3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer had a very pretty pour, mango skin orange with one finger of sticky off white head. Very juicy nose, raw fruit and citrus flesh with a touch of pine resin and spice. Overripe fruit to a degree. Almost sweet with fruit, touch of grain, zesty/spicy and dry. A lasting bitterness with lightly grainy/bready notes on the finish. Alcohol starts to really show on the finish. This was nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BCBB, Durham. Nice pour, moderately cloudy orange with a big silken head. Nose was bright and fruity at first, then came across more like it had modest grain additions (generic farmhouse) than rye specifically. A bit too sticky tasting in places, and I’m not wholly persuaded by its base identity as an IPA. But it’s a decent effort and I liked it a bit more than Sam did.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the source. Cloudy amber with a small creamy white head. Nose shows some caramel malt, nice rye notes, light citrus, earthy hops. Flavor is similar, sweet and bitter. An interesting beer, tastes like
It has Belgian yeast as their is a strong yeasty presence throughout the flavor. Okay.
