One of our new breweries bottling for the first time. I've enjoyed this beer on tap many times without doing a review.

Pours a bright orange/red with a 1.5 finger off-white head. Good lacing and retention.

Dank aroma. Weed with some grapefruit and tropical fruits. A decent amount of caramel malt to balance it out, but the hops shine through.

Flavor follows the nose. Citrus especially grapefruit hit up front. A touch of caramel peaks in, but the hops are still the prominent flavor. Finishes slightly piney with a big grapefruit pith kick. Bitter grapefruit lingers on the back of the tongue.

Just a touch sticky with good carbonation levels.

This is rapidly becoming my go to beer at bars if it's all stuff I've had before. I could (and have) drink this all day. Good bitterness, but still pretty smooth and tasty. Looking forward to more out of this upstart and definitely psyched they now bottle.

A. Dark orange yellow pour with a solid inch thick head. Head faded raher quickly. Nice lacing.

S: great citrusy and floral hop scent. Much stronger than I was expecting. Wow that is a great smelling beer!

T: nice well balanced flavor. Kind of sweet up front with a solid hop bitter finish.

M: nothing spectacular. Soft up front then a dry finish.

O: I bought this beer as a last minute decision because I had never see it before and it is brewed in my state. Definitely glad I did. This is a pretty well balanced IPA with an awesome scent and great taste. I think I like the scent a little better than the taste itsself, but overall I, very glad I picked this up. Wish I had bought more than a single to taste.

Birthday beer #3. On tap at Binkleys and my first beer from Triton.

It arrived a clear dark copper in color with a one finger creamy white head. The nose is moderately piny, dry, resinous, and bitter. The flavors are piny, fresh, resinous, and have an interesting crystal malt esque thing going on in the aftertaste. Nice addition! It adds a little something unique. It drinks light and dry with good carbonation. The alcohol isn't present at all. It drinks nicely. This is a nice IPA. I'm glad my first impression of Triton is a good one. Keep up the good work!

Had on tap at Bleacher's.

A- Pours a light hazed golden orange color. Two finger white head shows good retention. Nice sheets of lace form as I drink this one down.

S- Citrus overtone in aroma right off the bat. This lingers pretty much throughout the whole nose. Light undertones of bready malts show up toward the middle. Hints of floral hops in the ending with a light alcohol crispness.

T- Huge citrus hop bite right off the get go. This leads to a light bready malt toward the middle of the beer. Light malts die down in the ending and there becomes another burst of citrus hops. Hints of floral hops come through toward the end with a nice alcohol cleansing to the overall ending.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is lively and good for the style. Lots of citrus overtones left on the palate. Aftertaste is light alcohol, lingering citrus hops, hint of bready malt and a slight floral hop. Flavors were hop forward which show off the style well. No off flavors were present while drinking this beer. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.

O- This beer was a great bright west coast inspired IPA. Bursting with citrusy hops this beer doesn't overdue it. Not a hop bomb but very flavorful. Nice homemade IPA made in Indiana!!!
