Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. Hazy amber color with a vigorous beige head. Nice aroma of resin and floral hop. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very hoppy, piney with a hint of grapefruit. Finishes smooth and tasty. There’s enough malt to give the illusion of balance. Why can’t we get this in California?

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Re-rate 10/19/08:Bottle. Batch 8677. Thanks a lot for this bottle archmik! Clear, maybe very slightly hazy, deep golden color. Aroma has quite a bit of floral hops with some citrus, but also a nice malty tone with caramel and some cookie notes. A sweetish flavor at first with some malt, continues hoppy and bitter with some grapefruit and with caramel lingering in the background. Medium-bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. A very good balanced IPA. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8Scopey (14730) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012

Tap at Abraxas Lounge, Miami. It pours golden yellow, with a 1cm white head. The nose is floral, fresh pine and grapefruit. The taste is lemon, lime, grapefruit, pine, resin, floral, some underlying sweetness and grass, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Crisp and easy drinking. I wasn’t blown away by this, but still it’s a solid, enjoyable IPA. djd07 (14517) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange golden with a medium frothy white head. The aroma is a strong hop with floral notes and pine. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a smooth grapefruit with a sweet hop and pine with a nice bitter finish. Easy to drink great flavor, not overpowering in hops all around a very well done IPA from Bells.
