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. I’ve 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.

From the bottle. Further evidence why I do not possess much appreciation for hoppy IPAs. This is one strong IPA with a powerful floral odor and sharp finish.

Great aroma. HIgh ABV, which is nice. Plus, the sticker talks about Hemingwayesque trips to the U.P. Can’t beat it.

Among the best IPA’s I’ve had. Very well balanced, not too hoppy. This is a beer that both hop-heads, and non hop-heads can enjoy.

A very strong beer from Bell’s. One of my favorites of this style. I’m 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 haven’t or if you’re 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.
