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.

Thanks to jzmaxson27 for trading me this beer!

A: Wow. Props to Bells' for this beautiful single IPA. It has a hazy orange/amber color with three plus fingers of foamy, rocky white head. It's enormous and has great retention. Very dramatic lacing goes down my entire SA perfect pint glass.

S: Getting some clean piney hops. Not a whole lot else. Wish there was something more appearing in the aroma.

T: One sip and I can see why this beer has such a following! Great piney hops followed by a more floral hoppiness. Big pale malt backbone that adds a great flavor. This is followed by some decidedly yeasty flavors that I wasn't expecting at all! Great bitter finish that isn't too bitter at all.

M: Very well carbonated and creamy. Medium body.

O: This is one of the most balanced single IPAs I've ever had. I love that you can taste all of the components. Hops, malt and yeast all make an appearance. This is extremely clean and drinkable. Glad I got the chance to try it!

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Golden orange color with a nice white head. Diminishes into a nice amount of lacing along the glass and top of the beer.

Smell: It's disappointing to say the least because I don't get that much hops. Very faint citrusy and piney notes.

Taste: Ahhh, this is where the hops are. It has a citrusy hop taste to it, but piney hops are the dominant flavor here. Very nice balance with a slight sweetness towards the finish. There is a final touch of bitterness to it also that disappears quite quickly.

Mouthfeel: Smooth. Great carbonation. A definitely mowing-the-lawn beer.

Overall: This was my first time having this beer, and I have to admit I'm kind of disappointed. I heard great things about this IPA, but it left a little to be desired. It's still a very good beer. Very good, but maybe a bit over-hyped in my opinion.
