Served in an IPA glass

Eyes
Poured a translucent golden body with a slight amber hue. There was an abundance of bubbles swimming throughout the glass. Fair sized creamy white head that left a great deal of sticky lacing as it collapsed.

Nose
Impressive hit of hops off of the first whiff. A nice combination of floral and citric notes. Pine and grapefruit really stood out. There was a faint presence of malts. Cracker and thicker notes of molasses… but let’s not kid ourselves here, this is all about the hops!

Mouth
Hops up front. Herbal notes of pine, lemongrass and juniper berries. Sweeter citric notes developed towards the finish… primarily grapefruit. Sweet notes of caramel and molasses really tamed the hops, levelling this brew out nicely. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation.

Overall
Another endorsement for this legendary IPA.

First time in Michigan and first time trying this beer. This beer tastes great! Not overly hoppy but nicely hopped with a fantastic aroma. Reminded me of Odell's IPA, which is one of my favorites being from colorado. Can't go wrong with this choice.

on draft at beer study in chapel hill. snifter.

pours a dark copper with a nice head. smell is good and hoppy but not over the top. the taste follows suit but the flavor is really nice. its a bit citrus and a bit tropical. not fruity but not bitter. very balanced. real well done and you know they've perfected this. medium bodied, mild carbonation.

overall great IPA from bells available all the time
