574deadzone (884) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a fairly clear burnt sienna with a thin khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves some orange, grapefruit, peach apricot, spicy rye bread dough, some underlying bubblegum, some herbal and floral stuff. Quite sweet, pretty bitter, a bit tart. Heavier, creamy, a bit syrupy, somewhat tannic, softer carb, with a lengthy juicy yet dry finish. Found this really fresh (about a month old), and it’s really nice. Pretty well balanced with lots of cool rye IPA character.

RumRunner101 (671) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Murky copper pour. Aroma is sherry sweetness, fruit, citrus. Full bodied. Sweet malt up front, more of that sherry, fruit flavour. Followed by big citrus and pine bitterness. Lingers with a slight sweet note. Alcohol well hidden. Pushing barley wine territory. Good beer.

Pours a light amber. Aroma is strong with heavy malt and some hops. A complex beer with heavy malt, citrus hops and spices. A strong bitter hop aftertaste.

matty (151) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark amber color with an off-white head that settles to a film. Aroma is a balance of sticky sweet malt and earthy hops. Full bodied with a good balance of the malt and hops. The hops are really present in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Handypaul (161) - - NOV 24, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a creamy light brown lasting head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is fresh and clean, grass. Taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter-good balance. Medium body, creamy texture, very well balanced with caramel malts and light citrusy hops, average carbonation and a light bitter finish. No hint of alcohol. Excellent!

HKdIPA (111) - HONG KONG - NOV 23, 2013
Transparent copper pour with thin head. Hoppy bready slightly boozy aroma. Taste starts with deep bitter hops (less of the citrus/floral flavor), then malty bread flavor (from the rye?), then dry boozy finish. Not bad - one of the best beers tried from the usually-disappointing brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CacheManyHose (99) - HONG KONG - NOV 23, 2013
Clear red-orange with off-white head and decent lacing. Smells strongly of rye with some malty breadiness. Tastes bitter but without many other hop characteristics, especially for a DIPA. More malty than expected, lots of rye and grassy flavour even though I wish it had more of a hop backbone. Body is frothy and starts oily but finishes dry and very grainy and sweet. Probably the best He'brew beer I've tried.

Lagerboy (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2013
Big Beer Tasting Night at The Brownstone, Round One : 12 fl. oz. bottle. Clear deep orange copper, lasting smaller tan head. Pungent spicy malt aroma. Taste is a bittersweet symphony of rich malts and a plethora of hop flavors, sweet caramel, spicy rye, some citrus, resinous pine, dark fruit, earthy herbal and floral. Soft carbonation, full bodied, aggressively hopped. Potent and complex makes it DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys) Perfectly paired with beer braised short ribs and saurkraut.
