3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy orange / brown brew with this off white head. Mild aroma of citrus, floral, rye. Taste is mildly sweet at the very start with a sour / bitter finish. SOme resin, some hints of the rye, a little spice. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Not a standout but a fully competent and enjoyable IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a cloudy copper with a large white head. Aroma is some spicy rye and not much else including hops. Flavor is a heavy malt with a little rye malt but along with the aroma there is very little hop presence. KInda a heavy malt bomb and where are the hops?

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh. A very average beer in the IPA on Tour series. Aroma was very perfumey. Perfume with a hint of ginger. Pour was a nice light amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was very light and weak. Rye is the predominant flavor with just hints of malt and only a hint of hops. Sweet sticky and spicy finish. Decent carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy chestnut color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish and a bit spicy with gritty floral hops. The flavor was dry, perfumey, floral and herbal and was a bit rough. Long dry herbal and perfumey hop finish. Medium body. Eh.
