sschliv (4) - Hainesport, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2012
2012 12oz bottle poured a hazy amber color with good carbonation and a ivory white head. Aroma was a pleasant rich resiny hop smell with a hint of citrus. Bitter grapefruit and toasty rye flavor. Hops definitely steals the show. Overall a good beer for hops lovers. Might be a little bitter for some folk. I would buy it again. ---Rated by Sschliv via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at The Firefly, Hereford. Hazy copper with off white head. There is a rich, grainy, floral note to this from the off, resinous then quite spicy in character. The hops are sharp, leafy and citric, good depth if a touch over boiled. Heavy flavours throughout. Good stuff.

In short: bitter rye ale.
Pours quite clear amber with frothy off white head. Long head retention, some lacing. Herbal, cereal, caramel nose. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is bitter, some rye, malty, herbal, caramel. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste. good.
Comments: rye is quite noticeable in this one, something not so common.

I was surprised at how much I loved this beer. At first it’s sweet and it finishes bitter with not much else in between but I really, really loved it. Flavours are there but they’re fleeting. And delicious. Highly recommended

tfontana (613) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is weak malty base, rye and fruit. Appearance is slightly hazy copper with minimal sparkle, 1/2 finger-width off-white foamy head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is mild sweet malt and fruit, with mild spicy rye and bitter second half. Palate is medium bodied with sticky texture, average carbonation and mildly bitter finish. Overall, if this were a bolder version of itself it would be excellent, but it was pretty weak in the aroma and flavor departments.

IPA normal. Tiene aroma a caramelo. El sabor inicial no es intenso, aunque luego deja un sabor largo, pero para mi gusto no sabroso.

It's "ok", very light scent, you can taste the rye and it sort-of has a malty taste too. Not much of an aftertaste, something good and cold for a summer day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 355ml. Clear amber/orange with a foamy offwhite head. Deep fruity hoppy, grainy, pine, honey aromas. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Medium to low sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Deep malt character into a complex grainy bitter finish. Unique and very pleasant.

Bottle, 355ml. A clear amber beer with a medium size head. Aroma is of malt, rye and some spices. Taste is moderately bitter with some carbonation and faint astringency. Medium bodied with a cereal aftertaste. Interesting IPA with a faint hoppy character but a nice rye finish.

A quiet good one. Some nice hints of 02 and citrus. Maybe a little herbs and licorice with touches of smoke woody.
