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.

Not going to review this one as the hops have clearly fallen off

Cool orange and amber color to the beer, average head, lace and retention. Hop aroma wasn't good, inviting. Honestly, I started to think diacetyl.

Taste, lots of malt, not a lot of hops, but the bitterness was there, buttery metal. Disappointed all around with this one (except the appearance).
