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.

Very unfussy. Almost agressively. They left the malts in there and don't mind using that as an excuse to dump the hop truck.

It's an IPA, and an aggresivly unflashy one. I like that. I didn't come for the grapefruit, I came for the Ozark lethargy.

A pleasant aftertaste, too, which doesn't always happen with an ale this heavy.

Dark, hazy amber with only a minimal head form that quickly settles to a layer of suds. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass. Pine and floral hops along with a healthy dose of caramel in the nose. More of an old school type of IPA where malt sweetness was still considered part of IPAs. To balance the caramel malt is a heavy dose of bitterness. To accompany the bitterness the hops bring pine and earthy flavors. Does not seem to be dry hopped as the drinker gets more bitterness than hop flavor or aroma. A larger IPA in body. Has good carbonation that gives some lift to the body. Not really my kind of IPA anymore. But I can understand how some people would enjoy more than me.

Pours out a Great Caramel Orange color.
Thick caramel smell to go along with the color, and continues on with a taste to match. This is a great ipa that does it in its own unique way. at least for me, the malt and sweetness was up front and the heavy hops came in on the tail. Very Nice.

I take my IPAs very serious, believe Heady is the basis for all to follow so happy to say that I found this one from S. MO. This is an unknown gem. Drinks closely to a Double IPA. Wonderful hop aroma out of the can. Balance of citrus and pine. Orange amber if you pour out of can. Wish the can listed hop bill since I think it's so nice. Right amount of bitter on the back. Well balanced with malt. Buy and try if you can find it. Delicious IPA. I want to vist brewery soon...just gotta figure out where the hell Bucyrus, MO is.

Honey-orange colored body; thick, dense head. Bold pine aroma with touches of orange peel. Bready malt tones couple with a fine hop bitterness to make for a well-balanced flavor. Medium-heavy body; slight sugary residuals; finishes dry.

It's nice to come across well-made IPAs from throughout the country. With beers like this, there's no need to be concerned with chasing down (generally) over-priced and over-hyped whalez. From this beer's sticky sheets of lacing and deep amber color to its heady aroma and well-balanced and complex flavors, this beer delivers an exciting and extremely satisfying IPA experience.
