Bottle- Wow, this beer is good. Standard amber, gold head with citrus aroma. Drinks easily. Tastes smoothly of hops, while still maintaing a malt balance. AcctError53893 (89) - holland, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Pours amber with a huge white head. Aroma is piny, with hops and citrus. Taste is full of pine, hops, and some citrus fruits. A great IPA, another solid beer from Bell’s. HoppyBunny (88) - Temptation, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2004

Still catching up on the beers I got from the_Epeeist in trade. Thanks! Almost no head, what there is, is white and disappears immediately. Certainly not a West Coast IPA. I almost think there should be a new category of IPAs for the SoCal IPAs, but that might put the purists off a little too much. SD IPAs have a truckload more malt than this, and an obvious overload of hops. There is a crisp hop finish to be sure, and an exceptional balance when it comes to flavor and in the nose. An expertly crafted IPA without doubt. Yet, as a resident of San Diego, I cannot help but wonder if the makers of this beer would have been influenced on the hop-side by what is going on around here. My personal struggle is that my introduction to IPAs came here, in San Diego, where the hop load is in the opinions of most, entirely too much. I’m working on that, and I think this beer is incredible. Balanced. Orange. Crisp. Perfect, no matter where you are in the US.

Had this beer on tap at Fat Katz. Strong hops were balanced by a nice sweet malt. Easy to drink and a not too heavy mouthfeel with a good finish.

Bottle. A great IPA. Orange/copper with a slight haze and thin creamy white head. Aroma is not quite citrus, but more orange/orange peel with herbal hoppiness. Well-balanced flavor tips over into a nicely bitter hop finish. Smooth and slightly crisp mouth feel. Not as good from the bottle as it is on tap, but still one of the best IPA’s out there in my book. ChetLemmons (87) - orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2007
kinda cloudy, decent looking head. looked syrupy coming out. apricot and floral aroma. light bodied, smoother than i was expecting. tastes very good, but the after taste kind of kills it, it’s almost like drinking a stale fruit roll up. like the smell, apricot and hoppy in taste.

Bottle - Pours pale orangish-yellow with a 2 finger white head. Nice piney nose. Taste is absolutely superb. Such a well balanced brew. If anything stands out it’s malt, very malty all the way though. Aftertaste hits hard with hops, then back to malt and lingers very nice. What an IPA, fantastic.

Pours a nice burnt orange with a one finger head that fades after a while but never completely leaves. Nice webbed lacing. Grapefruit and grassy hops in the nose. A very balanced IPA with a clean finish. Very good.
