This beer tastes like bubble gum. There's a deep hop flavor up front then a crisp bitterness followed by a rich (but not too sweet) malt. A really good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Mugs in Brooklyn, as a Rye IPA. Herby, tart rye and dry bitter finish. Drying body all around. Rich, nice.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Tap at Alewife: Copper pour with an off white head. Clean cascade aroma with a touch of crystal malt back. Light-medium body. Herbal resiny rich cascade flavor. Clean and feels west coast. Cery similar to many of Sierra Nevadas IPAs. Not bad.

Draft from Barrier brewery. Reminds me of Founders Centennial IPA. Has the biscuit malt backbone. But an added kiwi/lime bitterness. Despite some very assertive flavors, it’s not heavy or cloying in any way. Incredibly, it manages to stay light and smooth.

malrubius (1677) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Growler from the brewery. Hazy pale copper with lasting head and lace. Grapefruit hop and mile piney resin aroma., Refreshing fresh fruity mild apricot toasted biscuit cracker and assertive spicy floral citrus very dry bitter finish. Awesome creamy medium full mouthfeel. Incredibly fresh, which helps. Nice job. Excellent!

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Piney hoppy aroma with light rye malts. The flavor has grassy and piney hops, rye malts, and light earthy notes. Good stuff.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2011
On Tap at R&H. Hop notes of light burnt orange after a rust orange pour. Notes of citrus dominate along side a nice spice and deep rye grain malt backbone. Good finish that contains length.

From tap at Rattle’N’Hum. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and solid hoppy, bitter and dry herbal. Grapefruity and dense solid hoppy. Solid bitter and bone dry finish.
