2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bitter, and not much else. I taste the Rye, but so what? Itís merely a trendy grain, and rather unpleasant; astringent and boring.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz. can at Denver Day of Rock. Appearance: straw yellow, clear. Aroma: pine heavy, citrus, floral, light caramel. Palate: average carbonation, medium body, very soapy and bitter finish. Taste: nice malt sweetness and mild bitterness at the end, but as it lingers the bitterness builds more and more in a not too pleasant way. Overall, aftertaste on this (4-6 seconds) is not pleasant for me. Other than that, pretty good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the taproom. Hazy amber-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short spicy hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewery. Golden amber and clear appearance with a white head and lacing. Sweet aroma with light citrus, light spices and some off-notes. Similar flavor, sweet and tangy, with an average body. Tastes off, bad batch perhaps. Whereís the rye?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad beer, but fairly unremarkable in the sea of really great IPAs, and ryes increasingly, that are out there.
Color and unremarkable beery orange, and very little head when poured from the 16oz. can. Nose is pleasant with mild rye spice, some sweet orange, and floral hops, but more muted than I was expecting. Tastes of all that, with some grass and malt that seems nice until it is abruptly stomped out by too much bittering hops, which is basically the death of this beer - I can see a re-tweek of the recipe fixing the problem, but right now the brewís good qualities are overshadowed by the astringency.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewery: Pours orange/amber with a white head. Aroma is rye, caramel malt and a bit of light hops. Taste too is more rye than IPA in my opinion. The hops were really underdone. Not particularly bitter or anything like that. While this is perfectly drinkable, I found it underwhelming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at the brewery. Pours cloudy orange with a tall white head and dense lacing. Aroma is adequately hoppy, pineapple, grapefruit and pine are here. Rye cuts through as well. Itís got a full mouthfeel and juicy citrus with a bit of rye spiciness. Itís well balanced and decently bitter. I could use more pop from the hops, but itís good stuff.

Can. Pours orange with off-white head. Smells slightly musty, citrus. Not too much aroma. Has a very maltiness about it. Not overly hoppy, kind of boring. Spicy, pepper...itís just okay.
