4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-7-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a copper color with a one finger of foamy tan colored head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is big of a nice rye bread and hoppy smell. The hops are mainly of a pine nature but also consist of a good showing of a grapefruit smell. Along with these aromas are some lighter notes of a caramel sweetness as well as some grassy like aromas.
Taste – The taste begins much sweeter then the nose would have let on with lots of caramel and toffee flavor as well as some fruit flavors of a more tangerine nature. Right from the start there is also a bready taste with hints of rye mixed within. While the rye if very light upfront it grows in strength as the flavor advances with it becoming more potent at the end. Hops are present from the start as well. They begin largely of a light pine and grassy nature at first, but are later replaced by a grapefruit hop flavor. The grapefruit really takes control of the hop profile toward the end, and when mixed with the strengthen rye favor as well as the sweeter flavors that remain strong to the end, one if left with a satisfying, grapefruity sweet rye bread flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. Both are fine for the blend of hoppiness, sweetness, and rye all while keeping it a rather easy drinking beer overall.
Overall – A quite tasty and sweeter rye IPA. It had a wonderful blend of tastes and a very easy drinking feel which mare this one a very flavorful and enjoyable brew.

Pours amber-red with a medium off white head. Aroma is sweet malts & faint rye. Taste is a beautiful combination of hops and rye up front and in the mid. The bitterness from the hops takes over in the long finish. This one just simply tastes good.

Pours a nice brown with tan head. Aroma of spice and dough. Flavor matches with more rye in the flavor than in the aroma.
