Surprisingly good, and a beer I’ve never heard of. The rye gives it an off flavor which is interesting, and some hops standards are along for the good times ride.

Boyle at home. Pours a hazy brownish amber with minimal head. Aroma is pine slight citrus and malty. Flavor follows with some fruitiness some malty caramel and a good dose of bitterness. Nice IPA.

Great beer. The rye in this really gives off some nice citrus notes. Great orange and grapefruit aromas and flavors. Good stuff.

Orange amber color. Muddy. Piney and slight citrus. Bitter and rye. Too sweet and a bit too thick for my taste.

At first sniff there feels to be very little nose, but upon drinking there is plenty of lingering rye and bitter hop taste to make up for this shortcoming. This beer is bitter, though not as much as some have credited it with. I feel the tnag that you get from the citrus and pine is being unfairly attributed to the bitterness. In all, it isa good slow drinking beer that you can appreciate over time.

Cloudy orange amber with medium to small creamy white head, somewhat lasting with streaks of lace. Aroma of rye, citrus, peach, some pine, caramel. Flavor is much the same. Medium body. Fairly bitter finish, a little dryness. Looking at older reviews I feel like they’ve improved this. Under appreciated.

Pours a dark copper, orange, with lots of floating particles, and generous head. Robust citrus, fruity, hoppy aroma. Pretty bitter hop, tangerine flavor. Bitterness and linger a bit strong.
