Yeah this is a top notch IPA...Bells does it AGAIN. Beer pours a slightly cloudy golden/orange color with a medium white head. Aromas are hops, pine, and more hops! Flavor is delicious. Hoppy, faint hints on honey, light malt notes, perfect carbonation. Best IPA I have ever had I do believe.

shrubber85 (10887) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Bottle. Lime, tangerine, and pine hops aroma. Hazy orange-amber with moderate head and nice lacing. Sligntly sweet tangerine flavor quickly followed by moderate pine hops. Strange finish - after swallowing get a watery slightly metallic taste with pine hops returning a few seconds later. Nice that its flavor isnít the typical orange grapefruit.

hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2002
The aroma is of hop blossoms, FTD flowers, fir trees and freshly ground black pepper. Hazy, deep golden hue with a large, rocky white head. Mostly, but not fully diminishing with great lacing. The flavor is that of bitter juniper berries and pine/fir with just a suggestion of the heavy malt and high gravity alcohol. Full-bodied with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Long, citrisy, bone-dry finish with a woodsy, gin-laden whisper at the far end. Very nice IPA.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Bottle @ home, courtesy of bushmat1. Thanks Matt! Glowing, light orange appearance with a white head. Orange/grapefruit citrusy, lightly piney hoppy nose thatís almost like an orange creamsicle. Mildly bitter, moderate orange and grapefruit citrusy hoppy, floral, moderately, sweet pale malty flavor. Sweet, citrus hoppy aftertaste. Excellent!

nice floral hop aroma and a sturdy malt backbone make this one very well balanced and tasty ipa. stands out from the crowd, but is not among my personal favorites. i DO wish it was available here though. not a hop bomb, but thereís enough there to take notice. crisp, clean, dry bitter finish."

deyholla (10444) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2011 Firkin at Ashleyís. Poured a cloudy amber gold with an off-white head. Aroma was full of hops bring out a pleasant pine note, while there is an undertone of fruit, a bit of apple perhaps. The flavor was deliciously balance with pine notes as well the slightest sweetness under the bitterness.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Thank you Yngwie for sharing this great beer! It has been on my wish-list, and Iím not disappointed! Itís warm orange with a nice head and a fruity, hoppy aroma with loads of citrus, tangerine being dominant. The flavour is nice, harmonic and delicious with lots of fruit/citrus, again tangerine is the most dominant. It also has nice caramel notes that balances the bitterness nicely. Itís very charming and harmonic - yummi!!!! 2444

Pours deep straw colored. 5 for appearance, definitely. Excellent head and lacing. Super hoppy, citrusy, floral, fruity aroma. 10 for aroma. Tastes very hoppy, with nice malt base. Finishes very smooth, with hints of hops, malt, citrus, and perfumy florals, with some Belgian white alishness and sweet candi sugar and fine chardonnay qualities. Super complex. Great beer. Bells is in my top 10 brewers of all time. My second 5.0 rating. Perhaps I put too much emphasis on complexity, but I cannot deduct any points on this one. Awesome!!
