís brew, a great example of the style Best part about this beer, its not a porter!

Poured into a pint glass. Light amber, golden color. Great head with excellent sticky lacing all the way down the glass. Citrusy, with aromas of ruby red grapefruit, and a hint of malt sweetness in the background and maybe some cut grass. This smells very fresh and springlike. What a perfectly balanced beer. Lovely hops and fruit flavors perfectly balanced with a slightly sweet maltiness that perfectly compliments the hops. This is exceptional! Smooth, refreshing, light on the palate yet full bodies. Clean aftertaste leaves you wanting more. This is an exceptional beer, and one of the best American IPAs Iíve had. Delicious!
