3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery in Truckee. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is slight rye spiciness, dank hops, pine resin. Interesting take on a rye IPA, but everything is a little to far on the subtle side.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 isn’t overpowering but is a nice addition. Pretty tasty Rye IPA.

On tap at Capone’s. 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.
