In the Ozarks, the masked bandit is notorious for raiding the corn patch. Or, for finding—and eating—the perfectly ripe watermelon in the garden just before it’s picked. Our handcrafted Masked Bandit India Pale Ale is a black rye IPA that is raccoon proof . . . as long as the raccoon in your neck of the woods isn’t a hop head.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Sampled at GABF. In the glass this was dark red with a small beige colored head. Nose of roasted chocolate malts, some fruit, and citrus. Medium in body. The flavor shows a lot of dark malts but is well balanced with the citrus and fruit. Long bitter rye finish. Good.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2014
16 oz. can from RBSG. Pours a deep brown color, just about opaque, with almost an inch of tan head that leaves some of the stickiest lace I’ve seen in quite some time. Notes of piney, citrusy, somewhat earthy hops, dark chocolate, roast, toast, and burnt sugar. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good black IPA, though as Frank says, it might be more accurately thought of as a really hoppy porter.
