COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

fiver29 (1035) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Sample at the brewpub pours light amber color with off white head. Aroma is grassy IPA all the way. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and has grassy hops and finishes somewhat grainy. Just an average IPA.

BelgianBeerGal (3191) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Draught in KC. Clear gold color with a medium white head and sheet lacing. Light fruity hop aroma. Flavor was more hop resin with a little of the malt poking through. Long finish with lingering bitterness. Pretty nice.

MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Good hop aroma. Lots of citrus notes. Hints of caramel malt in the aroma. The more I smell this the more I like it. Floral notes come through in the aroma as it sits. Nice orange amber color with full long lasting head. Nice flavor with hops and malt well balanced. Very nice flavor. Each sip makes me wonder if the malt or hops is the main flavor. Very tasty. Full bodied with a pleasantly somewhat sweet aftertaste. I like this beer. I wasn’t expecting such a happy smile on my face, but this is damned tasty beer. I’m leaving with a growler of this for sure.

unclemattie (4187) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Both Tap & Cask @ McCoy’s Public House. Light orange color. Nice rocky white head. Complex hop character. Nice combination of West Coast bittering of citrus, earthiness, and light pine. Very nice lacing. Rich malt backbone. Aroma has a nice fuggle hop and bready biscuity malt. Very nice caramel, crystal malt. Medium bodied.

Cask version was a bit lighter in body. It did bring out a bit more of the hop bite. Much more pleasurable session.

Andbrewer (18) - St. Joseph, Missouri, USA - FEB 25, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Quite tasty. Strong aroma of hops and malt, as to be expected. Filtered through hops 3 times if I recall correctly, so higher on the IBU scale, but not terrible. Balanced very well. Very enjoyable. Will drink again.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 14, 2009
brewpub in kc. Nice malt flavor, underplayed behind a wonderful hop presence. Nice aroma, but it’s the heavy hop bitterness that gets all the attention in the beer. It definitely has that fresh, ’craft-brewed’ flavor. Drinking one of these made me want another so i bought a growler.

Sampler at the brewpub. It was a fine IPA, the best beer they make on a regular basis (half of them suck balls)> Has a lighly sticky lacing and a clear orange/copper color. Aroma is lightly fruity hops that are sweet and perfume-y/ Taste is similar with just a bit of residual sweetness.and a low bitterness.
