3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Hazy orange pour, with a medium, beige head. The aroma is heavy resin and floral hops, with some butterscotch and wet hay. The flavor is very bitter, with little to no malt backbone. Heavy body, sticky, and very astringent. Low carbonation. Overall, this is a strong and hoppy, but fairly unpleasant beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium foamy off-white head that slowly diminishes with 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. I found this in AJ’s marked down area. Good deal!

I am a DIPA purest, but do not generally favor
rye styles. This beer, however, has become a go
to double. I only hope it is not a seasonal.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Light amber colored brew with a light amount of haze to it. About an inch of white foamy head on top. Potent hop aroma features orange and some pine. Hops overpower the rye malt in the flavor. Sweet orange zest, bread and mild alcohol also make an appearance. Long and bitter finish borders on astringent. A little heavy, but still pretty tasty.

12 oz. bottle. Hazy copper pour with a medium white head that quickly fades to a thin white rim around the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, lemon, mild rye notes. Some citrus and tangerine peel. Taste is mildly sweet with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Finishes hoppy. Overall, decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a cloudy deep golden/light brown with an orange hint and a thick white foam cap. Aroma is very citrus forward, more oranange, mango, and tangerine. Taste is a spicy bready malt, a hint of tea leaves, grass, tangerine, and orange. I get a hint of brett, which is odd for the style. Mouthfeel is fairly light with high carbonation for the style. Finishes with a lingering grassy bitterness. Overall, not the most balanced IIPA but has an interesting hop flavor compared to other versions
