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.

This is the beer that started me down the path to hop-head ruination. Centennial hops and lots of them. Floral/citrus notes, lots of IBUs and packs a real alcohol wollop. And that aroma!

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 This is a top shelf IPA. Hops galore - pine, citrus, good bitters, good malt thickness. Awesome brew

12 oz. single bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville, Florida. FINALLY, BELLS BREWERY ARRIVES IN FLORIDA! Pours a hazy amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is nice with citrus and fruit tones. Taste is amazing, I noticed a unique aftertaste that is, what, fruity? This rocks. Thanks to Total Wine for bringing this to Jacksonville!

From bottle : Pours a hazy apricot color with a half finger of white rocky head, that dies quick but leaves great lacing. Aroma is wonderful, fruits, citrus and pineapple, flowery hops, it is very nice. Taste is hoppy, with nice bitterness, also has a great balance with the malts to make it incredible drinkable. Medium bodied with a smooth palate that is lively towards the end. One of the best IPAs by far.

Wow this IPA has got to be my hands down favorite. Nose is fruity and hoppy but not dry. The taste is sweet and hoppy and I get a bit of cluster hops in my mouth. Taste malty but almost perfectly balanced. What a great beer, bells has done it again. Thanks Kryptic!

A very good IPA. Mine was a little sharp, could have used a little aging for a couple months.

Bottle. Pour is golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma is flowers, some citrus and a hint of pine. Great balance in the flavor, rounded out with a nice amount of bitterness. This is a classic IPA in my opinion, don’t know why I don’t get it more often.

Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 (bottle) Pours light cloudy amber with a nice soapy white head. Aroma is wonderful, I could smell it even when my nose was some distance from my snifter. Aroma consisted of a large dose of pineapple, nice orange with some grapefruit too. Taste was lacking somewhat, but there was some caramel there, but mostly fruit grapefruit and orange, with a nice finish of bitter grapefruit peel. Have revisited this beer often and it never disappoints.

sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - DEC 7, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2010 [Bottle] Pours slightly hazy orange with a small lingering white head. Huge fruity aroma of pineapple, lemon and grapefruit with a bit of malt in there as it warmed. Taste is a little bitter up front, followed by a nice maltiness that the citrus hops blend smoothly into. Could stand to be a little thicker and the finish could be a bit longer too. A very nice beer though.

sunevdj (4144) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2007
Drewbeerme, thankyou! Pours a light amber with a foamy head. Hint of lacings and cloudyness. Nice flowery hoppy smell. Bitter with lots of hopsaromas. Pink grapefruit also some sweet berry-like hops aromas. Hint of caramel hidden soemwhere behind the loads of hops... Just enough to balance it. Medium bodied. Light carbonation. Bitter hoppy finish. Very yummy, Indeed!
