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.

bottled; nice crisp taste hops; not much balance but par for the IPA course; nice hoppy smell; very clean mouthfeel; not a lot to distinguish it from other top shelf IPAs - hop devil, stone’s, etc. but excellent company

12oz Bottle, thanks Steve! Excellent Stuff! Love the hops! Bitter but well balanced IPA/APA. The finish is long, earth/grass. So drinkable, for a big beer. Very impressive, and a great example of a beer style that I love.

12oz. bottle - pours cloudy, unfiltered orange/gold with a big, frothy white head. Aroma is very grapefruity, piney and extremely floral. All hops. Flavour is equally hoppy, a little more earthy/grassy than the aroma but still packs a big hit of citrus. Bitterness follows, but this is a very smooth and very well balanced IPA, highly drinkable. Spicy and crisp in the finish with a lingering hop aftertaste. Lovely beer.

Bottle. Aroma piney and floral hops just spring out likes its mid spring in bloom. Poures a golden amber. Flavor is hoprific, lots of em in there no doubt a touch of toasted malt. Palate is creamy yet thin and the finish is crisp hoppiness. Overall, I can’t believe I’ve passed over this for so long. Is there a beer that Larry and the crew make bad?

kinda cloudy, decent looking head. looked syrupy coming out. apricot and floral aroma. light bodied, smoother than i was expecting. tastes very good, but the after taste kind of kills it, it’s almost like drinking a stale fruit roll up. like the smell, apricot and hoppy in taste.

Bottle. Very wonderful aroma, pine, grapefruit, citrus, fresh and clean. Dark golden with an apricot hue, foam head very fulfilling and nice sticky lacing. Thick and chewy yet very sessionable when needed, great hoppy flavor and overall my favorite.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Fantastic beer, great balance, I absolutely love the hopping ;-). Wife drinks budlight and even she likes this one. One of the few beers I stockpile. Now that I can find it in the metal minikegs I’m a happy camper .. of all Bell’s beers, this is the hardest to find in stock here in SWVA.

gabbama (210) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Strong hop aroma, but with a hint of sweetness. Flavor follows suit. Just a touch of sweetness with a lot of hops. Very good IPA.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden. Great floral aroma. The hops are what this beer is all about, you can taste the hops all the way through. Finishes very clean. At 7% alcohol, this beer is rounded out. One of the finest IPA’s I’ve had.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 batch 7951. hazy orange shade of brown with a fluffy short lived off white head. aroma is brown sugar/caramel, citrus and piney hops and some fresh pineapple. flavor is well balanced...not too sweet and the hops are there for sure but not prickly. aroma carries over to the flavor with the pineapple showing up again. hoppy dryness on the finish and long lingering aftertaste. creamy carbonation/mouth feel. 7/4/8/4/16/3.9

9223. really malty and caramel-y up front. bitter and drying on the back and finish. crisp, extremely well balanced and terribly drinkable. 7/4/8/4/17/4.0
