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.

You can tell they use the hops in this beer. You really have to be ready when you take the first sip of this beer. This is my favorite IPA but I am sure that has something to do with the fact that my heart is with the Upper Peninsula. Make sure you take the time to pour this beer into a glass because it is good looking and really brings a lot to the beer.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Very hoppy, but very well balanced. citrusy with a dry finish. Bells makes great beer and this is easily one of the best they make. This has become my favorite IPA hands down

Light golden hoppie stout. Light hoppie scent. This beer was a light ale color with a very bitter aftertaste.

This IPA actually does remind me of times spent at the lake house in Garden Bay. It has a subtle yet well defined hoppy feel that is very enjoyable. Great cloudy light amber color with a small but suitable head. A great beer for late afternoons and/or early evenings around the campfire on a lake house beach.

Great IPA! Very flavorful. Great hop taste without being too bitter. Slightly sweet to impart a full flavor. A great beer!

Sabrinic (23) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle. Light amber/golden orange color. Floral, citrusy (grapefruit), hoppy aroma and flavor. Bitter, but not over the top harsh. Well balanced between malts and hops. An easy to drink and enjoyable IPA!

Excellent balance between floral and piney hips and a bready malt backbone. Very clean. One of the best shelf IPAs around.

Poured into glass out of bottle. Nice orange color. So smooth I donít ever want to stop drinking it. One hell of an IPA.

I think this is probably one of my favorite pale ales iíve had. It is not overpowering, but has great hop taste.

Unfiltered cloudy amber color. Straight-up hop aroma of a typical American IPA. Definitely an easy drinker. Good summertime IPA. I'm quite fond of the two-hearted.
