Notes/Commercial Description:
An India Pale Ale style well suited for adventurous trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and an incredibly floral aroma.

Review taken from notes(mid March 2013)

12 oz brown bottle with a fantastic label of a fish what I'm calling a trout with a hook close by. Makes me instantly want warm spring weather. Great label! Poured this into a nonic style pint glass.

A - Amberish orange to amberish golden. Very beautiful color. Head sits with a frothy style and subdues to a nice splotchy ring of lace providing pretty good stick.

S - Floral aroma with Flashes of citrusy and resinous hop character. Good biscuity yeast whiffs in the background while the malt steadiness does it's part in balancing the aroma.

T - A shot of oranges. Somewhat sweet and juicy with the citrus character very much present. Floral and Citrusy hops collide with a wall of biscuit malt and a slap of fantastic yeast flavors conspire before the bitterness has even a chance to hit full force. The balance is deservingly bragged upon. Finish is neat and balanced with a creamy finish.

M - balance is everything in this IPA. Medium-full bodied but thick and smooth. Creative and complex, but balanced on scales most people wouldn't dream of knowing to exsist. Its not the perfect mouthfeel, but damn is it working class and done right. A very easy drinking IPA.

O - west coast ipa's punch you in the mouth with a big hop profile and an ibu # through the roof. English styles give you a dose of malt and settle for less than what a hop head really needs. It seems to me some of these real good Midwestern/Great Lakes area breweries knock it out of the park when talking a sit down and drink, everyday IPA. This one is a prime example of what this specific region does better than anyone and it's a hallmark creation of what Bell's does best. Anyone looking for that go to IpA when say the next BIG seasonal hasnt quite hit the shelves then this is the one. Plus there is a freaking fish about to be slayed by some Midwesternman after a hard days work. No he's not shown, but you can imagine. This is one fish everyone needs to catch. It's good stuff.
