12oz fish-labeled bottle poured into snifter glass. Light orange color with thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus (orange, pineapple, peach) and floral hops. Taste is almost fruity, nicely balanced with sweet malt. Medium body, some lingering finish. Very fruity IPA. I like!

Beautiful cloudy golden color with a nice thick foamy head. Taste is straight forward IPA with medium to strong taste if hoops, followed with hints of citrus, pine and spruce. Great tribute to the great UP north river after which it was named. One of the great beers of Michigan!

What is there left to say? The once and future king. If I was a jack-ass, Iíd say itís a little creamy for my taste up front, but what do I know? My only real beef is that itís too heavy for an extended summer canoe fishing trip. I also appreciate that Bellís doesnít churn out 50 different versions of this (looking at you, Ballast Point Sculpin.)

Pours a light amber with mild white head. Scent is hops and citrus with malt undertones. Taste is similar with prominent hops early on but nice biscuit notes involved. Medium body and a crisp dry finish. Truly one of the better IPAs.

Bellís is now available in the area so how about it? A grand pour, all cloudy orange and white on top. The smell gives great promise, grapefruit and pine needles. A drink delivers a restrained hoppiness and citrus, perhaps a touch of dough. Strong persistent bitterness, maybe my favorite quality from the brew.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thick fluffy off white head. The aroma is very floral and grapefruit. The flavor is once again full of grapefruit and some breadiness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
To old to rate...but..Cloudy orange with creamy head. Citrusy nose. Sweet and medium bodied with a relatively hoppy grapefruity finish. The mouthfeel is light and creamy.
