2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A- Rye, floral, slight caramel, spices.
A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, minimal head.
T- Rye, piney, caramel, spices, bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- Certainly heavy on the rye. And I think that helps it quite a bit. Also a lot of bitterness and floral spice and an otherwise average IPA.

Can; poured a clear gold amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus/orange, rye spiciness and some earth. Flavor had a similar flavor profile. Seemed to get tastier throughout the can.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 16 oz can. Pours a hazed golden orange color with a white head and heavy lacing. Earthy, malty aroma. Flavors of lemon peel, orange zest, and grass. The finish is bitter, earthy hops with a hint of caramel as it warms. A decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent rye IPA, though weak on the rye as far as I’m concerned. It could use a little spicier definition. Amber with a crisp finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A clear, bright, sunset amber body displays a few streamers beneath a frothy smooth white head falling slowly to create dense, rhythmic, frothy lace all around
Bright aromas and flavors of peach, citrus, green melon, and a touch of dankness accented by rye spice with a shade of umami flowing through and growing with warmth on a smooth, lightly carbonated medium body offering soft creaminess, light tact, and a balanced residual of clean fruity-nutty sweetness against drying bitter citrus
I’m a little surprised by the lower ratings, I enjoyed the well formed, clean, focused profiles with the high ibu coming across in a very juicy, approachable manor

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An eminently mediocre IPA. Aroma was almost non-existent and the taste was a mixture of clashing elements. I was given a four-pack by a friend. We each drank a can. I later tried another one, and will toss the last one.

1 pint can. Hazy cooper color, light white head. Aroma and taste of hips, rye, with notes of grass, malt, and slight caramel. Not as much rye sour impact as other versions of this style.

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? It’s merely a trendy grain, and rather unpleasant; astringent and boring.
