3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Andy, 1/19/14
Aroma: The nose is citrus and pine hops, some caramel as well, leans sweet
Appearance: It pours a bright copper-red color with a frothy beige head and plenty of lace
Flavor: It is mid-sweet and mid-bitter up-front, the sweetness fades into a more bitter finish
Palate: This one is medium bodied, leaning light, has a nice mouthfeel, and a long, dry finish
Thanks Andy! I like this one. It starts as a balanced IPA in the front palate, but it turns much more bitter through the finish, which makes for an enjoyable flavor throughout.

To me this beer taste, smells, and looks a whole lot like Founders Centenial IPA, which definitely isn’t a bad thing. Almost a clone in my opinion, aside from a lighter mouthfeel, and possibly a little less malty aftertaste. Totally surprised me; easily the best IPA I’ve had that’s made in the indy area. Bitterness is perfect for this style of IPA and never overpowers the other flavors. Carmel malt forward IPA with near perfect balance; if you like a little malt with your hops you’ll enjoy this beer. Maybe a whole lot.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very citrusy aroma. Thin head and lacing. The beer is clouded. The taste is less citrus than the aroma leads to believe. The maltiness is not overwhelming, but in the forefront juxtaposed to the bitterness of the hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad, but not particularly memorable. Hazy orange with a thick head. Mild aroma of some citrusy hops, but flavor was more malty than I expected and the grapefruit hops were unfortunately accompanied by a mild soapy flavor. I wouldn’t turn it down, but I wouldn’t buy it if I had other IPAs I could choose from.

Poured a cloudy amber that you can’t see thru. Very little smell weak hops and an ashy finish not very good. Not Recommended

12oz Bottle via trade. Pours out a dark gold topped with a off white head. Aroma is nice sweet caramel, citrus, and some light floral notes. Taste is just a little caramel, light hops, with a light bitter end. The nose would lead you to think this was going to be pretty tasty, but it was a little bit of a let down.
