COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer, and a true example of the style, the Railsplitter India Pale Ale (IPA) is a fresh golden brew with noticeable citrus and floral aromas balanced on a nice malty backbone with a dry finish.

12oz bottle via trade. Poured a deep honey brown body with a smaller to perhaps average sized foamy light beige head. Aroma of flowery hops, honey topped bread, sweet toffee and molasses, biscuit and orange slices. Medium bodied with average carbonation that actually fizzes up to bolster the mouthfeel and a drier finish. Flavor is dry toast, English toffee, rind, old orange slices, flower stems. Not bad but nothing great.

Tavern on South. Indianapolis. Draft. Beautiful copper. Off white head, long-lasting lacing. Wonderfully bitter and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Had some of a friend’s draft pint at Scotty’s Brewhouse in downtown Indianapolis. Pours a clear orange-hued tea color with a small off-white head. Notes of citrus (orange and grapefruit), caramel malts, pine resin, and floral notes. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a bitter, citrusy mouthfeel. Good IPA.

Poured a nice copper color in my pint glass. Head was great and lacing throughout the entire drink. Nice floral nose, very nice bitter finish. The mouth feel is a bland. Hop choice is great for an IPA. Not an amazing beer but one I will for sure purchase again. This will be a great beer on a hot summer day!

12oz bottle pours a hazy amber/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is floral and fruity, citrus, slight hops, and caramel malt. Sweet and malt forward with notes of citrus and some bitter resinous hops on the finish. No amazing but enjoyable.

Hophaze (170) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours Golden Brown. Floral aroma. Hop forward beer but the bitterness seems to linger for awhile after you taste. I would prefer a more crisp finish. Decent. ----Hophaze out

Bottle. This beer is a beautiful deep copper color. Pours with a thick 1 finger head. Clear with light lacing on the glass as I drink it down. Aroma smells of orange juice and grapefruit. A touch grassy, probably from dry hopped cascades. Not all that strong and a bit 1 sided. As the beer warms I can pick up some toasted malt. Flavor is nicely balanced between hop flavor, malt, and bitterness. I get mostly caramel flavor from the malt but there is a certain "richness" in the background that I really like. Finishes with enough bitterness to clear the palate for the next sip while still being very drinkable. This is a really solid IPA. A bit maltier than a "west coast’ IPA so I probably won’t look for this much in the summer.

Hartung32 (207) - Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Very solid IPA; not perfect, but it hits all the right notes per style. Great aroma and flavor, but a little thin in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ICEatALAMO (909) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2012
bottle. Pours a rich deep orange with little head. The aroma is intense hops, tons of welcoming citrus, very inviting. A little over carbonated. The taste is very enjoyable with more intense hops. A little too much bitterness in the aftertaste that sticks around a little too long.
