2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I finally made it up to Seven Bridges. Being unable to afford anything on their menu, I sought my calories in brew. I had the IPA. Pours amber colour. Looks good. Smells like an IPA. Taste like a ESB. That’s ok. It’s a microbrewery inside a restaurant. Decent bitterness, drink-ability is session-able, and palate is warmed. How about those made up words. Some citrus hints and candied malts inside this thing. A few spices but really, the bitter overpowers their subtle attributes. Overall I got buzzed before the new Star Trek movie with my younger brother and that’s pretty damn cool in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2010 Big thanks to jcwattsrugger for bringing this puppy to our weekly tasting. Pours deep gold with spotty white head. The aroma is bold spicy rye mixing with what might be hops with a bit of spiciness. There is a bit of an off note too. The taste has the same affect with spicy rye goodness, a thin layer of plastic bandaid and some sweet maltiness. I love the rye-ness of this brew. It ends with lingering spice and floral hops that head into the after taste.
On tap at the ‘010 FL Brewer’s Ball. Pours deep gold with loose white head. The aroma is sweet with spiciness, malts, spicy hops and a touch of grapefruit. The taste is pretty thin in body and becoming tart with spicy hops, a little bit of rye spice and then tart-ish with grapefruit like citrus hoppiness. Pretty darn thin overall but still pretty tasty and refreshing.

Bottle, courtesy jcwattsrugger. Pours a dark brass color, with a big white head and lots of lacing. Nose has tons of dry rye, some citrus and pine, distant medicinal note. Flavor has big rye, citrus and pine, woodsy notes, and some wheaty spice oddities. Balanced. Tons of rye gives it a unique character. Tasty and interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks jcwatssrugger for the share. Pours a clear brown gold with a nose of spicey rye, phenols, malt, and some piney hops. Flavor is a ton of rye malt in the flavor, but is rye and hops through and through. Some barely noticeable band-aid flavors. Very interesting and enjoyable beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at the Seven Bridges Brewpub in Jacksonville FL. Typical good brewpub looks with amber beer and medium white head. Mild IPA hop aroma. Pretty good flavor, malty and hoppy as in the regular IPA, but with the slight added flavor of rye malt. An interesting twist on one of the regular lineup beers, but not a huge difference in flavor. Drinkable and enjoyable.
