Poured from bottle, aroma is citrus, floral, bubblegum.

Appearance is a cloudy golden color with minimal white foam head.
Taste is lightly bitter, light body, soft carbonation, and abrupt finish. Became a little skunky as it warmed up.
Pleasant, easy, IPA.

On-tap at the brewpub in Bloomington. 16 oz. pour into a pint glass on February 18th, 2012.

A - Clear, dark golden-orange coloring. Super enticing, white, creamy, one-finger head. Okay retention but great lacing.

S - Light hops, touch of honey, flora, and malt grains. Predominant caramel aroma livens up as this glass warms up a bit.

T - Hop resin primarily at the front. Honey roasted almonds blends as part of a strong malt backing. Fresh baked bread, and light butter toffee.

M - Light-medium body, medium carbonation, standard finish. Semi-sweet aftertaste.

D - Decent, unique malt bill, but not memorable.

On-tap at Indy Tasting Room.

A - Pours orange in color, white head, spotty lace, wisps.

S - Citrus, grapefruit, light malts, some floral notes. A little too much sweetness for an IPA, IMO. There needs to be a larger dose of hops to balance this one out a bit more.

T - Citrus, pine, light tropical hops/malty sweetness. Not quite as sweet as the nose, but still, I would prefer more hoppy notes.

M - Light, good carbonation, oily finish.

O - An average IPA, but nothing crazy and didn't blow me out of the water. I would have this one again, but it probably won't be the first thing I order at Upland.

Bottle shared by plank10. Thanks Nick.

The beer is light orange with a small head that leaves sparse lacing on the snifter. The aroma is hop forward, with some floral and grassy notes. Decent flavor. Slightly sweet, with a sturdy malt backbone coming in behind. Light bodied with solid carbonation. Simple and easy drinking. A decent IPA.
