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.

This is an exceptional IPA. It gives you a malty sweetness which I was not expecting. Most IPA's stop at the citrus character of the brew. This gave you a nice experience.

By far and away one of my favorite and go to IPAís. The hops are present at the start, middle and finish. If I had one IPA to choose this woud be in the running.

A top notch ipa with a slight citrusy finish and lingering hops at the end. A thoroughly tasteful example of the style.

Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy Golden Amber with about 3/4 of a finger worth of white head. Piney Hops aroma at first, which fades into a more floral hop aroma as the head dissappates. Carbonated Hoppy bitter flavor up front, followed by a mild but noticeable floral hop flavor, with a balanced hoppy bitter finish. Bitterness fades away and leaves you with a nice floral taste that lingers till your next sip. I feel that this is a well balanced IPA, not too much or too little of any one thing. Very drinkable.

This is a beautifully balance IPA with tons of citrus hop flavor and the perfect amount of residual malt character. The day they distribute to Southern California will be a good day.

Its official, I LOVE BELLS!!!! All of Bellsí beers are fantastic. I wasnít a big fan of Ales until I drank this. The color is a very rich deep gold and the aroma is intoxicating. With all Bells beers, theres no terrible after taste, clearly its made with quality ingredients and lots of focus on the brewing process.

One Of My favorite Pale Aleís. From Bottle. Pours A Beautiful Copper Color With A Creamy Head A Little Over An Inch High, Very Citrusy Floral Aroma. Almost Like Being In A Flower Garden That Is Also Growing Hops. Very Crisp Dry Taste. Very Smooth And Easy To Drink. A Hoppy Bitterness Taste Almost Makes My Mouth Pucker. Definately Worth Trying

Honestly, this is one of the best IPAs that I have had in a while... I just canít believe that I didnít buy it when I first saw it. It has a wonderfully strong hop character with some citrus that is balanced by a perfect amount of malts. I havenít had the chance to pour it in a glass yet but it produces a nice bit of head after just popping the bottle :)

Poured with a thin white head, decent lacing, over a hazy yellow-amber body. Aroma is floral and earthy hops over a crackerlike malt backbone. Flavor is a fantastic balance of earthy hops and crackerlike malt, with a lingering earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Body is medium-plus, with a velvety soft carbonation. Alcohol is exceptionally well-hidden. Easily one of my favorita American Pale Ales.
