Bottle: Cloudy copper color with not much head. Solid hop aroma with toasty accents of pine needles and I suppose rye. Musty hop flavor with a dry grainy aftertaste and a little hairspray. Thick and full bodied. Pretty tasty!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours a medium golden color with reddish tint, average head, huge hop aroma with big citrus notes. Really inviting aroma. Flavor is hop forward, resinous and complex bitterness, with a relative sweet malt background and significant notes of rye. Nice complexity but true to the style. Mouthfeel is substantial and almost chewy. Finishes bitter, but not at all hard on the palate. A new favorite IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Pour a deep golden orange with a creamy white head. Nose is slightly musty tangerines and apricots. Thick and resiny mouth feel. Tons of rye spice and fruity hops on the palate. This is probably one of the most unique rye IPAs Ive ever had. I find the drinkability medium, but overall a joy-ryed for the style.

Out of the bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a tan head. Smells of rye and a little sweet. Taste is bitter with a slight sweetness. A good rye beer from a good brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick, very cloudy orange-amber with minimal carbonation and barely any head. Mild aroma: some spiciness, hops contribute mild grass and citrus fruit. Flavor is a huge improvement over the dreary appearance and muted aroma - it is bright, hoppy, clean, with moderate peppery rye component. Moderately bitter finish, with some lingering citrus as well. Quite enjoyable!

Bottle... Poured deep golden/amber with a slightly off-white head. Nose had rye spice with lots of green -- citrus and pine -- hop tones. Even more rye spice in the flavor with a decent hop bitterness and earthiness. The spice from the rye and hops played nicely together. Balanced and clean.
