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

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.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a thin white head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is some spicy rye with tropical fruit and floral hops.
The flavor is sweet grainy caramel/toffee malt with some spicy rye and light tropical fruits. The finish is grassy, slightly soapy, hops that have good bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and with a big watery feel that washes things out.
Overall, an OK rye IPA - too watery though.
