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.

Poured from tap into nonic pint.
Pours a slight haze golden color. Good head and lacing. Smell is of slight piney hops....very mild.
Taste is of mild fruity and piney hops. Great mouthfeel...not overly bitter but very well balanced. Very very good IPA and excellent on tap. I'd get again for sure.

12 oz bottle dated 12/21/11 received in a trade as an extra. Poured into a Portsmouth Brewery pint glass. Review from notes on 2/2/12.

A- 1 finger of white head which left nice lacing around the glass. Color is the typical hazy golden orange seen in most Ipas. Some carbonation off the bottom of the glass but not much.

S- Orange, grapefruit, citrusy hops, with a touch of sweet bready malts. Not a big aroma, but pleasant.

T- Taste is lacking for me, was hoping for the taste to at least match the aroma. In my oppinion it lands short of the mark. Its a clean finish but there is not much there in terms of hop characters and bready malts. Which are the characters Im looking for in the taste of an Ipa. Wasnt much in the way of bitterness either.

M- Light bodied with decent carbonation

O- Had hopes for this beer but it fell flat for me. Wasnt impressed and wouldnt search this one out. Would give another try if received as an extra in a trade might have just had an off bottle.

Bottled on 1/18/12. This is some fresh stuff right here! Poured into a Smuttynose Big Beer tulip. Wow! Gorgeous color on this IPA. One of the best I've seen for the style. Taste is amazing. Flawless really. Hints of sweet citrus flavors such as grapefruit and candied orange. The hops don't slap your tongue silly (I usually like that) but who cares when this beer tastes so good. Really refreshing and an easy drinker even at 7%. This beer also left some gorgeous lacing. This is my first from Bell's and I know I'm going to try more from them, not to mention purchase this beer again. Like a lot of reviewers before me have stated, the Bros really missed the mark on this excellent IPA.

A huge thanks goes out to Timmush for my 2nd ever experience with this wonderful, FRESH IPA.
[Bottled: 12/01/11]

Pours a crystal clear(2nd pour brings abit of haziness) orangey/amber color, with a 2 finger off white head that leaves behind some slight lacing. Excellent retension.

Probably one of the most equally balanced aromas(between the malt and hop flavors), in an IPA, I've ever had. The breadiness from the malts, the piney, slightly fruity aromas from the hops blend exceptionaly well.

Flavors follow the nose to a tee, with a slight bitter grapefruit taste added to the tongue. Not overly bitter... which is the way I like my IPS's. This is an amazing beer!

Medium body... very smooth, with an appropriate amount of carbonation. Slightly bitter, dry feel that makes this super drinkable.

Overall... yeah, this one's a winner! One of the best IPA's I've ever had. Gotta get me some more of these bottles soon.

Bottle to Mug

A: Golden Orange that is slightly hazy, white head with plenty of lacing and retention.

S: Citrusy Hops, sweet malts, and a medley of fruitiness.

T/M: For an IPA, it has a rather fruity taste, grapefruit, melon, and citrus. Medium bodied for the style. Extremely drinkable.

O: An outstanding beer... IMO, this, Stone IPA and Surly Furious are the best Single IPAs found on MOST liquor store shelves in my area. Surly is rather different, so I wish to do a taste test of Stone and Bell's and find out which I think is better.
