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.

crisp and lemony citrus. Grapefruit Bitter sipping with fruity salt, and bitter aftertaste with high but effective complementary hops. Lots of initial and remaining foam. Light texture. Floral aroma. Alcohol punch

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. Lime, tangerine, and pine hops aroma. Hazy orange-amber with moderate head and nice lacing. Sligntly sweet tangerine flavor quickly followed by moderate pine hops. Strange finish - after swallowing get a watery slightly metallic taste with pine hops returning a few seconds later. Nice that its flavor isnít the typical orange grapefruit.

Thank you Yngwie for sharing this great beer! It has been on my wish-list, and Iím not disappointed! Itís warm orange with a nice head and a fruity, hoppy aroma with loads of citrus, tangerine being dominant. The flavour is nice, harmonic and delicious with lots of fruit/citrus, again tangerine is the most dominant. It also has nice caramel notes that balances the bitterness nicely. Itís very charming and harmonic - yummi!!!! 2444
