A recommended Indianapolis pale ale.

A - Beautiful deep gold, orange color with course white head. Good lacing. Very clear.

S - Nice citrus hop nose. Light malt and grain smell after the hops.

T - Nice citrus hops. Complimenting malt flavor. Very balanced and crisp. Nice hop bitterness.

M - Light mouth-feel. Has some bitterness but is mostly clean on the finish. Perfect carbonation.

Overall, a solid APA with a lighter body and balanced flavor. Good hops and the nice graininess makes for a great summer pale ale. A showcase of the beer that Indianapolis has to offer. I would suggest giving it a try. Probably not the best pale ale in the world but is pretty tasty.

Pours a pleasant clear amber, with limited carbonation and lackluster lace.

Nose is crisp citrus hops. I get some grainy malts there, too, somehow. Either way, solid.

Taste is nicely hoppy (as the name implies), with plenty of citrus, grapefruit, and pine tones. It must be noted that this one also features a firm malt presence underneath the hops.

This is a very fair and balanced American pale ale -- plenty of crisp hops to appease even the most die-hard IPA nuts, and more than sessionable. Nice work! (515 characters)

Pours a hazy dark orange, spotty lace around the edges.

Smells a little mellow, biscuity pale malt, earthy hop note.
Taste is a little more hop forward, lightly bitter with a green dandelion aftertaste. Mild bitter grapefruit zest. Feels a bit under-carbed after the first few sips. Overall it was ok, but lacking in any distinctive characteristics. (351 characters)
