3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad IPA. Orange in color, little head. Slightly weak on the palate. Hops are strong, piney, though the rye character is too understated for my tastes.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice combination of rye and grass with underlying grain and grapefruit. Aroma has grapefruit and pine upfront with a nice rye backing. Extremely drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mostly translucent orange amber with a smaller off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of mixed citrusy hop notes, some caramel notes and pine. Flavor almost matches the aroma. Nice and dry. Well done rye IPA

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Blind Tiger on 1/19/2013. Pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma is rye bread, honey, and floral. Taste is definitely more rye than IPA. Flavor is sweet and malty with rye bread and a little bit of a hoppy citrus character at the end. Very good RIPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
sample at brewpub off gold color Frothy off-white head. Nice citrus forward hop aroma. Toasty and clean, this is almost more of a great APA than an IPA. Either way, really well done, well above par for blind tiger. Classic taste profile, not over the top, but well hopped and quite enjoyable
