Hazy as a mash. Sweet imperial aroma. Grainy and hoppy. Fruity taste, some strawberries also and florals. Full bodied but smooth and well ballanced. Huge kick of bitterness in aftertaste. Heavy.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Beer Stop - bottle - split with Aurelius, Murky, medium golden pour, light, soft white head. Light grainy notes, a touch of spearmint in the aroma. Solid flavor with some peachy fruitiness, a bit of cake mix sweetness, some rye mintiness. Thickish mouthfeel. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lemony, honey malt aroma with very light vinegar. Standard 12 oz longneck. Boring label. Murky peachy tan. Not much head. Kumquat peel and cereal flavor. Unentertaining, not worth the premium. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

Foggy orange with a huge head. Aroma is fresh hops with strong sweet malts. Taste is smooth hoppy bitterness, some sweet bubblegum and soapiness, sweet malts. Finishes bitter. Good ipa, missing the rye part but I think it's just me.

Top Class IPA, went down a treat with pizza. Everything you would want from a Rye IPA, super hoppy but a nice malt backbone with a hint of rye spiciness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Draft House, Tower Bridge, London at 8.6% ABV. Clouded amber with white head. There is an initial light toffee’d note to this, fortunately not overly so and it is soon enveloped by a smooth general fruitiness. The hops are there, I liked to think of Norwegian Spruce, slightly resinous. On the whole it is easy on the palate and very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green on 17 Oct. Poured a hazy, deep golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of butterscotch, rye and violets. Toffee sweetness in the flavour, with some hay and flowery notes. Finish had some light lingering hop bitterness, biscuity malt and brown sugar. Seemed to have lost its hoppy edge somewhat.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich and yielding. Smells weakly of a pleasant graininess with hints of newly harvested hay and some fruit. The taste is hoppy with an accent of liquorice, hints of broccoli which stay until far out in the aftertaste. Feels healthy, as it gives the impression of a powerful vegetable.
With the sediments at the bottom of the bottle, the taste gets more complex - some milder malt notes, and a sharper hoppiness.
