3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into pint glass. Hazy red copper with thin but lasting offwhite head. Aroma is wonderful with sweet florals mixed with pine, honey, and grapefruit. Flavors follow with similar, albeit reduced potency. There's an interesting note at the end that I can't place. Perhaps it's the rye. Palate is well balanced and mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap poured into a shaker-like glass. The aroma is a roasty caramel with grapefruit citrus, bread crust, light biscuit and graham, and a touch of pepper. The beer is a clear caramel red color with a light brown head, a light web lace, a thin ring and a thin tail of a surface. Itís highly bitter with a medium sweetness. The waxy texture has a medium full body with an active, fuzzy carbonation.The finish is toast, caramel, some citrus, and a touch of resin - the rye isnít really that prevalent. The resin sticks around in the aftertaste with some pepper traces, but itís mostly clean.

A bit too hoppy but good! But I got used to the taste as I drank it down. Beautiful color.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of sweet fruit and citrus. A dark reddish amber pour with a non- lasting tan head and minimal lacing. The taste a nice combination of hop bitterness and citrus freshness with hint of spice in the finish. Medium body and medium crisp carbonation. Overall, a bitter citrusy IPA.

From growler. Deep cherry red with off white head. Piney spicey aroma. Great rye kick that showcases the spicy hops well. One of my fav styles and this is good. With a bit of carmel and hops on the finish.

Drought. Copper red with small beige spongy head, hoppy aroma, sweetish hoppy taste with a hint of rye, medium finish, very well balanced hoppiness with slightly bitter aftertaste. Very good brew.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber with nice off white head. You pick up rye in the nose. Taste is rye spiciness as well as some caramel.

Bottle. Pours an opaque red-copper color with a thin tan head. Aroma is citrus and malts. Moderate carbonation and body with a great crisp finish. Sweet taste of malts up front followed by a nice bitter grapefruit hop flavor. This is a really well balanced brew. One of the best rye IPAs Iíve had and one of my favorite beers overall.
