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.

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.

Dogbrick (11336) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Sample at Twenty Tap in Indianapolis. This brew pours a clear copper-orange color with a medium ivory white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of grapefruit and caramel malt. The finish is is hoppy with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Above average IPA overall.

crossovert (11196) - Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2015
355ml bottle. Gold pour, foamy head. Amells pretty nice actually a departure form the other crap this brewery puts out. Citrus and a hint of toasted caramel malt. Flavor is earthy caramel malt and a good hop presence. This is okay, whatever.

shrubber85 (10587) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2012
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.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle... Sparkling clear orange/amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is a mélange of caramel, sugar cookie and citrusy hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor tilts toward the bitter side of balance, but not by much – cookie sweetness and acrid bitterness are the highlights. Finishes lightly bitter, tongue-numbing and dry.

DrSilverworm (9671) - 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.

phaleslu (9321) - 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.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of phaleslu. Pours a clear orange amber color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma has some resiny and grapefruit citrus hop character. The flavor has resin and earthy hops, less grapefruit citrus but it’s there, gets a bit thin and watery, caramel, mild bitterness, this one is just ok.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent orange with eggshell head. Smells solid; juicy hops with a well-balanced pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
