look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Big thanks to TDA8 for this extra.

A- Glowing orange body with a hint of amber. Thin off-white head that dissappears quickly and leaves a thin ring of bubbles and some lacing behind.

S- A dash of caramel malts with some faint traces of pine and zesty citrus.

T- More flavor than the nose would indicate, with a nice mix of pine, citrus, caramel malts and toasted malts. Very balanced, but the hop presence is noticeable.

M- Smooth, well carbonated, medium-full bodied.

O- A solid IPA that has a nice rich body and good balance.

From a 22 oz bottle into a pilsner glass.
Date on bottle is 5/30/14
To my knowledge this is the first bottling that Bloomington has done. Feel free to check me in this!

A: Gold in color with a good amount of carbonation rising. Thin head and lacing. The head is gone quickly and lacing fades fast as well

S: Faint hops and citrus.

T: Similar to smell. Orange on the toung and bitter on the finish.

M: light and airy. Fades quickly.

O:A bit weak in flavor and texture. I will update this review if I can find a bottle hats a bit more fresh.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on July 7, 2014.

It pours a slightly cloudy orange-amber with a long living off-white head. Some lacing.

The aroma has a kind of burnt caramel malt quality with earthy and resiny hops playing up around the edges. Not overbearing but the hops are noticed.

The body is definitely in the medium range and heading toward heavier.

Odd sort of barley malt, grainy malt start with a low to moderate bitterness at the finish. It just didn't blow me away but it was drinkable enough.

Had a sample of this poured for me from a jockey box at a local beer tasting.

Beautiful copper color, thin head.

Smelled spicy, piney--the kind of hoppy stank that makes you salivate. (If you're a hop-head like me, anyway.)

Tasted well-balanced, nice malty backbone that complements the excellent spicey/grapefruity hops.

One of the better IPAs that Southern Indiana has to offer.
