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!!

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrus, some tropical fruits and rye. Bitter grapefruity and piney hops flavor, somewhat resinous, with some malt, light caramel sweetness in the background, a touch of rye and a nice lingering bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel. Really nice.
