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.

Appearance: Pours a light golden color. There appears to be some slight haze (like dust), which isn't uncommon in highly hopped beers. Stark white foam settles from 2 fingers to 1/2 cm around the rim.
Smell: Dank with sweet citrusy notes, maybe grapefruit. The smell doesn't really blow you away, but is very pleasant.
Taste: The bitterness grabs your palate right away. There is some hint of citrus, but the hops dominate.
Mouth-Feel: Thick enough to keep the hops on your tongue, yet carbonated enough to spread the flavors. Great mouthfeel.
Overall: Very enjoyable. This beer is a great example of an IPA. I don't really have much to say against it other than I wish it were a bit more complex (but that's if I'm looking for something to complain about).

Everything that Bells makes is probably outstanding. This beer is not the exception.

Pours a really light yellow beer. If you only look at it, you may think that you got a light beer, with light flavor. But that is not the case. This beer has a lot of flavor, and everything is perfectly balanced. It is a great ale.

Crisp, clean, golden smell and feel, with a well-balanced hop character. Centennial maybe? Each taste seemed to bring a new return to the malty underpinnings. For taste, the citrus was strong, almost piney in the finale.

Overall, a strong IPA with citrus flavors that hide the nearly 8% abv content. This is a drinker, day or night, meal or just posting up with a grille tool in hand, overlooking the pasture of animals that lurk nearby, or that overcrowded street.
