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.

On tap. Pours a clear light golden amber with a small head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is sugar cookie with a lot of grapefruit and some orange as well. There are also some light floral notes. The initial taste is sweet with some sugar cookie and a bunch of grapefruit and a bit of orange as well as a bit of caramel. The finish has a mild bitterness as well as quite a bit of sweetness. Medium-light bodied. Relatively low carbonation. A bit more sweetness than I would like, but a pretty solid IPA, especially for one that is regularly available.

12oz bottle dated 5/14/2013, poured into a Bell's snifter straight out of the fridge and consumed today 6/7/2013. Thanks to Benish for giving me a spare bottle- have had this many times in the past but haven't had any recently to review.

Aroma: Lots of floral hops and a bit of pine. Maybe a little citrus. And there is a bit of caramel and toffee, but its mostly the floral hops. Smells very nice. (4.25)

Colour: Nice looking IPA. Pours an hazy dark burnt orange, perhaps copper, body with a nice thick 1cm white head that dissipates into a thick bubbly collar and thin film in the center of the beer. Lacing is solid, not all there but definitely is an appetizing beer. (4.25)

Flavour: I get a lot of floral hop flavour in the beginning, with a small bit of caramel, toffee and even a little bit of graham cracker coming through. At the end there's a good bit of piney bitterness that reminds me I'm drinking an IPA. Tasty beer for sure. (4.25)

Mouthfeel: Lighter bodied for an IPA, well carbonated and leaves me with a wet, piney and resinous finish. Not bad, it's a very refreshing IPA that doesn't burn my liver up. The aftertaste is definitely bitter pine, but its not overwhelmingly bitter- it sticks around for a short while but doesn't destroy my palate. Very nice. (4.25)

Overall: Well-crafted floral IPA that has just enough malt backbone that it isn't a one-dimensional floral hop bomb. Easy to drink, refreshing. Bells' continues to do their excellent brewing and this is one of their better beers (Black Note remains my total favorite, obviously). (4.25)
