3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at MO Beer Fest. Coppery in hue with a bit of haze. An off white smallish head. An aroma that belies complex hops. Citrus and floral seems to beclassic West coast. Malt backbone is about right. I tasye passion fruit and tropical varieties in front. A little vegetable behind that. Nice bitterness. This is pretty much classic and a nice version of it.

This is a surprisingly good beer. Unexpectedly so. Great hop aroma and nicely balanced flavor which lingers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma consists of a fusion of a hop explosion--floral and citrus--as well as an unexpected hint of butter, and the appearance is a hazy orange with a small white head. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and slightly sweet; also, the palate combines a medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a long bitter finish, which isn’t bad but isn’t the most appetizing for a beer.

Pleasant hop aroma that hints of pine, citrus, and flowers. Sweet maltiness compliments the hop flavor. Hop flavor front is citrus but finishes like pine.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A sweet and underattenuated IPA for those who love dextrins and hop resin. You know who you are. Not ideal, however, for float trips and other hot summer events when presumably they hope we will bring these cans along with us. Pours a thick, opaque, dark red-orange color, something like strongly brewed tea. Not much head despite an aggressive pour. Nose of sweet caramel sugar with tinge of fruit punch. Sweet caramel taste and a rough, sticky, resinous bitterness that builds quickly. There is pine, dank weed, and fruit punch in the hop flavor, overridden by the caramel. I thought this sort of IPA had gone out of style. Too sweet, too bitter, and falling short on hop flavor and aroma. On the upside: Improves considerably with some really sharp cheddar cheese. And I like the Missouri pride. But guys, please put the ABV on the packaging. It’s a useful piece of information.

Can. Pours an orangish color with white head. Earthy, caramel, grassy aroma. Hoppy, grassy, piney flavor. A lot better than I was expecting for this Missouri IPA. Pretty nice balanced IPA

Hazy copper pour with an off-white head. Nice pine aroma with a malty backbone. It has a light, somewhat thin body with relatively flat carbonation. The taste is well-balanced with mild bitterness in the finish.
