Slow pour into a standard pint glass.

A: A very light copper and fairly cloudy. Plenty of carbonation bubbles raising to the head. One finger of dense light biege and very dense head that was long-lasting.

S: Strong grapefruit and citrusy aroma with a touch of pine and floral slipping through. Just a touch of sweetness, too.

M: Medium body with some carbonation and a dry finish.

T: A Grapefruit and citrus bitterness in a very big hops blast. Again there is a little pine and floral after the intitial citrus rush. And just enough malt backbone to to keep the bitterness from becoming overwhelming.

O: The upfront hops blast really gets your attention. The grapefruit and citrusy bite come in a big rush and then blend with the pine and floral flavors adding interesting layers. This is another great offering from Bells that is sure to please hop heads.

Another fabulous offering from Bell's. I consider this the flagship beer, not Amber Ale. There are so many things about this beer that are right. It pours a sturdy, healthy head that takes a while to dissipate. Taste is unbelievable. Great hop tast but still balanced. It is the Hopslam Jr. Fantastic!

Born on date of 3/19/2012. 12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A- pours a nice gold/copper/orange color with two inches of nice foam. Foam retreats slowly leaving really good-looking lacing.

S- a floral hop aroma with light citrus and light pine. Not very aromatic at all.

T- Very drinkable, reminds me of New Belgium Ranger IPA. It has hoppy bitterness mixed with orange peel and grapefruit. The finish it orange slice candy.

M- Very smooth. Bubbles hit the front hard but are diappear completely at halfway across the tongue, leaving a cask-conditioned feel on the swallow. Very well done.

Overall- Wish I had six of these instead of just one. A great product. Surprised to see the Bros hit it so low.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

A: Clear, golden to amber. Great active carbonation. Forms a white head, approx. 1 1/2 fingers high, which sticks around. Fair amount of lacing remains.

S: Definitely not an in-your-face hoppy aroma. I get pine with a little bit of fruit (pineapple, orange rind). There is a background of malt aroma here also.

T: The hops come first, and the resinous & piney aspects dominate. The malt flavor shows up in the middle, and some citrus aspects near the end. Bitterness lingers just a bit and masks a mild alcohol presence.

M: Really nice. Good carbonation but smooth.

O: I've had this brew several times, but am just getting around to giving a proper review. It's good, no real complaints. But nothing outstanding, nothing to separate it from the host of other American IPAs out there.
