Mid Amber hue typical of IPA. Hops front forward. I honestly don't get any flavor/odor other than hops. If on my IPA profile ratings I put bells two hearted at the perfect 10 spot and lift off is a mild mimic to it. 7.5.

In a land of mediocre beer (sorry Indianapolis, but try harder) this stands out as a solid IPA. Now my go to if I see it on tap. Worth a try

Started seeing this on the shelves in NW Indiana and decided to give it a try. It was canned 12/21/15 and I'm serving it in my Weyerbacher tulip glass.

Look- Pours a brilliant somewhat cloudy gold color with lively carbonation that produces two fingers of white creamy foam. A beautiful looking beer.

Smell- Grapefruit, mango, and some orange peel. There is some cereal and a bit of yeast in the back.

Taste- Grapefruit, orange zest, a bit of passionfruit and lemon peel. A healthy amount of malt to balance it out.

Feel- A nice hop bite up front followed by a creamy and slick malt backbone.

Overall- I passed on this once and it sold out rather quickly being new to our area. Another shipment hit last week and I decided to pull the trigger out of curiosity and the $10.99 price for a four pack of tall boys. It was a wise decision as this is one flavorful beer that has a nice balance of hop flavor and slick malt making it one easy drinking IPA. I'd love to find a fresher batch next time to really taste it in all its glory. I'll be keeping my eyes open for this one in the future!
