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.

Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. Resinous and floral aromas. Slightly sweet with a resinous hop flavor. Medium body with a high level of carbonation. Semi-dry at the finish.

Nephilium (1360) - Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Nice punch of citrus hops to start out. Pours a clear amber with just a ring of off white head, and yeast in the bottle. Very little malt noticeable in this beer, there’s a strong hop presence, leaving a lingering bitter finish. Not a bad IPA, and very drinkable.

DrSilverworm (6416) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12oz bottle, shared by Jay. Mostly hazy darker brown color. Thin off-white head, nice spread of dotty lace. Medium-plus body. Lighter more crisp carbonation, dry finish. Nice balance of malts and hops. Good biscuity malt, light on the caramel which is cool. Citrus (orange-rind), some floral hops. Nice moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid IPA.

Draft pour clear orange. Nose of slight soapy floral hop. Taste of pine hop up front. Mid palate sweetness and a long bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel.

dmac (4016) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2013
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 (6509) - 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.

frank0830 (60) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2013
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!

Atom (1346) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2012
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.
