Midwestern pride has become a big factor in my beer purchasing, that and buying from the 'little guys', so O'Fallon was a no brainer because with them I get both! Not to mention the great experience I had with their pumpkin ale a few months back. So how is the 5 Day IPA? Well, its good, but I don't see it winning any awards for artistry.
That sounded like a slight, which is unfair. I suppose I have gotten used to breweries showcasing how fancy they can be, especially with the IPA. With this particular brew you get a nice no frills ale with some nice sticky hope to it that really is as 'drinkeable' as the description would lead you to believe. Fancy that, a beer description with some actual truth to it! I liked this beer and plan on drinking some more at a later date, I just wasn't 'wowed' by it.
Good stuff, I hope to enjoy the entire O'Fallon line at some point. Break out the lawn chairs!
