wedgie9 (2577) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Tasted on 5/12/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle Purchased at AJ’s in Mesa. Pours dark but clear auburn with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to average, but messy lace. The nose is very intense with plenty of caramel malt, spicy rye, and a ton of bitter floral and resin hops. The flavor is the same with the caramel and spicy rye flavors on the front of the palate, giving way to the very intensely bitter floral and resin hops. The body is full with average carbonation and a very long spicy rye and bitter hops finish.

Very hop flavor. Good palate and linger. Rye helps with that of course. And that makes it pretty dry. Balance, for that reason is a little wicked, but that's IPAs these days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
