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 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from tap at the brewery, with a small off-white head. Itís golden amber with a slight citrus aroma. Nicely balanced and the rye comes through at the end. A solid IPA that I would definitely drink again.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy, dark amber with a sticky head out of a 16 oz superior package. Light citrus on the nose, mostly sweet grapefruit, backed up with a healthy dose of diacetyl. Flavor has more citrus hop character, but I canít get past the Wertherís butterscotch. Iíll try it again another time, hopefully a different batch.

A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent Lacing

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.

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?

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?
