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.

I’ve never had a Bell’s I didn’t like, except the Oarsman, which was still okay, so lets see: -Pours light amber dark yellow traditional pils color with a two finger white head that does not seem to be going anywhere. Lacing sticks around throughout. Aroma is citrus hops and flower bouquet with a faint fishy something going on. Medium in the mouth with a heavy strange floral hop, unique kind of IPA approach. Atypical in the fact that it’s hitting you with some hop that is not common, and reminds me of tangy fruit like grapefruit but not, a flowery feel like the tang of a dandelion stem, but not. Hard to peg. Flowers and fruit. Little oily in the finish, resolving to hops on the tip and alcohol in the back. I like it. I like Bell’s. Bravo, good sirs.

Cajun (244) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUN 28, 2016
12oz bottle - Pours orange with thick white head. Good smelling brew, aroma of grapefruit and flowers. Big bitter sip... citrus, and hint of roasted malt, but over-powered by the hops. I’m fine with this brew. It’s good; decent... but clearly overrated and now forever apart of folklore.

axl (480) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
355ml bottle. Semi-hazy golden with quickly fading two finger white head. Aroma is heavy grapefruit, citrus and caramel. Taste is the same with pronnounced grapefruit bitterness, fruitier citrus and sweet malty caramel in the background. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and lasting bitter aftertaste with warming alcohol.

anstei (977) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Can. Aroma of grass, pine, over mango, grapefruit, passion fruit on the tongue. Well carbonated, but not fizzy or lively, rather smooth. Thick and full, yet not overpowered. Very good balance despite all the intensity. Clearly a good brew.

Alphadelic (2104) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Excellent. Really my kind of IPA. Plenty of piney hop but balanced with a real sweet malt. Not quite as good as the about IPA but I did just drink a 4 pack so I definitely like it.

Pours hazy orange-amber, with little head. Smell is fresh hopiness, some overripe fruitiness underneath. Taste is bitter hops up front, smooths out some after. Thin body, but it fits here. Not bad.
