3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml. pours clear amber-golden with a humongous sponge of foam. Nose is at first infection but later notes of resin, spicy flower pollen, honey and toast. Tastes of early infection with wild yeast-mottled berry and then some notes of honey, resin, mint and toast. Near-medium body has smooth carbonation and a nice balance.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a medium, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is buttery diacetyl, fruity esters (apple, pear), and light hops (earthy, spicy, citrus). Flavor is slick buttery popcorn diacetyl with honey malt and a sweet finish. The hops cannot cut the diacetyl. Light body and medium carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
22 oz bottle. Pours clear copper red with a small creamy off white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet sugary caramel malt and perfumey hops with a little butterscotch.
The flavor is lots of butterscotch diacetyl and lots of bitter minty hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, not a very good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear rusty amber with a foamy off white head. Nice earthy floral hop aroma with a bit of rye toast and grapefruit zestiness, and a fair dose of pine. Balanced flavor with rye, toast, bitter floral resins, a little kiss of grapefruit, and a earthy spicy rye finish. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The 22oz bomber picked up at K & B Wine Cellars pours with a crystal clear copper body that has thin gold hues and supports a tall, almost billowy, light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetness, pineapple, a bit of orange gummy bear and then a light bitter lime sort of sensation. The taste begins with almost bright notes of malt sweetened yet plenty bitter lemon and lime moving quickly into grapefruit bitterness and a grapefruit pith and lime peel mix. To midway it gets muddled in sweet malts, juicy hops and a resiny hop edge that lingers into the after taste. Decent.

[ Keg ][ 3oz ][ Helms ][ $1.25-$2 ][ Taster ][ 10.26.14 ]
>> Clear gold pour. No foam, flat. Nose is cereal and sugar, moving to chlorine. Taste is pure lye and soap. Ew, like eating a bar of orange Dial soap. Eating soap bar, orange dial bar soap. Worst of the flight and worst of a 50 tick brewery hopping day.

Rye IPA. 6.6 ABV. Whole cone dry hopped. Bomber from Kings Liquor in Anaheim. Pours orange amber with a slight white head. Rye in the nose. Med + body. Lots of spice and citrus hop for flavor. This seems to be about as rye as it gets. Exceptionally packed with flavor.
