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.

everything and more that i ask for in an IPA. the smell of this beer is a direct punch in the nose of hops. tasting revealed fresh floral and citrus hops that rested on the back of my tongue. one of my favorite IPAs.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 There are many IPAs I have tasted, but there a good dozen of extremely high quality Ė this is one of them. Lots of hops in this brew and they stay in the back of the throat, which is a good sign of an excellent IPA. The ale pours a copper cloudy color with the full citrus flavor of the freshly picked hops. This is just really great beer. This is a wonderful beer to surprise a big-time HopDevil fan with. Cheers to the Bells Brewery!

Huge floral citrus aroma. Smooth mouthfeel ending in crispy resiny hop finish. Very refreshing and quaffable.

My absolute favorite beer, simply a great IPA. Wonderful fruity-floral aroma. Surprisingly high in alcohol for as crisp and smooth as it is. Holds its head well, and has a brilliant orange-amber color.

Great beer, a new personal favorite. Great spicy floral aroma, flavor perhaps not as complex as possible with only some hops, but overall a teriffic beer that has a great crisp taste, and reminds me why i love beer.

Golden body with slight haze (possibly from chilling it), big white head, nice floral nose. Surprisingly thin body for 7%, subtle hoppiness, very refreshing, tasty, nice, great hop character. Hides the alcohol exceptionally well. I wish I didnít have to drive to Ohio to get this one.

Itís very hard not to give this a perfect score. Quite possibly the perfect example of what I expect from an IPA.

As far as an IPA is concerned I was not impressed overall. I went into this beer with alot of hype and it drastically failed to live up. At best this is a decent session beer.

Pretty hazy orange with a small white head. Sweet citrus aroma. Very balanced sweet vs citrus hops taste with a mild bitter finish. Refreshing.
