3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
32 oz. growler. Clear pale orange. A few bubbles. Citrus hop aroma. Interesting sugar smell. I guess that’s the rice. Tastes much hoppier. Bright citrus. Sugar flavor is interesting here too. Light sweetness. Almost no bitterness. Low carbonation. Stupid plastic growler caps. Light body. I get that the rice makes it lighter and, apparently, taste less alcoholic. It’s pretty dramatic. Unique flavor from the rice, though.

Excited to try this. Arrived today in a box from Umich03jm. Thanks, Jason! Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Taste is dry with pine and grapefruit. This has a nice balance and is very drinkable for a 9% IPA.

32 oz. Growler shared by Willrunforbeer, dude, pimping. Lightly hazy gold color with thin bubbles of head in the chalice. Aroma is tropical fruit, mild pine and yeast.
Flavor has juicy grapefruit, pine though the center, mild notes of alcohol in the finish but not distracting. I can’t pickup the rice but the fruit and pine are pretty nice. Balance of malt and hop profile really gives this a pretty high drinkability. And to the Brewers credit, it doesn’t come off to sweet which is easy to do with a huge grain bill. Very nicely worked!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very piny and herbal. Thick and slightly sweet with a little extra I just can’t place. Ok overall, but not a standout in style.

Aroma is sweet and piny, dank, tropical fruit. Appearance is golden amber, white head. Taste is wonderful tropical fruit, bitter pine, somewhat light. Mouthfeel is thin, carbonation is off but good. Overall, I like.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours bright yellow thick and beautiful with a sunset hue. Aroma brings that amazing skunky armpit hop that I love, not overbearing! Flavor is similar with sharp skunky armpit hops that I love on a quenching balanced carbonated body. Delicious!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear bright golden color, minimal white lacing. Aroma is mostly malt of an unfamiliar origin, then pine and herbs. Very bitter with a strong grain finish. Oily, mildly carbed, and astringent. Finish is long and unpleasantly bitter.

Brought in by a coworker to bottle share Friday. Not bad but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
