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.

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. Bellís 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. Itís 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 doesnít berate the palate, very sweet citrus-floral flavor.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 Cloudy golden pour with thin foamy head. Nice soft lacing on the glass. Extremely floral, citrus and orange aroma with good amount of malt on the back end. Medium body, smooth transition to long lasting finish. Good balance of hop and malt. Very well crafted.

Clear golden pour with light honey hue. Fluffy off-white foam with plenty of lacing. Nice looking beer. All the beautiful smells of a well-made IPA come rushing out. Grapefruit, lemon, floral notes, pine, and pepper all with a strong toasted malt backbone. Damn, does it taste good. Sweet biscuity malts with a kiss of honey, plenty of citrus, and a peppery hop that sticks on the tongue without being overpowering, or too oily. Doesnít assault your tongue with overwhelming bitterness, but builds up slowly and lingers. After working in a beer store for four years this is one IPA I always recommend customers try first. I am taking a job in the UP and feel as if this beer is a good omen for my move.

This beer is a quintessential ipa. Off the nose Moderate hopps Biscuit, malt and bread Perfect carbonation on the backend: Sweet, but well balanced No shitty aftertaste Good going down The 7%abv is well masked I had 4 beers and "feelin' it" I definitely recommend this beer. This beer is the definition of a well balanced ipa. I definitely enjoyed this beer. The drinkability exceeded my expectations. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Intense floral aroma with notes of citrus. Flavor is initally sweet but ends with a clean, hop finish. Great balance in this beer. Another winner from Bells.

12 oz bottle Aroma: pleasing mild floral Appearance: tall, creamy head that lasts and leaves a film on surface and glass; amber orange color, slightly cloudy Taste: refreshing, pleasant bitterness thatís just right and long lasting; finishes with a suggestion of sweetness. Invites sipping and savoring like an impressive wine.
