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- Wow, this beer is good. Standard amber, gold head with citrus aroma. Drinks easily. Tastes smoothly of hops, while still maintaing a malt balance.

I canít believe I havenít rated this since Iíve been drinking it for a couple years.Golden pour,decent lasting head. Aroma is pineyhops and grapfruit. Decent lacing. Tastes pretty much how it smells with a great body and mouthfeel. Too bad they are pulling out of IL for a spell. Should have stocked up on this.

Slightly hazy gold pour with a small foamy off-white head. Strong caramel malt aroma with a pronounced note of grapefruit and other citrus fruits. Lots of piney, grapefruit hop flavor with a solid caramel malt background. Nice creamy medium body.

Iíd heard a lot of positive buzz about this beer before trying it for the first time. Now, in my part of the world at least, it seems like it occupies sort of a gold standard of craft beer (IPAs at least). Appearance is amber and cloudy. Gead sticks around, and around. This particular example was still sitting around even after the glass was empty. Aroma is definitely hoppy, and a bit sweet. Flavor is hops plus citrus and very pleasant. And after, you get those great hop-flavored burps! Iíve had it before, and Iíll be having it again.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Very stinky! Smells of hops and friuts. Very creamy medium body tastes like pine hops spices and fruit. Great taste quite complex. Bells really cant make a bad beer

12 oz. Bottle. Beautiful white, lacey head and a hazy, golden color. Strong aroma of citrus, even when nose is feet away from the glass. Noted stong pine aroma when nose was closer to the beer. Flavor was dry and hoppy, with grapefruit notes. Nice long finish on this beer. Glad I have five more to drink.

Stumbled on this at a good restaurant in Akron. This is one great IPA. Great hop aroma and a nice crisp taste. Not over the top and not too pine resin-like. A little different that some of my other favorite IPAs. A little smoother to drink.

12-oz., thanks to MTDSHN--thanks, Mike, this stuff is incredible! Pours the cloudy amber with the moussy white head. Lots of floral/orange/sherbet hops on the nose. Creamy body. Good chew to the mouthfeel; pleasantly high-moderate carb. Lots of citrus (orange, a little lemon, slight grapefruit) through the palate. Grea thop variety and a nice sweet easy drinking malt backbone. 6 ounces into the first one, itís obvious that this is one of the great session beers of all time. Not to mention probably the greatest label--no shilly shallying around, just a great image and the name.

Bottle. Pours a nice deep golden brown with little head or lacing. Aromas of hop, sugar, quite a bit of spice (cinnamon). Flavor is fairly sweet with a good hop background that leaves a somewhat drying aftertaste. An excellent IPA and a good example without overdoing it in the hops.
