This poured a yellowish orange color with a white head. The aroma contains some rye but more citrus is showing through IPA style. The flavor is rather bitter with some citrus, namely oranges, and pine. Again the rye is a bit hard to detect but it aint no thang for me. Overall this is a good beer.

Bright ryed IPA nose with a thin,
Yellow orange look and thin head and lacing. Really nice flavoring, not deep and complex but bright and fresh. Mouth feel is light but fits with the rest of the brew and after taste is nice. Overall, I love all that is sweetwater, they can do no wrong in my eyes!

Smoke/rye/hint of citrus. Color is light compared to some ipas. Very light easy to deal with pallet. Seems like it would pair easily with many food groups

pours a clear orange with finger of off white fluffy head. Aroma of citrus, orange, slight sweet / sour smell. Medium bodied and surprisingly balanced, lighter in body than most AIPAs, modest carbonation. Flavor is citrusy hops with a sweet finish. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Pack’s Tavern. Pours orange with a thin white head. The most prominent note on the nose is the rye. There’s som eye on the tongue along with some citrus thing. Clean finish. I don’t think the rye complements the beer very well. It’s all a but muddled.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Hopjacks Filling Station in Pensacola. Pours a clear gold with a small, barely off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, floral notes, sweet malts, faint grass, rye, and slight tropical fruits. Flavor of citrus juice, sweet malts, floral notes, rye, pine, and pineapple. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy mouthfeel. Mild rye element. Nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy amber with a sudsy off-white head. Aromas of yeast, pine, and spices. Flavor has a good bit of the rye spice in it with some citrus coming through and a tad caramel malt balance as well. A bit of a watery mouth feel and comes off a little bland but still not a bad offering, just not as good as their standard IPA.
