So rabid are we about roundball that in 1925 Mr. Naismith himself declared Indiana the center of the sport. Needing only five starters, the game was tailor made for the towns that dot Indiana and just one or two great players could take any school to the state finals – and immortality.

Half Court is out celebration of basketball fever and the sweat it takes for success. A noble example of an India Pale Ale, this beer pours with a thick white head and hits you directly with the scent of hops and citrus. Be forewarned, we’re just as hysterical about hops as we are hoops.

Rated on 12-14-2013 (Bottle from Kroger’s Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer forms a small smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, orange, grapefruit, and lightly earthy. The flavor is very bitter, citrus, earthy, grapefruit, and light malt. The mouthfeel of this beer is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very biter tasting which is too much for my liking. It is a hop head beer.

thegreenrooster (3395) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is equal parts citrus hop and sweet caramel malt. Flavor is mostly malty. Large caramel malt presence but way low on hop bitterness. Hops can be barley detected after some swallows. This was not a real high octane IPA. way to much malt presence and where are the hops?

Finhead (1280) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Cloudy, orange pour with a small, white head and a lot of floaties. The aroma has some orange juice along with grapefruit. It has a medium body with average carbonation and a bitter taste.

Itzjerm (1541) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Very bitter IPA with no aroma. Malty with the bitterness but not balanced in anyway. Nice fading head. Sample from brewery.

Ferris (6528) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle - Orange and a bit of acetone. Cloudy orange with a decent white head. Sweet and cardboard with a light dry bitter finish. May be an old bottle.

[Bottle] Pours a dark shade of gold with a nice ring of foam on top. Aroma is sweet and very wort-like. Taste is also reminiscent of wort, with unfermented sugars, caramel and bready malts coming out prominently. The hops are herbal and included hints of grass and spearmint. Overall bitterness level is low. Interesting. It took me the whole 12 ounces to tell whether I liked it or not. Not bad, but probably not something I would buy again.
