Bottle. Fairly cloudy apricot-colored pour with a massive sudsy head. Looks a lot like a wheat beer in terms of color, clarity and head size. Aromas are lightly spicy with a touch of lemon and honey. Flavor is very interesting and much better than my nose led me to believe. An explosion of lemon and bitter orange dominate the whole thing. Deep underneath the hops blast I can pick up a bit of a grainy texture... almost dusty, but the hops presence washes it away fairly quickly.

On tap @ Urban Chestnut. Hazed golden pour with a white head. Lemon, orange peel, and lots of fresh flowers. A good bready malt base. Flavor has a lot of bread and cracker malt. Lots of orange peel, hints of lemon, and some pine. A strong floral character, which is quite nice.

Draft… RBSG 2014… Cloudy peach-colored pour with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is a collage of herbal, earthy and rooty notes - odd for an IPA. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is an assortment of bready, biscuity and spicy notes. Very well-balanced. Trends bitter, but only by a hair. Crisp, spicy, herbal finish.

This is cloudy blond and has a white ring of head. It has an exaggerated orange perfume in the nose, almost like they added some coriander--which I presume they did not actually do. This is lightly sweet w/ earthy bitterness. It gets a bit lemony as you drink it and has a bit of cookie dough malt character as well. It is very drinkable w/ light body and vigorous carbonation and finishes crisp and bitter. A lot of adjective IPA styles turn out pretty bad but a Bavarian IPA is a thing worth having.

Tap @ brewery during RBSG 2014 Meet and Greet: Hazy golden hue with a fading frothy head. Unlike the description I got more than expected "American" character with this. Whilst not a hop bomb it is more dank, tropical citric and grassy than expected along with biscuity pale malts and a yeasty undertone. Fizzy thin mouth feel... yeah crossovert nailed it as a Pilsener IPA hybrid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft flight on tap at the brewpub (St. Louis, MO). Pours a well hazed golden amber hue, dulled and a bit murky, subtle glow on the bottom. Frothy whitish head dies to a small ring, mellow lacing. Aromas are a bit citric, gentle lemon, some florals and decent bitterness. A touch earthy, bready with straw, gentle yeastiness and flaked wheat. Initial is lighter end, a bit fuzzy and citric with lemon, fecent bitterness, nice gentle carbonation jabs. Some flaked wheat, gentle yeast and earthy bitter hops as we press on. A touch resiny, fuzzy with some rind elements. Nice bitterness, faint flash of earth, more hops as it finishes. Light, hoppy and dry. Solid, looks a bit off but it delivers.
