Sample from a growler brought by the Hoosier Beer Geeks to the Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition festival- thanks, guys! Pours a somewhat cloudy gold color with a finger-thick, soft, foamy eggshell white head. The aroma is grassy and earthy, with dry cereal grains, a bit of herbal character along with the grassy hops, sweet malts, and lemon citrus. The flavor is completely different, with a lot more citrusy and resinous notes, caramel malts, floral notes, and some dry bready yeast at the end. Medium-bodied, with a resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Alcohol is totally hidden. Really nice DIPA, and I’d like to try more of it.

This is nice. A little malty and very sweet, but the hop blend is solid, although not biting. This is not a citrus bomb, which I prefer, but the fruit and citrus notes are there. More floral notes prevailing. Nice lingering bitter aftertaste. I hope they start bottling this and shipping to Indy.

on draft and it poured out orangish yellow color with light white foamy head. the aroma of hops very prevelant and tasty as well. the warmer the beer got the better the hops tasted. not overly bitter but just the right touch that sits on the tongue. very enjoyable in as much i had two.

Growler. Pours orange with an off white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops. Medium bodied with a slight sticky texture. Pale toffee and honey like malt base, countered by an assertive puckering citrus rind bitterness. Dry and resiny finish.

Deep gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of caramel malt and citrus hops. Sweet, sweet malt with a nice hard citrus bitter. Medium/full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Served on tap at the brewpub. The appearance is a hazy yellow. The aromas are earthy hops and a touch of citrus. The flavors are the same but a little muted. Perhaps not the freshest keg? Overall an average DIPA.

On tap in an English pint at the Back Door lounge. Poured dark amber with very little head. For the style, this beer lacked the huge hop aroma one would expect. The flavor was not as hoppy as one would think either. I think the keg was really old or something, so I need to try this beer again.

tap at Indiana winterfest - The aroma is full of citrus hops and earthy accents. The flavor is well hopped too, but also seems almost sugary. It’s sweet for a DIPA. That works alright though and the complex hop characteristics come through well.
