Pour on tap is clear orange with nice white head, aroma brings notes of big pine, caramel, orange and citrus notes with a nice spicy rye presence. Taste is a nice mix of pine and spicy hops, touch of orange and grapefruit, hints of rye spice but not really very present, touch of biscuit and caramel finishes fairly bitter. Nice stuff, like it!

Ernest (6257) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of butter/diacetyl. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A very simple, buttery example. Drain pour.

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Amber in color clear with a thin head. Nice malt addition with a good use of rye. Light spice form the re and a good amount of hops backing. A good IPA.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2011 [Have had a few more times since the initial batch - the hop profile is much more strong and crisp, keeping the sweetness much more in check - solid and my current go-to local IPA] Tap at the brewery - lightly hazy orange - nose explodes with wet, fresh, citric hop character - medium body, creamy mouthfeel - mildly acidic, with moderate sweetness to balance - moderately bitter, earthy hop character, carrying a lot o citrus flavor, complimented fairly well by the light sourness of the rye - a bit yeasty, and the sweetness lingers a bit, but I enjoyed this one.

Deep opaque copper. Aroma has slight rye with a ton of citrus hops. Smells also, oddly, of freshly cleaned copper. But the taste is where itís at. Caramel malt and rye hit first, with some grapefruit/orange citrus rind, resinous and juicy. Balanced, assertive, big delightful flavor. Win!

travita (4053) - Frisco, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Can. The look is a foamy cream colored head, clear, and golden in color. The smell is pine, rye, light, fruit, and grain sweetness. The taste is is hops, pine, fruit, and rye.

64 ounce growler thanks to Armin. Nice orange pour. Good foamy head. Caramel. Bitter. Not in your face hops, but well done and balanced. Very tasty and even at 7% feels very drinkable and sessionable.

16 oz can. Bright amber orange with an average off-white head. Aroma is of rye, spices, light pine, grass, sesame seeds, and malt. Taste is of toast, sesame, caramel, light pine, and dried leaves.

sonnycheeba (3592) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Tap. Pours clear gold with average, fizzy white head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is rye, grassy hops, rice, spice, biscuit malt, and floral hops. Flavor is straw malt, grassy and floral hops, light fruit esters, and faint honey; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2013
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.
