16oz can poured into a tulip, canned may 2016

Pours a clear golden color with a nice frothy white head. Smells of toasted malt, faint grassy/spicy hops. Tastes of bread crust, faint herbal/grassy hop, toasted malt, pretty boring overall. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low carbonation. Pretty bland and overall boring, not much going on

Honestly, for my palate, this was a complete dud. Nothing but malts. Probz because it's a couple months old. Would like to try this fresh. But right now it's dead and not doing anything for me. At all.

An amber color with a hoppy smell and taste with solid malt backing and overall decent mouth feel.

Being from Indiana, I have this one from a tap fairly often. It looks a little more "pale" than many traditional pale ales, but pours pretty well with a nice head. Smells more on the grass/floral end than citrus, with balanced malt profile, but even from a tap (and having the brewery a short distance from my residence) its not much to write home about. Tastes like a lighter version of a pale ale with more of a hop bite. Thinner mouth feel than many other American pale ales.

Overall, its not my go-to Indiana beer by any means and I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to drink it if you live out-of-state BUT its a decent choice, especially for someone you want to ease into the world of microbrews with a mild hop presence.

Side note: this beer is usually EXTREMELY overpriced in Indiana; recommend going to Sun King on their $6 growler fill day to get it, or else you will pay $14+ bucks a 4-pack.

L (4) - Looks like a nice APA. Very light yellow but a nice amount of bright white foam
S (4) - Smells okay. A little hop aroma, more of a "west coast" type of hop to it.
T (3) - Disappointing. It's just kinda bitter and that's it. Almost earwax like. No citrus, no pine, no malt, no caramel, nothing.
F (2.75) - Way too thin here. I never knock a beer too much on feel, but this one is severely lacking here.
O (3.25) - I've now had two of my four of these and don't really want the others! The first one was okay, but still lacking in key areas. I don't see a date on this, so it may be old, but it was kept in the cooler at the store.
