2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy copper pour with pillowtop offwhite head. Smells faintly clean and metallic. Flavor is better, with a good decent old hop character. Lightly spicy, more bitter than anything, surprisingly, donít pick up all that much rye. A little thin and watery on the palate. Didnít really think much of this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lively, deep cheddar orange with a nose of hay, grapefruit, dewy spring grass, and a hint of sweet roll. Flavor is a tangy, melon-like grapefruit with a straw bread finish. Tingly and coating on the tongue. Tasty.

Looks like generic beer, tastes much better. Strong example of well balances IPA....good bitter profile from nose through the end of the palace, rye seems to be a good backbone as I love most Rye-país. Light and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light pour, almost the color of the label. Grainy aroma and hop profile. Almost like a funky grassy noble hop like flavor with some sweet grain rye flavors. A bit overly sweet and bordering on cloying. There wasnít a lot of hop bitterness, but it wasnít absent either. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, good head. Pineapple hop aroma. Taste is pine hops and a slight orange citrus taste to it - a bit harsh towards the end. Finish is bitter and light.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright but cloudy (especially after the last pour from the bottle) appearance with a large, off white head and very good lacing. Rye is apparent right away in the aroma where it pairs with spicy, herbal hops. There is balance in the taste as well, with the grainy spicyness of the rye and an evolving, bitter hop profile. Earthy, medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

bottle-pours slightly hazy orange with a foamy soapy white head. nose is mostly floral citric and some tropical notes-lite orange peal. flavors are sweet citrus lite wood lite diacytl nad floral notes. not bad but nothing great dont know how good this bee would be fresh from the brewery. It sux that TX gets these beers not very fresh unless they are released that way. I dunno. Regardless, an average IPA here.
