Bottle from Heinens. Gold with small head and some lace. Fruity hop aroma of citrus rind tangerine and a hint of herbs. Medium sweet honey mango fruitiness with assertive lingering herbal orange rind hop bitterness and mild lingering sweetness. Medium body. Very good.

Delicious. Just the right amount of Rye. Not too bitter. Would do it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perhaps the most true to the rye style as I’ve tasted, with loads upon loads of rye malt and grapefruit initially on the palate, leading into a blast of floral hops that show a prickly edge, and finishing with more...rye. Alcohol is present but covered well. Smooth, lacking the medicinal finish that plagues their Commodore Perry IPA, and a bit less aggressive then Sierra Nevada’s rugged Ruthless offering. A beer for spring.

Golden-amber, creamy white head, and great lacing. Floral, caramel, lemon, sweet fruit and mild biscuit aroma. Full bodied, candy-caramel sweet, floral hop notes, and mild lemon-grapefruit. Decent balance, medium, lemon- bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bomber into snifter a light orange with a thin white head.
Aroma is citrus some pine.
Flavor is sweet resin somewhat malty yet a dry finish. All over the board with this brew but not in a bad way. Moderate carbonation. A solid GL seasonal especially if you are it ryes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle poured in a snifter glass. Given the expiration date that’s 3 months from now, my guess is that it was bottled within the last month and that would explain how fresh it smells and tastes. The aroma was big and sweet - melon, pineapple and tangerine. It had an orange appearance and a moderate amount of foam with moderate carbonation. The flavor was similar to the aroma but a little scaled back...sweet tropical fruit and fresh hops. Very nice stuff! I didn’t pick up on the rye aspects much but I still enjoyed it as a straight forward ipa. Medium bodied and refreshing. Overall very tasty and a great value at under $2/bottle.
