4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one damn fine IPA, the centennial hops just jump right out at you. Quite a bit of yeast on the nose, I wonder if bottle was okay? Fruity, citrusy, even a discernable mango note. nice clean finish in the mouthfeel, some of the hop monsters leave you begging for saliva.

Thick, off-white head, golden color. Aroma is citrus, mostly of lemon and/or grapefruit. Extremely hoppy with a bitter aftertaste. Very tasty.

Bottle. IPAs are not my favorite style, but this is one hell of a beer. Pours a light amber with a nice creamy head. Aroma is definitely pine. Taste of citrus and wonderful hop bitterness. Full bodied and well balanced. Bells really knows what they are doing.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Always a treat. Itís golden orange color is very close to what I consider perfect for an IPA. Itís got that undoubtable sweet citrus smell of Centennial. And man, what a well-balanced beer. From start to finish, itís never overwhelming in any direction. Just smooth and clean.

Citrus aroma. Good floral note.
Excellent balance with a good hop kick. Clean citrus finish tops it off.

Spicy aroma with a bit of citrus. Nice bold and earnest hop flavor that finishes with pine and spice. Pairs well with a solo backpacking/fishing trip in the U.P.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a well-made right in the Middle IPA between being over hoppy and to malty. A clean nice aftertaste left on the palate very smooth and easy to drink. I would drink it again poured from a bottle. Big Mikeís Brevard NC
