4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very appealing ale to look at. Rocky, looming off-white crown atop a fiery, ruddy copper body. Fine streams of carbonation keep the head well afloat, the foam well adherent to the glass as it empties. Heavily spiced, phenolic, earthy and herbaceous nose. Really get the impression of roasted rye grain coming through the piney, camphorous and raw US hops of the aroma, a very pleasing, mellowing effect it has. Creamy, smooth yet meaty and rounded mouthfeel. Malty, dry and spicy; the rye is penetrating but in the same sense contained, balanced. A contradiction beer. Displays a very pleasing herbal and resinous hop back end, an assertive bitter finish and long malt, rye and raw hop finish. Viciously refreshing. Woody, piney, nutty and dusty; there is nuances of camphor, heather, nettles, whole hop cones like they were still floating in their, this is freakishly delicious. Restored admiration for this brewery came with less than a pint full. Addictively good stuff!! (12fl.Oz, 2012 release, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Draft to pint. Looks decent. Smells and tastes alright, but pretty mild, especially for a RIPA. mouthfeel is good. I liked it better from the bottle.

Nice amber color. Great lacing from a strong but not to full head. Has a good IPA taste but not as strong after taste. Taste almost some fruit notes

Solid beer. Good hop profile. Somewhat dry. Farily typical Rye IPA. Nice finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice mix of a doughy, bready beer and an IPA. The rye really stands out in this beer and the mix of hops balances it nicely. A bright amber pour with a small white head. Nice lacing on my glass that sticks throughout. Aroma of malts, rye, and hops. Flavor is citrusy hops and rye bread. A really nice brew.

aroma is hoppy,maybe mildly spicyand a little fruitiness in the back..clear liquid looks like iced tea and an impressive foamy white head with lacing..the taste is where the spiciness comes through..peppery,minty even,yeasty flavors and plenty of piney hoppiness citrus flavors there too nicely bitter..palate and drinkability..it went down real fast overall Im liking this a very flavorful beer with a moderate abv so quite sessionable
