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.

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a hazy copper color with a very tall head that has great retention and leaves behind plenty of lacing. Smell is very strong of grapefruit and pine, an explosion of hops in the foreground with sweet caramel malt in the background. Taste is sweet and biscuity, balanced with plenty of dry floral hops which all comes together for a bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp, even a bit soft and creamy. Overall, an excellent IPA that is on the medium side in terms of hop intensity, always a welcome addition to the fridge.

My first IPA, and frankly, I was expecting more. Donít get me wrong, this was a very drinkable beer. I just expected more hop bitterness. Light copper-colored with a rich, thick head. Hazy in appearance with a few floaties in there. The aroma...oh the aroma. Smells like fresh hops in the christmas tree. Very full mouthfeel with that hop aroma taste, but little bitterness. Finishes smooth, with some of that hoppy taste staying behind.I do very much like this beer, but I expected more bitterness, like their amber ale, only lighter.

Hops are right there from the beginning. Tried in Northern Lower Michigan. Quickly became favorite of the week. Clear color and nice head. Finishes bitter. Limited availability, not sold everywhere that Bellís other products are available, well worth looking for.

On tap at Mad Mex. Golden-orange pour with tight off-white head. Resinous and orange hop aroma. Great hop bitterness balanced perfectly by malt. Clean bitter finish that keeps it drinkable. Perfect mouthfeel - not too thick, not too thin with nice carbonation. Great beer.

Piney, citrusy, tropical fruit from the centennial hops. Super drinkable. Nicely balanced IPA

Not that impressed sadly...Iíve bought a six pack of this stuff and it was..eh. Then I bought the mini or pony keg, twice and it was..eh. Now prior to these last three purchases of THA Iíve had great pleasure drinking this beer, in fact it was my first beer where I was told what kind of beer I was drinking and not just one of the big three breweries. The beer I currently drink is ok. I wouldnít turn it down if the other alternatives were the MCB trio, but I canít but feel duped.."I bought this again?"

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 Pours a golden amber, thick white head. Pine and citrus to the nose. Feels like a hop and grapefruit bite on the tongue. No bready smell or taste like the previous bottle. Grabs my mouth a bit more than the last bottle. On this tasting I am increasing the aroma from 8 to 9, and increasing taste from 6 to 8. My first rating was 2/26/13 - 3.80 - I was warned that this beer wasnít going to be as good as I was expecting it to be... Pours a mildly hazy golden brown. White head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing. Good hop floral note to the nose. Very light on the tongue, slight bready taste, citrus, pine. Not the palette kick I was hoping for. -To IPA is to be.
