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.

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

An average IPA. The aroma windows of citrus hoppiness. The color was a slightly dark golden with a small head. The palate was relatively light with a decent amount of carbonation and crispness on the finish. The hoppiness was there but not too harsh on the bitterness. The malt and caramel flavors could’ve been amped up a little bit. Overall an okay beer.

A slightly better than average IPA. Really mild with a touch of citrus. Lots of hay and grass.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Clear, light. Opper color. Sticky white head. Earthy, malty and hop cone aroma. Bitter, malty, and somewhat heavy for what it is. Finish is a bit shatp. Bitterness lingers on the tongue for quite a while.

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at the Foundry. Pours a clear amber gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has light grapefruit with a bit of pine and a pretty strong bread backbone. Flavor is similar with pine and bread combining and backed by a touch of grapefruit.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pint at McCoys. This arrived in a shaker pint very clear with some copper color. An off white layer is less than a finger. A soft flral and pale malt aroma. There is floral in the flavor with citrus.. Bitterness is fairly big and the hops seem fresh. Biscuit is light.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Tap at McCoys in KC. Big ass lacing on clear orange. Sheets. Citrus, fruity aroma with par for the course DMS vegetal notes. Astringent hop flavor with sweetened juice box taste. Finishes with mild stomach acid / butyric acid lacerative harshness. Ouch.

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.
