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.

Bottle pour into Goblet. Head is not Aroma is deliciously hoppy and citrusy. Color is a light cloudy amber. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Carbonation is not visible but the feel of it on the tongue is slick and lively. The long finish doesn’t really turn, it just carries through clean true to the taste until finally after a few minutes you’re left with slight bitters.

Nose is faint. Taste strongly of grapefruit but balanced very well by malt with some sweetness reminiscent of honey or apricots. Alternately noticeably tastes like pineapple. Very nice creamy mouth feel.

Ar- stunning floral aroma with hints of perfume and citrus Ap- clear Amber with a string white head Fl- extremely well balanced, hint of malt sweetness is quickly joined by earthy, floral, and hints of citrus and bitterness. Finished dog smooth and dry. Mf- med-full bodied, soft, round, slight carbonation, Ov- such a great beer. A beer can be balanced and a lot are but when a beer really shines is when the components being balanced are standouts by themselves. This is what you get here. I'd like a tad more carbonation on the mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep yellow, slightly orange color with a good head. Earthy, piney aroma. Has a strong citrusy hop bite with a good malt backbone. Mouthfeel is a little oily, which coats the tongue with a lingering bitterness. A classic IPA and a good standby, but not completely worth the price and hype. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark gold and foggy with a big tenacious off white head. Smells like pine and citrus...Delightful! Taste is big hops with some lemon and pine again. What a nice IPA!

llafoe (40) - Greenwood, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2007
12 oz bottle. Batch #7795. Pours a light gold with a half-finger off-white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, hops and pine. Taste is sweet with a carbonated bitter pine grapefruit finish. Light and smooth. Very nice.

TyRip (40) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Large head. Aroma is rich with spice and hops, but you can tell it is also just slightly thin/watery. A little too light for my taste in the finish, just a little too much water, a touch too long of a finish, especially with this much hop bitter at the end. I just think if it has that much in the way of hops, the finish should be a little quicker/dryer. Overall a good beer, but I was just a little disappointed in the aroma/finish department.

FleeVT (40) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. A dull and hazy amber beer with an off-white head that sticks around. A great hop and orange rind on the nose. The hops dominate and leave little room for the faint bread malt lurking. Bell’s nailed the style with this one. Citrus and hops again. Slight malts towards the finish. Hop oils remain through the finish and into the aftertaste. This is a bitter one but inline with the style. Medium body and carbonation, this one goes down fine. It’s loaded with hops and bitter. A thirst quencher and probably a good one. Good for several rounds but not all night.

Fruity aroma with a golden pour. Taste has strong hints of american malts and is distinctly centennial. Hoppy mouthfeel that doesn’t berate the palate, very sweet citrus-floral flavor.

RealPoser (40) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Pours golden amber, decent head... solid lacing. Ok hop presence with, citrus notes and a piney bite. Little if any malt backbone. I love bells and love IPAs, but am confused with the unmitigated lovefest with this brew. A solid american IPA for sure.... but not on par with the CCB Jai Lais and Alesmiths of the world.
