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.

Delicious IPA with a nice orange cloudy color. Packaging says decant to serve, and it does look good in the glass. The beer has almost a tangy flavor with both bitterness and sweetness from the orange flavoring.

Bottle (batch 7717). Pours a light orange color with a creamy off-white head. Some is lasting leave good lacing. The aroma finds orange citrus and floral backed with some caramel. The flavor has orange peel and malty background. Medium body with a mild bitterness upfront that turns sweet.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Great IPA. Draft pour from Dickyís Wild Hare in Fort Wayne, IN. A nice clear orange-copper color with a single finger white head. The lacing on this was remarkable as the entire opposite side of the glass was coated. Consisted of orange and floral hop scents. Very smooth brew, starts out tame with a killer orange slice taste which finishes in to a strong hop bite with some grapefruit in the aftertaste. Another fine Bellís brew.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2009 Bottle. A fantastic IPA. Clean tasting hoppy bitterness mixed with a mild sweetness of malt. Very floral and a bit fruity. Pours a big, solid head. Complex and drinkable at the same time. Iíve had this one many many times and have never been disappointed. Itís especially amazing when itís at its freshest.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Pours a cloudy amber color with a huge soapy head. Aroma is pleasing-hops, citrus, pine. Body is heavy for an IPA. Taste is hop-loaded, but well-balanced with citrus.
