3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A different IPA. Aroma was OK. Slightly lemony with hints of grains. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger off white head and plenty of rising bubbles. Taste was very dry and bitter. Light pilsner malt and strong biting hops attacking the top of the mouth. A little hot with good carbonation. No rye detectable in this beer, but good for what it is. Slightly thin mouth feel.

Lots going on with this one. Good carbonation with a light amber color. Bready-spice aromas. Flavor is complex, almost peppery. Smoothness. Good malty balance. Light citrus finish. Not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber, mostly clear, with a pillow of cream colored head. Thereís a good bit of lacing in there. Aroma, a health dose of pine and citrus, with caramel malt and rye. The rye comes out more in the taste. Mild malt profile, and a solid bitterness, but a bit lacking in depth. Medium bodied, quite dry, and smoothly carbonated, with a long bitter finish. I donít think the taste compliments the aroma very well, but itís a pretty good beer. Especially compared to most Harpoon brews that Iíve tried.

660 ml bottle purchased at a liquor store in Windsor, Vermont, on July 28, 2011. Honey blonde hazy, small head. Aroma of rye very dominant, with notes of raw barley, slightly hoppy. Taste of dry rye, slightly hoppy with hints of herbs and citrus, aftertaste of bitter cereal. A intense and enjoyable cereal IPA!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught: This one poured a darker golden color with a bit of an amber hue. There was a good sized off-white head on it, that left a good deal of lacing. Grapefruit nose with a bit of pine. Some rye also. The taste is good. This one is fairly bitter, with grapefruit and pine hop tastes most prevalent. Some rye taste coming through also. Not a bad beer!
