Ruby amber body w/ a pretty tan head, good lace and nice head retention. Rye, grain & caramel malty aromas. Malt forward front end. A melange of hops finish dry, clean and bitter. A very well-balanced brew that is equal parts malt and hops.

The body had a beautiful deep reddish amber color with just a slight chill haze. On top sits a nice creamy light tan head that fades slowly down to ring of bubbles. It makes for some slick lacing on the glass. Its aroma has a big robust, bready/ roasted grain malt presence with plenty of strong resin hop notes and a noticeable sweet alcohol as well. The flavor has a very solid malty body up front. It brings sweet and roasted grain, bready and rye notes as well as some sweet alcohol. Hops flavor starts to add balance in the middle before tacking over in the end. The hops add some piney and resiny notes to the sweet warming alcohol and rye notes in the slow lingering finish. It has a full body with a thick, rounded chewy texture that hangs onto the palate.

Look: pours a light amber. Very clear. Thick off white head. Leaves lacing around edge. Smell: citrus fruit. Lemons, pine apple. Slight spiciness to it. Oranges. Pine trees. Grass Taste: rye on the back end. Leaves a very bitter taste. Pepper. Oranges. Feel: thick mouth feel that leaves a film on your teeth. Lightly carbonated. Overall: very hop forward. But the rye makes it interesting.

This beer has an aroma of hops that are quite herbal; as I sip, I taste a small level of licorice (but not overpowering). The taste has a pleasant, unexpected sweetness, and the palate is strong bodied. An excellent beer; I’ll be keeping an eye out for this again!

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2014
From bottle. Very nice floral/fruity hop aroma. Sweet malt notes, pleasant aromatics. Coppery amber clear with off-white foamy lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Sweet malt with light warming to start. Big hop flavor throughout with bitter finish. Sweet malty and bitter hop after. Good IIPA.

Aroma is sweet malt and fruity hops. I am even getting some melon in the aroma. I’m not sensing any of the rye from the description. 2-part aroma - sweet then hoppy, but overall a very pleasant scent. Great amber color with minimal amount of white foam that leaves much lacing on the glass. Looks refreshing, not imposing like 10% ABV may indicate. Hops are present all throughout the taste, but not overwhelming - just right. A little sweetness at first that gives way to mild hops. The aftertaste is not crazy powerful like in some DIPA’s, but does contain some rye. Actually, it is refreshing. I could drink this straight out of the bottle. Good palate for the style. I don’t know if I would buy this again, but it is interesting and worth a try. I wish I could have found it is a 22 oz. so I wouldn’t have to commit to a whole 4-pack.

AWISLguy (1420) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. No bottle date. Pours a brownish orange with a bit of an off-white head. Some streaks of lace. Aroma has heavy malts and grains, pine and citrus, and some earthiness. Taste is of sweet biscuity malts, some sprucy pine, loads of rye, caramel and lots of fruits, mostly sweet, but also stone. With alcohol. Very resiny and heavily layered. Medium to full bodied and quite heavy, and quite dry. Finishes dry and sweet, with some bitterness. Too much vermouth for me?? My idea of a solid DIPA is not dumping double plus of everything. That appears to be what they did. Nothing subtle here, but nothing shows through either. if there was a 13.5 (or 13.3), this one would get it.

Glowing caramel color. Malty sweet smells. Bitter sweet rye comes through on a flavor that lasts. Bitter finish.
