Pours a deep ruby, quickly dissipating head, subtle aroma. Shocked this is 9%, very smooth rye IIPA. Awful packaging/design, but the contents are top notch. Glad I have several more.

12oz bottle. Hazy, dark amber. Head is white towards latte, kinda small, but good retention. Nose is caramel, resin, spice. Nice balance on the palate. Getting some sweetness and spices, then it fades into a grapefruity bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A hazy, amber colored beer topped by a small, dense, light beige colored head. The aroma has some caramel and spicy notes, with a good dash of piney and resiny hops. Grapefruit peel. It’s full bodied and lightly warming on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Resins, grapefruity, spicy maltyness and some caramel in the flavor, lasting for a good while, with a fine bitterness. Quite nice this one, but I’m sure it’d be better when fresh. 141018

The first smell is not very fresh. Aged bottle? Unable to check, because there is no date on the bottle or the cap.
Aroma: caramel, dried figs and prunes, pine, hops.
Taste: sweet, dried fruits and tart, piney. Agressively sharp. Very bitter.

Poured a deep garnet with a big fluffy head with very nice lacing. Soft nose and in the mouth it is very well balanced. Could have used just a tad more spice from the rye.
