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: Thanks to Ramenen, the highlight of the Father´s Day dinner sample series! The only thing I can critique is the label, you wouldn´t know you´re drinking a 100% IPA by looking at it! Full, potent, well balanced overall great.

aleigator (470) - GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
Pours a froth, beautiful bubble durchzogen white head, with a sunny amber, slighty hazy color. Smells of grass driven orange, coated up by bitter lemon zest. Citrus peel grows stronger, as the beer warms up with unripe, sour kiwi, as well as apricot skin. Still, the maltiness is very strong on the nose, adding a note of earth and rock sugar to the hops. Has a medium carbonation, exhibiting a refreshing, hop forward beer, with lots of exotic fruits to it, as well a prominent malt backbone. Begins with sweeter, biscuity malts, revealing toffee infused rye bread, giving the malts a pleasant depth, balancing the well pronounced hops easily. Reveals surprisingly sweet toffee malts, which get joined by far reaching lime juice, which lends the beer a profound, bitter refreshment. The hops get enhanced by dried tangerine peel and apple stones, providing an aggressive dryness, which features a worthy counterpart to the well developed malt backbone, staying on the tongue for a longer while. Well balanced, easy drinking ipa which isn’t convincing only for its hoppy part, but also for its eigenständig malty part, adding to the hops, while balancing them, without cutting them short in any way. Old school ipa, with a straight forward, long lasting hoppiness, providing a great fruiti- and dryness, successfully coated up by the malts.

Poured from the bottle. Nice head, great aroma, mostly citrus. Flavor has a very nice bitterness to it. This beer surprised us in Arizona! Can’t believe we nabbed a 100 ipa. But it’s worth every point

mambossa (93) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle to snifter. Rich gold pour with lasting head. Aroma is sharp and bright, juicy lemon, and borderline-parfumy floral. Taste is an abundance of pleasant floral-dominated notes, clean sweet malt on finish with a palatable pine-like linger. Well balanced indeed. Just had a 3F Zombie Dust, would certainly classify under the same vein/caliber. Two Hearted being slightly more lingering and rich. Always good.

Pours cloudy amber body with a foamy head. Great malt and hop start with a floral hop finish. A magnificent brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

By far one of my favorite IPAs I've had. A great go to IPA and one I always purchase when introducing a friend to great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuchessOfIowa (51) - Iowa, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Nice citrus and grapefruit aroma although not as big as I expected. Clear amber with some slight haze. Medium white head with good lacing. Bread and caramel sweetness and mild dryness. Citrus and pine are in the back of the palate. A solid IPA. Wish I could taste this fresh but is always a couple months old here..always.

Great American pale ale. Not overpowering bitterness at all. Extremely smooth and great balance between floral notes and bitterness. Could drink all day. Great job, Bells.

Smells fruity of strawberries. Not a strong smell. Nice white head that fades quickly. Golden in color. Tastes of grapefruit rind. Hop flavor hangs in mouth light body beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Straight from the can. NOSE is very hoppy and fresh, some pine. TASTE is extremely balanced and very hoppy. Nice in general!
