3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single from Kalamazoo Michigan's drake party center. Very viscous looking deep orange with an inch or two of beige-ish orange head on top. Lots of small bubbles rising from the glass bottom. Super citrus hop aroma, exquisite. Very light/thin mouthfeel, average carbonation and dry, bittering finish. Taste is slightly watery, not a huge complaint. Juicy pine hops and orange juicy flavor. Bitter, sour, somewhat muted malt too. Unfortunately does not have distinct rye quality. Decent IPA, was hoping for more rye.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a deep orange with a decent off white head. The nose has a touch of bread and spice with a good dose of citrus and floral hoppiness. The flavor starts and finishes with those citrus hops but the rye adds a welcome bit of spice and the malt adds a toasty component. Well balanced and a pleasure to drink. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I could definitely go for a few of these.

Pours a nice orange tone with a good sized 2 finger head that actually sticks around. Smell is very bready with citrus undertones and a little bit of mango... Fresh cut grass is there as well. Taste is again with mango citrus and sourdough bread. It has a big body and the bitterness sticks around after each sip. Solid IPA.

Draft. Poured a hazy golden color, with a medium sized white head. Aroma was spice, citrus, straw. Flavor was a nice spicy character, with plenty of hops, and some bready notes. Enjoyed this one. Friends did not - well, more for me to drink then!

Big hunt DC- clear amber pour, little head more bubbly than foamy. Nice fresh aroma, floral and fruity. First sip bitter hoppy. Some aftertaste sticks around. Not very complex.

330ml bottle Thanks Ryan! Golden cloudy pour with one finger of head. Smell has lots of Lemmon and other citrus notes. Wow this one packs a punch, very hoppy a hit of Lemmon and a really bitter aftertaste.

12 oz bottle. Pours orange golden with a small particle haziness and a white head. Citrus herbal hoppy aromas, pale toasty malt. Grapefruit, herbal, grassy hops with toasty rye. Itís solid, but not that exciting to me.

Pour is a slightly hazy golden orange with a bubbly off white head. Lots of rye spice on the nose, good bit of malt, a touch of dark fruit, some nice floral hoppiness and a bit of citrusy bitterness. Very much a malt forward and spicy ipa on the taste, thereís a good bit of lemon and grapefruit bitterness, kind of a grassy taste too, and a bit of pine. A lot maltier than most IPAís, still quite tasty.
