Danker hops than the Rockslide and darker amber. Much less citrus notes, but the rye is very subtle, too much so for me. Good beer but not a great rye IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Hops and Pies Denver during FiftyFifty tap takeover. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with an off white head. Pretty intense piney, chewy citrus hoppy, fairly spicy rye aroma. More rye spiciness in the flavor is balanced by a nice grapefruit citrusiness. The rye isnít overpowering but is a nice addition. Pretty tasty Rye IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Caponeís. Poured an amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Citrus, some lighter bread / rye, and floral. Rye was present, but overall this beer was on the thinner side and would have like a bigger rye and hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Caponeís: Aroma of hops, citrus, grapefruit, and a hint of rye.
Poured amber/orange in color with a small, creamy, dense, white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Hazy. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, citrus, grapefruit, pine, and resin. Medium body. Tingly, then sticky texture. Average carbonation. Hop, citrus, grapefruit, pine, resin finish is medium to heavily bitter and dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Fifty Fifty. Orange/amber pour, with a sticky white head. Bready malts, light caramel, piney hops, spicey rye bread, moderate bitterness, and some grapefruit. Really nice actually, probably my favorite other then the eclipse.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(on draught at FiftyFifty). Pours a hazy copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is bread, caramel and spice/pepper. Taste is sweet malts with lots of pumpernickel and spice. Bitter. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Dry, bitter finish. Lots of rye (which I like), but like the manifesto, its seems a bit off-balanced.

4oz sampler -
Another new beer on my stop this past weekend. Just an incredible beer. Tons of spicy/piney hops in the flavor. Floral, citrusy hops in the aroma. Very hop forward kind of beer. The hops chosen really go well with the malt bill here. Really smooth, really brought together super well. If itís on tap and you are visiting, get it.
