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.

A very good balanced IPA. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 16, 2009
courtesy of Chris Beers - pours a cloudy orange colour under a huge foamy white head; fairly fruity hoppy nose (mango and apricots) with notes of fresh cream; quite soft mouthfeel and full-bodied; a robust but never aggressive bitterness takes control of the taste; moderately dry bitter and long fruity finish - balanced and robust; very well-made
