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.

This is one damn fine IPA, the centennial hops just jump right out at you. Quite a bit of yeast on the nose, I wonder if bottle was okay? Fruity, citrusy, even a discernable mango note. nice clean finish in the mouthfeel, some of the hop monsters leave you begging for saliva.

Thick, off-white head, golden color. Aroma is citrus, mostly of lemon and/or grapefruit. Extremely hoppy with a bitter aftertaste. Very tasty.

Bottle. IPAs are not my favorite style, but this is one hell of a beer. Pours a light amber with a nice creamy head. Aroma is definitely pine. Taste of citrus and wonderful hop bitterness. Full bodied and well balanced. Bells really knows what they are doing.

Always a treat. Itís golden orange color is very close to what I consider perfect for an IPA. Itís got that undoubtable sweet citrus smell of Centennial. And man, what a well-balanced beer. From start to finish, itís never overwhelming in any direction. Just smooth and clean.

Spicy aroma with a bit of citrus. Nice bold and earnest hop flavor that finishes with pine and spice. Pairs well with a solo backpacking/fishing trip in the U.P.

Just a solid IPA. Not flashy, but extremely well done. About as balanced as a beer can be

Of course, world class IPA albeit a mild (smooth) one. In thinking about this beer, I recommend to those who would like the "smooth" version of a great IPA. There are only a handful go great IPAís IMO and several commercially agreeable others. This is also a world class IPA and you cannot go wrong with this one.
