Nice deep orange-copper color with nice head, it has a wonderfully sweet-malty and bitter-hoppy aroma. Great flavors, with excellent pale sweet malts and nice deep crystal toffee/caramel tones; excellent hops with great citrus/grapefruit and pine flavors. Goes down well, with that nice hop rough feel. Good stuff!

Pours from the pint can a cloudy, murky amber, with attractive head of off-white foam. Lace is spotty.
Nose is nice tropical hops -- I get pineapple, citrus, mango...very very nice!
Taste is brisk and bitter up front, and noticeably carbonated heavily. I get sour grapefruit most prominently here. Lift Off is a refreshing IPA with a light, drinkable body (despite the heavy 7.2% ABV). Definitely a solid and well-done IPA -- not a game changer, but solid.

No freshness date.
Hazy orange with a finger of foam on top, dripping with soapy lacing around the edges.
Citrus peel and pale malt in the aroma, fairly aromatic.
Orangey citrus sweetness, piney hop bitterness, light pale malt in the middle and some lingering bitterness of green botanicals in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, smooth feel. Pretty classic and easy drinking. Would pick this up again if I saw it.
Thanks to Howard for this one!

On tap at The Tap in Bloomington
Pours somewhat murky orange with a few reddish hues. Nice 2 finger off-white head with decent lacing and retention.
Classic American hop presence in the aroma. Some citrusy fruit with pine and a little floral essence.
Very well balanced flavor. Crisp citrus up front, but there is a strong bready malt backbone that is not as evident in the nose. Finishes with a bit of grapefruit and pine, but not overly bitter. My girlfriend who hates most IPA's even enjoyed the balance on this one.
Creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Solid beer from a new brewer who appears to be doing things right so far. It was advertised as a West Coast IPA which I wouldn't necessarily agree with since it had more malt than is typical of that sub-genre. What it is though is a extremely well balanced smooth IPA and a superb beer for a brand new brewery.
