Look: A clear pale gold with a nice active white head. Good active carb keeps the head up nice and a sticky head gives this beer nice lacing

Smell: Burst of pine hops, with a nice citrus kick, and medium sticky malt makes this one great smelling beer.

Taste: Big pungent pine hops on the attack followed by a nice citrus zest and a big malt back bone really balances this beer out nicely. Blurs the line of a IPA and a hoppy pale ale (if there even is one) a it has a really nice hop presence that blends really well with the malt body. Tasty stuff.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a that is thirst quenching and big at the same time. Surprisingly light on its feet for how much flavor it puts out. Balanced bitter and no hint of ABV. Very drinkable.

Overall: A really solid brew from bells. This beer is super drinkable and balanced making this beer an easy go to. I could see myself picking this beauty any time!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Thick head, off white from a 32 oz growler. Surprisingly clear given the huge amount of hop oil that must be in the glass. Pale cedar color, sheets of good lacing, and the beer stays covered all the way down. Slight to no carbonation visible.

Great nose. Light pale and caramel malt. Bread, citrus and grapefruit skin. Clean but lightly fruity yeast. Toasted grains and a touch of earth and big citrus hop blast.


Taste is so well balanced. Delicious broad caramel malt. Toast and bread crust. A smooth progressively building hop bomb. A mild undercurrent of pine with a heavy overlay of grapefruit. Finish is dry, short, and hop oily. A grapefruit dryness lingering.

Feel is frothy and smooth. Crisp and quenching. Weight is just right, with no watery qualities. Smooth, lightly creamy carbonation. Highly drinkable.

A great beer to revel in the joys of craft brewing, and what it brings to the enjoyment of beer.
