COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AON is an Ipa that has everything you could want in one, if what you want is a hop sandwich. It’s a 7.7% Simcoe and Columbus delight. Only get to make this 3 more times till 2013!

This beer was also known as "American IPA." It was the generic label given to each participating brewery’s American-style IPA at the St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival in June 2011.

On draft. One of the best IPAs I’ve ever had. Beautiful sweet, tropical, piney hop aroma, big sweet, stone-fruit flavor with a dry toffee-caramel finish. Possibly the least-known great beer in America.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Draft... RBSG 2014… Murky peach-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head that stubbornly refuses to go away. The aroma offers citrus fruitiness, clove-like spiciness, armpit musk, stone fruit and pale grains. Full-bodied and creamy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is bitter-as-Hell, rindy and a touch metallic. The lupulin sticks to my tongue like napalm, resulting in a lengthy, rindy, metallically bitter finish. Well-crafted, even if this type and degree of acute bitterness is not at all my thing.

Courtesy of Keir, 7.5% ABV
Hazy golden-orange color with medium head. Deep aroma, animal hop character, some caramel, light wood, almost smoke. Smooth mouthfeel; toffeish caramel flavor, strong yeast character, spicy; strong bitterness too; resiny hops, not fruity, not shining. Astringent in the final.
Not the IPA I expected, but a good beer nevertheless.

Frank (3025) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This is cloudy orange with a mixed bubbled head. Nose is hoppy as you would expect w/ a focus on floral and citrus. This is a bit sweet with a lot of orange and overall a very nice, fresh hop character. It is medium bodied w/ medium carbonation. This is a down the middle IPA that won’t surprise anyone but it’s really well done.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at RBSG Brewers Dinner at Dressels (St. Louis, MO). Pours a nice deeper amber orange hue, firmer haze and frothy offwhite head atop stays as a filmy layer, sticks around and laces well enoigh. Nice stick around. Aromas are touches of bubblegum, faint tropical fruit. Big juicy fruit gum, touches of melon and citrus, tropical fruit, gentle pineapple. A bit bready big potent nose. Initial is a bit sweeter with big juicy fruit gum, touches of melon, gumball and citrusy hops. Bitterness is middling fairly fresh with a potent fruity melange up front. Middle is a bit soapy, sweet, bubblegum and fruit. Touches of florals and bitterness, faint soap. Sweetness and fruit dominance is nice, potent with touches of florals and citrusy trailing hops. Decent bitterness, some florals and a bit grassy, gentle rind element as we finish. Some dryness, bitterness and citrus elements kick a bit more in the end. Touches of fruit, gentle bread and grain, nice fruit elements as that grapefruit juice and rind comes into focus in the backend and finish. Tasty stuff, a touch sweet but as the palate adjusts this really delivers.
