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.

Got this one on a trip to a friends wedding out in Minnesota.

Poured with almost no head and only moderate lacing. Beer is a bright amber color with hints of red. Carbonation is strong.

I didn't have a proper glass to pour this one into, but the nose seems very subdued. This is definitely an IPA, but there is a strong malt backbone here as well, the nose is not overly pungent of hops, but almost a warm biscuity aroma.

This beer tastes good! From the aroma, I expected the hops in this to be fairly subdued, boy was I wrong! This beer is hoppy and hop forward. The initial flavor is of medium bitter hops and this quickly fades to a more lasting bitter hop flavor profile. The hop bitterness is well balanced with the sweeter, malt background, but this beer is truly hoppy.

Overall this beer is excellent; I only wish I could buy it back in Maine! I was suprised to find that this beer is 7% abv, the alcohol is well hidden, I certainly wouldn't have guessed that the % was this high. Well done Bells!

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.
