Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
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.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light golden amber with a whitish head. Fruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is lighter stone fruit or maybe citrus over very mild malt. Mild hop burn. Noticeable rye. Hop and rye spice build with time. Finishes dry and decently bitter. Excellent.

brokensail (10596) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 28, 2013
On tap @ Pour House Paso Robles. Hazy amber/orange pour with a white head. Sweet orange, caramel, and brown sugar on the nose. A touch of apricot and herbal, pine notes, too. Maybe a bit of vanilla. Flavor is sweet sugar and a touch of bitterness. Lots of orange peel, some herbs, pine, and caramel. A bit of apricot and vanilla. Mild oxidation and toasted bread. Okay.

On tap at Parrys Pizza poured a clear golden amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, lemon zest and light earthiness with a crisp dry lingering lemon finish.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Very spicy, dank resiny hoppy, mild pineapple, piney aroma. Spicy herbal, piney hoppy, light fruity, a bit chewy, spicy rye refreshing flavor. Cool beans.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2013
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.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Perfume and floral aroma. Citrus and floral flavor. Medium bodied. OK bitterness. Floral and citrus notes linger with light earthiness.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle shared by Lisa from New Belgium at Capitol Beer. Pours dark blonde with a modest beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish. Nicely hopped.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
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.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, fiery, hazy, small to moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Bright shrubby nose, soft floral and citrus notes.   Seems a bit green on the tongue, not biting, but a little rough.   Citrus notes, but bright shrubby berry notes as well.   A touch of fragrant or soapy floral notes too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Wished it were a bit smoother.   Has a nice nose, but comes across as a little green.   Certainly hoppy, and also a bit dry, but needs to be a touch smoother... perhaps sweeter?   Feels a little green.
