4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is dark copper with a thin tan head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is spicy rye malt and bitter hops. Taste is kind of strange. It’s like a blend of rich caramel malt and spicy rye malt on top of various hops. There is a subtle earthy taste as well. The flavors all hit at once rather than blending into each other; if they’d done that, I probably would have given it a higher rating. But it’s still pretty good.

Good looking brew but not too much more for me to brag about. Rye really overwhelms this one.

You can smell a little bit hop and herbs. Taste is herbs, floral. Then comes a little bit sweet before the bitterness appears. Well balanced.

On tap. Wow! I’m a huge fan of rye ales, and this one did not let my down. Citric floral hop notes and a perfect sweetness from the rye makes this a perfectly balanced IPA. One of the best beers I have ever tasted.
