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.

rosenbergh (9999) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 12 fl oz bottle. 12147 PKGD. 6/26/13 A. (Macadoodles) Branson, MO.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Exotic fruits, floral and sweet hops, moderate bitterness and sweetish malt in the stunningly delicious aroma. The flavour is smooth, extremely smooth. Exotic fruity and sweet with balancing maltiness. Perfectly balanced. Smooth and soft carbonation. This is the American IPA at it’s best. Incredible. I wanna travel to Kalamazoo...

Draught at the Bell’s Eccentric Café, Kalamazoo, MI.
Hazy amber colour with a small white head. Extremely fruity aroma with exotic fruits and mild bitterness. Very balanced. Fruity and piney hops, moderate bitterness and maltiness in an absolutely tasty flavour. This was the reason I travelled to Kalamazoo...

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2011 Firkin at Ashley’s. Poured a cloudy amber gold with an off-white head. Aroma was full of hops bring out a pleasant pine note, while there is an undertone of fruit, a bit of apple perhaps. The flavor was deliciously balance with pine notes as well the slightest sweetness under the bitterness.

DocLock (9709) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Pours deep straw colored. 5 for appearance, definitely. Excellent head and lacing. Super hoppy, citrusy, floral, fruity aroma. 10 for aroma. Tastes very hoppy, with nice malt base. Finishes very smooth, with hints of hops, malt, citrus, and perfumy florals, with some Belgian white alishness and sweet candi sugar and fine chardonnay qualities. Super complex. Great beer. Bells is in my top 10 brewers of all time. My second 5.0 rating. Perhaps I put too much emphasis on complexity, but I cannot deduct any points on this one. Awesome!!

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2006 Feb 2006 Bottle. Hazy golden orange body, with a small creamy white head. Fairly hoppy aroma with a touch of resiny citrus. Flavour is quite bitter, but is lacking in hops flavour and character, but some pleasant grapefruit. Medium palate. I would love to try this on tap to see what it is like very fresh. 7/3+/7-8/3+/16<P> June 2004 Bottle. Hazy golden amber with a very nice fluffy white head. Citrusy hops in the aroma. Bitterness in the flavour is a bit stronger than indicated in the aroma. Lots of resiny humulin lingering in the aftertaste. Very nice but a bit unbalanced with the hops dominating over the malt which is not an altogether bad thing depending what you are in the mood for. Thanks very much for the bottle NorthYorkSammy. 7/4/8/3/17 3.9

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 12oz Bottle. Very complex hops flavor. Floral, with spruce taste, maybe some ginger... Plus a lot more things that I can’t quite put my finger on. This is the kind of beer that makes me want to keep taking sips just so I can further examine the flavor, it’s very interesting. 8 / 5 / 9 / 4 / 17

Re-rate, 2/3/12: On tap. No date sticker on the keg. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head, leaves good lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation with a crisp finish, more dry texture. Floral hop character, light spruce tips, light citrus (grapefruit). Moderate bitter, with a lightly zesty sweet finish. The hops haven’t been as pungent and powerful lately as I remember the from the first couple times, but this is still unique and tasty in that Two Hearted way.

slowrunner77 (9661) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
nice floral hop aroma and a sturdy malt backbone make this one very well balanced and tasty ipa. stands out from the crowd, but is not among my personal favorites. i DO wish it was available here though. not a hop bomb, but there’s enough there to take notice. crisp, clean, dry bitter finish."
