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.

A 12 ounce bottle poured into a DFH Signature Glass.

A: Golden/light amber with a light haze and .5 finger head with only a little retention. Moderate amount of lacing.

S: Tangerine peel and light grapefruit in the nose, with little hints of floral hops. It's a rather nice smell, but sweeter than I'd guess from an IPA. I'd like a touch more hops.

T: There's the bitterness from the hops! Note overwhelming, but definitely there up front along with that strong citrus present from the nose. I'm getting a good mix of orange and grapefruit, which also adds a bit to the bitterness. I'm picking out the yeast a touch more than in most IPAs, but it's a nice, fruity strand. The aftertaste is a less pleasant bitter, which I believe I've noticed comes from the Centennial hops (I picked up on this in Founder's Centennial too). Though the aftertaste isn't that great, the body is fantastic, with the malt complementing the hops well. It turns into a quick sipper, if just to avoid the aftertaste. Well done overall, though.

M: Light to medium bodied, with good carbonation. Very drinkable.

O: A very good IPA. I had Two Hearted once before and was underwhelmed, but this was a very fresh bottle. I'll grab some again as a good, casual IPA.

I've been wanting to try Bell's for a while now, and this seems as a great introductory to the brewery.

Big thanks to Robtobfest for the extra!

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass

Appearance is a hazy golden/yellow color and poured with a fluffy 1-inch head that dissolves into a top layer of foam that lasts the whole way down, leaving faint lacing throughout. I'm getting a floral and grassy scent, with a faint citrus note. There is also a nice scent of hop resins in there. Taste-wise there is a very nice, mild hop bitterness up front. I'm also detecting peach and mango. It leaves a faint hop bitterness on the tongue. The mouthfeel is just exceptional on this one. It is very mild and smooth, and has a sparkling effervescence to it. This is something I would definitely look forward to having again.
