A-Translucent orange, some carbonation with a two finger head

S-Citrus, earthy pine and floral notes. Nice and hoppy.

T-Similar to the nose, citrus, pine and floral notes. Nice bitterness and good balance.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation, crisp and easy drinking.

O-A good IPA from a small town brewery. Bitterness and balance there, not malt heavy. How local breweries should do it.

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.

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.

A very solid beer. I really like the bitter balance with the malt flavor. There is a really good balance between aromatic hops and bittering hops. Really good hop nose on this one. I can see why it won a gold medal at the Indiana Brewers Cup Competition. Every sip tastes better than the last.
