I'm pretty sure I had this beer a little past its prime, so keep that in mind. Hopefully some day I can try a fresher bottle.

It looks thin just from the poor. Some beers are thicker than others...this one seems even thinner than water, if that's possible. While the beer is fairly dark for an IPA, it's originally a clearish brown color with almost no head. As it sits in the glass, what's there in the way of a head dissipates quickly, there's a cloudy haze that you can literally watch fall from the top of the glass to the bottom. The few bubbles that make up the head are very white, but gone in no time leaving the tiniest bit of lace.

Very malty nose. A bit disappointing that you have to search so hard for the hops, but they're there. The hop presence is so subtle that I can't tell the hop type...not even between citrus or savory. Slight piney-ness emerges as the beer warms.

Taste is similar to smell. It's got a bready taste with some earthy pine. Very biscuity from beginning to end.

It's very smooth for an IPA. The watery look described in the appearance is present as it takes the edge off the hoppy bitterness. No carbonation, crisp wet finish. Lingering bitterness, but never over the top. Alcohol is well-hidden.

It's not a great beer, but not bad either. The taste and feel make up for some deficiencies and enhance its drinkability. Would still like to have a fresher bottle.

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.

Bottle from CWBlues, thanks Cy! 12oz into a tulip.

Reddish orange, with a creamy cap of off-white head. Dense retention and lacing. Nose is fruity, sugary, toffee, some citrus and mild floral. Taste has more toffee and caramel malt flavours, some herbal, grapefruit and lightly bitter citrus. A bit oily, malt backbone is pronounced. Medium bitterness, lower carbonation. A nice IPA, but I like 'em with a little less malt character.
