3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super hazy amber coloured body with a dense, three centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of bright grassy and herbal hops with a large rye-based malt nose and a lot of alcohol seemingly from the smell, even though 4,5% is printed on the front. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong rye flavours up front with a big hop flavour of grass, herbs and tropical fruits and a subdued yet earthy malt noticeable at the trailing end. Aftertaste is rich, yet light and showing a herbal note as well, but the hops are flavourful as well. Overall, a surprisingly nice balanced and unique beer that shows both a Light IPA quality and some of specialty grains (in this case, rye), while still remaining light and not cloying the slightest. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 17-May-2015 for US$2,24 sampled at home in Washington just hours after returning from one of the premier beer states (Michigan) to realise that Virginia and Washington have nothing on any real beer-making centre.
