On tap. Light orange with brief white head. Hoppy resiny aroma. Taste initial sweet malts, followed by the hops - some citrus but to me mostly resin/pine. Not bad but not that notable either.

A surprise, to be sure. I have been disappointed by some STL breweries, but this was a highly sessionable and well balanced IPA. Floral hop aroma and citrusy but not harshly bitter flavor.

Smells like cotten candy. Dark copper. Medium body, lasting soft bitterness. Decent ipa.

Draft at the Bridge in STL. Hazy orange-amber with a creamy head. Drinks with an almost milky consistency, a nicely balanced beer that leans heavily on citric hoppiness but also brings a great backbone. Great intro for me to this new brewery. (#4934, 1/24/2013)

750mL bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck), pours a cloudy dark orangey amber with a huge, lingering foamy white head. Aroma is full of piney hops, some resin to a lesser extent and a big whopping caramel malt backbone, but dominate by the pine. Flavour is extremely refreshing and crisp, full of rich piney hops, some resin, and a solid caramel and biscuity malt backbone that gives the body strength. Almost a bit of honey sweetness in there too. Creamy, butter palate that is way too easy to drink. Full of flavour, with a potent hop characteristic without almost any astringency. Excellent stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, probably about 6 months old. Clear amber with a big off-white head. Aroma is hops, mostly floral, with a big caramel malt profile which I think is because of the age. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, with a good amount of malt. Finish is bitter. Medium body, well carbonated. Not bad, but wish I had drank it when it was fresh.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Almost clear golden. A small white head. A pleasant caramel and floral aroma. A mildly bitter flavor with lots of malts. This is borderline impy. Nice.

Great citrusy aroma, grapefruit is there as well as orange, fucking simcoe manne. Good shit. Pale malt, light sweetness, a little bread and biscuit. Pours bright golden orange, great head and lace. Solid clarity. Flavors of citrus - juicy grapefruit and orange with some danky notes up in there as well. Light malt presence, pale and a little bread/biscuit. Just a tad of sweetness. Good fucking shit super drinkable. Would love to try this one tap.

Tan to orange with just a touch of haze, nice white head and very good lacing. Smell is nice and hoppy, although a bit funky IMO. Dry, earthy malts mix with tons of hoppy aromas, along with plenty of pine and grapefruit. Taste follows but without the funk that I detected in the smell. Body is medium and slightly oily with hops, with a sweet, pungent hoppy aftertaste. Bitterness is noticeable but nice. It’s a very fine IPA, definitely worth a try. This one leads me to want to try more from 2nd shift.
