3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small, white head with good retention and an even better, lasting, sticky lace. Murky, gold colored brew. Gots a juicy, resiny citrus nose with notes of pine and some crystal malts. Body is medium with a nice carbo level. nicely oily, resiny, juicy. Sticky, citrusy hop flavors, grapefruit and tangerine with some woody, cedary notes and just a splash of lightly sweet malts. The rye is hard to find, at least for me but no matter as this is a juicy lil IPA. Nice, round finish that lasts. Nice brew! My first Renegade beer and its a nice one. Thanks for the cans, stumpy!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy golden yellow from the can with thin white ring of lacy head that sticks very lightly. Aroma is hops, I think its magnum and fuggles, and then a hint of rye on the back end. Taste is slightly bitter, fresh hop, a little astringent from the rye. Not too bad, but nothing I really want to seek out again.

Pours a medium, well retained off white head, over a slightly hazy gold (SRM 5) body......nose is toffee/caramel, pine, light citrus, grain....taste is toffee/caramel, rye spice, pine, light grapefruit, finishing with a lingering hop bitterness....mouth feel medium, slight astringency, carbonation adds acid bite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
8/18/12 notes: Draft, brewery. Pour is murky-but-vibrant gold with a small white head. Aroma is a zippy blast of cut flowers and citrus. Body is creamy, in total support of the flavorful blend of hop teas, and a doughy, angular malt bill. Bitterness on the tail end completes the experience. Iím sure this is really at its peak when fresh from the brewery. 3.7.

On tap at brewery. Pours amber. Nice sweet aroma. Itís not quite overly bitter and the rye really sticks out well on the back end. This is quite enjoyable and a great start for the brewery.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
16oz can ~$2.75. Not sure why I bought this since it was really overpriced at $11 for a four pack, maybe I was just itching for something new. The very first aroma that hit me when I opened the can was plastic, ugh. Color is bright hazy orange, good head and lacing. The plastic faded from the aroma once I poured it into a glass and became a bit of piney hops and a maltiness. Taste unfortunately has that plastic note, maybe its the rye? Not sure because Iíve had plenty of rye beers and never caught this plastic note before. Its really too bad because I can taste a good malt/hop combo hiding behind the rubber/plastic. Iím going to revisit this review if any of the other three cans are better but as it stands I wonít be buying anymore Renegade beers.
edit: noticed a big flocculated chunk of white yeast (I hope) stuck to side of my glass, ugh. Maybe thatís the source of the plastic?
