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.

(750ml bottle) hazy deep orange, soapy offwhite bubbles that are reminiscent of Sierra Nevada’s IPAs. Nose is on the malty side, candied citrus peel, caramel, bits of pine and grapefruit pulp. Taste of caramel, highly effervescent, bitter citrus peel that’s well balanced with the malt, I actually like the oily body and caramel malty finish. Nice beer but not world class.

750 mL bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a white head. primarily a roasted/burnt caramel aroma with a slight hop background. Medium body, taste of caramel with some hop flavor. The caramel comes through on the finish. I was expecting a lot more from two outstanding breweries. Wasn’t impressed with this one.

Pours a light copper color with a small rocky beige head and nice clinging lace. Toasted malt aroma with some floral hops. Clean crisp complex bittersweet malt flavor upfront with hints of cardamom. Spicy citrus hops in mid taste. Nice dry hop finish. Nicely balanced and flavorful.

Bottle Ron shared. Dark gold. Syrupy palate. Nice look to it with an effervescence. A bit of booze. Okay.

750 ml. Pours a golden copper, clear. Ivory head with decent retention and average lacing. Smell is interesting, definitely get some caramel, citrus hops, almost a bready earthy smell, hard to identify. Taste is citrusy, not overly hoppy, although there is a definite IPA hop bitterness on the back end. the malt does have a nice sweetness to it which doesn’t linger too long. Mouth feel is slightly syrupy. Overall I like this beer, but there isn’t anything about it that’s blowing me away. The flavors are very subtle, the hop presence is way more tamed than I would expect being a collaboration of these 2 hop giant breweries. Does have a nice spiciness and citrus as you keep drinking. Decent, yet I’m disappointed.

Sorry, I’m not getting it. I have had the best that both Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head have to offer, and this is way down the list. I had heard that this was just released, but if this is an IPA featuring some cool new hops, it is somehow either an old, stale bottle, or those hops aren’t very special. Doesn’t have more hop flavor, aroma, or freshness than a pretty old bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale. Doesn’t drink like an IPA with a pedigree like it has, and not for $16.

25oz bottle from Wegmans. This is a very smooth and drinkable IPA, but it doesn’t necessarily blow me away. The beer pours a light copper color with a decent off-white head. The head leaves plenty of sticky and cascading lace around the inside of the glass. The nose features a balanced tone of hops and caramel malt, with some hints of butter, lemon and grass. The body is really smooth, almost as smooth as what a hand pump would give you. The flavors start off slightly dry and spicy with plenty of hops, but then turns sweet and malty. I get some hints of lemon, grass, cereal, grain, caramel and rye. The finish even features a very subtle note of banana.

On draft at Mission Liquors. It pours a nice golden color with a big, creamy white head. The aroma is nice and balanced with fruity, floral hops and some caramel malt. The flavor is hoppy fruit and alcohol… definitely a good dose of some caramel malts. Solid bitterness. A touch earthy with a full body and a sweet/bitter finish.

Jow (1863) - New York, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Tap at Stagshead for some odd type tasting thing that seemingly had no structure but tasty enough brews. pours orange with very typical double ipa nose. tastes juicy of grapefruit and pine, with some banana, toffee, and malt.
