We dry-hop this American Style India Pale Ale with seven grains and four domestic hop varieties by adding dry whole hops to the finishing tank so the beer rests "on top" of the hops for five extra days!Malty sweetness up front with big cascade and glacier hops in the finish -- a wonderfully drinkable IPA!

12 ounce bottle from Ryan011235, poured into a Duvel tulip. Hazy caramel orange with a finger of creamy off-white foam that slowly settles to a skim, leaving light streaks of lacing behind.

O’Fallon 5 Day IPA
I didn’t notice a date on the bottle, but the predominant caramel aroma and muted citrus suggest either an older IPA or simply a more ‘balanced’ one. Regardless, it’s pleasant enough, but nothing to terribly exciting. The flavor is a puzzle. The caramel and toasted malt I can get on board with, the very subdued citrus I can tolerate, but there’s a really strange, almost beef broth kind of meatiness that’s, to put it politely, offputting. Back to more normal beer characteristics, it’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation, so at least it has that going for it. Old bottle? Bad bottle? I dunno, but something was definitely not right here.

The beer poured a copper, amber color with a thin, slightly off white head that disipated fairly quickly. The aroma is very malt forward with a strong caramel presence with a touch of citrusy orange. Little hop aroma for an IPA. The beer has a very upfront caramel and bready flavor. There is slight bitterness but much less than expected for the style. Carbonation is low and body is weak. and the finish is slightly dry.

Overall, it seems like the grain bill was the main focus when building this beer. The malt overpowers any existing hop profile. In my opinion, there's too much specialty malt in this IPA.

A- pours a hazy golden orange color. solid white head with minimal lacing.

S- really malty with a squeeze of orange. i thought this was an ipa???

T- same as the smell. reminds me of great lakes burning river. has a slight bitterness but no hop blast coming at ya or any real hop taste associated with ipa's. has a fruitiness coming from the yeast.

M- medium/ light bodied. good carbonation.

D- first and last six pack i'll ever buy.

Overall- i laugh at the label saying missouri's best beer of 08 or something. well i hope they have better beer than this now. i'm hoping anyone down there has tasted a real ipa like huma lupa or two hearted. this beer plain out is weak sauce.

A hazy golden amber color with a white/yellow head.

There is no nose - nothing. (Multiple bottles opened with same result).

Mouthfeel is nicely creamy with a medium/big character and feel.

Flavors are layered with a nice burnt lemon flavor but then goes to a bitter weak coffee flavor and with some medium to heavy bitter hop-citrus acidic character.

Finish is light pine acid bitter.

Color: sits a slightly hazy, burnt orange with a big, long lasting fluffy head

Smell: seemed at first sniff right when i popped the cap that it was going to have a great hop aroma to it. i then discovered that as it breathed it totally deflated. great citrus and pine aromas are in there, but you have to struggle a bit to find it

Taste: taste is pretty weak. slightly bitter and yeasty finish which disappears fairly quickly, and not a whole lot leading up that. pretty clean and crisp throughout. any bitterness seems to be completely balanced with malt sweetness

Mouthfeel: surprisingly smooth for as much carbonation it seemed to start out having. low-med body

Notes: had always passed over this IPA until i read in this months BA issue that it was "brutal." it had an APR 2009 best by date on the package so i dont think it was bad. this had a ton of potential, and is a great lawnmowing IPA, but just not impressed

Very run of the mill IPA. IBU's at 66 but did not show in the beer.
It is ready drinking due to lack of taste.
If someone wants to learn to like ipa s this is a good starter....

12oz bottle poured into a mexican tulip - Fridge temp - 2008

Appearance: An orange, yellow and brown beer is transparent with plenty of active carbonation. The head is a huge 4"+, off-white, great retention and plenty of lace.

Smell: Strong pine and grapefruit but mostly grapefruit. A distinct astringency.

Taste: Malt flavor is hlped by a slight grapefruit flavor. The beer is kind of flat in the taste department. It seems like a lot of pellets got added for aroma, but nothing was attributed to the first half of the boil.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and medium bodied. Bitter, but offset with flavor. Alcohol is not noticeable. The hops need to be in the flavor.

Drinkability: Good, although the hops are misplaced and very generous. A decent beer.

I was really excited to try this brew as I've really enjoyed their Smoked Porter; however, I was a bit disappointed. Overall, it's a tasty beer with a crisp and clean finish. But the aroma is a big downer for me; it smells more of perfume/hair product than hops. It really kind of turned me off to it. Thankfully the flavor is in line with an IPA, but for an IPA, it's on the weaker side. Maybe I've gotten spoiled on bigger IPAs, but this one just didn't have the big punch of hops like you'd get in other lines.

Piney Citrusy aromas start The nose, but are backed up by some musty paper aromas. The flavor of hops combat a grainy woodsy taste across the tongue. Doesnt dry out and leaves a creamy malty- musty flavor as it leaves. The mouth feel is rather heavy, and sticks around on the tongue.
Overall, it is an alright IPA.

Pours an apricot bourbon color-- almost a light beige head. Forthy and foamy. some decent lacing forms in sheets but quickly heads back into the body. Great color.

Smells much maltier than expected. A sweet malt with a nice hop presence. I am hoping this is an English IPA-- this reminds me of something that Rock Bottom or Granite City would serve. There is a very little piney hop note.

Taste follows nose. Even if this were an EIPA, it isn't that great.

The drinkability is actually surprisingly high. I could session this one, though I would prefer something else.

The body is a little light of medium, but not in a good way-- it makes it seem watered down.
