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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a magic hat keg glass.

A - Hazy but bright orange amber. Not surprising. Little head but it sticks around forever and leaves a lot of lacing.

S - It's actually pretty muted on the nose. Predominantly fruity/floral hops on the nose but it's not very strong.

T - VERY low bitterness for an IPA. Surprised at how mild the bitterness is, actually. The citric and piney hops are there but not overwhelmingly so, countered deftly by the roasty malt. That is one hell of a sessionable IPA.

M - Light on the carbonation and not heavy at all on the tongue. This beer goes down so easy I'm tempted to just crack open another and keep drinking.

Overall - 7% ABV? Sure don't taste like it! This one is subtle, fresh, strikes a killer balance of hops and malt, and finishes really clean. Unlike most IPA's that send you wave upon crashing wave of hop flavor and bitterness, this one drinks so easy that its 7% ABV will sneak up on you if you're not careful. A great choice both as an introductory IPA and an everyday brew.

A: Poured from a 12-oz bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a nice, muddy yellow color with a cream-colored head that dissipates quickly.

S: I get a lot of roasted malts in the nose, with a piney twinge. There are also some citrus notes, but I can't place the scent. Overall, it's quite a pleasant smell.

T: The flavor of malt hit me right up front. A nice, dry finish polishes this beer off.

M: Very smooth in the mouth. The carbonation bubbles nicely on the tongue and the rich flavor of malt makes you crave the next sip. This is one I could have consistently throughout the evening.

O: Another superlative beer from Bell's in Kalamazoo, MI. This, along with their Kalamazoo Stout, guarantees that they will have at least one loyal customer for many years to come.
