Description 

Untamed, unpredictable and full of unforgettable character; that's a Rustler for you. This IPA's solid malt base quietly saunters in with a slightly spicy aroma, hints of sweet pine, citrus and apricot tones and American hops for a mildly bitter finish. Rustler is the likable renegade you can't help rooting for.

This American IPA pours a beautiful dark golden to light amber color. The beer greets you with citrusy and spicy hops up front blended with a lightly toasted malt both in aroma and flavor. There are hints of spiciness, a touch of apricot and hints of pine blended in throughout. A clean and inviting hop profile throughout tied together by pleasant malt and a pleasant lingering hop finish made this a rock-solid examples of a classic American IPA. A terrific choice for a particularly hot day.
