Rail Splitter IPA

This 7.0% ABV India Pale Ale is from the Triton Brewing Company of Indianapolis, Indiana. It is their flagship beer. The beer pours a deep copper in color. There is a short head of off-white foam. The aroma is hop forward, citrus, orange, a touch of pine, a note of spiciness, and some caramel malt. The taste follows the aromas, lots of citrus and orange, zest, juice, peels, with a dank, hoppy funk note, over caramel malt. It is medium bodied, but drinks easy, especially for 7.0%. It has a moderately to amply bitter finish, giving notes of squeezed grapefruit rind. This is a solid American IPA, and a good choice as their flagship.
