very cloudy golden orange color. very crisp citrusy aroma. light-moderate malt presence. lemony/grapefruit flavors. slightly astringent aftertaste. lots of floaties, but just a hair thin, but still delicious

(On tap at the 2003 Michigan Brewers Fest)Super fresh, clean, American hops aroma, and quite smooth. Heavily hopped - not surprisingly, I enjoyed it!

Sampled at Ashley's in Ann Arbor after the MIBG Fest. Bronze colour, floral hops in the aroma and flavour, creamy mouthfeel. Average.

Why do I like this better than Big Hearted? It certainly has a similar wild drying out affect in the mouth. But I think here the hops pause in their mad dash across the palate to let the other goodies catch up.

TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Muddy light bronze. Creamy layer of dense white froth. Lovely (but predictably American) floral, coniferous aroma. Undertones of vanilla, fresh bread, yeast, lemon zest, orange, and herbs. Soft, tiny bubbled carbonation. Very crisp. Herbal, piney hops alongside notes of lemon zest, rose petals, phenol, and a luscious malt foundation. Phenols are squelched by the caramel malt. Dry finish of luxurious bready malts, caramel, pine, and tingly acidity. A hugely hoppy and floral, yet balanced example that provides an abundance of piney hop belches.

the aroma of this reminded me of those 18 springs i experienced in Muskegon, just north of Holland, very rainy, piney, floral scent to it, it was rather cloudy just as the springs are too there, the flavor was nice and hoppy and full of citrus, a lil malty which helps it feel more satisfying that most IPA's that usually leave you dried out

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 17, 2003
Hugely floral, juicy, citric and piney hop aroma. Medium orange hue, very much unfiltered, with a clinging head and thin stripes of lace. Resinous, fruity hop flavors abound, from the very start to the biting finish. Malt flavors only manage to appear very late, but there is apparently gravity enough to give it some body to assist in balancing the relentless hop onslaught. This is one of those beers that gives the impression of being healthful.

Dark amber pour with an almost reddish hue to it. Huge hop nose reminiscent of tropical fruits like mango and such. Very nice balance in this one. A hop bomb all the way but definitely possessing a solid malt back bone. Medium-full body with a creamy palate. Good crisp bitter finish. An excellent brew and many thanks to maxpower for sending this one to me!

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 I love this beer, it it’s right up there with Two Hearted. The nose is sweet with hints of grapefruit and berries. Its got a real nice dense orange/amber appearance. The hop flavor lasts straight through to the finish, this a great refreshing brew.

Oh, how I hate to admit it, but it's the malts in this one that won me over - they were thick, creamy, smooth and sweet. Buzzing above all of the malt was a big hop - citrus fruits, mild pine sap. This IPA is above average. Thanks to Jeff - his business travel takes him to some wonderful places.
