Wanted to try a local IPA and this is what I got.

A - Orange color with light orange head. Some lacing. Mostly clear.

S - Full hop smell with notes of citrus and pine hops.

T - Has all the hops from the smell and a mixture of malty sweetness. Good hop flavor and aroma that make it pleasing all the way, almost like perfume. Crisp with some hop bitterness. A good IPA with a slightly hop edge but balanced.

M - Medium mouth-feel with the tones of sweetness. Good carbonation.

Overall, a very solid IPA. I love the hop flavors and the sweetness doesn't overpower but compliments. Perfect blend for an IPA. If you like supporting Indy's brewing culture this is a good testament to what it has become. I'd recommend it to a friend who likes IPAs.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is really light for me - I can detect some faint whiffs of floral hoppiness, but the smell certainly isn’t strong. Taste is actually too balanced for me - only a very slight bit of bitterness, and not a lot of substance. Meh.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed copper/gold in color, with a nice two-inch head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Nice whiff of piney, citrussy hops
Taste-Toasted malt, piney hops, underlying bitterness that carries to the finish. A bit of a watered-down mouthfeel, but very drinkable. A nice IPA.

The color is a deep, clear copper. A light, soft, big-bubbled off-white head forms on top, reaches 3/4 of a finger, lasts a short time, fades to sturdy foam, and leaves spotty lacing.
It's moderately hoppy, though pretty light overall. Citrus flesh and zest sneak out with a light malty sweetness balancing. It's tough to get a whole lot out of, though.
The flavor is a bit stronger, with both hops bitterness and malts sweetness somewhat more assertive. Balance is well-maintained. Grapefruit and orange mingle with a floral sort of note, and it's pretty leafy, but it develops an odd sourness into the finish. Overall, though, it's not bad.
It's a little thin in the body with some spritzy carbonation, which just needs a little time and evens out. It's not too bad, and pretty smooth, though the crispness does eventually fall off.
