3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light Amber. Nice rye spicy nose with some fruitiness. The mouth isn’t spectacular, and lacks balance. Moderate bitterness with some rye slickness but lacks balance though still not balanced.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Modern Times pint glass
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Purchased: Dec. 9, 2014
Consumed: Dec. 11, 2014
Poured a caramel, orange, amber, semi-clear color with four fingers of frothy, white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass to the top. Evened, layered, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Thick retention all the way down. (Sight - 4.13)
Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops up front. Got floral, Centennial, Citra, rye and Cascade. Light grapefruit, lime zest, pineapple, caramel, tropical and tangerine wheat. (Smell - 4.13)
Tasted earthy rye hops, caramel, metallic notes, light bitter grapefruit, lime zest, pine, Cascade hops, boozy rubbing alcohol and faint floral hops. (Taste - 3.50)
Medium body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.38)
This beer was OK for a rye beer, but nothing extraordinary. I had high hopes after the look and smell, but it disappointed from there. (Overall - 3.50)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can courtesy of a trade with paiste2002. Woot, a new brewery to try! Pours a hazy amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of spicy rye and resinous pine. The flavor is equally enjoyable with a nice balance of malt, spicy rye, resinous pine and a bit of citrus. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Solid.

Can. The look is a lacing decent off white head, copper orange in color, and a slight haze. Styrofoam in the smell and burp. Rye in their with some malts. Hops fruit, ok, nothing great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a chill hazed golden brown from the can with dissipating off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is heavy on the rye and caramel malt with faint citrus hops behind it. Taste is more balanced between the malt and hops, but still pervasive rye, nice bittersweet finish. Not a bad beer, I’m sure it’s better fresh, this has oxidized a bit, but all around solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA
Hazy light amber color with small compact head. Lean IPA, the rye adds a mild nice edge to the flavor; the hopping is quite resiny, with some bitter oranges in the end.
Clean and very nice.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, especially for an IPA out of a can. Seems too light for a rye. Not as much flavor as a rye out of a bottle.

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.
Temecula is a fun word to say.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a heavily hazed copper with a red hue and a right tan head. Nose has a strong rye spice to it, malt up front, caramel and grain. Hops are citrusy with a bit of pine and slightly stale. Taste is a bit more fresh, not as spicy or malt forward. Much more balanced, citrusy and piney with a light hop resin. Finish is where the rye spice comes in with a light bitterness and mildly carbonated medium body.
