3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can. Shared wit Gabe. 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. This is a nicely balanced, fairly typical IPA. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent Lacing
S: Rye, Mildly Bready

Overall, nice character but only bittering hop character for taste was disappointing.

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?

3.7 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.
