It pours a clear, bright orange and gives the same color body with a decent foamy one centimeter white head and has some nice spider web lacing along the sides of the glass. No carbonation is seen rising. The smell has the orange up front with some hops tingling in the background. The taste has the previously mentioned flavors balanced really well. The palate is about a light to medium with nothing sharp on the tongue, thoroughly smooth. Though a fairly high ABV, there is a drinkable quality to this beer. Overall, this is one of the best American IPA’s on the market!

An aggressive pour resulted in a nice 1/4 inch off white head. The aroma is outstanding. The taste is even better. One the best IPA I've had. I'm surprised it took me this long to track down a 6-pack, which I was able to get at The Beer Store in Southampton, PA. I have to track down this in a 1/6th keg.

Bottle. Clear golden amber beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of oranges, citrus, peaches, pineapple and apricots. Flavor is fruity with notes of caramel, toffee, citrus, peaches and mangos. Well balanced and easy to drink.

Can sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. A bit hazy light copper with small off-white head. The aroma is hoppy, citrus, a bit cheesy, some maltiness. Nice hoppy flavor, grassy, citrus, rosemary, a bit malty, medium bitterness, "green". Light carbonation, medium-bodied.

Pours copper with a beautiful, lazy and foamy white head that clings well.
Sweet aroma with a mild soapy essence, pine and just a hint of citrus.
Very mild effervescence and hoppy bitterness are well in tune with the malted sweetness evident here. This is a brew ahead of the hop craze, with plenty of true hop strength but still very drinkable and well in balance.
Finishes rich on the tongue and lingers. A great brew without the excess of some other IPAs (although there is certainly room in the world for them too :)

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Really excellent crisp and refreshing IPA. It had been a long time since I had one of these and I’m very happy I did. For 7% the alcohol is well hidden.

Aluminum can from SBL: Poured with a thick frothy layer of foam head while a golden brass colored liquid rested below. The aroma is mild with enough earthy hops and bready malts come through to please my nose. The drink is bitter and fruity and taste like a well balanced IPA between the bitter grapefruit and pine flavors combined with a sourdough bread spread with butter which harmonizes the beer. Really happy to any Bells in so cal that I haven’t seen before.
