COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Style India Pale Ale. We used an American base malt with the addition of Caramalt to give this now classic style a redish hue. Mound Builder includes an aggressive use of Columbus hops, which is a high alpha hop with a full flavor profile, and Centennial hops. The beer is also dry-hopped with Amarillo hops, which is a citrusy hop with notes of orange and grapefruit. People’s Mound Builder IPA is a hoppy, yet smooth American twist on the English IPA

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is a little grassy, but does not have a lot of hop character to it. Taste is a little bit bitter, but not overly so, and has a strong malt backbone to it. Not a huge fan of this...

Bottle. New penny color. Not much lace. Average IPA nose. Variety of hop flavors. As the bottle states you taste pine and grapefruit. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like. Hazy orange/amber pour with white head. Arona is hoppy lemon. Taste is a little bitter orange peel and hops. Sidenote. Had a little left with desert. Avtually goes well with whipped cream.

Another small brewery starting to distribute! How awesome is that?! Decent aroma, nice copper color but lacks a head or lacing I would like to see in an IPA. Taste is nothing to brag about....seems like a cookie cutter IPA. Nice moth feel, leaves a lot of bitter in the end. Overall, not a bad beer. I wouldn’t run out to buy it buy I enjoy it. I hope the other beers come to my local shop. I would like to try the others!

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Decent IPA for a small brewery... nothing too special, but I would have it again.

valpoaj (614) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Relatively small sample, and subsequently short rating - poured orangey/amber - decent head. Aroma is combination of citrus and piney hops - moderate strength. Flavor was generally unremarkable, but not offensive in the least - easy to drink, but can do much better in the IPA field in most locations...

jsquire (3395) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Deep amber color out of the tap with a sticky off white head. Nose of floral hops and fruit. This is a fruity IPA with apple sauce, orange juice and some grapefruit rind and soap. Long sweet tart and orange zest finish. Odd IPA.

12 oz. bottle from jmborggren. Pours a clear amber with a small off white head. The aroma is sweet and sticky citrus, dank hops and lightly toasted malts. The flavor is toasted caramel malt, citrus, earthy hops with a dry grassy finish. Decent bitterness toward the finish. This has good balance and would make a decent session beer.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 Bottle to pint (thanks jmborggren). Looks decent; dark for an IPA though. A deep, hazy burnt-orange with thin white lacing. Smells a little hoppy and a lot (caramel) malty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel and a dry finish for an IPA. Not bad. Note: I tried this on draft at the brewery in December and found it much tastier, but I’m sticking with my original review for scoring purposes.
