3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes gradually. Rings of lacing. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and malt notes. Medium to full body with flavors of piney hops, grapefruit, pear and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering resiny hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - slight hop smell. Little pine.
Mouthfeel - smooth. Just about right. Lingering butter aftertaste.
Color - orange and pretty clear. Slight haze.
Taste - clearly rye but it's missing something. I think that wooky ack is better but that's because the hops and malt mixes well. This is just rye.
Overall - just okay. Better than others but falls short on the rye aspect. Probably wouldn't buy again because it's nothing special. But would drink if it's all there is.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tropical fruit, pine, and citrus comprise the nose. A hazy orange-ish amber pour with frothy off-white head and massive amounts of lacing. Quit beautiful in the glass. The pallet is well balanced, in that, even though the hops are dominate, there is a nice proportionate malt flavor present. Tangerine, grapefruit, pine notes, and malt flavors are noted. Spice from the rye creeps in on the finish and aftertaste. Nice. Medium body and medium carbonation. Oveall, a very tasty, drinkable, and well crafted DIPA. Well done y’all!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy gold on tap with thin lacy head that leaves a nice ring of lacing. Aroma of fruity sweetness, slight floral grassy notes. Taste is super floral and bitter, odd watermelon jolly rancher finish. Meh, not for me.

For a rye ipa it fails. Bitter not balanced decent mouthfeel. Decent head. But very similar to the other brews they have. Disappointing for the abv.

Bottle from Total Wine Stuart. Pours orange with a quarter inch of white foam. Has a bit of pine on the nose. Kind of sweet on the tongue which I guess is the rye. Doesn’t have much bitterness unfortunately. Hides the alcohol well but is not very interesting.
