Copper hued golden in color with an off-white head that left lace.
Pleasing floral, piney hop aroma with malt scents buried under the hops.

Big floral, piney hop flavor is well balanced by a nice biscuity, toffee malt profile. Very smooth.

Good mouthfeel.
This is an everyday IPA. Plenty of flavor, but balanced and very drinkable. Left me wanting another.

Overall, a good IPA. Not one that blows me away, but one I'd be happy to drink anytime.

The beer pours a golden orange, with a finger width head made of small tightly packed bubbles. The beer leaves a lacing of tightly packed bubbles that form a sticky curtain on the sides of the glass. The beer’s body is a cloudy haze, and a steady stream of bubbles can be seen racing up the glass. On the nose, the beer smells pungently citrusy with nice spicy notes of pine. The malt base of the beer is light and bready with a touch of spice, but nearly nonexistent on the nose. Orange peel citrus is the big player in the nose, and is nicely inviting. On the tongue the beer tastes bitter with a touch of sweet acidity. In flavor, the beer tastes of bitter medicinal hops with touches of citrus orange peel. The finish is strong with caramel bready malts with touches of spice. The aftertaste lingers with bitter hops and light orange citrus. On the mouth, the beer feels medium in body with a light velvety carbonation. The mouth is left clean with a bitter dryness lingering on the tongue. Overall this is a solid IPA with some nice orange citrus hops. It is not the best I’ve had, but it is solid and tasty. If it’s in your area, you should try this beer.

12 oz bottle...

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Light amber colored brew with a decent sized pillowy white fluffy head. Lacing all over this one, spiderweb-like.

S- Smell was bitter and citrusy with a nice hop bang.

T- Surprisingly malty and sweet. Nothing overly fruity except for the grapefruit.Citrusy/grassy undertones with a bitter hoppy crisp clean finish.

M- Medium-bodied IPA, sticky finish, coating the tongue and lips.

D- Highly drinkable IPA with a reasonable 7% abv...easily crept up on me.

I am glad I got to try this one, looking forward to more from Bells.
