Yet another Indy purchased beer that seems not at its best. Thick malts with earthy hop influence. It's an okay drinker, but not really impressive. A shame.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on July 7, 2014.

It pours a slightly cloudy orange-amber with a long living off-white head. Some lacing.

The aroma has a kind of burnt caramel malt quality with earthy and resiny hops playing up around the edges. Not overbearing but the hops are noticed.

The body is definitely in the medium range and heading toward heavier.

Odd sort of barley malt, grainy malt start with a low to moderate bitterness at the finish. It just didn't blow me away but it was drinkable enough.

A-Translucent orange, some carbonation with a two finger head

S-Citrus, earthy pine and floral notes. Nice and hoppy.

T-Similar to the nose, citrus, pine and floral notes. Nice bitterness and good balance.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation, crisp and easy drinking.

O-A good IPA from a small town brewery. Bitterness and balance there, not malt heavy. How local breweries should do it.

Big thanks to TDA8 for this extra.

A- Glowing orange body with a hint of amber. Thin off-white head that dissappears quickly and leaves a thin ring of bubbles and some lacing behind.

S- A dash of caramel malts with some faint traces of pine and zesty citrus.

T- More flavor than the nose would indicate, with a nice mix of pine, citrus, caramel malts and toasted malts. Very balanced, but the hop presence is noticeable.

M- Smooth, well carbonated, medium-full bodied.

O- A solid IPA that has a nice rich body and good balance.
