I've had this plenty, but first time reviewing it. Pours a hazy medium amber color with off white head. Sticky lacing. Smell is POTENT! Loads of citrus. Very grassy/wheaty. Just smells heavy. Taste is grapefruit forward with other citrus notes mixed in. Nice bitterness to it. Possibly a bit sour, but in a good way. Very heavy, full mouthfeel. The bitterness lingers and the grapefruit taste lingers. Overall, this is the best local (3 floyds not included) IPA around. So glad they started bottling. Very well done Triton.

One of our new breweries bottling for the first time. I've enjoyed this beer on tap many times without doing a review.
Pours a bright orange/red with a 1.5 finger off-white head. Good lacing and retention.
Dank aroma. Weed with some grapefruit and tropical fruits. A decent amount of caramel malt to balance it out, but the hops shine through.
Flavor follows the nose. Citrus especially grapefruit hit up front. A touch of caramel peaks in, but the hops are still the prominent flavor. Finishes slightly piney with a big grapefruit pith kick. Bitter grapefruit lingers on the back of the tongue.
Just a touch sticky with good carbonation levels.
This is rapidly becoming my go to beer at bars if it's all stuff I've had before. I could (and have) drink this all day. Good bitterness, but still pretty smooth and tasty. Looking forward to more out of this upstart and definitely psyched they now bottle.

Served at the brewery
After having this a bunch of times I figured I'd finally get around to reviewing it.
A: Pours a light amber color with a small heard, great lacing on the glass.
S: Citrus explodes into the nose. Tons of grapefruit just wafts out of the glass. Could smell it from 3 feet away.
T: Bits of pine up front follows by a smooth transition into the citrus on the backend. Hop bitterness is present but totally balanced throughout the whole beer.
M: Good carbonation. For a 7% abv IPA this is hidden beautifully. I could see myself getting in trouble if I didn't know how strong it is.
O: This is the best IPA in town hands down. I love what Triton is doing and really think they are firing on all cylinders. Grab this one if you're in Indy!

Recently visited Indy. Went to Flat 12 Bierwerks, Sun King and Triton. All fabulous. Really liked Triton, but very tough to find. Had to finally ask a cop for directions.
Railsplitter IPA very nice. Numbers may be too high because I really liked the PLACE. Check out the taco truck for sure.

One of the finest IPA's I have tried with just the right amount of Hops and bitterness. Nice beer to relax with and is a great example of Tritons attention to detail in this category. The beer is great either from the bottle or on tap and is now becoming much easier to find around the Indianapolis area.

Had on tap at Bleacher's.
A- Pours a light hazed golden orange color. Two finger white head shows good retention. Nice sheets of lace form as I drink this one down.
S- Citrus overtone in aroma right off the bat. This lingers pretty much throughout the whole nose. Light undertones of bready malts show up toward the middle. Hints of floral hops in the ending with a light alcohol crispness.
T- Huge citrus hop bite right off the get go. This leads to a light bready malt toward the middle of the beer. Light malts die down in the ending and there becomes another burst of citrus hops. Hints of floral hops come through toward the end with a nice alcohol cleansing to the overall ending.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is lively and good for the style. Lots of citrus overtones left on the palate. Aftertaste is light alcohol, lingering citrus hops, hint of bready malt and a slight floral hop. Flavors were hop forward which show off the style well. No off flavors were present while drinking this beer. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.
O- This beer was a great bright west coast inspired IPA. Bursting with citrusy hops this beer doesn't overdue it. Not a hop bomb but very flavorful. Nice homemade IPA made in Indiana!!!
