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.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of caramel malt and grass, with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar, with caramel and toffee. There is also a little bit of grass from the hops, as well as some butter notes which take away from the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

My first beer from these guys, if I like this I will buy their amber...

Pours amber with 3 fingers of rocky cream colored head. Above average head retention, average lacing

S: Grassy & piney

T: Lemony, grassy & catty hops up front, along with some butterscotch sweetness & some breadyness up front. Honey malt mixes with pineyness, minty & more catty hops. Finishes catty with sharp pineyness with a touch of bready sweetness

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, balance
is a bit skewed by the sharpness of the hops, not unpleasant, but could be better

An alright IPA, the hop mix isn't really wowing me. This isn't really selling me on the idea of buying their amber...

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!

Kinda reddish, pretty clear with a fair head and pretty good lacing.

Smell is malty, caramel malts are accented with nice piney, grapefruit rind and floral hop notes.

Taste is somewhat of a malt bomb at first, really good tasting caramel malts, followed up by a bold, bitter hoppiness. There's a little bit of sweet fruit too.

Mouthfeel is great, very rich and bold, smooth, and full bodied. Bitter aftertaste is really nice.

Overall I really like this beer and certainly plan to buy it again.

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.

A - Poured out a clear, golden amber color with a one-finger, white head of sudsy foam. It left some thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled very piney/resiny with a good dose of citrus. Some burnt toast maltiness was present, too.

T - Very piney and grassy with a strong bitterness. Quite a bit of yeastiness made is seem slightly unbalanced. It has a nice caramel backbone.

M - It was crisp, sharp and very smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a nice IPA. It's nice to have a good, local IPA in a can.
