12 ounce can compliments of Trent!

A cloudy orange rusty look to it with a big head of creamy, vs, billowy foam. Great lacing.

The nose is big on grapefruit and pine. Somewhere, deep down, I get hints of some malt character.

Well, the malt showed up in the taste with a nice smooth bite(haha) of caramel. It goes beautifully with the aggressive pine and grapefruit. This *almost* tastes like a 2 or 3 year old Bigfoot. Don't laugh.

The body here is pretty big; another resemblance to the beer I mentioned above.

Well, I'm pretty damned impressed with this IPA. Very damned impressed!

By synchronicity,i first tried this IPA about the same week that i first went & visited Mounds State Park in Indiana...

This is a beer so cool that i can imagine Bob Dylan,Tom Robbins,Hunter S.Thompson,Jerry Garcia,Philip K.Dick,Tom Waits,David Foster Wallace,Kurt Vonnegut,Jack Nicholson,Jim Morrison,Howlin' Wolf & Jack Kerouac all setting around drinking together!

It absolutely rocks & don't let anyone tell you any different! Get it there at the source & take some home in a growler if you can!...& Cheers!

L - Pours a cloudy amber, reddish-brown...a finger's worth of light-white to tan-like colored head...oh,&The lacing just knocks your glass back & says hello!

S - As someone else noted,the nose is refreshing and crisp...w/caramel/malt coming through.

T - a somewhat sweet, but defiantly malty IPA.The hops has some citrus hanging with it,but more malt than anything else is what comes through loud and clear!

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied.
