This IPA is named in honor of proud heritage of the 39th Airlift Squadron. The original Squadron patch was designed as winged coffin. Apparently the powers that be in higher headquarters were not amused, and the squadron was directed to submit a new design. According to Bud Tuley, the units 3rd Commanding officer, they just added wheels and a cover to made it a flying covered wagon - or a flying, wheeled coffin - take your choice. The beer is created using caramel and pilsner malts for a rich golden red color and brewed Zythos hops for a strong aroma.

Draft at the brewpub. A very dark, rustic-looking brew. Well bodied. This is a chewy one. It’s super malty and more Continental than the newer breeds of American IPAs; definitely not for the "Westies" but a good drink. (#5968, 5/14/2015)

suprchunk (2600) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Deep, dark amber colored pour. Big off-white head. Some lacing. Big hoppy aroma. Some notes of malt. Taste is a nice hop explosion. Some malt. Some caramel. Not bad. Not that balanced, and lacking a bit.

At the brewery. Pours a clear pale copper. Vigorously carbonated but no head. Unusual hop aroma, crisp clean palate with decent ephemeral bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3/22/13. On tap at the brewpub. Mostly clear light amber pour with a small khaki head. Lightly dank, citrus, and pine aroma with touches of caramel. Nicely hopped flavor with more citrus, dank, a bit of bitterness, and lingering caramel. This is actually quite nice!

Westmeister (2092) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Draft. Pours a clear amber. Smell is citrus, some pine, clean malts. Taste is not aggressive, medium citrus hops, malt backbone but the hops still shine. Nice.

SHIG (3934) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Draft: Poured a copper color with white head. Aroma is light hops. Taste was a nice soft hops with balanced fresh grain. Very drinkable and could be sessioned easily.

markwise (4750) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
On draft at Props. Pours a medium orange-copper with an off-white head. Nose is a nice malt backbone with some citrus hops, some citrus pith, and a bit of tropical fruit. Flavor follows with citrus and mild pine with some mild fruit. Light in body, and no idea it’s 6.5%. A nice, easy-drinking IPA overall.

bytemesis (4599) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is faint with notes of pine and grass. Taste is grassy, slightly piney; amazingly bitter for how little hops flavor there is. Finish is medium bitter.
