12 oz bottle poured into as traditional pint glass. Nice creamy head that dissipates pretty quickly but generous lacing left behind to the end. Nose is really resinous - pine, a little grapefruit, some varnish or furniture polish (not in a bad way). Taste is consistent with the smell with some malt upfront but finishing crisply. This is my local brewer that I've tended to overlook, but this needs to be revisited. A lot. Really a very nice, well balanced and very drinkable IPA.

I've tried several Mad Anthony brews in the past, and they've been very hit or miss--quality control is a recurring theme among smaller Indiana brewers. Since these guys have recently expanded, though, their beers have been much more consistent, and the IPA is a stellar standout.

It's a great, balanced, late-90's style Midwestern IPA. Think Alpha King, or 2 Hearted, or even Masala Mama. It doesn't quite have the fruity hop peaks of the offerings from Bells and FFF, nor does it quite have the same majestic balance of Town Hall's flagship, but it's still an excellent iteration of the same style.

These days, with every goddamn thing getting aged in a barrel and neophyte beer geeks refusing to sip anything that doesn't leave lesions on their tongues, it's nice to return to a relatively simpler time, when Goose Island's IPA was considered a hop bomb. This is an excellent flagship, and I recommend you all give it a try.
