3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty much just a dry IPA. You can catch a hint of the rye in the aftertaste, but nothing special in aroma...starts of grapefruity - plenty of citrus and good hop flavor...nothing, however, that really stands out. Probably wouldn’t have even really noticed the rye if it weren’t in the name. A decent IPA, but nothing special.

The best thing about this beer was the aroma. I was expecting more, but sadly this beer was just not that great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle (2012) from Tully’s) Pours amber, mostly clear. Bit of a coppery hue. Three fingers of off-white, lightly amber head. Mouthfeel full, smooth, thick, a touch pebbly. Sticky, weepy, broken lacing. Aroma of fresh pineapple-citrus, grapefruit and pine over lighter caramel and vanilla. Flavor of citrusy and lightly piney hoppiness over rye, caramel and vanilla. Love the graininess of the rye, works very well with everything here. Great IPA.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can’t really smell right now. Giving it an average aroma score until I can try this again. Appearance i s a hazy/cloudy golden brown with a tint of orange. Patchy white/tan foam. Taste is hoppy and bitter obviously, but not that overpowering. Light body and very bubbly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a dark amber to ruby color with a beige head. Aroma was grassy and citrusy hops, with nice rye spice in there too. The rye flavor really coems through nice in the taste, to blend with the bitter hops, but agian like all SN IPAs, too much bitterness and not enough hop flavor.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light amber body under a rocky tan head, good retention. Big nose of dark grains and a twinge of citrus cascade hops. Floral and slighted roasted taste, quite bitter finish on the sides of the tongue. Think bubbily palate but has a real presence, very long finish. Beautiful!!

Rusty copper with eggshell white head. Grainy with strong hopping that gives off grassy scents. Caramel, wet grass and pine in the flavour. Mildly bitter finish.

Very good. Bottle, pours a dark amber color. Aroma and taste is similar to a good IPA, but with nice rye notes. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy red amber beer with a small frothy off white head. The aroma is piney, grapefruit, and floral, but also earthy. The flavor is slightly grainy and spicy, a little citrus and a big floral finish.
