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.

Botte. Large frothy head with excellent lacing. Amber color, very cloudy. This is the Cadillac of IPA’s. Plenty of hoppy flavor, but it is the crispness and drinkability that make this beer one of my favorites. Makes me want to take a road trip to Kalamazoo. Bells hit this one right on the heald.

Bottle. Frothy head and rose golden color. Beautiful aroma and wonderful palate and almost perfect spice. Lots of hops but never too bitter. A benchmark IPA to judge others by.

the floral hops are augmented by a fruity spiciness that is quite outstanding - it really diversifies the taste

12 ounce bottle (thanks mom!) Pours a nice amber color with a thick foamy off-white head. Leaves a good bit of lacing down the glass. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Taste is similar, a little spicy too. Smooth drinking. I could easily have several of these. Great IPA.

Pours deceptively clear, & finishes off with almost an amber, which is odd for the hop content. Very citrus-y overtones at first pour. Very light/crisp for the well-rounded taste.

Pours a hazy honey colour with particulates and a large frothy off white head. Aroma of floral & some citrus hops and a malt outline. Initial taste is mostly floral hops and hints of citrus just like the aroma. Overlaying hidden sweet malts with a tidal wave of bitter hops for the finish. Crisp. Thinner body than expected. Slight Lacing of the glass with some head retention. Good Palate duration.

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 – 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.
