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.

Poured with almost no head, followed by slight lacing that faded quickly. Massive floral hops taste with a hint of pine. Very crisp and enjoyable.

One of the best pale ales out there if not the very best. One is first struck by the Baroque copper hue and light foamy head then the odiferous but not overwhelming scent of fresh earthy flowers and grains exquisitely balanced between sweet and acid. A masterpiece of brewing with a high hop rate that plays remarkably well off the other qualities of alcohol and malt.

Aroma: citrus. orange. slightly hoppy. slightly sweet. Appearence: deep golden. slight carbonation. white, thin head. Flavor: bright, hoppy, orange or tangerine. nice balance of hops and hops. Palate: a bit more bitey then I prefer and more of an edge than the IPAís I typically drink (Centennial, Double Trouble, Crooked Tree, even Dogfish head 90-minute). Overall impression: Very good, quality IPA - not amazing, but a solid, safe bet.

12 oz bottle - pours a slightly hazy light orange with minimal head that leaves a little bit of lacing - Citrus hops in the aroma and taste - At 7% abv the alcohol is hidden very well and this beer goes down dangerously smooth with a slight bitterness on the palate - As of 11-9-09 the commercial description here says "this beer doesnít have Bells in front of the name by explicit request from the brewer" - well if I was the brewer I would definitely put my name in front of this beer as it is delicious and easy to drink - Mega kudos to the brewer!

It pours a clear copper/honey color with a decent sized white head that leaves some good lacing. The aroma is of citrus, floral and piney hops with a little bit of bready malt with a definite grapefruit scent. The taste follows the nose, Iíd like it to be a little more complex but itís quite good the blend of citrus, floral and piney hops come in witha little bit of a grassy taste followed by bready malts. The palate is a medium bodied crisp finsih with no sign of alcohol, Overall: This is the craft beer I drink the most, itís quite tasty and available everywhere.

Appearance is hazy orange-yellow color with moderate head and little lacing. I cross-tasted vs. Hop Devil yesterday and S.N. Torpedo tonight. It has more hop aroma than either. More of citrus vs. Torpedoís rosemary character. Taste is bitter and fruity. The label is so strange for such a great beer! Itís probably my favorite IPA. Highly recommended by me!

Pours a light hazy orange/gold. Small head diminishes to a thin ring rather quickly leaving a bit of lacing. Aroma is piney and citric and very inviting. Flavour is piney, grapefruit, some pleasant sweetness. I expected a more bitter finish I suppose. But the great aroma combines with the initial flavor and smooth, rich mouthfeel to make one want another immediately.

12 ounce bottle (thanks mom!) Pours a nice amber color with a thick foamy off-white head. Leaves a good bit of lacing down the glass. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Taste is similar, a little spicy too. Smooth drinking. I could easily have several of these. Great IPA.

12 oz bottle. Pours yellow clear with big head that fades before you know it. Nice hops and somewhat rich malts (nutty flavor). Finish is simple with little to no aftertaste. Very easy drinkable beer malts does not over power this above avg beer. And sweetness is very low key(which i like)
