Notes/Commercial Description:
Missouri mules hauled hundreds of wagons across the West and packed supplies in World Wars I & II. For decades, mules were also the most reliable Ozark farm hands. Like a Missouri mule, you can rely on our handcrafted India Pale Ale. This IPA packs a hop explosion that will not let you down.

Pours a clear, copper/golden color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong hops, slight alcohol, sweet malt, and slight floral aromas. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, hops, citrus, slight sweet malt, and a hint of pine. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, feel, and body.

I am surprised by some of the low marks this beer is getting as it really hits the mark for me. I like an IPA that has some bitterness to it along with the hops and this one does it! I travel to Springfield MO for business so I'll stock up each trip!
A-This beer deserves to be poured in a glass, but you gotta love the full pint cans. Hello other brewers? Love live the big cans.
S-Not bad but could use a little more, still, very nice.
T-This is where the bang happens. This is piney but not too crazy. It's a great hop bang with a solid bitterness, it has a borderline Belgium flavors.
M-This is not a watery beer. I drink this one slow and enjoy!
O-This is not your typical IPA so maybe that is why it has some lower scores. I really enjoy this beer so I encourage you to search this one out.

This one will be a staple in my fridge. Thanks Piney!

Serving type: Pint size can poured into standard 16 oz beer mug. No 'best by' date on can.

A - This IPA pours a beautiful amber color with a ton of carbonation. About a finger and 1/2 of thick head that retains well 'til the end. This beer is a joy to look at.

S - Very earthy. Detected notes of strong hops (the strongest I've smelled from any beer...ever). Very floral with notes of grass, orange, various other fruits and again, hops. Not the best I've smelled, but still not unpleasant.

T - This is hit and miss for me. It seemed as though some sips tasted different than others while drinking the same beer. This beer is harsh to say the least. On the back of the can it says that this beer is a hop explosion that won't let you down...They mean it. It's a hop explosion, but almost too much. Needless to say, I was a little let down. It's hard to taste anything but the hops.

M - This beer is bitter, and left my palette feeling dry, but not quenched. A little unpleasant.

O - This beer is not terrible by any stretch, however, it's just not for me. I enjoy IPAs very much, this one will not stay on my list. Certainly worth trying though if you really like hops.
