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.

One if my first IPAís. Great light copper color, not super hoppy, all in all a great brew!

Excellent hop aroma and an over all great flavor, save for the obvious infections. DMS and occasional phenolics are obvious in this years batch. Overexpansion has come at a cost!

Iím not going to tell you what color this pours or what hints of what random fruit I get when I taste it. Iím simply going to tell you that this is one of the best beers Iíve ever had. Bellís (or Kalamazoo Brewing Co.) is easily one of the best breweries in the country.

Had this on tap for the first time recently and really enjoyed it with a feta pizza. The strong hops flavor is outstanding and it complemented the cheese perfectly.

Like I.P.A.ís? Youíll love this! This beer has such flavor and drinability its amazing. Smell that citrus bouquet? That heady aroma of Orange peel and possibly corriander? Good dose of Piney hops that any I.P.A. should have. This may be my new favorite.

This is the finest IPA Iíve ever tasted. It is so well made and such a refreshing change from the "sledgehammer" IPAís that dominate the market. The aroma is reminiscent of hop perfume, absolutely perfect. The appearance can be a little cloudy, just age in the fridge for a week and pour straight out with no gurgling. The flavor just sings with American hops and a great malt backbone. Bitterness is just right. So well made and so well balanced, I donít know how they do it. A definite must try.

Full bodied aroma and texture. Crisp hop bite with flowing flowered body and subtle fruitly finish. My favorite IPA.

bottled; nice crisp taste hops; not much balance but par for the IPA course; nice hoppy smell; very clean mouthfeel; not a lot to distinguish it from other top shelf IPAs - hop devil, stoneís, etc. but excellent company
