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.

12oz bottle <packaged 1/23/14> poured in to a glass beer mug.

This beer was a hazy copper color with a thin head of white foam that remained as a layer leaving more lace than a Victoria's Secret fashion show.
Aroma and Taste had lots of floral and piney hops with a mid swallow citrus bite leading to a dray & bitter finish.
Goes down smooth and easy for the barely noticable abv.
Pretty damn close to perfect. No matter what Larry Bell thinks about NY, he makes a bunch of fine beers and this motherfucker is one of my favorites from his lame ass state*

*NOTE: no offense meant to most folks from Michigan. Just Larry Bell & Spartan fans!

A: Golden, straw in color with white lacing in my tulip glass

S: Soft sweet-smelling hoppy nose. Centennial hops?

T: A nice bitterness leads into a delicious honey-like sweetness. Finishes with some hoppy-piney-citrusy tastiness.

M: Great medium body, perfect for an IPA

O: An American classic, I love this beer & brewing clones of it.

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

A: deep golden ale, not quite clear, ivory head a few fingers high, smattering of lace trailed behind, persistent filmy cap

S: flowers and rain, chewy grains, notes of citric pith

T: crisp and fresh malt bill supports a gorgeous hop array, bringing many floral and citric powers to the fore

M: crisp and tight, clean and light; moderate bitterness and superior drinkability

O: top-tier IPA action here - glad Bell's has found its way to Long Island - the flavors and smells and feel are fairly style-typical, but there is something that happened in the execution of this beer that produced a product of exceptional quality. In terms of craftsmanship, it draws comparisons to the best of the rest.
