Half Court India Pale AleHalf Court India Pale Ale
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cutters Brewing Company
Indiana, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Half Court is our celebration of basketball fever and the sweat it takes for success. A noble example of an India Pale Ale, this beer pours with a thick white head and hits you directly with the scent of hops and citrus. But be forewarned, we're just as hysterical about hops as we are hoops.

Hate to be negative but this isn't good at all. Maybe this is an old can. I hope at least. Smell is decent. Tastes like below average newbie home brew.

I really like this beer. It pours golden brown with a solid head that retains. It has a truly pungent smell of citrus and hops. The citrus comes through HEAVILY in the flavor. Its sweet and sour taste gives this beer a lot of character. This beer is really worth a try. Going in, I really didn't expect much, but it surprised the shit outta me. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Try this beer. Do it.
