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!

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.

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 (7129) - 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.

bottle. notes of pine, citrusy and grapefruit hops. some light bready caramel. decent balance. a bit herbal. some okay pine character, but a bit too bready, and a bit chalky. not clean.

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.

satan165 (1019) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2010
nose is light cereal sweetness, occasional bready malt and beginnings of pine. appearance is light copper with good haze, big lacing and retaining film head. flavor is fruity with peach and touch of lime, big pine and breads to balance. well balanced APA that provides the hop fix and nears IPA territory without overstepping its bounds. infinitely sessionable.

Thanks guyinchicago. Amber pour with an egg white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is piney hops, a little watery. The hops are not pungent, but nevertheless, an ok beer.

WisconsinBeer (703) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2010
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange color, medium head. Beginning is slightly sweet and toffee flavors and crystal malts. Fresh pine like hop flavors and a dry finish. Residual flavor isnít amazing, but I think this beer deserves more than 25th percentile.
