A brand new recipe including Columbus and Chinook hops. A increase in the malt as well with a ABV of 7.3%. You say you like Hops? Lets just see if you can handle this! Our IPA (Indiana Pale Ale) has enough hops to float a battleship. Let the resiny grapefruit-like hop flavor and aroma stimulate the senses and smack your buds. This beer style is extremely high in hop flavor and aroma, not to mention alcohol.

Bottle. Pours an orange copper. Hop aromas hit nicely with citrus as well. Grapefruit citrus and hoppy flavors abound. A bit of thin, slightly oily mouthfeel. NIce local brew..........hopheads need to check this one out!

Moderate citrus character. Over carbonated and a bit too yeast heavy. Not terrible, but not something I would go back to.

good beer worth trying. Poured cloudy. Bad head. But tastes good. Good ABV. Unfiltered and no glass lacing. I would have to try a fresh one to really know how good or bad it is.

Onslow (1392) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. SLightly cloudy brew with thinning off white head. Great hoppy aroma - lots of crist citurs and floral hops. Taste is very hops forward with excellent complety and flavor. Fine lingering finsih. Good palate and overall, very well crafted. Damn good - this will be a regular on my trips through Indiana.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2010
"Orange and grapefruit aromas with an overall floral quality. Marmalade colored body with lots of floaties, white head and decent lacing. Nice and bitter with a dry finish. Mild pine and citrus as well as a biscuit flavor...overall it’s fairly dull for an IPA. Nothing shocking and it has an odd bitter bite to it."

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2009
12oz bottle acquired in trade with shawnm213 (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Some lacing left on the glass. Aromas of floral hops, earthiness, and pine. Tastes of citrus, pine, some toastiness, and a trace of caramel.
