Pours very hazy with decent head retention. Dark gold / burnt orange looking. Very hazy can barely see through it.
Heavy citrus scents- orange, lemon, corriander and pepper. A little bread dough in the background.
This is a wonderfully hoppy IPA! Great flavor! Lots of bittering hop. Has flavors of orange, pepper, black licorice, (slightly soapy... but that happens in IPA's) and lemon.
If you like a beer that bites your pallete then you'll really dig this beer in the mouth. It really grabs everything in the pie-hole and works it's way down. Love the feeling.
You could easily drink 4 of these beers and will not get sick of it. It's not a session... but if you got a long evening ahead of you I highly encourage it!!!

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.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
I didn't see this beer coming at one of my local haunts, but I wasn't gonna argue with a new beer. It pours a clear sunset bronze topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises spicy greens, light grapefruit rind, pine resin, and sweet caramel. The taste brings in more of the same, though with slightly stronger notes of grapefruit and pine. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sticky, drying finish. Overall, a pleasantly surprising IPA, one that came across quite hoppy without losing its sense of balance. Not bad at all.
