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.

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.

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

Appearance: Golden amber color and slightly cloudy; thick white head; nicely balanced carbonation.

Smell: Fragrant, floral hop aroma.

Taste: A mild sweetness and light bready flavor with a very complementary hop bitterness finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with a medium to slightly heavy body; fine carbonation on the tongue.

Overall: An exceptional IPA. Well-balanced and great hop flavors and aromas.

My first introduction to Bell's Brewery beers several years back. This is a toss-up for me as far as choosing a favorite, as I find their porter to be an excellent beer, too. Regardless, this is one of the two 'must have' beers I grab while visiting Ohio to take back to Colorado.

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Freshness dated 11/3/11, thus 5 weeks old. Purchased locally ($9.49/6).

A: Slightly hazy gold; 1" dense, slightly off-white head that settles slowly and leaves a consistent thin layer of lacing.

S: Moderate sweet fruit, esp. grapefruit; slightly floral; some pine.

T: Orange, grapefruit, then malt; slowly rising bitterness that neutralizes the preceding flavors, then subsides.

M: Low/medium body and low carbonation; smooth & creamy; neutral finish; slight alcohol warmth.

O: Some complexity; remarkably balanced; flavorful and very easy to drink; does not draw a lot of attention to itself; very pleasant and satisfying.

I've been hesitant to try this beer just because of all the hype it seems to be getting in my circle lately. Serves me right... after realizing this is an awesome IPA, I also realize I can't get it here (get Bell's, but no THA).

A - light copper, very clear

S - beautiful, exactly what I want - bright, citrusy

T - just like the smell, VERY clean-tasting, citrusy hops

M - light, but not thin

D - If I could get it here, I would drink these all night.

EDIT: It's been two years since I first tried this beer and I've had the chance to try it multiple times and in comparison to a variety of other IPAs. As a whole, it's still a very nice IPA, but the overwhelming Centennial nose makes the beer smell cereal-sweet (i.e. fruit loops).
