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.

Classic front hop bite, crisp selection of dormant aromas.

Easily the worst "IPA" I've ever tasted...if you can actually call it an IPA. Has about as much hops and character as a Bass ale. I am flummoxed as to how this beer is so sought after and over hyped. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is FAR more enjoyable simply because you don't have the preconceived notion that it's supposed to blow your mind. On a 100 point scale, I'd say this is respectfully deserving of 75, and that's generous. Can't say enough bad things about it, so I'll stop. Sorry, but I highly recommend looking elsewhere, anywhere.

Very rich aroma with the very complex hoppy flavor! One of the best IPAs out there

Floral aroma. Very well balanced, dry bitter finish. Nicely carbed, slick feel. First class IPA.

Bottled on 12/17/2014. Sampled and reviewed on February 25, 2015.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a 1.5 finger head of white foam. Big hiss when I popped the cap; always a good sign. Consistent lacing all the way through. Smells like a bouquet of flowers. Very floral aroma, along with hops, citrus, orange, and lemon. Slightly heavier-bodied than I expected for an IPA, but nice mouthfeel. Taste is about the same as smell - strong hop presence, which surprised me. This beer is over 2 months old but is as fresh as any I've had. Strong presence of citrus, orange, lemon. I also detect some spices in there. Surprisingly sweet for an IPA. Aftertaste is hoppy with some orange peel.

As I finish this review, I'm on my third one, so it's very drinkable and very refreshing. Maybe not quite the IPA I'd hoped for, given all the hype. But a solid IPA for sure. Fortunately Bell's is easy to find in my neck of the woods, so I'll most likely be buying this one again.
