4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a cloudy deeper orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of bitterness and piney hops with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Some mild caramel too. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. A solid example of the style.

Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. Nose...delightfully hoppy, floral and fluffy. Palate...crisp, bright and fresh with fruity hops and nips of pine. The simcoes give this IPA a nice pop and a clean finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. pour at Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar. Aroma: Strong apricot/peachy hop notes with a seemingly solid caramel/sweet biscuit malt nose. Appearance: Slightly hazy, copper colored beer with a skin of tan, bubbly head. Flavor: Good peach/herbaceous bitterness up front with a little grapefruit; caramel malts are pretty healthy, but do dry out and lead to a bitter finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Reminds me in some respects of a lighter Hopslam. I wasnít over the moon about this, but itís worth a go.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange copper with a creamy off white that retsina well and leaves good lacing. Aroma has lots of citrus with some biscuit malt, tropical undertones and gets catty as it warms. Taste of citrus rind, some tropical fruit, dankness, a hint of malt sweetness and a big briny bitterness. Finishes with a long lingering briny bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi oily with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Big flavors and bitterness that you find in quality IPAs, but they seem to be competing somewhat instead of totally complimenting each other.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft. One of the best IPAs Iíve 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... RBSG 2014Ö 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.
