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.

The aroma is overwhelmingly hoppy! Notes of pine and hop are pretty much the only distinguishable scents. However, I was a bit disappointed when the beer wasn't as bitter as it smelled like it was going to be. It seems like the bark was worse than the bite. The finish was clean and hoppy. I'm not generally a fan of the IPA style, with it's overt hoppiness, but this one was done in an exceedingly balanced way, that made it a joy to drink.

Appearance - Poured orangish gold in color with a white head that left plenty of lacing.

Smell - Lovely floral hop aroma, very pleasant.

Taste - Hops dominate the taste. The beer is light enough on the malt and heavy enough on the hops that I am getting my much needed hop fix without interference from the malt. Great hop flavor to pair with the great hop aroma.

Mouthfeel - light/medium in body. Nice and crisp.

Drinkability - Sessionable, in fact if I could get this easier it would be my new go to IPA. We've just began to see Bell's here in VA and I couldnt be more excited. Hopefully we'll get some better distribution b/c this would always have a home in my fridge.

Orange, lightly hazed. A whipped-looking white head rises a good three fingers high and leaves behind patchy lacing. Bright sugary citrus aroma, like a handful of centennial hops. The flavor is certainly not a letdown if you're looking for hops. But its not an in-your-face tongue massacre, its loads of fresh, oily hop flower power. Like candied grapefruit, but never heavy and cloying, the filling mouthfeel is surprisingly easy to handle . Naturally bitter, though not overly so. This is an IPA all about that sticky hop cone FLAVOR, not just IBUs. Really delicious stuff...I've found its already become one of my favorites.

Pours relatively light in color compared to many IPAs. Almost a true gold. Two finger head is soft as a pillow and just freely floats on top of the beer.

Smells of candied citrus, floral hops and very faintly of grass clippings.

Tastes exceptional. One of my favorite IPAs. Very prominent and clean hops. Not extremely well balanced, but good enough. A little citrus, perhaps grapefruit and lemon. Laces with the best of 'em, thats for sure.

Easy to drink. A bit tangy from the hops, but that only leaves you wanting more. Great beer.

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

A: deep golden ale, not quite clear, ivory head a few fingers high, smattering of lace trailed behind, persistent filmy cap

S: flowers and rain, chewy grains, notes of citric pith

T: crisp and fresh malt bill supports a gorgeous hop array, bringing many floral and citric powers to the fore

M: crisp and tight, clean and light; smooth and creamy, moderate bitterness and superior drinkability

O: top-tier IPA action here - glad Bell's has found its way to Long Island - the flavors and smells and feel are fairly style-typical, but there is something that happened in the execution of this beer that produced a product of exceptional quality. In terms of craftsmanship, it draws comparisons to the best of the rest.
