3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured slightly hazy and golden. A small white head with minimal lacing. Aroma is tangerine and sweet orange on a soda cracker. Flavor does have a touch of spice on the finish with some grain and caramel malt mid palate. This drink works its way from the nose to the front of the tongue and back through the back of your throat in a deliberate and tasty fashion. The rye is unmistakeable and mutes the bitterness, smoothing out the finish as well. A tasty and highly drinkable brew. Medium texture with average carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich hazy copper and amber coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rye (naturally), bright floral hops, alcohol, grain and cleanser - strong and pungent throughout. Medium-bodied; Strong rye and grain flavour at first with a good floral, citrus and piney hop note and a solid light honey sweetness near the end. Aftertaste shows the mellow sugars at first but then fades into the more ’natural’ floral hoppiness and of course the grain and rye. Overall, a nice rye-based IPA with a very balanced note and still some nice complexity throughout - great to sample if you like rye-based beers or IPAs with more of a deeper malt profile. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Corner Store (Bait & Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 30-December-2013 for US$2,39 sampled at home in Washington on 28-August-2014.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow to orange color with a nice looking one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute.
The smell had a nice allocation of Rye malt to spicy hops.
The taste was mainly spicy with a touch of sweetness to it.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly nice sessionability about it. The carbonation was nice and sharpness about it.
Overall, this was a pretty well done Rye IPA.
