Pours a golden color and a strong citrus aroma. Has a bitter and sour taste. It also leaves bitterness on your palate after the swallow. I have to honest, i am not an ipa fan, so this rating probably is not to fair.

A - Pours a clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts and rye with some grapefruit and citrus hops and a touch of pine hop.
T - Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malts with some grapefruit, orange, and citrus hops with some bitterness. Through the middle, some light pine hop comes through with a bit more bitterness and some rye spiciness. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel and biscuit malts, rye spiciness, and some citrus and light pine hops.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and lightly spicy finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice Rye IPA with a good balance of hops and some nice rye spiciness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery during RBSG 2012. Typical golden color with a white head. Slightly candied malt flavors with subtle fruity hops. The rye gives it a nice full body but itís not super evident in the flavor. Tends toward sweet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Bootleggers. Low haze orange pour. Nose is thick toffee, full grain, oatmeal, honeycomb. Very dense and thick. Taste is balanced, thick, rich, very malt forward without any sugary sweetness. Oatmeal, rye, and honey bring a super silky palate. Really good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Breck with friends and family. Pour is clear amber with a fluffy off-white head and great lacing. Smell is distinct spicy rye, floral, soapy, earthy hops, bread, and light Citrus. Very smooth IPA and well-balanced. Flavors of spicy bread, caramel, earthy hops, grapefruit, and a light bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Pretty straightforward and somewhat simple; nothing to look forward to, still not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber pours clear copper with tan head. The aroma is kind of sweet and floral with a slight soapy sugary cotton candy sensation in the background. The taste is pretty spicy with hoppiness and spicy rye like notes. Around the edges are modest notes of sugary malts, floral hops and then it rolls into a bit of soapy to resiny bitter notes. Ok IPA, not something I would seek out.

(bottle from Saarlander!). Pours slightly hazy amber with chunky off-white head. Nice carbonation and nice lacing left behind. Aroma is pine, spice, resin, and some grapefruit. Taste is sweet with more spice and bitterness. Lighter bodied with a dry, bitter finish. An easy drinker that would make for a good session.
