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.

Served on tap in a pint glass. Light orange with inch white head that dissolves only slightly. Nice citrus tones upfront. Very creamy mouthfeel with almost a biscuit-y aftertaste. Good body. I could definitely buy a 6 pack for the house of this brew. My first try from Bells and am very pleased.

A clean golden colored beer. Has a big fluffy bright white head, that leaves some nice lace.The aroma is very hoppy, citrusy (serious grapefuit character) with a hint of malt sweetness in the background. There is a sweetness to the hoppiness in the strat of the taste. Followed by a smoothing out with a gentle malt push in the middle. All finishes clean and well balanced.

I have had this beer time and time again. It’s a good “go to” beer, especially when you find a bar that doesn’t have a wide selection of beers. I drink this one a lot over at Golf 365. All the guys there really dig this stuff. It’s a good, standard IPA.

The beer smells like… like an IPA. Again, this beer doesn’t knock my socks off, but it does have a familiar and repeatable flavor. It smells like any other IPA you have had, and drinks like one too. It has a hint of carbonation on the front of the palate, spread itself thin on the tongue, and finishes smooth and wet. (I use that word a lot… wet.)

The aftertaste does stick around for a little while. One thing I did learn about this beer, here on 1001 Bottles, is the high ABV. I didn’t realize it was 7%. I always assumed it was a 5 or 6%. The beer is also readily available at pretty much any and every liquor store and grocery store you can find. So if you want to try it, it won’t be hard to find.

The label on the bottle has a fish on it… I am sure that has something to do with the city it is brewed in. Having only been to Michigan once, I can’t speak on behalf of the patrons… but it just seems like a place that would breed a lot of fishermen. That’s not a bad thing, but the fish on the bottle makes sense.

I like the beer… a lot. Of course, I like a lot of IPAs. I could and will drink this beer over and over again.

The hoppy aroma immediately brings to mind sugary flowers. Orange/tangerine notes rush forward as well. The color is dark gold with with a smaller white head. The mouthfeel is exceptionally full and delicious. The flavor is of course the main attraction. More citrus on the tongue, really kind of bitter but like any IPA. This is the IPA to measure against all others.
