4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This IPA actually does remind me of times spent at the lake house in Garden Bay. It has a subtle yet well defined hoppy feel that is very enjoyable. Great cloudy light amber color with a small but suitable head. A great beer for late afternoons and/or early evenings around the campfire on a lake house beach.

Great IPA! Very flavorful. Great hop taste without being too bitter. Slightly sweet to impart a full flavor. A great beer!

Bottle. Light amber/golden orange color. Floral, citrusy (grapefruit), hoppy aroma and flavor. Bitter, but not over the top harsh. Well balanced between malts and hops. An easy to drink and enjoyable IPA!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Lives up to the hype. Floral bouquet. Really hop forward with nice malty backbone. Crisp clean get away. Delicious

Poured a slight hazy golden color, smelled some hop, pine and citrus but the taste is well balanced. A great readily available IPA.

An incredible IPA, and with the market completely flooded with them this entry from Bell’s truly stands out. On the nose you’ve got all sorts of good stuff- floral aromas abound, I sense some citrus in there too, it’s as though you’ve gone to an ornamental garden and you’re smelling the compendium of all the flowers. The taste is sweet but very balanced with the slight bitterness. This is a wonderfully carbonated IPA too so it feels great in the mouth, and the finish is super smooth. One of the best IPAs I’ve ever drank and obviously very deserving of its 100 rating on here.

I think this is probably one of my favorite pale ales i’ve had. It is not overpowering, but has great hop taste.

Unfiltered cloudy amber color. Straight-up hop aroma of a typical American IPA. Definitely an easy drinker. Good summertime IPA. I'm quite fond of the two-hearted.
