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.

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Appearance is hazy golden orange with a medium eggshell-white head. Aroma is fantastic. Sweet orange and malt on top of floral, pine, and other subtle citrus scents. Taste is more floral and pine, and there is a bitterness following the light malty sweetness. Very smooth, crisp feel. This is a fantastic beer, one of the best I’ve had. It even puts other IPAs to shame. The guys at Bells know what they’re doing.

Best IPA I’ve ever had. If this doesn’t deserve a 5, no beer does. Perfection.

Alpha10 (326) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
2014/08/29 - Pours a translucent orange-copper colour with a large, frothy, off white head that lingers and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is huge citrus (grapefruit, orange and lemon), some bready notes, mild caramel and a touch of pine. Taste follows nose; lots of citrus, some biscuit and a hint of caramel. Nice sweet and tart citrus with a moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium and slick with sharp carbonation and a smooth, drying finish. Really enjoyed the finish; very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light orangey color, clear, topped with a fine white frothy head. There is a strong and plesant citrusy hops aroma, my favourite. The taste starts easy, followed by a fairly strong bitterness in the finish. Not too strong, but still kicks nicely. Drinkable and enjoyable.

Had this beer in a bottle. Copper yellow color with lots of head. Clean, light citrus aroma. Nice hoppy taste with light citrus taste. No aftertaste. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a great IPA. It has the bite of the hops but it goes down and tastes smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DATE REVIEWED: August 8, 2014... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... OCCASION: Happy 38th birthday, myself--with the fam, Jer and Matt...APPEARANCE: orange amber body; filmy and hazy; thick, white three-finger head; lacing extends upward and thickly spreads across the glass--a great start... AROMA: fruity and hoppy; apple and citrus first; some bubblegum yeasts too; lastly, some metallic suggestions... PALATE: fantastic, medium-bodied and arresting--effervescent and alive; an IPA to sip and simmer with--little suggestion of alcohol, but definitely weightier than a pint glass... TASTE: balanced caramel malts underpin a hop festival of Noble and citrus--tangy tangerine and teeth-rattling pine resin, a combo that shakes and soothes in unison--this is the IPA the beer folk warn us about...OVERALL: as IPAs go, a mecca of sorts--the hype is to be believed--and although there are many that rival Two Hearted, it is a beer I will seek out again, even if it’s only found in a case at a PSU distributor, as this was; the name itself evokes that "slow" short story that nonetheless reveals so much of man’s plight and hope, and this is a worthwhile stab at perfection....
