COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AON is the first beer I made at the brewery. It is a hop sandwich brewed with Simoce & Columbus hops, which are the greatest thing in the world besides a good smack in the face

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)

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 wasn’t over the moon about this, but it’s worth a go.

Bottle at a tasting at Butler's place. Pours golden Amber yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly floral and fairly malty. Flavor follows and is sweet. Nice very drinkable ipa. Thanks to Craig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (879) - Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2015
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.

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 (10080) - 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.

RobertDale (4266) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle at SRBG Friday Dinner. Pours golden orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma of citrus, topical, and pine. Taste is grapefruit, orange, tropical, pine, and some caramel malt. Nice.

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.
