Bottle. This is the first time I have seen it at TJ’s, so I assume it’s relatively fresh. Beautiful copper color with a big, billowy head. Brilliant to look at. Citrusy smells come alive when it warms. I can detect the rye in the aroma, but it’s not a spicy aroma, but more dank. Nice malty backbone to balance out the bitterness. The hoppiness is straightforward, but smooth and all-around pleasing. Not enough rye flavor for my taste, but still a very good IPA.

Really nice beer! Pours dark copper with very light head. Pretty lacing. Nose is light pine. Up front hits of pine that then turns citrusy, maybe almost pineapple. Finish is a bit sweeter with some light pepper notes. Light in mout with medium carbonation.

L’aroma recorda el suc de taronja i el llúpol dona tocs de pomelo i pebre. El sabor es con una pinzellada de pebre fent-se present el sčgol. De cos mitjŕ amb una major carbonatació en el paladar. Good beer!

Oh, this is very nice! Think hoppy, spicey, peppery, citrus and sweet biscuity malts. Bitter sweet and spicey taste and sensational palate. Great beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
15/04/2012 330ml bottle (thanks dreadnord!). Ambrata, intensa, limpida, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca a grana grossolana, molto persistente. Al naso netti sentori agrumati, pungente, note di malto e grano. In bocca ha una struttura di malto importante che sorregge bene l’amaro deciso del luppolo. La segale la rende pastosa, conferendole un corpo importante. IPA molto buona.

Bottle. Pours a nice clear amber with thin white head. Rye comes through on the aroma with some resinous hops. Taste is piny with some light tropical fruits. A nice bitter finish. Nice

Draft. Brownish orange pour with a tight head a light version of the same color. Bright hoppy bite is balanced nicely by the dark grain flavors from the rye. Citrus pith and zest. The rye both sweetens and drys. Good balance, though brings some weight that fills one up.
