3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle and served in my ye olde SN pint glass (this is my third bottle so I guess I should rate this now...) : Pours a clean coppery hue with a rocky frothy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of PNW piney, citric, dank and peppery hop esters along with some rye bread, biscuit, and slight lactic presence. The taste is much more straight forward DIPA than a rye beer, heavy on the citric twang and pine needles. Very earthy and slightly metallic along with a punch of pepper and clove. The rye does make an appearance towards the finish but do not expect the flavor profile of a herbal beer here... this is all about the hops. The mouth feel is sprite and aggressive, a tad metallic and boozy. Perhaps too much to be something I would want to drink more than one of in a session. Overall I like this brew but do wish the rye component was more forceful and I do wish this showed less of that "SN yeast profile". That said, my other three bottles will not be going to waste.

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.

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

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.
