3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very tasty rye IPA that doesn’t overdo it on either end of the spectrum. Founders Red Rye PA is what I measure this type of beer by and this is pretty good. Nice orange color and pours with a modest white head and some moderate lacing. Had it at the brewery in a tulip glass. Aroma has lots of hop citrus and floral on the nose. The rye part comes out more in the actual taste as you get a few sips in. It’s well balanced and quick to go down. Another winner from RevBrew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle via archer liquors. Thanks Randy! A huge half danky half tropical hop nose that damn near makes my noise go into heaven. a slightly hazy dark yellow to dark gold color with white head that fades quickly with excellent lacing. very grapefruit. wow. malt is smooth and subtle with a hint of pepper and spice. dry enough to let the hops shine, but sturdy enough to stand up to a more than medium hop bitterness. that hop presence seems to dry out the beer. wow. this is good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL. for their Illinois Craft Beer Toast & Roast event. Dispensed to a tulip showing a bright & clear, deep golden color, with good persistence to the white, frothy head foam, and thick, wavy lacing. The aroma was expressively floral & citrus, with spicy & resinous hints. Medium bodied, the taste was similar notes as the nose, adding a touch of sweetness, and hop bitterness that was better than medium strength, and quite lingering. Very tasty, with some rye dryness partnering up with the bitterness at the finale.

Pours a dark golden/amber with almost no head but a ton of carbonation. Nose is very citrusy and floral. A lot of grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest and rye. Some resin. Mouth is very crisp. The very similar to the aroma but the rye is much more present. A slightly bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle dated Jan 7 2013, received Aug 2013: Didn’t realize the date codes until now. Straw in color, a bit dark, orangish, minor haze, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing. Soft floral aroma, a touch of rye, some citrus peel and pith, slightly candied, along with pixie stix. Guessing because of its age, the pixie stix is emerging. Smooth citrusy start, a touch floral, has that candied citrus peel I got on the nose. Smooth, rye appears in the background. Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. Finishes smooth, yet with some punch. Despite its age, its still holding together fairly well. Thanks Kevin!

Bomber. Pours a rich golden amber with a thick off white head. Aroma of citrus, spicy rye, some pine and rye bread notes. Definite floral and touches of resinous notes. Flavor is bitter, spicy, nice slight sweetness from the rye and malts. Dry, medium bodied, above average carbonation. Quite crisp and bitter in the finish. This is nice.
