3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour. Aroma of resin, honey, and a little citrus. The rye comes through a little more clearly in the flavor, but overall this struck me as a very balanced, somewhat sweet, resinous IPA. Not a hop bomb, but really easy drinking.

Pour on tap at APN 2013, orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of very slight rye, hints of spice, slight orange, hints of caramel and toffee notes in there, slight grainy notes as well. Taste is a mix of lemon, slight rye, hints of orange, caramel, and toffee, touch more spice, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Maybe the sun was bright on my beer but this was more golden than amber to me--I always am paranoid that a bar didnít give me the right beer. This was very much hop forward, though I was surprised to hear it was Citra. I didnít see this as having rye, however. Rye usually puts me off, and while I didnít love this beer, I didnít suspect rye either. (on tap, Groveland Tap, St. Paul)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at BW3 in Dinkytown. Pours a beautiful reddish brown with off-white head. Nose has roasted notes, caramel, lemony-lime hop aroma. Flavor is a well-constructed milldly roasted malt bill - some caramel, some mild toasted bread, some bready/doughy touches - very nicely balanced against hops tending towards some piney notes and tropical fruit flavors. Hops not pronounced but very perceptible. Palate is refreshingly on the lighter side for a darker ipa. I willseek this out on tap - has all the characteristics of a very sessionable pub ipa.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Buffalo Wild Wings Roseville. Pours a rather murky amber and a off white head follows then fades to a foamy film and lacing. Aroma is aromatic fruits and light bitter hops. Taste is more of the above with a decent bitterness from the hops and a fruitiness that lasts into the bitter finish. Palate is medium good carbonation and chalky. Not a bad beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at brewery. Fruity aroma without discernible hops. Murky, muddy amber with no head, yet some sparse lace. Strong hop presence, in the in your face variety. The most hop forward beer Iíve had in some time. Yet not harsh. Very good with a nice bitter finish. Had a glass of water with it that had a really funky taste that I could swear bore some similarity to the taste of the beer. Realizing there are only 9 previous ratings so the mean may be artificially low, but this is very underrated.

Small head that didnít last long. Decent strong hoppy flavor. Strong citrus notes, too bitter on the finish and aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very sweet malt forward. Almost like a lot of honey was poured in this. Not sure what I think of it. It had a low to medium bitterness but not enough of it or of hops flavors in general.
