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!

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.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Taste is grapefruity with a nice touch from the rye. Delicious beer.

After trying some other Rye IPAs and not being a huge fan I was a bit worried about this, but as usual Phillips nails it. Spicy malty/rye bite with their signature slightly bitter citrus hops. Yum!
