Can. Light amber, hazy, with a thin head. Has that rich chewy rye character that goes with sort of stale hops. Moderate bitterness, light rye character, a touch of piney hop in the finish. Ok,

Can. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Nice citric and piney hops aroma, just a bit stale, with malt, and some spicy rye. Sweetish malt flavor with toast, a bit of caramel, some rye, and a bitter hops finish, a bit piney and citric. Medium-bodied. Decent, but could be fresher.

Pours clear to slightly hazy pale amber with two fingers of ivory head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, good lacing. (3/5) Nose is bright citrus and tropical fruit, pale malt, pine resin, mild rye. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light sour. (7/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Quite a pleasant rye IPA - very well-balanced, both in terms of the hop bittering and the pale malt, but also in the contribution of the sour rye. Iíve found that rye IPAs can sometimes be a bit aggressive in the rye notes - which isnít necessarily a negative - but itís interesting to have one thatís a bit more even-handed in its approach. I have to say, Iím liking this brewery - solid products, if not quite stellar. (15/20)
