This beer is one part Brown Ale, one part Rye, one part IPA and 100% Free State. It honors the Dirty Kanza 200 (an endurance bicycle race through the gravel and dirt roads of the Flint Hills) and its independent and spirited riders. Amarillo and Simcoe hops add zest and citrus overtones to the bready and chocolatey base notes of this balanced ale. Despite its dark tones, the citrusy hop notes and dry finish add up to a thirst quenching beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a cloudy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, rye, pine, and a bit of chocolate. Very nice, easy to drink.

Sample (5oz) at the brewpub. A dark brown colored beer. Aroma is hop centric, gets some dank greens. Flavor is spiced up rye around the hops. Solid beer, clean, easy to drink. Leaves a long spiced rye and hop aftertaste. Another solid hop centric beer from Free State.

The murky brown appearance fits its name perfectly. Off white head. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Subtle citrus sweetness accentuates the dominantly bitter flavor. The rye comes is a base layer throughout the taste and gets more pleasant through the tasting. First free state beer after a year long absence. Well worth the wait!

10 oz draft pour at the Brew Pub in Lawrence, Kansas. The pour is a lightly hazed copper brown with a smallish off white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is bright citrus hops, soft malt sweetness and light roast and as it warms, a nice gentle Rye character. The taste is equal part of the bright citrus hope, the spicy Rye and the soft roast sweet malt character of the Brown. The palate is medium bodied, with a dry finish making this quite drinkable. All flavors played nicely together, fun beer.
