Aromas of rye, earth, pine and citrus. Taste is smooth but with a sharp rye presence and some spices. Pretty complex for being an IPA. I love it!

Love rye beers and this is a brilliant one. Slight spicy(herby?)ness from the rye, which balances well with the fairly punchy hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy deep amber and copper body and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rye, deep resinous and piney hops, some oatmeal and other specialty grains and a deep sweet smell from tropical fruits. Medium-bodied; Assertive grain and rye flavours up front with a good dose of hops and bitterness right behind, all with a smooth texture and good balance of malt to hops. Aftertaste shows the rye coupled with the herbal bitterness with almost no sweetness at all. Overall, a well-balanced rye-based IPA with a good level of hoppiness and a nice balance, but without some of the other complexities of yeast and sweetness noticeable. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 17-May-2015 for US$2,06 sampled at home in Washington on 04-August-2015.

In bottiglia. Colore ramato, schiuma fine e abb persistente. Aroma di biscotto, crosta di pane, erbaceo, resinoso. Al palato corpo rotondo, gradevole con sentori di biscotto, cracker, caramello accennato che virano su un amaro tagliente erbaceo, di erba appena tagliata e resinoso. Anche prossima alla scadenza è in buona forma e soddisfacente
