Good look in the glass. Decent aromas. But it tastes far from an IPA. Hard to find any hop character over a very malty, creamy base.
Not bad, but doesn’t really seem to be an IPA.

12 oz bottle, light orange -copper color with a white frothy head, nice lacing. Clean citrus-pine aroma, light bodied with a strong hop profile. 6% Alcohol, too light an IPA for my liking.

Pours clear golden orange. Smells of sweet malt with citrus. Tastes of carmel mostly. The hops follow on the backend but it seems nowhere near the reported ibu. Very Midwestern. St. Louis beers are mostly disappointing with a few exceptions. If your looking for an ipa this will disappoint. Would not buy again. At least urban Chestnut has the integrity to put a bottled on date, I'll give them that. But like most st Louis breweries, this seems to be marketing to the crowd that drinks mass produced lagers and not craft beer folk. If i was only drinking corona, this might open my eyes to other possibilities and maybe that is good for Budweiser people, but i find it boring for an ipa.

6/14/17: 1 Pint 9 Ounces poured into large beer stein, gift from brother. Cloudy tan copper pour, generous thick cloudy head. Strong hops aroma, and taste pleasant and bitter. Firm mouth feel, carbonation holds. Overall very good beer.

A mix of piney, citrusy and tropical hop aroma and flavors. Copper to orange in color. Big malt backbone that leads to a creamy mouthfeel. Moderate bitteeness. Resin and dry finish.

On trip to Iowa PSU football game we stayed in Quincy IL. Nice looking town! We went to a locally owned Restaurant called the Abbey and I had the Urban Chestnut on draft.
It poured a rich copper color with a scant head that fizzled out fairly quickly. The initial feel was that it was very much like an IPA. Citrus aromas and some bitter hops
Also had some creamyness that provided a smooth easy drinking brew
T: like the nose, nice citrus hops with only slight bitterness
I had with a dinner of wings and fries and all was good!

Bright clear light Orange, excellent lacing. Smell is floral, sweet citrus. Taste is lightly malt and heavier on the hops, but not too bitter. Very nice. Not a typical ipa where they seem to overpower on the hops. I like this take better

Poured from a 16oz can into a nonic pint glass. This IPA pours a clear Amber color, with a nice white head that has good retention. There is some lacing along the glass. Overall, this isn't a bad looking beer.

The smell is citrusy, bitter hops, and sweet caramel malts.

The taste follows the nose, with grapefruit, citrus rind, and hop bitterness up front, complemented by a sweet malt presence.

The mouth feel is crisp, medium-light bodied, with medium carbonation.

Ultimately, this is a decent IPA. Nothing mind-blowing, not super complex, but still a crisp, tasty beer.
