A few years later with a bit more educated palate and 6+ clone recipe homebrew attempts later. Still one of my favorite IPAs.
Impressive clarity compared to most other IPAs.
Impressive floral and citrus aromas and taste.
So good I used it as a reference for my house homebrew recipe of an all Centennial IPA.
FYI, this is one of my early BA reviews, so forgive my limited knowledge and review skills to date. I may choose to re-review this one later w/ a more educated beer style knowledge, palate and vocabulary....
I will re-review this one when I can, I now know how to describe it more appropriattely as of 3/6/2009....
This review was based off a tulip style glass pour.
ABV = 7.0, calories = 202 ps
APP-5.0 Dark golden orange cloudy color. Large head with impressive retention. It's great to whiff that hoppy aroma for the entire beer. I have drank many a sixers of this stuff and te head is so ready for action it froths out the top once you pop the cap. Quite fun I must say, a sort of volcano style IPA.
SMELL-4.0 Floral hopiness. HOPS HOPS HOPS, minor hints of citrus...
TASTE-4.0 Less bitterness for IPA in my experience so far. Bells did a nice job on this brew. Floral/citrus type of hoppiness, not overly bitter like some...
DRINKABILITY-4.0 A Hophead delight!. More on the floral side of hoppiness, not bitter - right on in my book.

From a 12 oz bottle to a pint glass.
A: hazy gold with a thin one finger head that breaks quickly but leaves behind some lovely lacing and some islands of foam.
S: sweet malts, malts and piney and citrus hops.
T: wow...very well balanced. All the nose comes through and there is very little bitterness. Maltiness on the tail.
M: medium body and carbonation. This beer is very easy to enjoy.
O: this one had so much hype around it, I wasn't sure what to think. I enjoyed the beer after a tough day at the office, and it turned the day around. It is balanced and enjoyable and just a great example of the style. I will get more.
