Very good. Aroma is a little hard to figure out; there’s a slight soapiness. Flavor is interesting and enjoyable; rye tempers the hops nicely, with a light spice or herbal undertone and a kick of prickliness and hops at the end. (Total Wine beer tasting class 1/13.)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - Abercorn - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky dark orange with an overabundant foamy white head - some quality problems it seems. Light spruce notes in the aroma, a touch of rye-like mint. Flavor s decent with some light citrus bitterness, a touch or rye-like mintiness, just a touch of white grapes. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it, but the annoying pour knocks it down a point.

On tap at The Underground, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of citrus, with secondary notes of rye. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, loads of pine, and moderate rye. The rye isn’t overdone, with a very medium body. Very piney and delicious IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, golden pour with a slight cloudiness to it, minimal head about a fingers worth. Aroma, nice hop presence but not overpowering, some mild citrus notes a bit of pine and some sweet malt. Taste, bitter up front, smooth and not as dry as I was expecting, light grains and a nice malty sweet finish. Really like this, very well balanced, not really anything that overpowers, well done!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Bottled 7/23/13. Pours a medium well retained off white head, with extensive Belgian lacing, over a slightly hazy, light fold (SRM 4) body....nose is light pine, resin, floral honey, hints of cereal....taste is moderately sweet, with light cocoa hints, light rye spice, stronger resin, pine, citrus hints, finishing with a moderate bitterness.....mouth feel, medium body, slight acid, carbonation adds light spritz.. This is a lighter IPA, with the rye not overly present, bitterness constrained, but all in all well balanced. It might be that this bottle is a bit too old. BJCP 8/3/14/4/6

Very nice citrus aroma that mixes with some nice malt. Alcohol is a little too prominent in this one though, and takes away from overall taste. Finishes with medium bitterness. Pours clear orange without much head or lacing. On cask at Churckkey.
