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.

bottle. Very solid IPA - tons of hops with great balance. Meets my requirements of a good IPA. Very excited to try their Imperial IPA, the Full Court. Of the 2 I’ve tried, impressed with this company

This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated hazy dark orange brown colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and malty. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mediumly tingly finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of caramel and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

12oz bottle. Mostly clear orange yellow color. Thin off-white head. Nice spreads of lace. Kind of a caramel malty, lightly soapy hop flavor. Lightly citrusy. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter, kind of crisp carbonation, lightly sticky finish. OK IPA. Not doing particularly much for me, and doesn’t taste as fresh as it could be (not date code found though)

Pours a clear gold color with a big eggshell head. Good lacing down the glass as I drank it. Smells of citrus/grapefruit with some sweetness from the malt cutting through the hops. Some vegetal smells as well. Taste citrusy but with a distinct sweetness from the malt and too much vegetal flavor. Finishes with a very sweet flavor. This beer could use a lot more bitterness. Also notes of oxidation in the finish. Finishes with a lot of wet band-aid flavor. Mouthfeel is good and creamy. Very oily and probably lots of dry hopping on this one. I’m always glad to see new breweries pop up especially ones so close to home. This is quite frankly a bad IPA, but check our their Imperial Stout. Much much better.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; a transparent golden orange with thin white lacing. Smells of mild hops with a lighter pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with some nice pine notes. Solid on the palate. A decent IPA.

Draft at slippery noodle. Pour dark golden. Nose mango fruit and resin. Some sweet malt. Taste some pine hop but mostly malt. Fairly strong malt for ipa. Some bitter on finish.

Strykzone (6760) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Golden with a hint of copper. A caramel and tangerine nose. Those are tasted with a little cinnamon. Moderate bitterness. Decent.

jsquire (4167) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Deep golden color out of the tap with a fluffy white head. Hop resin nose with some chalky notes. This beer has lots of grapefruit rind bitterness, doughy bread and yeast flavors. There is a long, dry hop pellet finish. OK IPA.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a cloudy orange color with minimal white head. Aroma of pine and grass upfront with a bit of. Citrus on the back of the nose. For me this is a mild IPA. Now this has a good malt backbone but the intensity of the hops is just not there.
