2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An IPA more defined by its maltiness than the hops. Has a definite butteryness in the aftertaste. Tried at the Parkville Brewfest in 2015.

Draft at the brewpub. Wow, this is a giant malt ball with little Americanized hop character. Something is definitely off here, too ... the finish has a definite buttery note, not leaving the palate any memory of the beer’s positivies. What’s a "cross between a single and a double IPA" mean anyway? (#5901, 12/20/2014)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shaker pint draft at the brewery taproom in North Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is lightly hazed copper with a smallish off white head. The aroma is cereal grains, dry grassy bitter hop, and a nice mineral character. The taste is a nice fresh blend of the cracker malt, the grassy bitterness and finishing with the mineral earthiness. The palate is medium bodied, a bit low on carbonation, and the dry mineral finish. Nice one.
