3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Source: 12 oz can.
Aroma: nice hop front aroma. Followed quickly with a nice biscuit malt presence.
Color: great pale ale color. Quite a bit of haze.
Taste: malt backbone is in charge. Characteristic rye flavor, well balanced with the hops. Neither the hops or malt override each. They actually take turns showing up on the palate. The rye seems to be the final note on my palate.
Overall:( A-) A great effort in a style of beer I really enjoy, by a brewery that I feel does a great job with most of their beers. If you like rye, you'll like this beer.

Can from a local swap, thanks Jeff! This is quite nice. Intense aroma, on the dank, grassy end of the spectrum. Very bitter, grainy, like rye bread.

Tap at mellow mushroom. Nose is all hop. Thin Body and thin off white lingering head. Very dry overall with some floral notes in there. Decent but not amazing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours fairly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate caramel/rye malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness and rye spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate rye/caramel malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice rye IPA! All around great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate caramel/rye malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear copper orange color with a large white head. A nice fruity orange tea nose. Rich spicy rye, oranges, some lemon zest, very smooth, tea-like, a bit of resin. Very good beer. A bit light, but that’s what it’s meant to be.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Quite perfumy out of the can. Looks like a darker hefe. First taste is a big dull blast of IPA naughtiness. Yes, terribly on style for a rye IPA. Long bitter rude medicinal hop finish, wew. Nasty Nellie. If yer a lager lover, better stay away from this stuff.
