COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, were just as hysterical about hops as we are hoops.

bagalagalaga (113) - Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2013
A very standard IPA, not bad at all but not really standing out in any way. I guess this is the IPA to get if you support Hoosier basketball.

Finhead (1185) - 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 (1277) - 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 (4166) - 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.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2014
[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.

3.1
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy orange with a thin head and pleasant aromas. Citrus and pine with a touch of mango. Things are looking good and then I take a sip. Im hit by a brash bitterness that lacks any sort of flavor and a grainy and dusty malt presence that is not that great. Darn the nose had me expecting goodness.

hayduke (3369) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Courtesy of Strykzone. Poured copper with off-white head. Nose of citrus hops. Medium body. Flavor is caramel malts and citrus hops. Bitter finish. Classic IPA and that is good.

drfabulous (3991) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Draught at Slipper Noodle. Malty slightly hoppy IPA without too much going on. Pretty basic.
