One of the best IPA’s I have had, but what else would you expect from Bells?
Strong hops taste, not so strong hops aroma (as compared to some others), but still good aroma. The top rating on this is evidence.
This beer had been hugely hyped but unfortunately it didn't live up to the up for me. It is a good beer, with a very mild hop characteristic and very smooth. But don't expect it to be a knock your socks off IPA. It's very tame but it will be hard to dislike, since there isn't any real standout feature about it. cervezadrinker (75) - MEXICO - DEC 4, 2017
Bottle poured in glass, orange cloudy appearance with little head, aroma is delightful, lots of hops, orange peel, grass and pine, taste is hop intense as well, not very complex in my opinion but well balanced, heavy bitter but abrupt, astringent finish, mid body miloszd (71) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 24, 2017

Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Aroma is bread, some caramel, with a bit of green hops, but overall it's mild. Taste starts sweet but with the solid malt undertones before a nice, long, bitter finish comes in. Overall the body is solid if just a bit on the thin side. smeckert (10) - - NOV 18, 2017
Perfect pour of golden brown color with perfect lacing. Great IPA bitter flavor without being overpowering. Love it

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 Hop aroma on the nose. Delicious hop flavor with good malt structure. Well hidden 7.0% abv. Great full flavored balanced IPA. eallenbrown (35) - - NOV 11, 2017
Incredible balance, if just a bit short on complexity. Lusciously sweet and hoop at once, with citrus and tropical notes strongest. A real go to, though I don’t find it as much of a standout as most do.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Drinking it at the moment...a really good IPA. Will recommend to anyone that likes IPA. I live in California so it’s not available here in the states. Had to order this online. gregwilsonstl (2687) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2017 Not much one can say about this gem , that hasn't been said by thousands of other people. This beer is outstanding. Delicious hop flavor that is well balanced out with the malts. This by far is one of the best IPA products offered by any brewery. Bells is an amazing brewery that continues to be a leader in the biz.
