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.

Cloudy yellow/orange body with eggshell white head. Aroma is solid hoppy grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, but balanced with solid malt backbone. Chewy.

355ml can - thanks martjoobolut! (6+:3:7+:4:15=2.5++) canned 022916
Maybe my detergents are weird, but this reminds me of doing the washing up, piney and citrus. Sweetness comes from tinned peaches and pineapple. Pale orange, small brief head. Delicious toffee malts, fruity zesty hops. Perfect balance between malts, aromatic citrussy piney hops, and nettley zesty bitter hops. Shame about the negative connotations from the aroma, this is a gorgeous fresh IPA. Covers 7% very well indeed. Well done Bells, this reminds me of my first Hopslam experience years ago - I’m actually excited by an American IPA!

Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of carmel, floral, light pine and citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of light carmel, orange, light pine and some herbal notes with a lingering lightly bitter finish.

Lubiere (12270) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2006
Hazy golden IPA with a thick creamy white head. Floral C-hops with nutty maderized malt in aroma. In mouth, a fragrant IPA with earthy citrus, a biscuitty malt, light mint notes, lingering hops covering the mouth. A very nice IPA from a trade with Piscator, Nov. 2005.

mcberko (11870) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2011
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of potent grapefruit, piney hops and citrus, balanced by caramel malt. Flavour is heavy on the piney hops, grapefruit and citrus, with just enough caramel malt. Most wonderful IPA.
