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.

Good beer. Iíve had on tap and in bottle. It may have been the night, but I liked the tap better. Beer is very hoppy, and maybe a little too citrusy, but I liked it just the same. I think I like DFH 90 minute IPA a little better, but very similar beers.

Poured a golden orange color with a very thin head. Head retention was minimal and patchy. Aroma was not as strong as expected but good hints of citrus were present. Flavor was commanding with a great strong hoppy finish. Clean, keeps you wanting more...

I’m fortunate that I can get this beer here in Florida. This beer is a light amber color with an excellent head that leaves plenty of lace. The taste is well balanced with cake like pale malts underneath the strong hop flavors. The hops are very fresh tasting and floral and fruity in the best way. The mouth feel is medium thick and almost perfect for an IPA. A very enjoyable beer that is in my refrigerator most of the time.

Cascade hits nose quick, complex texture allows hops to break in to every bit of rich but light malt palate. the bitterness holds long, head is well laced and fizz distributed widely on the palate. As it warms in the glass, more fruitty details come forth. Purity of malt, base bitter and finish taste makes this a fine example; exceptional and obtainable.

A very strong beer from Bellís. One of my favorites of this style. Iím fortunate to live near Chicago and have it readily available. If you are in the area it is a must try.

Hands down, a must try IPA if you havenít or if youíre just getting started in craft. This is the beer that launched me into craft beers and has been my go to IPA for 10 years.

Iíve never had a Bellís I didnít like, except the Oarsman, which was still okay, so lets see: -Pours light amber dark yellow traditional pils color with a two finger white head that does not seem to be going anywhere. Lacing sticks around throughout. Aroma is citrus hops and flower bouquet with a faint fishy something going on. Medium in the mouth with a heavy strange floral hop, unique kind of IPA approach. Atypical in the fact that itís hitting you with some hop that is not common, and reminds me of tangy fruit like grapefruit but not, a flowery feel like the tang of a dandelion stem, but not. Hard to peg. Flowers and fruit. Little oily in the finish, resolving to hops on the tip and alcohol in the back. I like it. I like Bellís. Bravo, good sirs.

Wow, one of the best IPAís Iíve had in a long time. Will definitely be picking more of this up. hoppy with a very mild bitterness, some citrus, big taste but easy going down. A very smooth easy to drink IPA.

Standard head with minimum lacing. Tropical fruit hop nose. Very balanced malt and hops, immensely drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
