Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2010
22oz. bomber. Very pale straw color with a very lacy layer of froth. Crazy nose from the New Zealand hops that is heavily tropical with mango and papaya characteristics. A trace of rye malt is also detectable in the aroma. The taste is also very fruity with a touch of sweet malt and a strong rye malt flavor. A little bit of dough and bread flavor with a strange almost Belgian yeast note. Excellent light mouthfeel with a slightly oily texture that showcases the hops well. Finishes with a tropical fruit flourish and a very mild bitterness. The best of the rye malt IPAs I’ve tried. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on some.

Draft, City Beer, San Fran. Aroma is just great. Grassy, white grape and some citrus punch. Flavor is just like it smells and damn bold! Mouth feel is spicy and grassy, light grape notes in the thourghout. Great effervescent, spicy, zing in the mouthfeel. Damn I would drink this again. Nicely crafted

Lukaduke (2144) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from the great Ontape ! Pours a slightly hazy warm golden color with a finger of white foam. Nose is pungent from the moment I poured it into a glass. Juicy grapefruit, earthy peach fuzz, fuji apple, orange pith and soe dank pine. Palate follows beautifully... bright hop juice, layers of sweet citrus fruit on the front and some added rye character plays nicely mid to late palate as the dank earth bitterness rolls in and dries out the finish. Yum !

Kroney (154) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2014
On tap at Enzo’s BBQ in Oceanside, CA. Pours opaque golden orange with a frothy pure white head. Aroma is tangerine, sweet pineapple, grapefruit, dank hops, bready malt. Taste is more citrus than anything... mostly tangerine and grapefruit with some lemon zest and pine. Extremely balanced but no discernable malt characteristic... not really picking up any rye aromas or flavors. Very smooth and crisp... drinkable. Leaves good to heavy lacing
