3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small but thick foamy head that fades normally and leaves some nice lacing. Lots of rye bread in the aroma with some caramel, pine, and citrus. Taste is not as good as the aroma. Decent flavor but very rough. I think it’s just too much rye for me. Very little sweetness and a strong bitterness. Spicy rye finish. Overall, I think the caramel mixed with the rye is weird here. It still does have a great aroma and appearance. I could see some people loving this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour with decent near white head. Bottle is a few months past its prime, but still pretty damn solid. Sweet, grapefruity citrus nose and flavor. Some lemongrass bitterness on the tail. The spiciness of the rye has faded, but it is still there. One of the better rye beers i’ve had i would say.

Outstanding IPA. Sweet water has done it again. Just enough rye in the taste to make it different than the regular IPA. Great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours a pale orange with a white spongey head leaving a bit of lacing. Aroma has fresh fruit and pine. Sweet hoppy and fairly subtle. Taste is of sweet fruits, pine and some citrus. Very faint caramel underneath, but this brew is about the hops. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky and quite dry -- only real indication of rye presence. Finishes bittersweet although fairly short. A tasty, solid IPA, that is a bit muted likely due to the rye.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy orange pour with a white head and white lacing. Nose is malty. Big hop character is balanced by the malt with bitter and piney finish.

From bottle. Medium fruity hop aroma and a little spicy rye character. Medium golden amber clear with mild haze, topped with rocky-foamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Solid IPA, mild malt sweetness with a light rye spicy note. Good fruity hop flavor with medium bitter finish and lingering bitter after.

Bottle from tackle box. Pours bright golden copper with small white head. Smells of rye, grass, hops, and caramel. Taste follows aroma with a earthy hop bite most pungeant in the finish. A little thin with medium carbonation. Sexy brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer pours an attractive golden color with a thin white head. Nice fresh hop resin nose with some grainy notes. Strong malt sweetness with tons of orange peel, candied grapefruit rind and tangerine hoppiness. Well balanced with a strong rye grain influence. This is a tasty beer.
