3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler courtesy of hopscotch. Pours clear copper with white head. The aroma is pretty malty with a bit of brown sugar and biscuit to go along with pine and spice hoppiness. The taste is a bit chewy with malt, creating a ‘yum’ sensation, with the additional layers of caramel and biscuit. A moment after the maltiness is fully realized smooth pine and spice hop bitterness even out the experience. It ends more refreshing than I thought it would with a pleasing level of hop bitterness and a mild amount of lingering chewy malts.

Had at a random bar near the hotel at my brother’s wedding in Indianapolis. Not one of their better offerings; was expecting more out of an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
15th Annual Indiana Microbrewers Summer Fest 2010, Dry hopped at the Hopapalooza tent: Golden hue with a large frothy head. The aroma has notes of grassy and resiny hops, grapefruit and tangerine esters, basic 2-row malt and some peppery vapours. The taste starts bitter and fruity but is quite well balanced by the malt. Moderate hop spice and metallic notes found along with a hint of alcohol. The mouth feel is very aggressive and brash but at the same time nicely refreshing outside the linger metallic aftertaste. All in all a solid drinkable IPA. Not quite sure if I would want to wait in that line again for it however.
