Another of the launch beers at the new Flat 12 brewery in Indianapolis.
This is the Flat 12 brew I have been most excited about trying. It is billed as a single IPA hopped to the level of a double. 100+ IBU's. Single/Double = Half Cycle...
I found this beer pretty much lived up to my expectations. It's got a great aroma with a lot of citrusy, piney hops. The flavor is also very hoppy, with little of the crystal malt coming through. I noticed some tropical fruit, grapefruit and pine. The bitterness is noticeable, but not too harsh.
Overall I think this is a very good beer. Perhaps too much balanced towards hops to make it as highly drinkable as say a Two-Hearted, but still a very solid IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
