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.

On tap in a pitcher poured into a regular glass of non-specified type. Cheap college bar, so pretty general glassware.

A: Deep copper in hue with a slightly hazy 1.5 finger head. The head disappeared rather quickly. I drank this at a college bar so the glass wasn't as clean as it could have been, so the lacing wasn't the greatest, though it lingered for a tiny bit. I've had better pours, but I can't complain. Even though I was a little disappointed with the lacing, this brew is everything you expect out of an IPA in appearance.

S: Floral notes hit you right away. Present, but not overpowering. Definitely pleasant.

M: This beer leaves a very clean mouthfeel as nothing really lingers much at first. You can feel the carbonation on your tongue leaving a crisp feel, but the further into the beer the more it coats the back of your tongue.

T: This beer is immediately bitter. You can taste some citrus notes, though I can't place my finger on what type of citrus it is. I'd venture to say grapefruit, but I'm not certain. For the most part it has a nice bitter hop profile with a very subtle, subdued malty underbelly that chimes in every now and then just to let you know it's present.

Overall: This is my favorite go-to brew at the moment. Lately when trying IPAs I've been comparing them to this one just because I find it to be a very true, honest representation of what I think an IPA should be. Could easily be sessionable, but it is rich enough to leave you feeling satisfied after just one. Great to share with your friends. I could see this beer being a nice segue beer for a friend exploring the craft brew scene. It may be a bit hoppy for them, but if you want to introduce someone to what an IPA should be, I view this one as a solid standard in any hop heads repertoire.

This is a very hoppy beer. Taste extremely hoppy which creates an equally hoppy aroma. This beer has a very unique story for bells brewery! A citrus and floral aroma frequent this beer with after notes of grapefruit. In appearance the beer appears cloudy... A caramel aroma characterized the beer

Very popular beer, especially in the Michigan college community. Strong hop scent and the hops are very apparent upon drinking. High levels of carbonation leave a tingling after taste. Hops are the only way I can describe this beer as it dominates the aroma and flavor.

Very hoppy taste, but not overwhelming at all. Gives a bite that keeps you wanting more. The light mouth feels allows for easy drinking. The carbonation leaves a lingering tickle in your throat. But the hops do leave a slight after taste, probably the only downfall to the beer

Medium Coloring. Smells sweet like citrus. Once you drink it, it feels very light on your tongue. You can tastes the hops in this beer- very hoppy. Once you swallow this beer, your mouth will tingle and feel refreshed. Very good beer and popular in the college community

This is a fantastic beer that I drink pretty regularly. One of my favorite go to IPAs. Pours a nice color and a decent head. The smell is very good, zesty citrus which is one of my favorites. Taste is very much full of those same notes as well. Always a good beer to drink
