3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown coloured beer with medium sized head and lots of lacing. Rye pops up first and then some sweet notes, hops stay back in the aroma. Rye balances the hops making this relatively sweet for IPA. Maybe a bit too thin body and needs a little more hops. Nice experiment with rye malts.
