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.

Every beer judged solely on its merits. But do you have to admit this is the ugliest label you’ve ever seen? Like some half-eaten fish floating in an e. coli laced Michigan swamplake.

STYLE: American IPA

ABV: 7%

LOOK: Hazy, thin pennies, a wee bit watery. I’m not sure it’s strong enough to hold a meaningful head, even if it wanted to.

NOSE: Fruity sourdough and buttered popcorn. More fruit than hops, more malt than expected. Very decent.

MOUTH: Fickle beer, maybe deceptive. The start, it’s real nice. Sugared grapefruit and almond cake. But that gives way, a little too soon. Acerbic, canned paint, hand soap. Drink this one quickly.

I've had this many times on tap, but this is the first from a bottle...

A - A finger's worth of perfectly level slightly fizzy orange tinged head... Solid retention... The color is a medium gold with a slight orange hue... A good bit of moderate paced carbonation...

S - The nose can be detected with out even bringing the glass to your nose... Fresh pineapple... Some grapefruit notes... Orange zest... Some light floral notes... These sit a top a strong malty base of crackers and caramel... Very appealing...

T - The malt base is first on the palette... Bread crust... Crackers... Light caramel... A very mix of hops... Mostly citrusy in the form of pineapple, grapefruit, and oranges... There's also some piney and floral notes as well... Wonderful balance... The finish is slightly bitter and lingers in a very delectable way...

M - Medium bodied... Even... Consistent... Smooth... Limited carbonation... Simple, but quite effective...

D - A top notch American IPA... My personal favorites within the categories are those with balance and a strong malty base and this one fits that characterization perfectly... Highly recommended... Something I will need to pick up in bottled form on a more regular basis... Possibly the best that Bell's has to offer...
