Golden-amber color, touch of haze. Highly carbonated. Thick bright white head.

Citrusy, orange, grassy, a little herbal, sweet bread.

Fresh hop bitterness up front, citrus, grassy, bitter orange. Strong malt backbone, sweet bread, a little caramel. Finish is very crisp and clean. Medium bodied, crisp, refreshing, tangy, super drinkable.

It's a world class American IPA!

Pours a cloudy golden with a puff of white fluffy, fluffy head. Smell is out-of-this-world super sweet double-down sweet corn. Phenomenal. Candy-like, and the taste bears a repeat.. candy-like, a beer starburst, hoppy skittles now available in golden IPA flavor! Finish is smooth, then dry and fleeting. Drink again. A 6 pack to savor this beer a few separate times is recommended.

12 oz bottle. What the hell are those things on the label. They don't look like hearts to me. I'll call MikeyW, he'll know.
This Bell's beer opened with more of "pffft" than the other ones I 've had. That's a good sign I think. Poured a more golden yellow color than a rich copper that I expected. I guess I expected a darker color, but that's ok. Rich bubbly, creamy, biege head. Full and strong, laced the glass on the way down.
Aromas spot on of striking Cascade hop goodness. Full on, very good. Full flowery hop aromas. First taste is equally striking, stand up and take notice hop bitterness. Combined with the tangy, bitter citrus taste. Subtle malt body. Balanced. Sticky, whole hop flowers, much like a Celebration Ale. Leaves a hole in your mouth, with bitterness lingering on your tongue. Medium bodied, perfectly charged. This one is the ultimate summer thirst quencher or bbq beer. And 7% abv is not felt. A beer I could drink again and again and not tire of it. I had this with grilled bbq chicken and corn on the cob. Perfect !

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12 oz. brown bottle to a pint glass. Received from weizenbob in trade - thank you!! I wish Bells would distribute to Colorado this stuff is so good.

A: Rather hazy golden orange color with a slight cloudiness. Nice white head with good retention.

S: Great citrus hop aroma!

T: Citrus hops in your face with bittering hops at first. Very smooth draw unlike most IPAs. finishes crisp and clean.

M: Very even with strong carbonation.

D: Absolutely!

This has become one of my favorite beers not just for the style but overall. Such a terrific brew.

From the bottle.

Appearance: a ruddy copper color with an off-white head.

Nose: Very floral, with honeysuckle and some funky dogwood flowers. Pineapple and orange are their as well. Everything is cloaked in sweetness.

Taste: Like a mouthful of pungent flowers followed by grilled pineapples, bitter green tea, honey, and toast.

Mouthfeel: Nice and balanced but could be a bit fuller.

Overall: A classic IPA that is really unlike anything else. Even other all-Centennial brews don't have this much floral to them.
