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 beer pours coppery with an inch of foam. The aroma is quite hoppy, which smells yummy! The flavor is dominated by hops, but a great malty finish. This beer is well balanced. The body is medium with medium carbonation. This is a great beer and will remain in my drinking rotation!!!

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2009 Pours light brown with a very light tan head. This beer is very hoppy with a very hoppy aftertaste. Tastes like a double IPA. Me not being a fan of IPAs did not particulary care for it but if you love hop infused beer you will like this.

Aroma: very floral hoppyness, some malts. Appearance: Clear dark golden color with nice head that leaves a nice lacing when it dissipates a few mins later. Flavor: floral, hoppy, pine, malts. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter. Overall: this beer is good but not as good as the 60min or Stone IPA in my opinion. It seems like itís lacking in complexity and finish. itís mainly relying on itís awesome aroma to win peoples vote.

Great floral/citrus aroma. Pours paler than I expected. Pale amber. Bitter, but well balanced with the malt. Thin head, gentle lacing. Canít believe itís 7%... Great, great IPA

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 Very citrus forward and only a mild bitterness. One of the classic American IPAs. Excellent

Golden color brew poured into an ipa glass and an off white head pillowed up and then retreated to a lasting film across the top. Lacing was steady and constant all the way to the end. Aroma of hops, pine, and a beautiful floral citrus. Taste is simple with a mix of citrus, strong pine, and hop bitterness. Easy drinking and nice bite on the palate. Bellís has concocted a real nice IPA here, well done!

Wow! Delicious IPA. Beautiful Hop Aroma destinguishable from 10 feet away. Poured a Dirty Golden yellow with a fast disapating head. A gorgues Blend of subtle malts and Intense Hop additions has moved this to the Top of my list. Well Done!

Golden yellow with a hint of orange. The nose is a complex mix of sweet citrus, tangarine, butter cream and fresh cut grass. Medium bodied. I taste lemon zest, orange and pine needle. The bitterness is not the star here and that in itself is refreshing. Nice mellow finish. Just a well crafted beer in every measurable aspect.

12 oz. -> Shaker. Pours a hazy peach, with an eggshell head - nice mix of pillowy head and fisheyes, such that if this head were a face, itíd have localized, blotchy acne: unfortunate when itís red, fine when itís head, unless, you know, itís the other head. Then, red is still bad. Nice lacing. Smells of citrus-y, sour grapefruit, dried apricot, fresh-cut grass, with floral and evergreen aromatics. Tastes of sweet grapefruit, grass, with a sour, soda water-like note, and... yeah, the dried apricot is there too. Iíve been enjoying this beerís cousins for several years now. If I lived 40 minutes to the east, Iíd have this stuff in my beer ífridge often.
