3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is citric and clean, nice floral character, bright and hoppy, a touch grassy. Flavor is much the same, excellent bright citric character, not too over the top in bitterness, refreshing light and a touch spicy. Finishes grassy and clean. medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to JoePeesie! Clear amber pour with moderate eggshell head. Aroma is full of pine and earthy hops backed by plenty of caramel malt and bread. Flavor is hop dominant of spruce, orange peel, and dirt backed by caramel malt. Some lemon in the finish with moderate rush of hops. Really good!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Clear yellow light orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy, but somewhat dense white head. Good retention and tons of lacing.
3.5 S: Overall pretty clean with neutral malt aroma. Hops are mainly floral in nature with some herbalness in the background. They aren’t that strong, but very nice smelling.
4.0 T: Soft bitterness. Again, really clean with neutral malt. Slightly piney and grapefruit hops.
4.0 M: Heavier light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very smooth and slight creaminess.
3.5 D: Not a bad brew and no problems. However, it’s a bit too straightforward and perhaps a touch boring. Don’t get me wrong, I really appreciate the craftsmanship here, but it just isn’t that exciting.
Serving type: can

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: clear gold with a quickly fizzling out white head. Nice grassy, peppery hops with flavors off tanginess. Not super hoppy. The finish has a weird zing to it, almost a little hairspray. Not bad but was expecting more.

Can shared by Bob - thanks!! Light yellow pour with a white head. Resin hops in the nose. Refreshing and easy to drink. Slightly bitter finish. Pretty nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a clear, medium copper color with a fluffy white head. Some lacing as the head settles. Nice aroma of malty caramel and fruity citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel. Nice slight sweet start that has a building level of citrus rind bitterness. The dry hopping really shows in both the aroma and taste. Ends with a lingering bitterness. Pretty tasty.

Got this can and southern star at Village bottle shop. This beer was thin, not much hops , not much head no lacing, and almost like an american lager. Nothing funky so I don’t think it was infected, just weak.

Indy Brewers Fest 2009 - A well crafted brew to be sure. The hops and malt play off each other in both the aroma and flavor. Not bad considering some of the pale ales I’ve had lately.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this at Sun King and also picked up a growler. Hoppy/ yeasty aroma. Amber pour with a malty sweet taste and hoppy finish. Definitely a stronger and more flavorful pale ale.
