COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is brewed with a variety of specialty hops that are hard to find with today’s shortages, including the evasive Simcoe. This beer is clean, brisk and lighter than some with just the right amount of residual hops. The rye adds a spicyness to its malt flavor. Awesome!

22 oz. bomber from Perry’s. It pours a rich golden orange color with a lasting off white head. The aroma has some potent candied hops with pine, peach and florals with a good amount of dry, malty rye. The flavor is super hoppy with more pine, sweet peach, spice and some florals near the finish. The body is pretty thick and oily from what seems like a huge rye addition, but doesn’t taste too sweet. The bitterness is strong and has an interesting character combined with the dry graininess. Overall, a very nice intense Rye IPA.

Tasting sessions with my friend Frank. Thanks! Une bière orange avec une mousse de 2 pouces qui laisse une longue traînée blanchâtre. Un nez vraiment frais (bouteille sans date) de houblons très fruités, de notes franches de conifères de toute sorte, de parfums poivrés de seigle et de malts toastés. Une bouche vivante. Des agrumes et des houblons verts avec l’effet du seigle et la timidité des sucres maltées. Que cette IPA descend bien! Au palais, une sensation huileuse agréable. Un corps de moyenne densité. Un pétillement vif sans être excessif. Une finale assez longue, bien aromatique, piquante, intelligente. Ma 300ième IPA recensée sur le site. Bravo à moi-même et à Franky.

This is a good right IPA the aroma was good but not overpowering very good on the palate on the finish and taste was a hoppy but not overpowering like a double IPA even though was rye.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Slightly hazy golden red with a medium sized offsite head that dissipates quickly. Evergreen pine and slight candied citrus hop dominates the aroma. "C" hop flavors up front, muddled by light ale fruit and a tang characteristic of rye in the malt bill. Lingering pine and citrus hop flavors in the finish, but with a rather soft tone. Mouthfeel is medium light, on the dry side.

Bomber from Bine & Vine (but without "Bite" on the bottle; explanation on back of bottle). Pours light clear copper with a creamy/foamy beige head. Pine/citrus aroma. Med body or better. Flavor is pine/citrus, light fruit and rye spice. And malt. Pretty dry. Pretty hoppy. Pretty tasty.
