Had on tap at old pro's table in Broad Ripple and I loved it. Went to brewey and got two growlers gave one to my hop head friend now we go every Friday for growlers.
A-good light amber color and head
S-citrus and pine
T-light on the malt so not to get in the way of the great hops. Some non hop heads may think it is too hoppy or unbalanced. I say if you want malt pick from the 1000's of way too malty beers. It is like the DIPA hop slam without the sweetness or high alcohol only 6% most hoppy beers are 9-11% that can take away flavor and smell with booziness. When I do beer tastings I start with the more malty IPA's the finish with this beer as my tastebuds get saturated.
M- good medium
D-at 6% pretty good drink with bold food

Pours medium amber/orange. Minimal head, but good lacing on glass and on top. Hoppy but not smack your tongue hoppy. Mouth feel is well bodied & refreshing. Aftertaste not overly bitter and doesn't last long. First offering I've tried from Flat 12, but will try more. Looking forward to their tasting room in nearby Jeffersonville IN.

Pours a slightly hazy gold, fluffy eggshell head is fairly immense and retains pretty much indefinitely.
Smells of light clover honey and fresh floral hops.
Tastes of fresh piney and floral hops and mild honey sweetness with some biscuit malt base.
Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.
A flavorful and fresh IPA with a clean flavor and a slightly richer maltiness than you might expect, drinks pretty easy and enjoyably. Worth trying.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Indianapolis on 2/7/14.
Hazy orange, nice hefeweizen look
Faint orange, not strong but quite unique compared to other IPAs I have had.
Pine resin, very strong bitter up front. Orange rind, bitter grapefruit notes.
Medium body, nice carbonation.
Walks the fine line between "generic bitter" IPA and complex brew with the citrus notes. A lot of flavor here!

Poured from the can a slightly hazed orange color with two fingers of rich white head. Loads of sticky lacing left behind. Very attractive.
Aroma of light orange citrus, earth, and caramel malts.
Bitter hoppy notes of orange peeland grass along with some caramel maltiness.
Medium bodied and sticky with a moderate carbonation.
A good-but-not -great IPA from Flat 12 Bierwerks.
