Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average to large fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium frothy white head that recedes slowly. Sticky sheet of lacing on the glass. Piney hops aroma with notes of bready malt and citrus in the background. Medium body with a resiny hops character and flavors of grapefruit and caramel malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering caramel aftertaste. Above average overall.

Draft. Sweet orange malt and orange peel/pine aroma. Amber with small head. Sweet orange malt initially with intensely bitter citrus peel/pine flavor. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap at Trion Tavern. After a long day, I was craving some DIPA, and this hit the spot. Clear red / orange color. Thin off-white greyish head. Good spread of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter, crisp carbonation. Pretty easy-drinking. Big piney, grapefruity hops. Spicy hops. Good bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Lightly sticky in the finish. Solid, big DIPA, very satisfying.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Scotty’s Brewhouse in downtown Indianapolis, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear deep golden color with a small white head. Notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, honey, caramel, floral, and apricot. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, juicy, resinous mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Really tasty DIPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; malty though. A fairly transparent orangish brown with off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells hoppy and malty with notes of honey. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A forgettable malt bomb of a DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler flight at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a well hazed amber copper pour, darker with an ominous glow, a decent frothy whitish head sits atop and dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are lemons and grapefruit, a touch of pine, moving into biscuits and toffee. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a touch more with a healthy citrusy and earthy hop bit. Bitter florals and grapefruit, some pine and grass. Nice bitterness, dry and lingering moves into touches of biscuits and toast, maybe some lighter toffee essence. Dry hops stay strong and dominate the palate to the finish. Pine and earthy hops, some lingering citrus. Really nice DIPA to stumble across. Can compete with them.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub today around lunchtime. Pours clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, piney and grassy hops and a bit of citrus. Flavor starts citrusy with some caramel malt, nuts and grassy hops before a tangy citrus finish. Best beer of the bunch out of the five I had from these guys.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was hoppy and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.
