3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at Bootleggers Brewery. Pours a clear yellow/orange with slight white head. Aroma is rye and floral hops. Taste is mostly rye, not too many hops. On the board it was just Rustic Rye, so I was surprised to see it was an IPA here. You definitely donít get the 85 IBUs. Thereís some good hop bitter here, but just not enough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on 7/23/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with excellent retention and long lasting lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, floral and spicy. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. Nice rye spiciness. A touch of orange and orange peel. A very nice IPA. Somewhat different tasting, it is most definitely an IPA, yet it is NOT a hop bomb. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and spicy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours copper with a foamy light beige head. Aroma is rather rye with some floral hop. Medium body with mild carbonation. It really is rye, mildly roasted. The hop does seem highly floral. Might be a touch of citrus. Itís very bitter, and maybe some of that is from the malt. Itís pretty tasty, and stands apart from "normal" IPAs.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle from Holiday, which I fear wasnít as fresh as it shoulda been, unfortunately. Nobody else mentioned floaties. Nose is mild hop and high citrus. Taste is less hoppy and more floral citrus. Iíll have to try again another time and rerate.

Nice dull orange pour, huge lingering head. Abit sweet, not as hoppy as I expected, some spice, pepper there, slight resin, but a little tame for me, its good, just wish it was hopped more. Decent.
