3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Barely clear, orangey, deep golden colour with absurdely huge, creamy, mostly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Minimally strawy, fruity hoppy aroma, hints of orange and mandarine, cautious rye spiciness, some candied orange peel, a waxy touch of citrus fruit peel as well. Taste is moderately sweet, fruity and slightly zesty hints of orange and mandarine, waxy overtones; light but not watery, rather simple but not monotonous. Meh. [No parallels to Maddie intended].

Poured from the 4-pack of tall boy cans, nice cloudy orange with white head. Taste is tropical, pine, sticky, bitter, gritty, and dry at the end. This is one of the better rye IPA Iíve had, far less doughy than most of them.

Bottle. Orangey beer with a reasonable head. The atom is yeasty and fruity, and the flavour is dry is with plenty of bitterness and hops. Overall a nice IPA.

Cloudy orange pour from 22oz bottle at home. Yeasty and maybe grain and honey aroma. Tons of foamy head I couldn't control. Rye and a little boring. Nothing good or bad to say

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with two fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: citrus, rising, floral, sour rye, caramel malt, doughy bread. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light sour. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Not bad, but it could use a little more definition on the tongue. The aromas are promising, but they quite donít deliver on the tongue. Somewhat surprisingly, despite the added sharpness of the rye, itís not quite as bitter as the high IBU would suggest itís going to be. Still, a decent enough drink. (15/20)
