3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Balanced aroma of rye, caramel and piney bitterness. Morish flavour of rye, sweet caramel, pine hoppiness and spice. Wonderful soft palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber color, average sized white head. Medium body, average carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruits, rye. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Texture is slightly watery, and there is not enough bitterness. I’m little bit disappointed with this IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOD 141/14. Pours medium amber with a slight haze. Normal head, lacing and retention. Nice nose of caramel sweetness over citrus and pine notes with a touch of spice. Light medium body, with a texture that borders upon creamy. Normal carbonation level with light effervescence on the finish. Balanced flavor profile with a bit of complexity. It begins with pine and citrus hop flavor which flows into caramel. As the caramel sweetness fades, the rye asserts itself. The finish is somewhat sharp with the rye and hop bitterness lingering. A solid offering, but not in the league of GL’s Rye of the Tiger or Founder’s Red’s Rye.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a semi-cloudy brown color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is slightly bitter with hops. The taste is big and bold with rye and hops flavors. It is smooth and flavorful with a grainy, hoppy finish leaving a bitter aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 fl oz bottle. Medium gold-copper colour with a tall, dense, off-white head which persisted well and left some nice lacing. Aroma of pine, floral perfume and citrus. A nice combination of: medium sweetness, complementary bitterness and a spicy bite to finish. Medium bodied with a creamy smooth texture. These jokers know how to make a beer. Thoroughly enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma has complex hops notes and a refined spicy undertow that is reminiscent of rye malt whiskey. Almost clear golden amber with a thin lasting head. A light and inviting sweetness and heavy bitterness lead to a surprisingly balanced overall taste. Medium bodied with a thin creamy texture and light carbonation. Bitter woody notes on the finish.
