COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale ale is generously hopped yet balanced through the use of Munich and Crystal malts. Hops added after fermentation gives this American classic an intense aromatic bouquet. Enjoy!

12 oz. loose bottle, $1.50 @ Woodmanís. Big hop aroma right under the cap. Plenty of American power hops in the nose after pouring, too. Darker amber color than most IPAs. Very tiny particles in the body being tossed about by rising bubbles. A spongy white head with some cling. Taste is all about dry hopping, with unmistakable tang of dried hop cones. I guess thatís a bit one-dimensional and I can see why this doesnít draw big ratings. But I could guess what I would get here, and in that I was not disappointed.

Very strong citrus flavor. With a light, fizzy body. Overall, wish there was more of a bitterness for a "hopdinger." But overall decent.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma is some pine and citrusy hops, bit of caramel. Taste is slight citrus and pine, some sweet caramel and a slightly bitter finish. Pretty good, but for a hop forward APA itís a bit weak.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a tawny orange color with a small cap of white head. Aroma of bread, pine and citrus hops. Sweet malts in the taste. The hop profile is a little more muted in the taste, but does include some citrus. Has a biscuit and sweet caramel backbone. Could have used more hops overall. Slightly astringent and chalky finish. Higher than expected carbonation. Pretty average.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2010
A decent enough aroma, pine. Appearance is a clear amber with small head and minimal lacing. Taste is of light malt with some sweetness offset by the pine resin bitterness. Nothing over powering and a mild lingering finish.

thegreenrooster (3423) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Pour is a orange with a small white head. Aroma is piney and fresh. Flavor is again a decent amount of pine hops with some caramel malts in the backround. Nice beer to session.

Oh, an American Pale Ale. Well, Indianís are actually Native AMERICANS, so an IPA is no different than an APA. I donít know what I am trying to say.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle: Pours a clear orange amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh resiny piny hops and a mild light malty sweetness. Starts with a lightly effervescent body and faint sweet pale biscuity malts with a pretty good hop balance and assertive bitterness before a smooth, bittersweet finish. Could use a touch more sweetness and body, but this does make for a very drinkable and enjoyable session beer.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Pours athin amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas of cereal and floral hops. Flavor is slightly sour with little hop bitterness, dry and slightly bitter finish. Not really much of an IPA, more of an American Ale.
