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.

Bov (10117) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 16, 2009
courtesy of Chris Beers - pours a cloudy orange colour under a huge foamy white head; fairly fruity hoppy nose (mango and apricots) with notes of fresh cream; quite soft mouthfeel and full-bodied; a robust but never aggressive bitterness takes control of the taste; moderately dry bitter and long fruity finish - balanced and robust; very well-made

daknole (10041) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Yeah this is a top notch IPA...Bells does it AGAIN. Beer pours a slightly cloudy golden/orange color with a medium white head. Aromas are hops, pine, and more hops! Flavor is delicious. Hoppy, faint hints on honey, light malt notes, perfect carbonation. Best IPA I have ever had I do believe.

hopscotch (9953) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2002
The aroma is of hop blossoms, FTD flowers, fir trees and freshly ground black pepper. Hazy, deep golden hue with a large, rocky white head. Mostly, but not fully diminishing with great lacing. The flavor is that of bitter juniper berries and pine/fir with just a suggestion of the heavy malt and high gravity alcohol. Full-bodied with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Long, citrisy, bone-dry finish with a woodsy, gin-laden whisper at the far end. Very nice IPA.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Bottle @ home, courtesy of bushmat1. Thanks Matt! Glowing, light orange appearance with a white head. Orange/grapefruit citrusy, lightly piney hoppy nose that’s almost like an orange creamsicle. Mildly bitter, moderate orange and grapefruit citrusy hoppy, floral, moderately, sweet pale malty flavor. Sweet, citrus hoppy aftertaste. Excellent!
