Had this on tap last night at new Barley Island, broad ripple location. Pours fairly clear dark copper. Nose is strong pleasant citrus/pine hops. Flavor has a very nice citrus hop profile, with a clean, dry finish. Good flavor and excellent offering.

Had this at 3 floyds a while back. Nice big hoppy aroma of citrus. Flavor of hops and some caramel. KInd of citrus, piney. Nice mouthfeel. Pretty good beer.

HoppyAlesToYou (156) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Served in a snifter from a tap at 3 Floyds, I could detect a slight caramel aroma along with stronger citrus and resin. For the style, the flavor was well balanced between malt and hops, but not outstanding. Similar to Arcadia’s Hop Rocket, as both use English yeast, but not quite as memorable. Well done, overall.

DrnkMcDermott (2800) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Beer #15 at GTMW, from the Real Ale tent. Very clear, almost pilsener-like color. As a cask beer it has few bubbles and a very thin head. Nice hoppy smell, of course. Great IPA taste with a thin cask mouthfeel; lets the beer slide right on down, so I give the "Palate" the max I can rate. A fine example of a Real Ale style IPA.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2009
On tap at Three Floyds, served in a snifter. Lightly hazy orange pour with a thin, slightly lasting head of beige foam. Spotty lace. The aroma was full of tropical fruit and fresh pine. Just a bit of caramel. The flavor was moderately hoppy and had tropical fruit, peach, and pine. Not much malt coming through, but not overly dry. Medium-bodied mouthfeel that felt slightly watery. Light carbonation. Not hoppy enough for my tastes. Just okay.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours murky yellow orange and served with no head. Mild grassy nose and pretty damn bitter. This comes of like just a jumbled mess to me.

10 oz pour into tulip at Rich O’s. Very generous pour with practically no head. Dark orange color, scent of grapefruit, spicy floral hoppy aroma. Taste is of sweet grapefruit which is unusual for and imperial IPA usually the bitterness over powers, but it is a nice change of pace. Very easy to drink high gravity brew.

LarvalChemist (29) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Arrived an opaque, light amber with a white head. the nose was spicy and floral, definite hops. The hops, as the name would imply, dominate the flavor. The ending is rather long and dry with hops striking the middle of the tongue. Overall a rather light and spicy drink.

Fresh biting hops. Dangerously drinkable because it feels and more like a premium IPA, not a IIPA, in that it isn’t super heavy, viscous and filling. Great balance – the malt doesn’t take over as it does in many IIPA’s. Not overly sweet. Great. Fresh.
