By synchronicity,i first tried this IPA about the same week that i first went & visited Mounds State Park in Indiana...

This is a beer so cool that i can imagine Bob Dylan,Tom Robbins,Hunter S.Thompson,Jerry Garcia,Philip K.Dick,Tom Waits,David Foster Wallace,Kurt Vonnegut,Jack Nicholson,Jim Morrison,Howlin' Wolf & Jack Kerouac all setting around drinking together!

It absolutely rocks & don't let anyone tell you any different! Get it there at the source & take some home in a growler if you can!...& Cheers!

L - Pours a cloudy amber, reddish-brown...a finger's worth of light-white to tan-like colored head...oh,&The lacing just knocks your glass back & says hello!

S - As someone else noted,the nose is refreshing and crisp...w/caramel/malt coming through.

T - a somewhat sweet, but defiantly malty IPA.The hops has some citrus hanging with it,but more malt than anything else is what comes through loud and clear!

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied.

I've had this IPA many times and keep going back for this award winner.

A - Copper color with reddish hue. Low head with light lacing. Clear beer.

S - Pungent hop aroma with notes of citrus prevailing.

T - Great hop flavor that shines through with a citrus character and hints of pine. Some orange and grapefruit have a grip on this brew. Smooth with a solid hop bitterness to finish crisp. Some malt in the middle of it with a nice sweetness to give balance.

M - Medium mouth-feel with the tones of sweetness. Lower carbonation.

Overall, one of my favorite IPAs. If you're a hop head this is your session beer. Perfect blend of citrus hops and malt for an IPA. If you haven't tried it you should. I'd drink it every day to give my hops thirst a quench. May want to try it with a slice of orange to give it a stronger citrus flavor.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is a little grassy, but does not have a lot of hop character to it. Taste is a little bit bitter, but not overly so, and has a strong malt backbone to it. Not a huge fan of this...
