Sample at Parkville MIcrobrew Fest 2016. Comes a hazy golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and pine. Taste is citrus, pine, malt, and grain. Pretty darn good.

From a can. Cloudy orange, nice white head. Smells like rye toast, with some green, grassy notes.Nicely dry, with woody, toasty flavors. Resin, piney bitterness. Clean finish.

16 oz can. Murky and coppery-orange with a smallish head. Aroma is kind of earthy, and of rye. Rye is obvious from the get-go, but it’s not overwhelming, providing taste, but almost no rye spiciness. Orange, citrus hops with a decent sweetness to balance. Palate is a little bit watery. One of the more unique rye beers I’ve tried in that the rye taste is there with almost none of the spice. It’s good.

Thanks to Doran the was sent to me in trade. This poured from the 16 oz can a hazy golden orange color with a beige head and excellent lacing. Attractive. Nose is rye, tropical fruit and citrus and floral hops. Medium in body with a resinous mouth feel. Flavor is rich with the rye and tropical fruit in good balance and the finish is big on the tropical fruit and nicely bitter. Really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 12/12/14 from a 16oz can, thanks to Shea. Pours hazy burnt auburn with an average beige head that slowly recedes to fairly thick, sticky lace. The nose is a cool blend of spicy, cereal rye with a lightly fruity, earthy green hops aroma. The flavor is nicely balanced with even more fruity hops, nice spice and earthiness balancing. The body is medium with average, smooth carbonation, and a long fruity, bitter, and spicy finish.

Pretty good ipa. Doesn’t taste like a 7%. Hits clean, but after a few minutes you get a bit of malt. Not a problem. My slacking on drinking shouldn’t matter in the review of a beer. This is a super solid and good ipa. Just not the best after you faded out and woke back up and started drinking again.
