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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle, courtesy of cards04. Slightly hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Light citrus and biscuity hops aromas, some rye spiciness and malt on the nose as well. Hoppy flavour with some more rye spiciness, a bit of malt and a nice full mouthfeel.
