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. Pours a nice golden color. Aroma is of big citrus notes with a small amount of pine. Taste follows the nose. Very crisp and clean. Overall a great beer by Bells.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Sweet citrus smell and good hoppy taste. Donít get me wrong, this is a very good IPA, but just not as great as everyone else seems to think I guess... in my opinion. It also seems that this is not nearly as good as it was a few years back. In addition, I have had 6 packs that are great and others that taste just so so. This cannot be my imagination. A product of mass production perhaps?

Amaing, Wow! This is a hell of an ale. Very floral and fuc&%n Hoppy> Bam This is the shi#!!!>>> Amazon whamo flavor and the smell is so nice of a floral beauty like a floral shop. Sweet, bitter, dry, perfect almost and a smiling face maker. This is a beer I would take if I stranded on a island and SHIZIT!!!

Cask conditioned at Graydon’s Crossing. Creamy head with perfect balance of malt and hops. The two hearts must come from two different beer enthusiasts: hop/malt, because it cares a very even tone throughout yet encompasses everything a beer ought to be. Drink it!

I was severely disappointed. This beer was recommended by a coworker and rated so highly here that I was expecting more. The grapefruit flavor was a definite plus for me in adding to overall complexity. However, I found there to be too much of a reliance on the upper palate and too little of a well rounded flavor.

Draft. Pours golden with small white head. Floral piney aromas. Lost of hop flavor but not overwhelming. There is a good malt balance in this beer. Finishes with lingering floral hop flavors. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I remember this being very good. Something about this beer tasted a little funny to me, but I donít really recall what it was as I got pretty lit up later in the night.

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.

Draft. Bright golden color, thin lacy white head. Sweet, citrusy and pine aroma, cereal and malty as it warms. Dry, cereal, grapefruit, lemon, peppery. Alcohol becomes more apparent as it warms.

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!!!
