My favorite Rye beer of all time... So my rating is a bit biased. Love everything about it. Rich copper in color. Aromas of deep, Rye malts. Taste is a quick hit of Rye with pretty big citrusy hops, 48 IBUs. One of the best if your a fan of Rye

Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of hop with earthy/spicy rye. Flavor is spicy rye with some citrus hops. No single flavor really pops with this brew. It’s ok but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle at The New Penguin, 06/04/14. Dusky peach bright with fizz under a tight white foam. Peach bomb nose with lemon-infused cake, honey and lemon throat sweet, tempura and pine needle hop notes. Soapy and shot through with honey and lemon; warm booze, orange liqueur, peach iced tea and sweet deep-fried batter flavours. Balancing bitter finish. Very West Coast. Not my favourite kind of IPA- too much floweriness and cake, but very decent nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rcvd in trade.
The appearance had a hazy golden colored body, one finger white foamy head that dies within a half minute adequate clingy and coated lacing graces the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice rye malt up front. There’s a decent amount of citrus hoppiness coming out along with some pine in an earthy sort of way.
The taste had a sweet and somewhat earthy with an adequate spicy flavoring from the rye. Everything combines fantastic. The aftertaste is somewhat spicy yet malty aftertaste and finish (though I do have to admit, the finish does seem slightly grainy as well).
The palate sits about a medium with a decent harshness of a typical Rye Beer trying to pound my mouth and tongue, but for the most part it doesn’t as it seems balanced enough to not let the carbonation add to the pounding of the mouth and tongue, decent sessionability.
Overall, this is a pretty good Rye Beer that I would be willing to have again.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a golden color with medium white head. Aromas are of rye, floral hops, sweet caramel malts. Taste is of a faint IPA with an grassy grassy and earthiness to it. Hints of pine, spruce, and lemon from the hops. Not bad. Prob a first and last.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium brown with medium brown head. Aroma grassy and piney hops, and some bread-like malt. Medium full body. Flavor is overall sweet. There is some bit of spice, and some hops. Drinkable for sure but I think a little too sweet and a tad out of balance.
