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.

alexanderj (3462) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Pours a mildy hazy, yellow-gold. small to medium head. Aroma of grapefruit, a general citrus, and some floral notes. Taste was of grapefruit, with a really good floral component. Only small trace of malt. Smooth, great mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2008 12 oz bottle...Wonderful grapefruit aroma and flavor to this. Pleasant hop flavor and bitterness, while maintaining good balance. Perfect carbonation, fairly light mouthfeel. One of the more enjoyable and sessionable IPAs Ive had.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Served from a 12 oz. bottle at the Wicked Hop in Milwaukee. Strong hop aroma and flavor, nicely rounded without going over the top. Medium bodied. Long lasting bitter finish without harshness. Very pleasant IPA. Id do a better rating by my wife chews my butt when I take notes while we are out.

jefcon (1562) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Strong and pleasant aromas of grapefruit, lemon, perfume and flowers. Heady beer with an opaque orange sunset in the glass. Tons of lacing. Gently bitter hops up front. Harsher, more bitter hops in the middle f the palate, and a hoppy finish that contains juicy grapefruit, orange and lemon. Smooth and rich throughout. Nearly-silent caramel malts in the deep background of this profiled palate. A tremendous IPA, bold and American.

shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 pours with a medium head, with an aroma of apricots and floral hoppiness. The taste is quite the same. It is a great beer on tap, but I couldnt quite imagine drinking more than 2 of them.

Nephilium (1593) - Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2007
The aroma is of grapefruit, it almost smells like a glass of grapefruit juice. It pours a slightly hazy amber, with a minimal head that quickly fades, leaving only lacing behind. The taste is of well balanced hops, blending citrus and bitter. The palate has the very slight hint of oils of a good IPA, and the finish is crisp. Another good addition from Bells.

Just got this is a trade. Very good looking brew. Nice thick color. Smell is a bit meh. The taste and drinkability on this are superb. Very smooth with strong flavor in it. Since im still not sure what or how describe the "mouth feel" ill say that this has a great mouth feel. I drink it and it tastes great.

millysdaddy (67) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2007
12 bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a memium-sized white head. Lots of floral and citrus hop aroma. Prominent flavors of orange and floral hops with some earthy undertones. Although the hops are featured, the beer is very well balanced. A very good IPA.

A: poured a beautiful golden orange with a huge frothy, white head and a ton of lacing S: as is the case with many top beers of this style, the beer gives off an ample floral aroma. I am definitely getting some slight citrus and/or coriander scents as well. Very appealing. T: A gorgeous wallop of hops smacks your tongue right off the bat, then the malts slip in to balance the overall flavor, and everything finishes at once, like a perfectly timed meal. Hop lovers will definitely want to grab this beer. M: Not a ton of body, a tiny bit thin, but overall very nice. D: Now here is where this beer truly shines. The excellent taste + reasonable alcohol content + an amazing level of refreshing qualities makes this an all-day drinker. Wonderful beer that I could and would go back to time & time again. Recommended.
