3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle from the brewery tap room, London. It pours a hazy copper color with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is full of fresh resiny hops, with notes of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, rye bread and candy sugar. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a slight tart dry finish. Notes of caramel malts, citrus peel, light plastic note, tea leaves, grapefruit, hoppy piney bitterness. Medium bodied with creamy texture and good carbonation. Overall, the taste delivers slightly less than what the aroma anticipates but this remains a very tasty and balanced rye IPA nonetheless.

A great take on the hybrid. I’d prefer a richer, chocolatey body but that’s probably taste.
