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.

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.

Bottle. Pours clear light amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, stone fruit, and faint floral notes. Flavor is dry and somewhat simple with late bitterness and faint citrus along with a touch of sweetness in the finish. Medium body.

ibrubeer (194) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Draft @ Hyatt Place IND. Aroma is a very nice hoppy, citrusy, maybe a touch of pine. Dark golden color, a little cloudy, with a white head of tight bubbles that lingers pretty well. Good lacing. Malt & hops balance very well in the flavor. Nice citrusy taste. Fairly full bodied. Overall a very nice IPA!

12oz bottle from trade on HBT. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a finger of foamy beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, citrus zest, and caramel malt. Taste mimics the nose. Lots of maltiness and oiney bitterness.

Brentv (486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Served at a fine restaurant. I’m not sure whether it was on tap or from a bottle. Golden color with a one-finger white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste was pleasantly hoppy, with a mild sweetness and easy to drink. Medium oily mouthfeel.

Tap: dark copper color. Typical hop aroma with average but solid hop flavors. Better than most of the other Indy beers!
