You can tell they use the hops in this beer. You really have to be ready when you take the first sip of this beer. This is my favorite IPA but I am sure that has something to do with the fact that my heart is with the Upper Peninsula. Make sure you take the time to pour this beer into a glass because it is good looking and really brings a lot to the beer.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Very hoppy, but very well balanced. citrusy with a dry finish. Bells makes great beer and this is easily one of the best they make. This has become my favorite IPA hands down

Light golden hoppie stout. Light hoppie scent. This beer was a light ale color with a very bitter aftertaste.

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 Bellís truly stands out. On the nose youíve got all sorts of good stuff- floral aromas abound, I sense some citrus in there too, itís as though youíve gone to an ornamental garden and youíre 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 Iíve ever drank and obviously very deserving of its 100 rating on here.
