Year of New Beer: Incessant, Bell's Brewery (MI)

Written By: Dion on 05/25/2020

I have a certain visual in my head when a beer is billed as a New England IPA. This is not it. Putting that aside, this is a solid double IPA. Nose is full of mango, pineapple, and melon. The fruits hit the tongue with equal intensity, juicy with a low bitterness. Slightly sweet honey malt backbone, just a touch cake-like. Finishes with a bit of herbal bitterness, but nothing overwhelming. Virtually no indication of its 8.5% alcohol. Nice beer, but it really makes me appreciate our local offerings
