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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass

A- Pours a golden orange with a 1" frothy head

S- So much citrusy hoppy goodness. It smells like an orange grapefruit hop juice. omnomnom

T- Remember the smell? That's what it tastes like, and it's awesome! I love all the citrus taste, I wish I had an orange wedge to go with this. It puts Blue Moon to shame!

M- Slightly creamy with a bit of carbonation, not assertive either way but the perfect combination of carbonation and creaminess

O- This has always been one of my favorite IPAs and it deserves its place amongst the best IPAs that is available everyday

Had this many times while living in Michigan and honestly it is the perfect go to beer. Especially the case on tap. Pours a beautifully clear golden color, plenty of bubbles, with a creamy white one finger head on the top. The aroma consists of sweet pale malts, grapefruit, honey, just a hint of pine. Flavor follows as smooth as can be. Some up front bitter slowly drifts into a sweet honey grapefruit flavor and finishes with a clean crisp bite. Lively carbonation, light on the palate, and goes down way too easy. Not a world beating hop bomb IPA, but one of the most drinkable beers on earth.

This beer pours a orangish amber with half an inch of fluffy white head, and nice lacing.

The smell is of malts and almost brown sugar like.

The taste is of orange rind slightly citrusy and malts, with a malty hoppy aftertaste that is not too strong.

Smooth with a dry finish moderate carbonation.

Overall I love this beer, and this style. I will definitely pick this one up again multiple times.

Served in a half pint
On-draft at the mothership itself in Kalamazoo!

From notes.

A: Hazy orange with golden tint depending on how the light hits the glass. 1.5 (white) fingernail head.

S: Pungent (earthy) hops, sweet malt backbone, citrus, pine, and caramel. Hidden fruit esters linger on nose, but this balances so nicely with the hop and malt characters you just want to dive in and find out what this beer is all about.

T: BOOM! Hops burst forth as soon as this liquid hits the palate, but its perfection does not stop there. The bitterness and malt tango is so well executed there is negligible room to find criticism. Notes of citrus, pine, grapefruit, and caramel sweetness accent the hop profile as this beer is brilliantly well-rounded.

M: Medium bodied (creamy) with moderate carbonation.

O: This beer is quite tasty all-around. Not too much to say other than that. I've had bad experiences with bottles of this, but if you can get this on-tap and fresh, it is worth seeking out. By far my favorite offering from a short visit in Kalamazoo. Cheers Bell's!
