3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this one on draught at the brewpub in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. Hazy, reddish brown pour with a one finger, tan head. Excellent floral hoppiness in then nose. Grapefruit dryness and hops balanced with a nice, soft fruitiness that comes through into the finish, before being ultimately overpowered by the nice, potent bitterness of the beer. I liked this one, too.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
IBGF 2009: Light coppery hue with an okay head and lace. The aroma has notes of bready and caramel malts, grassy and citric hops, and a touch of mineral water. The taste starts with sweet malts and the hop are noticeable but a background player. Moderate hop spice and citric twang throughout. The mouth feel is a tad chalky but fairly good for the style. An okay brew but nothing to make a trip for.

Amber in color with nice lacing on Tap in Indy. This Pale Ale was sweeter than most , but lt passes quickly, with straight dry hops in the middle to a clean finish. Aroma was not noticeably a big play.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2009 tap at Mad Anthony Oktoberfest - Pours hazy copper and has a nice citrus hop aroma. The white head is long lasting and laces well. Itís hop heavy for a pale ale and in this case it works well. This medium bodied brew is a very tasty pale ale.
sampled again at the Indy brewpub.
