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.

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.

I had a bottle of this over at my brother's place on a recent visit to Indiana.

Served in a pint glass.

A: Poured a cloudy, dark orange color, with a Creamsicle" consistency, a mild white haze, and a 1/2 finger creamy head on top.

S: Strong scent of orange (juice), grapefruit, and a moderate malt component. This was more floral in nature as opposed to being a hop bomb.

T: Same citrus makeup as the nose. This was quite delicious and I really dug the fresh floral character in general.

M: Just the right amount of bitterness, not too sweet, and the fruitiness was organic as opposed to being artificial. Creamy and well carbonated for the style.

O: This was a great first outing with Triton Brewing Company, a new brewery in Indianapolis. Wahoo!

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!

Thanks to CWBlues for this extra.

A - Pours a burnt orange, amber color with a 1/2" white froth. Some lacing lingers around along with a frothy snowflake.

S - A little bit of pine with grapefruit and malt character. Nothing very overpowering but a good mixture.

T - Lots of pine with some hops. Not much fruit character or boozey notes.

M - A crisp pine bite with a dry finish that does not stick around for very long.

O - A good IPA.
