3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From backlog. Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a small head that quickly fades. Aroma is spicy and floral with a hint of citrus. Taste is smooth with lots of spicy , floral, and citrus hops. Some pine too. Psicy rye bread finish. Alittle dry but pretty refreshing. Solid rye ipa.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle with no mention that it was a 100 barrel series on the label. Best buy date was a couple of months before I drank this even though I just purchased it from the store a few days ago. Not sure it had anything to do with the past best by date but I was a little disappointed with this one. Pretty average IPA with the rye flavor masking most of the other flavors. It’s just OK.

Aroma is floral and malty. taste is floral, grapefruit, pine and some bitter citrus. Malty backbone is nice with the floral taste. Spicey rye notes. Nice mouthfeel. Well done ipa.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great for lovers of a good, bitter IPA. Pours hazy gold with a thin head. Beautiful fruity flowery aroma, nice bitter taste on the front and a solid aftertaste. Not too complex but a solid IPA with a tasty rye flavor

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one inch frothy beige head. The nose is a mix of caramel and light rye with just a little spicy and floral hops. The flavor is a little too heavy on the caramel, largely dulling the spiciness from the rye and the floral hops. Pretty muddled on the overall, too much sweetness in here. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not up my alley all that much.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour copper with tan head. Strong citrus aromas. Pleasant hop bitterness with strong balanced rye malt flavor. Grassy/citrus hop finish, but the rye malt really shines in this IPA.
