3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle- Pours hazy pale golden with a two finger head that slowly reduces. Aroma is spicy hops, piney and sweet sticky malt. The taste is PCNW hops, piney and citrusy, resinous and oily, there is a balanced malt there, but it is light enough that this is all about the hops. The body is medium and coats the mouth, high carbonation. Nice IPA, I donít really get why you have to take a "Trip" just to make a straight up IPA like this one!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at New Belgium. Was labeled under the Lips of Faith on tap as "Trip 17-Rye IPA." Pours a bright, clear reddish amber with a small off-white head that leaves streaks and spots of lace. Notes of rye, herbs, pepper, citrus, and some subtle tartness, too. Some caramel malt to balance. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, smooth mouthfeel that ends dry, with a little spicy hop kick. Nice.
