Bell’s Official is a hazy, juicy IPA in the New England Style from Bell’s Brewery in Comstock, Michigan. It’s Bell’s official entry in the hazy IPA style – it uses pungent american hops combined with wheat and pilsen malts which result in what they call a smooth, aromatic, juicy IPA. At 6.4% ABV, it doesn’t break the scale, but does it compare with other New England style IPAs in Michigan, and can it hold it’s own against other widely distributed New England style IPAs from outside of the state? In addition to the regular review, I also bring in some surprise competitors to see how it stands up so stay tuned!
