3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong hit of rye in this. I remember a couple years ago when I first ran into rye IPAs. This would have been a great addition to that weekend.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at acadia in tulip with commonmac. Light plum Color with 1 finger white head and good lacing. Appealing alcohol hop aroma. Grainy, malty, and more flat than expected. Heavy grain and dark bread elements. Doesn’t have the pop I hoped. The finish leaves something to be desired. A bit disappointed.

5th January 2015
Can. Hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is crispy and a bit dry. The thin malts are unsurprisingly a little spicy and also bring a touch of cream. Mild orange hops, little pine. Light dry finish. Lacks the Oskar Blues wow factor, but it’s a perfectly serviceable beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared with Lorna. It pours clear orange-amber with a decent white heads and some floaters. The nose is spicy, rich brown bread, earth, light toast, gingerbread, dull caramel and wood. The taste is bitter, toasty, rich spice, brown bread, resin, pine, varnish, earth, ginger, faint caramel and some alcohol warmth. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good deal of gingerbread character. Rather nice balance of malt, bitterness and spice.

473ml can from Beermerchants
Pours dark copper orange with a thick white head. Aroma of malts, hints of rye, grass, sweetish toffee and caramel. Taste is sweet, grainy and crisp with hints of toffee, rye, caramel and bready notes. Finish is grainy, malty and sweetish with notes of spices, rye and caramel. A bit unbalanced, feels too sweet and grainy but somehow I still like this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky rustic copper with a thin fizzy white head. Lovely nose full of toffee and some earthy spiciness. The flavor was a tad too spicy and earthy and peppery with a full breadth tone and calming toffee undercurrents. It’s fine, but a bit brash.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
There’s a terrible dominant similarity among rye IPAs and this one us no different. Deep hazy orange red and a super glossy rocky head lesds to some spruce bitterness which isn’t overly complex or sustained in the finish.

Can from Cornelius. Hazy amber body with fairly sizeable yeast flecks floating around. Tight white head. No visible carbonation. Aroma of ginger biscuit, burnt sugar, pine and a hint of soy sauce. Flavour of grass, caramel, rye bread and spruce. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Easy drinking for the ABV.
