3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into pint glass, hazy golden’ish-amber color, some floaties with white head. Aroma of citrus/pine (lemony) hops, some grass, rye and light caramel. Taste brings out rye spiciness (pepper), biscuity malt and more earth/dank hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low carbonation, soft, crisp with some lingering citrus bitterness. I feel spring coming drinking this, or maybe its looking out the window watching the snow finally melt on this 60 degree day. Either way nice bright beer.

Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. A light caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise. A big bready/biscuity middle. Some rye here and there. Lemon and citrus rinds finish things off. A bitter, grassy end. Resiny.

Poured as a taster at local shop. Pours a nice golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus and resin, with undertones of spiciness from rye. Tastes follow the aromas and the finish is clean and refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from 12oz brown bottle into a Willybecher glass. It poured a hazy light orange amber colour with off-white foam, decent head-retention. I’d consider this a "Rye IPA", definitely hops-forward and more layered than most: grassy, grainy, some subtle sharpness from the rye, malty and a little toasty, balanced by pungent American hops: peppery, grapefruity, spicy, resiny, musky, dank ganja-like impression. Light-medium body, average carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel with more grain complexity than most APAs. Well-crafted and very tasty, with a nice crisp snap at the finish. Obvious appeal for casual drinkers and beer nerds. Recommended.

Pint on tap. Nice golden color, good lacing, clear. Good aroma, nice light rye smell. Taste matches, like a non-traditional IPA, not overwhelming, good or bad. A nice balanced crispy taste, long aftertaste. Pretty good beer, but nothing earth-shattering for me.
