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.

As perfect as an IPA as I could ask for; a very favorite. Strikes the perfect balance between hops and malt, retaining characters of both in flavor (far too many IPAs are stupidly hoppy, heavy-handed). Smooth and endlessly drinkable, my ideal session brew. Perfect head, beautiful color. The benchmark against which I judge other IPAs, and indeed, other beers in general.

I'll say it this way: it's the only beer that I'm offering at my wedding next spring :)

Finally got my hands on this while in PA for my cousin's wedding.

Poured from the bottle into my duval tulip. Has a nice dark amber body with a slight off white 2 finger head which left nice lacing down the side of the glass.

Aroma - Lots of pine and citrus flavors coming through on the nose, some of the malt makes its presence shown.

Taste - Hops from the word go, this is a very complex brew. Lots of piney and citrus up front, and the hop bitterness combating the smooth sweet malt. Makes for a great combination of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium, alcohol notes are hidden well, but adds to the wonderful flavor of it. carbonation is great.

Overall - A very solid IPA at a nice ABV. What a great beer to have year around. I can't wait to pick up more of it.

This is your classic IPA, along with the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Though I love hop heavy beers, what I love about this beer is that it is very good without having to be a typical West Coast IPA. The flavors are very unique, but familiar when you open a bottle and take that first sip.

Not only that, 2 of these won't knock you out. I wouldn't say it is sessionable, but delicious. I can't contemplate how the Stone IPA can garner a higher score than this.

Love IPAs, but do not find this IPA particularly enjoyable.

For perspective, I very much enjoy Cigar City's Jai Alai and Ballast Point's Sculpin, and have recently been drinking a fair amount of
Sweetwater IPA.

The nose and flavor profile are very one-dimensional and muddled, with a strange off-note that
reminds me of roasted peanuts. The finish is very dry.

I wanted to like/ enjoy this offering from Bell's, but didn't.

love this beer for what it is. just cause you can buy it on the shelf doesn't mean you shouldn't. One of my favorite IPA's.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 8/27 so just over a month old. Poured into a snifter.

A- pours a nice amber with good clarity, small white head dissipates into web by lacing.

S- Pine, grass, guava fruit and pineapple, slight toffee/ carmel aromas from the malt.

T- the aromas come through quite a lot in the taste. assertively hopped with a sweet malt base fort some balance. Hops cut through quite a bit though, and they last for a while.

M- perfect carbonation for the style. medium body

O- Great brew. got this in a trade, and I will seek it out in the future. This beer is exactly what I like in an IPA
