3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber and hazy, bubbly head. Aroma is big chewy....rye, crystal, stale hop...unlike Elysian to give me stale hops. Fruity character with a slight papaya accent. Lots of chewy...again this seems more crystal than rye.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours up with a crystal clear gold body that supports a tall dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up soft floral hop notes, cantaloupe, bits of citrus and then a touch of mango. The taste has a pleasing degree of grapefruit, tangelo and mango like fruity hoppiness where bitter hops run out ahead in the front of the flavor. To midway it gets a little spicy just as a light white wine fruitiness is noticed. Nice IPA.

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.
