To me this beer taste, smells, and looks a whole lot like Founders Centenial IPA, which definitely isn’t a bad thing. Almost a clone in my opinion, aside from a lighter mouthfeel, and possibly a little less malty aftertaste. Totally surprised me; easily the best IPA I’ve had that’s made in the indy area. Bitterness is perfect for this style of IPA and never overpowers the other flavors. Carmel malt forward IPA with near perfect balance; if you like a little malt with your hops you’ll enjoy this beer. Maybe a whole lot.

Bottle. A dark golden orange pour with a white head and some lacing. Aroma and taste of citrus, pine, floral hops and malts. A hoppy dry finish . Nice IPA.

Very citrusy aroma. Thin head and lacing. The beer is clouded. The taste is less citrus than the aroma leads to believe. The maltiness is not overwhelming, but in the forefront juxtaposed to the bitterness of the hops.

Not bad, but not particularly memorable. Hazy orange with a thick head. Mild aroma of some citrusy hops, but flavor was more malty than I expected and the grapefruit hops were unfortunately accompanied by a mild soapy flavor. I wouldn’t turn it down, but I wouldn’t buy it if I had other IPAs I could choose from.

Poured a cloudy amber that you can’t see thru. Very little smell weak hops and an ashy finish not very good. Not Recommended

Caramel colour with a nice head, great lacing. A complex nose of floral, citrus, especially grapefruit and orange. A taste of grapefruit rind, bttier but not overly bitter. Dry finish sligthly bitter.

Draft. From notes. Caramel and hay with a little citrus hops. Drinkable, but nothing super special.

italianjohn (3310) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Pale deep golden orange pour with a soapy off white head and small sticky lacing .... aroma of citrusy, piney/floral hops and caramel malts .... taste is of citrusy and spicy floral hops with a caramel malty backbone and a crisp hoppy dry finish .... a solid, sessionable average ipa with nice flavors and the abv is hidden well ... could drink this all day

12oz Bottle via trade. Pours out a dark gold topped with a off white head. Aroma is nice sweet caramel, citrus, and some light floral notes. Taste is just a little caramel, light hops, with a light bitter end. The nose would lead you to think this was going to be pretty tasty, but it was a little bit of a let down.

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Beer #100 from my wife’s home state of Indiana. Aroma: Moderate grapefruit with some slight pine resin; malts are of the cereal variety and lightly present. Appearance: Hazy light copper with a bubbly off-white head. Flavor: Fairly bitter grapefruit up front, very dry all around (more floral/pine with the dryness); cereal is an afterthought and mostly present towards the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Solid IPA; very similar to so many others around the country right now. Not a distinctive beer, but not a bad one, either.
