COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rhizing Bines is a collaborative IPA using the best of both coasts: Carolina-grown red fife wheat and Dogfish Head’s continual-hopping from the East and Sierra Nevada’s estate-grown caramel malt and Torpedo dry-hopping from the west.

Not a ton of hops in the nose. Pours clear and amber with off-white head. Very thin mouth feel. Way too much caramel malt and not enough dry hopping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
In short: A very clean, sweet juicy-fruity golden IPA, low on aromatic, low on complexity, low on excitement. Very boring.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed very fresh a few weeks after the beer was first release.
The look: Crystal clear pale-golden body topped by a medium off-white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is not exactly a hop-bomb, a smell of canned fruits (canned apricots, canned peaches, etc.) along with sweet bananas. Taste is more of the same. Sweet not-so-fresh fruits, really felt like drinking the leftover sweet from canned fruits, too much booze for a 8% beer, high sweetness sensation, timid juicy fruity hops, hops resin in the finish. Very soft carbonation. Not sure what to make of this. Like drinking a sweet mix-fruit breakfast juice with a few bubbles followed by a resinous bitterness. This beer is as clean as clean can be and therefore somewhat drinkable, but I found it boring as hell, not a bad beer, just really really really boring. And I have no clue what the hell Life & Limb Rhizing Bines means, hey brewers, if you are going to make a beer that insults my intelligence please use simple words so I can understand.

Standard head and amber color; not cloudy. Soft taste, almost like its not a true heavy IPA. Nice crisp, sweet aftertaste. Solid beer, but nothing special.

On tap, Not hoppy, To call this beer an imperial/double ipa is a crime, this is complete crap, more like a bunk belgian pale lots of fruitiness in a bad way, looks great in the glass but the aroma is not good, way too malty, maybe this was a bad keg but this beer sucked major ass. I cant beleive they can shovel this crap to the public this is a disgrace to well made craft beer, avoid this beer at all costs

daafisch (36) - New York, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours an amber color with a thick white head. A soft of sweet aroma. Taste is not as bitter as originally expected. The hop flavor comes on later and doesn’t really linger. The finish has a nice smooth sort of sweeter flavor. Very drinkable and enjoyable.
