Pumped/surprised they had this beauty on the growler station and for an affordable rate.!

Got a growler and poured up the first glass in a nonic tumbler. This brew has a remarkably distinct head unlike any other beer. The head is uncharacteristically frothy, soft, snowy almost. Kind of awesome, lacing chased me down the entire glass every time..

Smell is hoppy and alittle piney, but this beer offers some floral notes to it that sets it apart. Taste is of the hoppiness but more notably the floral notes.

Mouthfeel is cozy with that pillowy head and medium carbonation. Overall, this, i feel, is one of bell's best brews. I wish I was closer to try more, more frequently!

Cheers!

A- beers pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head that settles to leave way to some decent lacing.

S- hoppy aroma with tropical and citrus fruit aromas. also some grassiness can be picked up as well as the sweet malty backbone of the beer.

T-Same hoppy characteristics of the nose. tropical and citrus fruits play the main role while the maltiness of the beer takes a back seat

M/D medium bodied and good carbonation for this style of beer. good drinkability.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A: Slightly cloudy golden with two fingers of dense white head and good retention. Some very nice lacing as well.

S: Peppery hops and pineapple. A touch of malty sweetness. Faint.

T: Complex hops. Citric, orange, a bit medicinal, and tropical flavors pull through quite nicely, but it's not overbearingly bitter. Very lean malt base; slight grain and a touch of honey sweetness blends with the hops in the finish.

M: Feels more like a pale ale than an IPA... light/medium body, refreshing and dry in the finish. I would have never guessed 7% abv for this one... it's dangerously drinkable!

Overall: A very well crafted IPA and a must try.

Had this on tap at Red’s Alehouse in North Liberty, IA. Pours a nice orange with a thick white head. Nice lacing around the glass, nice citrus hop aroma. The flavor is nice and hoppy with grapefruit and lemons. Amazing beer! Good stuff! This is a mainstay in my fridge.
