Nice looking beer, dark orange and gold in color, hazy and a nice, lingering head. Pleasant fruity smells on the nose. Orange, pineapple and other tropical fruit. Malty on the palate on the front end. Really different tastes on the back end, with hints of honey, lime, lemon and orange Feels a bit heavier than some IPAs I've had, but the finish lingers and feels great. Solid beer. Different and good.

This is an aggressively generic Mid-something IPA. It's a joyless drink, and worth buying in the Saint Louis area only if it's three bucks cheaper than any other hoppy delight.

There's malt, yes. It gives a bit of darkness to the taste, body, and hue which makes it serviceable. However, this one only serves to make frozen pizza taste better.

Had a 20 oz glass at Saint Louis Air Port. Was 9am and tasted pretty darn good. A nice refreshing not to bitter IPA.

Slight malt front with a strong bitter hops that follows, it almost overtakes it.

Taste Rating in Words: It's like trying to paint over a wall that someone previously painted black, it just doesn't work. don't use black paint.

Nice Amber color with inch of white head. Nose malty, floral hops, spice notes. Taste is resin hops, caramel malts, orange peel. Nice coating finish. This was my first favorite IPA. It's pretty basic compared to the many others out there but this one has a place in my heart. Easy to drink and not too heavy.

This wasn't the most attractive pour of a beer, it had definitely come in darker than your average ipa. I dunno, did they use brown malt? This is that auburn to brown color with some orange thrown in for good measure, small 1/3" head. Off white. Aroma was like, wooden, not hoppy.

Taste was one of those balanced ipa malt heavy beers. No thanks. It still has bitterness to interact with the woody maltiness. Burton Ale minus the yeast. Like a bunch of toffee on walnut wood and cardboard.

Clear amber color with a bit of off-white foam. Aroma has earthy malt and a hint of alcohol. Taste starts with some caramel malt, earthy/resiny hops but there is also a stale/cardboard note. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it's not really bad. Maybe I got an old bottle but the beer was definitely flawed.

Just nothing special. Malt taste is there, hop bitterness is there although not overwhelming. I got zero citrus notes on the nose or palate which I crave in an IPA. It's drinkable, but nothing to go back to. Pretty underwhelming overall.

Dark amber, copper
Nice aroma
Taste is hoppy with herbal, dank type bitterness. Malt is nicely present.
Good carbonation and feel.
Good but not great, and lacks some of the citrus that I like in an IPA.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy yellow, white cap, some lacing.

Aroma: Pretty good in a piney, spicy, citrusy, floral hop sort of way. Refreshing malt undercurrent.

Taste: Malt on entry with hops appearing mid palate. Rather a mild flavor with good interplay between malt and hops. I can see how this might be favored by those stepping up from AALs but except for hops it's not a big jump. More experienced beer fanciers may find this a bit bland. Clean finish with little aftertaste.

Texture: Medium

Overall: Not as in your face as some IPAs, hop forward of course but malt is present and well integrated with the hops. Not a complex beer but a cut above ordinary none the less.

No freshness date on the bottle. Not too sure if I got an unfresh sample. The biggest problem that I have with this beer is that it tastes soapy to me. The scent makes me think this is older than it should be, though the store I got it from tends not to have a problem with over aged beer; this one was in the cooler.
The other flavors I'm getting from this spill into the amber ale profile. Sweetened black tea with some orange peel. Not sure if I'd bother trying this again.

I feel like this is a nice light IPA. Easy drinking and very delicious. Definitely good for a nice sunny day or just whenever the hell you want. Another great up and coming brewery in MO!
