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.

4.28/5  rDev +0.2%

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter

Appearance: Copperish/light brown. Lots of carbonation and minimal head retained throughout drinking.

Smell: Slight lemon and orange peel with toffee malt. Even some alcohol.

Taste: Pretty complex and balanced. Citrusy orange peel leads to some spice and alcohol prevalence. Sweet malty back end/with some slightly bitter apple? Given the floral and herbal scent, I thought it'd be fruitier tasting. Kind of grainy on the back end too. Interesting.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp and on the light medium side. Drinkable too.

Overall: Very enjoyable beer from Bell's and I'd say it's reasonably priced too where I buy mine. I like its drinkability and subtle complexities. Still tasting different things every time I drink it. Definite recommend.

Bottle 8/7/2012… reviewed on 8/28/2012

A: pours a dark orange-brown with a solid 1.5 fingers worth of frothy pure white head formation. Big bubbles stick to the sides as the lacing is very strong. Held up to the light the body turns a golden color. Moderate carbonation, moderate transparency.

S: high amounts of orange peel citrus notes and floral hops, and quite grainy. I’m actually surprised by the lack of complexity in this one as I was expecting more fruit and tropical notes.

T: I pick up on a big biscuit character, bitter pine hops, some citrus, a very slight touch of grapefruit, lots of grain and mild touch of alcohol. Balance is slightly off in my opinion

M: crisp finish is pleasant, leaves a moderate hop aftertaste on the palate that may be too much for some, but it's enjoyable. Medium bodied, this one goes down quick.

O: Unfortunately, I’m disappointed in this one. I was expecting a bit more from Bell’s on this especially with such great reviews and it leaves me wondering if I'm missing something here. I personally think there is too much grain which throws this one off. The hops are great, but there is a lack of tropical fruits to help the balance of this brew.

4.15/5  rDev -2.8%

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Packaged 6/22/2012, so still pretty fresh.

Appearance: pale orange hue with a light haze and a light effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy white foam. Light, but nice!

Smell: hugely aromatic with a very good floral, lightly earthy hop aroma, and a sweet malt backbone. I like it.

Taste: hop flavor is much earthier than the aroma. Slowly, a more citrusy hop character comes up from underneath; I like the dynamism. All of this is on top of a good malt character, which is sweet and complements the hops quite well. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a very good level of carbonation and a good, creamy texture. Wonderful.

Overall: this beer is very tasty and seems very well-crafted. I feel like I could quaff loads of this stuff.
