Beer added by: Todd on 12-11-2001

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.

A cloudy orange colored body. White thick head was and inch and a half and faded slowly. A few streams of average sized carbonation. Sticky clumps of lace.

A very nice hops oil aroma was strong up front. Pine needle scents blended very nice with a light citrus blend. A very minor sweet biscuit presence in the very end.

A super hop explosion. Citric flavors are mainly grapefruit. Pine resin taste is a bit subdued from the aroma. A minor bread taste, but slightly underpowered.

A sticky thick fluid on the surfaces. Carbonation has a hard time holding against the thickness.

A very good brew. Great with a plate of mild buffalo wings. A nice offering from Bell's. A bit unbalanced, but some good flavors nonetheless.

great looking bottle.

fizzy, bubbly head. laces on the way down. beer is a yellowy orange with some carbonation.

smell is really hoppy and a little rusty water.

flavor of hops right up front is pretty huge but the floral nature comes right out and smacks you. a little sweet, even, on the aftertaste.

really light on the tongue but ends a little sticky.

very tasty but the hop dryness comes out more with every sip.

On tap at Loring Kitchen and Bar in Minneapolis.

Appearance - good looking beer, ochre with a lighter head that's super rich.

Smell - decent smell, nothing terribly special in my opinion. It smells as crisply as it tastes though, which is fun.

Taste - excellent. The hops are certainly present, but not overwhelming. Lots of excellent fruit flavor behind the initial crispy bite too.

Mouthfeel - also very good. This beer is very drinkable. I generally have at least two in a sitting.

Overall - I used to call this beer my favorite. While I don't think that's any longer true, I do love to return to it every once in a while.

The beer poured a cloudy golden with a bit of white lace. The aroma was a wonderful blend of floral hops and peach. The taste was of rich malt with a heady mix of peach and floral hops. The feel was medium and wet. Having read all the devotionals to this beer on here over the years I was eager to have one. Finding myself at a bar in Dublin OH that had this, I was ready to give it a try. The aroma and taste were really much more than I had expected. A beautiful use of hops to enhance and not merely bitter the beer. Quite an enjoyable beer.

Pours a deep slightly hazed orange yellow color with a thick yellowish white head and a little lacing. Smells of piny hops and a little hidden malts. Tastes of piny and grassy hops with a little grapefruit and a little orange. Mouthfeel is medium with a nice carbonation. Drinkability is high for such a health ABV.
