Bells MARS Double IPA...$1.99 / 12oz
The Bringer of War

STYLE: Double India Pale Ale
ABV: 10.1%
COLOR: Reddish Copper
TASTING NOTES: The first release in Bell’s Planet Series,Mars (The Bringer of War) is a double IPA with a complex hop character and a malty backbone. Notes of tropical fruit, citrus, pine, lemon, lime and pineapple are all present in both the aroma and flavor. Hopped at a ratio of about 3.4 pounds of hops per barrel, the recipe for Mars was developed from a trial batch called Larry’s Latest Double IPA brewed in our original brewery located adjacent to the Eccentric CafĂ© in downtown Kalamazoo.

Bells Oracle Double IPA..$2.79 / 12oz bottle

Our take on the West Coast-style Double India Pale Ale, The Oracle places hop intensity first & foremost, making only the slightest concession to malt & balance. The fireworks start with the aromatic punch of dry-hop sessions with hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest. Resinous, citrusy hop flavors mixed with aggressive bitterness from a massive kettle addition deliver on that aromatic promise.

Did you do divvy this out from the top of all purchases, or from the top of just Bells beers?
