Batch 10197, 12 days old according to the batch finder on Bells' website. Fresy fresh, so no excuses. This is an old standby, so time for a review.
Pours a gourgeous golden yellow with just the right amount of little white bubbles (carbonation) that hang on for a while. Nice looking IPA, minimal haze.
Sweet flowers with some tropically influenced (mango?) citrus on the nose. I usually shy away from floral IPAs, but this works really well. The sweetness is stronger than usual. The pine isn't strong.
Tastes are consistent with the nose. Floral sugars (what I imagine nectar from a flower to taste like), wrapped with some mango citrus, with just a bit of pine. Not much resin. Bitterness in check. The sweetness is light, it's not syrupy or thick. Clean and crisp, 12 days old helping that. No buttery notes.
Mouthfeel is perfect for the style. ABV in my IPA sweet spot.
Quite a well crafted IPA. I generally prefer more enamel peeling pine and resin, but that's personal preference. I have always enjoyed drinking this beer. It's a good gateway beer for non-craft people too, have converted a few with this one.

Bought a six pack in Niagara Falls, USA for $10.95.
A - Nice dark amber thick white head. Good retention.
S - Slight citrus and pine. A little malt. Much less aroma than I expected.
T - Mild hops flavours and some mild malt sweetness. This beer is incredibly well-balanced and the alcohol is almost unnoticeable.
M - Very smooth and light.
O - Fantastic beer. Great stuff.
