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.

12 ounce from Khan’s downtown shop. Slightly bitter with medium hop presence. Nothing really separates this one from the back, though it’s drinkable. I expected more.

Well first off the description says golden. this is far from golden. That being said it smells great! Citrus, floral pines, grapefruit, various fruit juices, with syrupy Carmel saps. Flavor is again rich citrus, fruits and sticky caramel malt sugars with a moderately to lightly dry finish. some sweetness from the dark caramels. Heavy bitter finish. Full body and flavor. A good Indiana IPA.

Pours a nice deep orange with a big creamy white head. The aroma is citrus, pine, and some grapefruit. The taste is hoppy, dry, and bitter. Decent ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foam with a frothy top of fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was of citrus and hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of sweet and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

Better than average brew. Pours orange with little headd. Aroma is primarily piney hops. Taste is light caramel with a bitter biting hop finish.

Loved the bitterness to an extent on this one... The problem is the bitterness does not stop. Liked the color.

Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average fizzy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with a moderate bitter finish of medium duration. Good brew.

Bottle from trade. Aroma was a nice floral hop, but the flavor was bitter as hell, grassy hops. I'm not a big "hit you in the mouth" hop guy. Similar bite to the Hopocalypse on my coast. Blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Orange toffee and orange peel/pine aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Sweet orange toffee malt and strongly bitter orange peel hops flavor. Very good.

Slightly cloudy copper pour with white head and little lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, lemons, and grass. Taste is mainly bitter. Nice flavor with the caramel malts to balance the hops. Finish is dry and and very bitter, and maybe a tad bit astringent, which is not a bad thing. Overall, this is a pretty tasty one and I was pleasantly surprised.
