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.

I was primarily a lager drinker until recently because I was introduced to some bad IPA's in the past and had predetermined they would all be bitter. Having said that I especially liked this beer for it's underwhelming Hops to malt ratio.

Great color. Very nice IPA smell, not overly citrus.

Taste is just what I want in a beer. Easy to drink, no lingering bitterness.

Clear golden under a thin white cap of head. Nose is wonderful with earthy grassy hops, and a bit of floral resin, atop a nice caramel sweetness. Smooth and full balanced flavor, with gentle caramel biscuity sweetness, light bitterness, a touch of grass, a little floral resin, and a kiss of grapefruit rind. A wonderfully balanced and tasty brew that’s tantalizingly easy to drink down.

I gave this "classic" a shot at Rye House in Chelsea. Must be fresh since Bell's distributed to New York for the very first time this week. It kind of reminded me of an everyday IPA that is not too over the top with bitterness of the hop.

Poured a hazy goldish orange color with a small head. Decent not great lacing.

The smell was rather subdued. A light floral note with some citrus.

Citrus (orange) and pine but not too much of either (which is a good thing these days when IPA's seem to have hops for hops sake). The malt has a touch of sweetness. The beer had a watery taste to it though.

Medium bodies and a touch dry. The alcohol is well hidden.

Nothing from this beer stood out but it was still rather good. I guess the reputation from this beer left me expecting more. Although I do appreciate the single centennial hop not crushing my palate.
