Clear golden, tangerine odor, piney, hop bitterness. Excellent IPA, not to heavy of a malt backbone

I've had this gem plenty of times, on tap, canned, and cask. I'm rating based off of tap, as that is how this beer is served at its best.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of foamy white head. Leaves some lacing throughout the glass.
S: An incredible balance of citrus and pine. There is not a clear front runner in aroma. If you're thinking pine, you get pine. If you're thinking citrus, you get citrus.
T: Similar to aroma, a very well balanced blend of citrus and pine. More notably I get orange and grapefruit up front, with pine as the lingering after taste. Quite bitter, as expected as advertised as west coast style IPA.
M: Carbed to compliment. Feels great.
O: One of my favorite Indiana IPAs. I was a huge fan of Daredevil the first time I had this beer, and have been enjoying all of their offerings ever since. Lift Off is an extremely well balanced beer. Since they started canning, I've consistently had it available. Maybe I'll be able to snag a 6th barrel for my keezer soon :)

Nice deep orange-copper color with nice head, it has a wonderfully sweet-malty and bitter-hoppy aroma. Great flavors, with excellent pale sweet malts and nice deep crystal toffee/caramel tones; excellent hops with great citrus/grapefruit and pine flavors. Goes down well, with that nice hop rough feel. Good stuff!
