Big citrus (orange and grapefruit) with some subtle malt sweetness. Copper orange with red and yellow highlights. White, clingy head. Very well balanced. Hops take the lead, but the malt holds its own. Probably the best beer available at any KC brewpub.

Hazy dirty copper. Rugged, persistent ivory white head. Muddled lace trails. Pine needles and sweet clementine hop nose, bolstered with mildly buttery toffee. Trace note of candied orange peel. What happened to the robust, pungent hop nose it used to have? Sugary caramel upfront in flavor gives way to moderate hop bitterness. Oily, toffee malt backbone. Sticky, syrup macerated orange hop flavor. Dextrinous, smooth and creamy in mouthfeel. Finishes vaguely floral with lingering hints of citrus tinged toffee candy. Perhaps it's my palate, but it doesn't seem to have the robust hop presence it used to. It is still a tasty, balanced IPA, with a firm, but one dimensional malt backbone.

This was presented with a huge, off-white/light-tan head and there was a lot of effervescence visible in a deep-gold/light-amber colored beer. The nose had a fair amount of hops, but I felt that they would be more suited to an APA, vice an IPA. The mouthfeel was medium with a decent hop presence on the palate, but again, not really enough to be an IPA. The finish had a good hop bite. There was a nice, sticky lace throughout the glass. I would put this toward the bottom of an IPA list. It was satisfactory, but beyond that, I was underwhelmed.

Enjoyed on cask during an after work happy hour.

Presented in a standard shaker pint. Half inch of thick head, though moderate head retention. A filmy lace sticks to the surface. Color is a darker amber red, nice clarity and carbonation activity.

Smell is a pretty tart citrus with a smooth malt backing. Taste is crisp and dry citrus. Malt character is toasty and balanced.

It does finish pretty clean. Usually a hoppier beer will have a mild oily residue. Not here, very clean. I didn't try the standard draft, so I'm not sure how much difference cask is making, but this is a very solid and enjoyable IPA.

A - Poured a clear, copper color with a small, off-white head of bubbly foam. It had nice retention and left sticky rings of lace.

S - Strong notes of pine with citrusy hops. Some burnt toast maltiness in the nose.

T - It tasted of of sharp, bitter, piney hops with a spicy kick. Sweet caramel maltiness with a slight bready taste.

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

D - This is a pretty nice IPA. I'm glad I chose this on my short visit to McCoy's.

A nice deep yellow color with an inviting energy of carbonation. A small bit of head hangs around while you drink it. Smell is a smooth, bitter hoppy odor mixed with a dark alcohol (black velvet came to mind) and some floral scents.

I'm about medium on the flavor of this beer. For an IPA, there isn't a whole lot of bitter in there. Starts of with some hops, but mostly the floral hops take over. Its sweet in this way.

Still a pleasant beer to drink - just don't get your face set for a real bitter hopper.

This powerful quality IPA has a light brown-gold color and a white lace following the brew down the sides of the glass. The ale has a strong sweet malt profile paired with a heavier body and smooth strong bitterness with a nice spicy finish. Very sharp flavors create a wake-you-up beer.

Had on tap at the Foundry. Next to Mccoys and sells most of their brews. Nice hop note in the smell and overall very prominent in the taste as well. No head and lacing what so every but this might have been due to the pour that i had on tap. Very hop forward with great drinkability. This is a great example of the sessionable IPA. If your ever in KC i reccomend it highly. On a side note, i did not see their Double Pale as rateable. But it is amazing.

Arrived at the table in a pint glass. Cask-conditioned.

Looked good. It was lighter than I thought it might be. Had a terrific head and good retention. Smell was almost non-existent. Not sure why because the flavor was full of hops. This was a great IPA in terms of flavor. It had a huge grapefruit flavor. Wonderfully flowery.

There was no bitter left on the palate. Completely clean. I don't mind a bitter ending, but I'm always impressed when it presents itself in full and finishes clean. This one did.

I didn't try the regular tap, but judging from the below reviews... the cask wins out.

Got a chance to try this brewery's wares at the STL microfest - and was I impressed! This one has been ramped up to near DIPA range with it's 6.9%

There are tons of hops (Horizon, Chinook, Cascade, Centennial, German Hallertaur and English Fuggle and East Kent Goldings) in this fine brew now - it comes across as one of my favorite tasting IPAs with the West Coast kick of pine, orange and citrus dominating the aroma and taste.

Quite sip-able, but dangerous with the big booze, that is well hidden. Solid IPA!

this is quality and well made beer, but i am not in love with the recipe. to me, it tastes like what was fashionable ten or twenty years ago, more of a malty and sort of grainier ipa, designed to balance the more intense hop bitterness, but it ends up overcompensating i think, and the hops have more bitter than flavor, which results in a beer that i can drink by the pitcher but dont end up liking all that much. deeper brass even almost copper colored, and there is that crystal malt body and sweetness here that takes away from the hops. its also got a hop profile that has some pine and some spice, almost a cascade complexion, ctz too maybe, but is more bitter than anything else, real high alpha, and super familiar. its a timeless hop flavor, but it seems not as fresh, forward, or interesting as what is more on trend these days. i know they have reworked this one once or twice, but i still think it could use another updating, it just seems forgotten about, tired, i dont know, its lackluster despite being good. one of the least exciting beers these guys do im afraid.
