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.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 a good ipa, but not one of my faves. bells in general seem to make quality brew, and this was no different. just not really anything special about it. hoppy, crips, citrusy, a bit fruity. rerate: fresh bottle. absolute favorite fresh. So well hopped, in a different way then those over the top(still great) california style ipas. I

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2006 If you like hoppy ales, you’ll love this beer. Intense aroma coming from a thick head. Drink it slowly, enjoy the citric hop flavor filling the mouth and sinus cavities. Enjoy the mildly bitter aftertaste. Enjoy.

Great floral aroma. Apricot, cat pee, ozone, pine. Fruity sweet rinds. Medium amber, light haze, thin lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts fruity with apricot, spice. Medium carbonic acidity. Huge fruity floral hops presence, with big bitter mouth-drying finish. After is bitter and just a bit peppery. Very nice IPA.

Wow, I really like this beer. Cloudy. Sweet floral hoppy grapefruit aroma. A very well balanced IPA. Good hops mainly in the end that are balanced with great malt flavors. One of the better IPAs I have had. Very easy to drink.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2004
12 oz bottle. Clear golden color and a fine head. The aroma is medium to high hops. The centennial throughout is quite nice. It is fairly bitter but there are flavor and aroma hops to round it out nicely. The flavor leaves you with a touch of lime. Great beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2004
Aroma is a blend of malt and hops, cloudy apricot, and a finger of white foam. Very hoppy taste at first, with malt coming in after. Well balanced, nicely bitter. Lovely! Thank joey_capps.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Picked up this beer on a trade in Coventry last weekend (where a song about my ratebeer user name was played). Huge sticky head atop a murky orange/brown body. Sweet orange aroma. Great citrus hop flavor with a nice lemon taste. A most excellant ipa.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 Sampled this beer at the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison WI. Even though my scores on this are accurate and well researched, ?Da Man? wants me to say more about the beer, so I will. I love Bell’s, and this is one of the better IPA’s I’ve had in a long time. A very nice beer.
