3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 8/29/11: Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with fine white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy. Flavor is piney, resinous hops, with a mild rye finish. Flavor and aroma seem somewhat mild and subdued. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. Not much rye going on this time, a mellow IPA.
6/11/13: Tap at Mtn Sun. Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with white head. Decent retention and some rings of lacing. Aroma is strong rye, hoppy, bitter, and indeed quite resinous. Flavor is hoppy, bitter, resinous, piney, with a mildly skunky hop finish. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and oily finish. A tasty rye beer, not my favorite of the grains for beer, but this one is well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours amber gold with white head. Aroma is earthy, pungenty grapefruit, Flavors really pungent, grungy grapefruit, slightly woody, earthy malt, sorta plasticy stale grain malt character I tend to get in their beers. Lots of simcoe in this but a pretty poor malt base leaves it flat. Sharp Dry finish. Seemingly over attenuated (again).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Vine Street Pub. Looked sort of light orange but it was dark since I was in the annex. Smells citrusy, earthy, cool. Taste is nice and hoppy, more citrus, juicy. This was not quite as good as vagabond IPA but still good enough that I ordered another one.
Serving type: on-tap

Sampled on site in October 2011. Pours deep brown with a goodsize head on it. Has a really hoppy finish. Enjoyed the creativity of the Rye, which is underutilized in my opinion. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at Vine St is hazy orange with white head, aroma brought notes of big pine, grass, some citrus and spicy rye notes, touch of caramel and biscuit in there as well. Taste is very pine and spice forward but balanced well by sweet caramel and some fruity orange and grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter. Nicely done.

Crushed at the Pearl St. location. Red-Orange pour with a sticky lacing. Wonderful nose of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, and oranges with a hint of rye. Flavor is citrus, smooth rye and bitter hops. Top-notch.
