Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer brings together tow of our favorite ingredients; hops and rye - serious hops up front provide a pungent, floral, and citrus character. We use centennial, Columbus, and Cascades in this hop lovers dream. The rye provides a slightly spicy flavor and a full mouth-feel.

Good looking beer. Hazy dark gold-ish/orange. Creamy white head that lingers. Pleasant smells of tropical fruit, pineapple and orange. Smooth, balanced taste with hints of peach, melon, grapefruit and flowers. This beer has a medium to long, pleasant finish.

Saint Louis' best distributed beer. Even keeled, with an adventurous cascade underdog. Drinkable, favorable. No bitter after taste. It hangs on the top of the tongue and dissolves by the second slice of imo's.

On draft in pint glass at The Crow's Nest in St.Louis, MO.

Very lightly hazy amber appearance. Solid mid-west style IPA albeit nothing fancy. Some citrus, tropical front with a descent bitter finish coming from the rye.

Picked this up in my brief stay in St. Louis.
Really nice aroma with an abundant fruit (mix citrus and light sweet) with a notable spiciness from the rye. Really quite nice. Big full head and Yellowish/organish body that is somewhat cloudy with lots of bubbles rising in my SA glass.
Taste is less impression but still pleasing. Good mix of hop flavors with the rye and a firm streak of bitterness without excess and mild shorter finish. Good fullness to the body enhanced by soft carbonation that is ample.
This is a good solid drinker.

Amber color. Bought in a can but still a decent head. Nose sweet malts, pine, orange peel, bread. Taste orange, nutty, citrus, toffee, hints of pine and caramel. Clean finish. One of my first 4 hands beers. Decent and drinkable. I wouldn't call it a true IPA because the maltiness more forward then the hops. Good beer overall.

Golden color. Fine white head. Dry finish to my palate. Bitter at the end. I bought a six pack of cans. Great can art. Very unique. I moved to Kansas City from the east coast and am enjoying the beer varieties here. This one included.
