Draft to taster. Abv is listed as 7.0% on the beer menu at The Tap in Bloomington. Looks good; a hazy peachy orange with foamy white head. Smells solid; nice and hoppy with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A nice IPA.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Lexington. Clear light amber pour with a white head. Florally hop aromas. Tangy floral and citrus hop notes exploding all over the joint. Itís a bit unbalanced with almost no detectable malt notes. Average body and mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Tap
Pours clear amber with a nice foamy head with excellent retention and a good sheath of lacing down the glass.
Lots of citrus/pine hops on the nose along with a hefty caramel backbone.
Starts out with some citrus hop flavor and a touch of resin, but didnít really explode at the front of the tongue the way Iíd like. Definitely a hefty caramel backbone on this one and the sweetness is perhaps a tad bit high for an IPA. Finishes more balanced with caramel and resin.
Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A bit chewy, but no lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue.
A standard IPA for those who prefer more balance. It wasnít bad, but I feel the balance leans heavier toward malt and I found the initial flavor burst and lingering hop bitterness I expect from IPAís absent on this one. Still one Iíd reach for again, but not if there are better style choices.
