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.

Bottle Inspection: My bottle has a fish, trout maybe, on the label.

Aroma: Fresh fresh hops! Wet dripping goodness! A solid dose of coriander and lemon grass that accents the west coast citric hop taste perfectly. Wow that smells great!

Appearance: Hazy gold, thin to no head but a swirl will produce a nice white cap that rises and falls leaving lace in spots.

Flavor: Matches the aroma perfectly! Some mild grapefruit rind, orange juice, coriander and cola taste in the mix as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, firm carbonation, mild oil.

Overall Impression: Hits all the notes I like in an IPA. Citric (Amarillo maybe?) hops heavy on the aroma and taste side, not so much on the bittering, coriander and clean. Wow, I’ve drunk the kool-aid, I’ve seen the light. Bell’s rocks the house!

Hand carried back from Royal Liquors in Kansas City, MO.

Poured into the Sam Adams pint glass.

A - Pours a clear strong golden color with some orange hues. A nice white head of about 1 inch is presented with some chunky bubbles. The head is nice and sticky.

S - Some nice grainy hints are intermingled with the citric and grapefruit hints form the hops. There are some pine notes as the nose finishes off. Some flowery hints as well with the rest of the mellow nose.

T - The taste is very similar to the nose expect for that the taste is a little more vivid. Begins with some nice grain like malt character that is matched with some citric and mild grapefruit rind hints. Pretty simple IPA but still good. Although I like Bells HopSlam I feel like their year-round IPA is Amazing.

M & D - Light body with nice CO2 and a light and subdued feel. Refreshing with a slightly higher ABV.

A: Frothy head on top of a hazy orange body,
very rustic looking.

S: Great clean hop nose with hints of sweet hop
and alcohol.

T: Great hop bitterness paired with a sweet
balance of malts and alcohol. A bold citrus
flavor lingers but not in a undersireable way

M/D: Great carbonation with a sturdy body
neither syrupy nor thin. Fantastic with a
home made mozzarella and basil pizza.

An all around great beer. I drank this 1.23 gallon "party keg" of beer over five days and it never lost its carbonation. What a value when you can depend on the vessel to provide the proper carbonation. Great value!

Fresh from the tap in a 25oz. happy hour glass mug.

An old friend I just tried again for the first time since the unfortunate Bell's quality control problems. Thankfully, this time it did not taste like oxidized vegetable oil.

A nice copper-orange color with a wispy white head. The smell is enormously hoppy. Loads of citrus (zest), rose petals, pine, and floral flavor with a hoppy dry finish. Nice full mouthfeel and very drinkable.

Feloniousmonk, you truly are your brother's keeper. Many thanks for this brew.

Huge white, frothy head.

Hops smell crisp and fresh, like you're smelling them on the vine.

Taste threw me for a loop...but a good one. Tasted like vanilla and hops. Very sweet and incredibly tasty.

This beer was a pleasant surprise. I can't compare it to anything else. Possibly worth moving to Michigan to have access to. Try it if you can.
