COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 oz. bottle. Poured a murky copper color. Sweet smelling aroma of hops and citrus. This is a well balanced beer! Obviously very hoppy, but with plenty of malts to balance it out. I’ll be drinking more of this in the future!

Almost like looks a Belgian wheat more than an IPA in a glass. Nice foamy head when poured, and fruity and hoppy taste. Overall just a good beer.

Has a great mix of centennial hops and other flavors..Definitely a top shelf IPA..Bells strives to make quality craft beer and produces well above most breweries..Pop the top on this ale as often as you can!

This beer had been hugely hyped but unfortunately it didn't live up to the up for me. It is a good beer, with a very mild hop characteristic and very smooth. But don't expect it to be a knock your socks off IPA. It's very tame but it will be hard to dislike, since there isn't any real standout feature about it.

Bottle poured in glass, orange cloudy appearance with little head, aroma is delightful, lots of hops, orange peel, grass and pine, taste is hop intense as well, not very complex in my opinion but well balanced, heavy bitter but abrupt, astringent finish, mid body

Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Aroma is bread, some caramel, with a bit of green hops, but overall it's mild. Taste starts sweet but with the solid malt undertones before a nice, long, bitter finish comes in. Overall the body is solid if just a bit on the thin side.

Perfect pour of golden brown color with perfect lacing. Great IPA bitter flavor without being overpowering. Love it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 Hop aroma on the nose. Delicious hop flavor with good malt structure. Well hidden 7.0% abv. Great full flavored balanced IPA.

Incredible balance, if just a bit short on complexity. Lusciously sweet and hoop at once, with citrus and tropical notes strongest. A real go to, though I don’t find it as much of a standout as most do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Drinking it at the moment...a really good IPA. Will recommend to anyone that likes IPA. I live in California so it’s not available here in the states. Had to order this online.
