Had a couple pints of this on tap while I stopped at the brewpub for lunch. Really good service! Hadn't heard of SRM, though???

Appearance - dark orange; typical of an APA. Sticky, intricate lacing.

Smell - flowery, citrusy hops.

Taste - bitterness well balanced with the sweet. Think Torpedo. Don't plan on drinking anything else they brew after having this...you may not be able to taste it.

Mouthfeel - sticky without being syrupy/thick.

Drinkability: High! Great taste, good ABV%, excellent value (I paid $3.75/pint). What else can you ask for? If you find yourself in Indiana, give this APA a try. It won't disappoint.

Serving type: on-tap

This is one of my go to IPA's--in fact I keep a keg of this in my kegerator on a regular basis.

Appearance - Lovely dark orange color-a thing of beauty. Lacing throughout is very intricate.

Smell - Initial aroma is not overpowering, but the citrusy hops are evident throughout.

Taste - This is not a monster hop bomb, but the bitter flavors are well balanced. For 7.5%, it hides the alccohol well and drinking several of these in one sitting can be quite easy.

Mouthfeel - Starts off thick and rich, but finishes with a citrusy tartness. Delicious from the start to the end of the glass.

Drinkability: This is a very drinkable IPA, which is why I keep bringing it back to the kegerator. Usually like to rotate all the different IPA's, but this has become a constant companion. Great value when compared to the other great IPA's out there. Be sure and check it out if you are in the area.

3.81/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A very nice IPA. Head is a little weak. Color is medium copper. Flavors of light citrus, strong piney flavor, good malt background. It's a satisfying IPA - a nice find in the midwest. But then, as one goes east, braumeisters seem to have a more sensible attitude about hopping.

Serving type: on-tap
