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
Biscuit, malt and bread
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.

Ok. Would not go out of my way for this. So many other decent brews. This is not in their wheelhouse. Not Hopslam and not a Stout.

Pours pure gold. Surprising light but fresh citrus/pine aroma. Tastes clean and citrusy, hints of pine, hints of caramel. Very well balanced and not overpowering. Clean and fresh and very nice and good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light copper to gold color with a creamy head that dissipates quickly. Smells of light caramel mixed with the scent of mouth watering sweet floral hop goodness. Taste is at first citrusy with grassy-ness with strong bitterness that lingers on the tongue with a very slight alcohol warmth. Nice medium to full bodied mouthfeel. My memory of this beer was more balanced but in reviewing it today the hop bitterness was very prominent. A solid IPA from Bellís that I am sure I will drink many more of.

Bottle. I drank this at a crappy fish shack in Mackinaw, MI. SENSATIONAL IPA! Lemon-citrus odor explodes and wakes up the olfactory. Thick, syrupy body. One of the best beers Iíve ever had.

Very tasty beer. Some hop, more on the sharp side, but not overwhelming. Very pleasant scent.
