This IPA is fantastic!! For a 9% abv IPA I find this brew to be very well balanced. This beer pours with a rich amber color and creamy head. Taste is biscuity followed by citrus hops that linger on the tongue. Aroma is citrus and malty. The beer finished very clean for a 9% beer! This is an IPA that you can drink a lot of but be careful the alcohol will sneak up on you. I will be back for growler fills of this for sure!

This was a real surprise to my latest mix and match - excellent double IPA with a massive nose and awesome quality taste. Will pick up again for sure - I didnít expect much with it and really enjoyed it!

Poured golden amber from bottle - thin white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma wasnít particularly strong, but pleasant with the citrus hops dominating. Flavor was quite good...very hop forward with citrus and piney hops working together - and a decent amount of malt backbone, though the 9% ABV suggests it is more DIPA than branded. Palate was, well, thick for an IPA and thin for a DIPA...but it worked nicely - and the 9% is hidden in there. Overall, I thought this was quite a good beer, and one Iíd visit again in the future!

The ratings on this are way too low. It tastes nice and full. I agree it is a bit too over carbonated, but it is not bad tasting by any means. I find it quite smooth and easy to drink. If you said it was only 4% I would believe it because it doesn't taste as strong as it actually is at a 9%. Worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy orange with thin tan head. Scent is faint fruit, stronger pine. Taste is mildly bitter citrus..peppery, a little biscuity. Nothing special, but pretty decent.

Originally tried this at the Indiana brewers fest. Very floral nose bordering on sugary. Slight bitterness at the beginning with a clean hoppy finish. Definitely one of my favorite Indiana brews.

On tap at Milwaukee Brewfest. Poured clear, lighter coppery-amber with a short beige head. The aroma picked up herbal and floral hops over toasted caramel, bready, and nutty malts.. OK balance, but the hop bill didnít really do it for me. The flavor found spicy black pepper and earthy hops over warm bready malts.. fairly hot finish with pine resin bitterness. Medium-plus bodied with moderate overall bitterness.. OK feel and flow.. not my favorite of the day, but it was drinkable.

I didnít think this beer was too bad. Definitely a bolder pale ale, not quite the flavor of an IPA. Iím a little surprised by the description of 9% alcohol as I didnít detect any alcohol in the flavor with the beer seeming too light to hid it.

shrubber85 (7608) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle. Caramel malt and grapefruit rind aroma. Chestnut with minimal head. Chocolate caramel malt and moderately bitter orange/grapefruit peel flavor. Medium body. Pretty good - weird that it is so much darker than their APA.

Pours red. Head is small and non lasting. Nose is quite citrusy, resinous, and moderately caramel like. Flavor is again citrus, fruits, resinous pines, some floral qualities, dankness, bitter hops, grass and darker roasted caramels. full body but dry bitter finish. Not horrible for an Indiana IPA.
