From a can with date of 4/7/20. Purchased at Iron&Glass; in Minooka.
Pours cloudy with ample white foam from a vigorous pour. Good retention but great lacing: spider web and thick at the same time.
Aroma is pineapple, papaya, resin, and green hops. Subtle sweetness.
Taste drops off. The watery mid-taste feel lightens the sense. Pineapple, orange and that's about it. Resinous hops in the finish with a bit of green hop and/or over carbonation burn.
Medium body but that may be a stretch as the beer feels watery. Medium carbonation. Dry. Slight bitterness.
Riverlands has been making some good beers. I have put them on my list with Hop Butcher to the World and Noonwhistle for consistently good NEIPAs. Unfortunately the wateriness to the body takes away from the taste as well. Enjoy!

Named after the motto of Saint Charles, Pride of the Fox is our house pale ale. This is one of the beers we take the most pride in, and we feel it exemplifies our style and personality. It's the perfect beer to enjoy while relaxing with friends in our taproom.
This complex pale ale blends citrus, mango, and pineapple with hints of pine from the huge amounts Citra. A lightly bready malt body underlines the hops and provides a silky smooth base. Our house ale yeast ties this beer together to make a flavorful yet easy drinking experience.
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
