Bottle packaged 4 weeks ago. Copper color with large soapy off white head. Nose is white bread, tropical fruit, sweet caramel malts. Taste follows the nose, also hoppy and piney. A bit chewy but refreshing. Great balanced IPA. I recommend this if you can get it.

Bought at Kroger's Swift Creek Midlothian. Bottling date is on the back label - 8/24/17! A little over 2 weeks old AMAZING FIND at this local grocery store! Hopefully it wasn't stored in hot warehouse! Deep gold pour with immediate hop aromas! Excellent balance between the malt and hops with low amount of bitterness! Very crushable and TASTY! Beautifully made beer! I can now taste the reason this has always been a standard bearer for IPA's! I could see this being drank throughout the year (But spring and summer is best for me!) Thanks Bell's! Find and drink amazing beers! SEH P.S. Price point for this beer is great @ $1.75 a bottle!!!! What a break from spending $4 - $6 a can/bottle of local craft beers nowadays!! AHHH!

Very solid IPA. It's got plenty of bitterness and a semi-dry finish but very balanced. The hops finish for quite a while on my palate which is nice. I get a bit of bitter lemongrass and grains. It's a beautiful color, nice golden with some haze. I get lots of malt on this, it's sort of heavy and it is filling. Great for colder weather. The feel makes you want another sip though. I think it could possibly pass for a Pale Ale but who really cares? It's good,worth drinking and I really like it.

L: Yellow with orange highlights, slightly turbid, nice head retention
S: Candied citrus, lemon tartness, grassy notes, floral, mightly slight buttered toast aroma as well
T: Toast, lots of lemon zest (low tartness), cracker, bitterness is low (very smooth)
F: Light, easy drinking, though not necessarily refreshing. Crisp, with a decent amount of carbonation. A bit more of a full drinking experience, something more to be contemplated than slugged back
O: Actually surprisingly good and complex IPA, though not overtly challenging. Haven't had much from these guys but can dig it for sure. Definitely will be something of a mainstay in the near future, great IPA

Excellent beer. Amber on the pour with a light head. Very tropical and almost too sweet to the nose for an IPA. The taste is more than redeeming with a great balance of malt and hoppiness, leaning mostly to tropical and citrus notes attributed to the Centennial hops.
