3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle and served in nonic pint glass: Pours a mostly clean golden hue with a nice frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has juicy hop esters of grapefruit and melon along with some pine. The rye is not overpowering on the nose, some caramel and bready notes. The taste is more akin to that of a standard IPA, moderately bitter and fruity with a touch of resiny character. The rye is more noticed towards the finish with a dry spicy tone. Fair amount of malt balance as well. The mouth feel is sprite but not overly aggressive, metallic finish. Overall, a solid brew and worth trying again.

Bottle - Pours a clear golden with a creamy head. Citrus aromas of peach and pineapple, nice. Aromas continue in the taste followed by rye notes, bitterness, and a dry finish. Fairly complex, interesting and enjoyable.

Pours the usual IPA medium brown with a white head. The nose is rye spice. The taste is accentuated by the rye - spicy with a backbone of malt.

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.

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
