COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The South Wind blew the six original members of the band Kansas in for a visit and we thought we should brew a beer to commemorate the event. We use rye malt for its spicy contribution, and six different hops, one for each wayward son. Amarillo, Simcoe, Centennial, Chinook, Citra, and Meridian for dry hopping. We use California ale yeast for its clean flavor and hop forward profile. Bright tangerine nose with a soft, dry malt character that finishes like dust in the wind

Pours a mostly translucent orange amber with a smaller off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of mixed citrusy hop notes, some caramel notes and pine. Flavor almost matches the aroma. Nice and dry. Well done rye IPA

Not a bad IPA. Orange in color, little head. Slightly weak on the palate. Hops are strong, piney, though the rye character is too understated for my tastes.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice combination of rye and grass with underlying grain and grapefruit. Aroma has grapefruit and pine upfront with a nice rye backing. Extremely drinkable.

On tap at Blind Tiger on 1/19/2013. Pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma is rye bread, honey, and floral. Taste is definitely more rye than IPA. Flavor is sweet and malty with rye bread and a little bit of a hoppy citrus character at the end. Very good RIPA.

sample at brewpub off gold color Frothy off-white head. Nice citrus forward hop aroma. Toasty and clean, this is almost more of a great APA than an IPA. Either way, really well done, well above par for blind tiger. Classic taste profile, not over the top, but well hopped and quite enjoyable
