4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 it’s on tap and you are visiting, get it.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours dark and very ruddy. Aroma of malt and rye. Med body. Flavor is "Amber mall" and rye. Maybe some citrus hop. Malty, but rye saves the beer.

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.
