Tasted from a 12oz bottle. It poured a light, hazy shade of amber with a thick, frothy white head and solid lacing. Big hop aeoma with some mango citrus. Great hop flavor with a bitter finish. A solid, delicious effort from Bells!

Orange-gold pour with a tight white head. Sweet orangey, piney aroma, nice malt underneath. Sweet, juicy citrus and tropical fruit, caramel, very good

270116. Bells Brewery is fast becoming one of my favourite breweries and if they keep producing beers like this then it will quickly jump to the top of the list. There is a lot of butterscotch and fresh cut flowers in the aroma of this beer and in the mouth it is smooth and malty with butterscotch and caramel coming through. Awesome beer that I bought from Beer Cartel.

Rating #1587 - 22.03.2015 - On tap at the Commons ale house in Santa Monica, it figures that live closer to this brewery and they have distribution in Cali. Pours a rich golden amber, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is orange zest, tangerine. On the palate, similar tropical flavours, mild resin, mild pine needle. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced.

Amber color with a minimal white head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly malty. Taste is nicely balance with the hops coming through just enough to say this is not your average IPA. Well done!

Too much bittering hop for me. Nice classic piney aroma with good malt, nice color. But the taste is just too bitter to be a great IPA. This is like an OG style IPA that gained prominence 5-10 years ago. Now things have moved toward more fruit, more pungent aroma, new types of hops. I think it turns out I just never liked this style of IPA.

The beer has a copper/amber color with a medium head. Aroma has a lot of fruit like mangos and some pears. Taste has a lot of fruit for an IPA. There is a tropical taste up front followed with some malts and a mild bitterness. Great balance and beer.

I think I broke my palate for IPAs. A "well balanced" IPA comes across as overly-malty to me. I like the aroma a little more than the taste. Still a nice beer, just not what I’m looking for in an IPA right now.
