Beer added by: Todd on 12-11-2001

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.

Pale yellow in colour with a foamy white head which disappear quickly.

Smells fruity and citrusy. There's a lot of grapefruit and lemon.

Tastes excellent both fruity and bitter balanced perfectly. It has tastes of orange, lemon and bitter hops.

Only slight carbonation feels great on the tongue crisp and refreshing.

This is a great IPA more interesting than some of the others, in my opinion one of the best.

12oz bottle. Reviewed live.

A - Pours a clear, bright-orange color with one finger of white head that recedes after about 1 minute.

S - Lovely citrus hop aroma with some piney hops and sweet malts in the background.

T - Follows the nose - intense citrus flavors followed by a bready malt backbone. This beer makes me smile when I drink it, which is rare. For a more 'mass-produced' IPA, this sets a standard that is hard to beat.

M - Great carbonation. Creamy and crisp. Perfect for an IPA.

O - When I first tried this I didn't like it, but my palate was not used to good beer yet. IMO Bell's is one of the best mico-breweries in the USA, and as this is their flagship brew it is highly recommended. This is the perfect IPA - not too complex, slightly bitter, but insanely refreshing. If you like this, check out Hopslam and the Expedition Stout. Those are other brews from Bell's that make me smile :)

PS - it's better in the bottle than on-tap

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Bottled 11/17/11. 

Pours a deep golden amber with 3 fingers near white head. Good lacing.

Smells of pine & citris hops 

The taste follows nose. An initial bitterness then pleasant sweet hops.

Light, mildly resinous body. Faint carbonation.

Not my favorite IPA but it's well done.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass.

pours a slightly cloudy, dull golden tone while yielding a 2" whitish head. decent retention and lacing.

nose offers a nice bouquet of citric/tropical hops with a slight floral character and a touch of pine.

flavor follows the nose. opens with a bitter hoppy bite which is followed by the citrus, tropical, pine, and floral hops (in that order). very subdued malt presence. medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.

overall i can see what this is such a widely acclaimed "go-to" beer for those lucky enough to live within bell's distribution range. great IPA, tasty and very drinkable. thanks to abanton for the opportunity to sample this one.
