4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a frothy lasting white head, decent lacing. Powerful hop aroma, floral and citrus nots. Taste: quite hoppy, moderate bitterness, notes: floral, citrus. remains steady with the hops as it warms. Medium body. Finishes with a grassy bitterness. This one is all about the hops; lots of flavour but not overpowering on the bitterness. Definitely a tasty brew!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Pours translucent golden orange without much head, a thin spotty layer of retention, only a few singular very slow steady streams.
Nose: honey-toffee malt, orange citrus undertones. (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: crisp-thicker mouthfeel, incoming malty
Mid-palate: half-creamy, (MAIN) orange-citrusy hops, sweet barley malt-> (lvl-5)-sweetness
Finish: white peppery rye with bitter melon hopped bitterness dry finish.
Summary: Good interesting incorporation of rye into the IPA. An enjoyable brew of citrus, malt and bitter hops.

It feels like they took their Hop Circle IPA, bottled it and stuck a different label on it. The Hop Circle is freakin’ amazing though, so yeah, this too, is pretty good. Just feel I was scammed a little :/ Very slight different taste on the finish that’s about it. Overall, still a fantastic beer.

A solid rye ale. Pours a dark golden. Nice lacing. Aromas of rye bread, citrus, and a touch of sour cream and onion chips. Interesting. Nice rye and citrus flavours followed by a nice hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Somewhat cloyingly perfumed hop aroma. Golden, offwhite head. Medium light mellow body. Sweet tropical, not quite as grandmotherly as in the nose, nice in the end, did not taste like a noble gas at all.

Jaune avec un col moyen blanc
L’arôme d’houblon et du seigle. Le goût est le même, presque équilibré avec du malt léger.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice golden colour with great head and retention. Excellent lacing. Smelled pine right from the start which isn’t my thing really. The taste is Bitter pine and grapefruit with rye undertones. Has a spicy after taste, interesting mixture. Worth trying again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a white head. Sweet aroma with a burst of fresh citrus and tropical fruits, and a very nice subtle spiciness. Flavour is fairly bitter, lots of citrus zest and well-balanced rye spiciness. A touch too much hop bitterness in my opinion, but mostly a great IPA and one of the best rye brews I’ve tried. Nicely done.
