Bottle. Golden with a medium head. Hops and bitterness merge together creating a pleasant easy to drink flavour not as overwhelming as I expected. If anything its a bit too bitter for my palate but still enjoyed trying it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BBE: 2.2.16. Well-chilled. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a generous, pillowy, off-white head. Classic high intensity grapefruit, orange squash and oats with some cat litter. Noticed the strong ginger when tasted, lending a moderate biscuity sweetness. The high-medium bitterness doesn’t pack quite as big a punch as expected. The high abv is pretty well disguised. Body is medium to medium-full, with a coarse texture. Carbonation is medium-high and the finish bitter and long. Overall this is a fairly run-of-the-mill expression of a style that should give you a slap in the face.

Very nice Rye IPA. The slight sweetness of the rye blends well with this powerfully hopped beer. Not really extreme, but actually quite balanced.
