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.

bottle. thanks for the bottle Len. pours a cloudy golden-orange body with a large creamy/frothy white head. aroma has some creamy sweet malts and a leafy floral hop presence. smooth creamy body with big resiny citrus hops up front...yeasty and sharp towards the end with a very long piney finish. an excellent IPA.

Light amber pour with medium white head, present intil last sip. IPAís arenít usually my thing, and this was no different. It was enjoyable intil the middle, then I had problems. Aroma was floral, flavor had a spicy distinct hop kick. It was surprisingly smooth to drink for the first couple of sips. Itís a good beer, just not my style.

On tap at the Clarkston Union. This light amber ale poured with a sparse white head, eliciting a very hoppy, floral aroma. The flavor, too, was quite hoppy and smooth with a carbonated mouthfeel. This is a very balance and tasty brew that goes well with most food.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Cask version at Firkinís, Libertyville, IL. Hazy light amber hued having small diminishing white head with good lacing. Lovely spicey hoppy aroma. No discernable carbonation. Medium bodied that starts with a clean slightly sweet malt flavor with flowery hops and finishes dry with flowery hops and moderate bitterness. Nice balance of hops and malt. A delicious tasty hoppy beer.

PeterLikesBeer (104) - Berwyn Heights, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2009 Pours a beautiful hazy amber color with a nice big head. aroma is very hoppy and really smells like a summer afternoon. Flavor is very well balanced there is lots of hops and some nice sweetness. also the flavor is a tad bit fruity. Flavor is very nice, however it does feel a little watery and could stand a little bit more dexture, nevertheless this is a great IPA.

WoW! This little devil packs a punch in the nose! I mean that in a good way, of course. Great floral hoppy character. This is a great food beer.

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2005
Yes please! Bottled ambrosia...thereís no ther way to describe it. Lovely, complex hop nose. Slightly opaque golden colour, thin lace of head. The palate is still tingling from the first sip. Very balanced hop profile with a lovely lingering after taste. Balance and satisfaction. The Bells brewers are gods.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Bottled. Pours a dark gold with a small white head. Strong citrus aromas. Nice hops and slightly bitter on the back end. This is one very well balanced brew.

Reddish orange. Aroma is pure dry hops, somewhat spicy. Pretty hoppy, but not overly bitter, perhaps balanced out by the good amount of malts in this one. Not sweet, but not dry either. Very well balanced and satisfying, even for someone not big into IPAís.
