12 oz. bottle served in a Great Lakes shaker pint . Bottled January of 2012. Thanks to mattboyer182 for the the extra

A: Pour a clear amber color with a thick and frothy one finger height of foam forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin cap and thick collar. Thick rings of lace are left down the glass.

S: Bread malts with a light earthy dirt hop smell. It's really hard to pick it out and it really doesn't smell like much. They are all very light.

T: Odd hop flavor. Almost like they are slightly spoiled. The hop profile is just weird. The malts are bready and pale in nature and dominate the finish. As the beer goes on it gets more palatable.

M: Lightly bodied and has a medium carbonation. Luckily the finish is near flavorless and it's easier to swallow.

O: The beer looked great, but in the end I just didn't like the hop profile and the flavors were just light. I love the lambics by Upland, but I've been underwhelmed by there other offerings.

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.
