Notes/Commercial Description:
In the Ozarks, the masked bandit is notorious for raiding the corn patch. Or, for finding—and eating—the perfectly ripe watermelon in the garden just before it's picked. Our handcrafted Masked Bandit India Pale Ale is a black rye IPA that is raccoon proof…as long as the raccoon in your neck of the woods isn't a hop head.

A - Poured a jet black color with a one-finger light brown color with a one-finger head of foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of pine, roasted malt and subtle notes of chocolate.

T - It had a great piney bitterness with a burnt toast maltiness and hints of dark chocolate.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale.

O - This was a really good Black IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
