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.

Grapefruit he knows pours minimal head. Some nice lacing on the glass and amber light brown in color. Solid IPA nothing spectacular about it but very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An incredible IPA, and with the market completely flooded with them this entry from Bell’s truly stands out. On the nose you’ve got all sorts of good stuff- floral aromas abound, I sense some citrus in there too, it’s as though you’ve gone to an ornamental garden and you’re smelling the compendium of all the flowers. The taste is sweet but very balanced with the slight bitterness. This is a wonderfully carbonated IPA too so it feels great in the mouth, and the finish is super smooth. One of the best IPAs I’ve ever drank and obviously very deserving of its 100 rating on here.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, golden nice white head and minimal spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, and grassy hops. Taste is similar certainly quite hoppy citrus/tropical fruits notes, caramel malts to balance. Great IPA, very enjoyable. Glad it is now available in Delaware.

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smells of pine and lemon/citrus. Medium carbonation. Very sharp, soda-like, and crisp. Taste is just pine and hops going down. Aftertaste is long length. The aftertaste starts with a mixture of the hops and a bit of wheat/bread, but then the rest is all hops.

Cakes (389) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2015
16 oz. on tap. A very well balanced pale amber with a thin lacing .Golden brown, thin lacing. Tastes a bit like Dales Pale ale or Stoudt’s all American Ale, but a little beefier.

Great color, aroma, head retention. Notes of lemon and pine. Somewhat sweet. Well balanced with the bitterness. I am not usually fond of IPA, but I actually enjoyed this. Well done!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 03/20/15. The pour is a hazy orange pour one a big head. Check out all of those fruity notes on the nose! I get tropical, tangerine, orange, and blueberry all intermingling with the underbelly of sweet toasty malts. Medium to full body. The taste has an amazing sweet fruitiness that almost tempers the bitterness that finishes the experience. This gets a 100 out of 100 and I can see why. My only complaint is that it is a just a tad too fruity. Of course I had a 3 month old bottle so I wonder how it would be fresh.

euniceradio (150) - Colton, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
12oz bottle to cervoise. Pours clouded amber, white foamy head. Aroma of earth, citrus peel, malts, floral and some pine. Taste is malty, floral hops, wood, earth and grapefruit. Very well balanced with a plethora of flavors and malty backbone.

330mL bottle from Beer Cartel PKGD 03/07/15 Bright orange gold body with slight haze, holds a small ring of white foam. Punchy hop nose- lots of orange candy, grapefruit rind, pine resin, with toasty biscuit malts underneath. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, reasonably smooth overall. Big resiny body full of citrus, piney hops. Some toasty biscuity, light caramel sweetness provides a good balance to a firm bitterness. Very very good, daresay a touch overrated.
