4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BEST BY 08/02/15. Nose is brilliantly hoppy, normal citrus in the background, stronger pine and wood, but this time sweeter and starting to lean very tropical; caramel and rye also strong, lightly spicy dough, but it’s sweet and fruity first. Pours hazy orange with a bit of amber, rocky thick head is leaning tan-orange, as well! Taste semi-sweet, medium body quite smooth, refreshing and lively, citrus is spritely, rye backed off, alcohol heavy and prominent but not a singe to be seen, and there’s this love overtone of stretched caramel taffy, really in the best possible downashore way. Touch rasiny in the bg, and a lot of effect drawn from the wood and lightly musty herbal character. What a wonderful partneship of hops and malts, this is great fresh.

Thanks... was it Matija? Anyway, murky amber body. Malty, sweet aroma, light apples? honey... wha? Creamy taste, slightly herbal, pleasant bitterness, but more malty than hoppy. Yeah, past its prime too, but OK enough in a way.

Best by date of 08/08/15.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a sweet rye malt with a light citrus aspect backing it up nicely.
The taste took the sweet and let in a light spice in the balance and still let in a delicate citrus. All blended well into the aftertaste and left a quick semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonated nicely, this one had a nice bitterness rolling across my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA with a nice rye spice to tie things up. I’d have again.
