3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Notes from Denver trip: At Sputino on 32nd. Light gold pour, nice white head, good lace. Nose is rye and citrus. Bitter. Middle is rye malt backbone, biscuit creeping in on the side, balanced hop bitterness. Finish is beautifully bittersweet duel between hops and malt.

16 oz can purchased at Joy in Denver, Colorado. The pour is a hazed copper golden with a small white head. The aroma is spice rye, paired nicely with caramel malt, followed by a lighter floral hoppiness. The taste is the spice of the rye with the malt primarily, the floral (additional spice) hops under that. The palate is medium bodied with a lower carbonation level and black pepper and spice rye in the finish.

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

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Solid straightforward IPA that gets rounded out by earthy, rustic rye notes. Took a growler of this home. Nice go-to if they decide to bottle it. One of the better rye IPAs Iíve had.
>>>lowering the ratings on this from a 3.8. Donít know whatís up...havenít had this beer in a while. New 12 oz. can down from the tallboy. Dank, dank, dank. Chasing the Colorado weed crowd? Hopping has totally changed to a one-dimensional dank bomb from a rye spice, citrus hop, well rounded beer.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grass, earth, rye, and mustiness. Flavor of orange, grass, rye, caramel, and pine with a dry finish.

Big resinous piney hops. Rye bite, but not much other malt. Light mouthfeel adds to drink ability.

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
T: Rye, Bittering Hops
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Bitter
Overall, nice character but only bittering hop character for taste was disappointing.

Rye IPAs are becoming a can't miss category for me. This is a good example. A tad sticky and malty in the finish, but it goes good with the hops.
