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.

This along with Sweetwater IPA is my benchmark for IPAís.The fact this is a year round offering is outstanding.The first time I drank this beer was ice cold straight out of my cooler on the beach years ago!!Cool story I know...This brew pours an amber/orange color with a decent sized white head.Nose is grapefruit and pine.Taste is spectacular with hops and malts so in sync you find yourself treating this as a session beer!Once again this and Sweetwater IPA are the BENCHMARKS for everyday available IPAís!!

An incredible IPA, and with the market completely flooded with them this entry from Bellís truly stands out. On the nose youíve got all sorts of good stuff- floral aromas abound, I sense some citrus in there too, itís as though youíve gone to an ornamental garden and youíre smelling the compendium of all the flowers. The taste is sweet but very balanced with the slight bitterness. This is a wonderfully carbonated IPA too so it feels great in the mouth, and the finish is super smooth. One of the best IPAs Iíve ever drank and obviously very deserving of its 100 rating on here.

Great color, aroma, head retention. Notes of lemon and pine. Somewhat sweet. Well balanced with the bitterness. I am not usually fond of IPA, but I actually enjoyed this. Well done!

hfmejias (974) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, golden nice white head and minimal spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, and grassy hops. Taste is similar certainly quite hoppy citrus/tropical fruits notes, caramel malts to balance. Great IPA, very enjoyable. Glad it is now available in Delaware.

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smells of pine and lemon/citrus. Medium carbonation. Very sharp, soda-like, and crisp. Taste is just pine and hops going down. Aftertaste is long length. The aftertaste starts with a mixture of the hops and a bit of wheat/bread, but then the rest is all hops.

Cakes (387) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2015
16 oz. on tap. A very well balanced pale amber with a thin lacing .Golden brown, thin lacing. Tastes a bit like Dales Pale ale or Stoudtís all American Ale, but a little beefier.

BrewMaster0912 (38) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Pours a cloudy and dark orange color with a thick cream colored frothy head. It has a strong floral hop aroma. The taste is a kind of a sweet yet bitter taste the and the aftertaste is kind of dry with a bit of spruce or pine.

Hoprider (149) - DENMARK - JUN 21, 2015
Pours hazy clear golden orange with a white head. Nose is ballanced with light malty sweetness, and clementine/citrus hops. The taste is lightly sweet with fruity and crisp hop character. Straight forward and well made ipa. Mouthfeel is light with a tingly carb. Aftertasteis fresh and shows light passionfruit. Mildly bitter end the finish. Good stuff.

Sevenlee (1555) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2015
Been waiting many years to get my hands on some Bellís; this is my first chance. Pours a hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a beautifully balanced hop finish. While an excellent beer, a little surprised to see such a high rating when Iíve had better IPAs rated much lower. Freshness counts for a lot I guess!

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Good appearance, aroma and taste were a bit mild and lacking. Went down super smooth for an IPA but I was a bit underwhelmed, giving the lofty ranking.
