Despite the ban on women in the Union Army, Elizabeth Newcomb fought in the Civil War. Bill, as she was known, dressed as a man and saw combat in several battles. We have named our India Pale Ale after Elizabeth because its looks are deceiving. Although light in color, it is fully hopped with a bold, bitter taste. This beer is not for the rookie ale drinkers, and certainly would have been a favorite of Elizabeth’s.

February 27, 2013 - on tap at Foundry. Clear golden pour with limited head and spotty lacing. Mild hoppy and malt aroma. Taste was nicely balanced but very mild seemed to be more pine than citrus. Finish was slightly bitter. Little bit of carbonation as well.

On tap at McCoys. Pours a copper color with white head. Piney, grassy, earthy, somewhat citrusy. Nice piney flavor for an IPA. Not too bad.

Pretty average. Hoppy. Clear and brown. No head. No lacing. Ok, but not memorable.

It poured a golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was of grapefruit with a little light bread. The taste was of grapefruit and some nuttiness with a hint of bread crust. Not what I expected from an IPA.

Good, not great ipa. Has strong malt presence that goes well with the hops and has a long finish. Suffers from watery weak body. Still, the best beer at the best patio in KC.

On tap. A foamy, near-white head with a citrus and hop aroma and amber colored body. A smooth, hoppy taste with more citrus and bitterness on the aftertaste. A great, drinkable IPA.

Sample at the brewpub. Comes a light orange with a nice white head. Aroma of floral and grassy hops with some citrus and malt. Taste is similar. Nice.
