2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Homer321. Best by notch indicates the 1st week of the 7th month of 2014. ABV is labeled 6.2%. Pretty much totally hazy dark red color. Thin ring of khaki head. Leaves pretty decent ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Some tropical fruit, metallic notes up front. Pine, spicy rye notes. Bigger bitter taste. Light sweet. OK rye IPA. Might be some musty notes of oxidization in the nose. More hop bitterness than hop aromatic here. Big metallic in the finish makes this hard to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a mostly clear amber with a one-finger, light tan head. A well-blended dark roast malt and citrusy and grassy hop character are noted in the bouquet. Not a whole lot to say about the texture. Full body and gets a little astringent at the finish. Definitely has depth and beefiness in the flavor imparted by that same interaction of roasted malt and grassy and citrus hops.

Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Aroma is piney resinous hops with some rye bread. Taste is rye, pine, resin, and earthy. Really nice clean bitterness. Easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Ruby red/amber. Aroma is rye malty spice with citrus hops. The taste follows suit with emphasis on the red malts, a little caramel and pine too. The finish adds sweet peaches and apricot. Medium rich mouthfeel. A very balanced brew highlighting various flavors and textures. Good stuff. Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Thanks, Mark! Gradient from burnt copper to orange at the bottom with a quickly fleeting, off-beige head. Lots of juicy peach, tangerine, & mild grapefruit in the aroma; a bold, citrusy base with a sharp hint of pine & hop oil coming in late. Very, very mild malt & rye in the nose, if any. Taste starts with a danky hop bitterness, wet hemp oil & a good bit of bitter orange peel. Rye rushes in mid-palate; very dry & sucking the moisture from your mouth instantly, leaving you with a burnt toast aftertaste mouth coating. Lingering hints of earthy, dirty, & grassy hops. Slick, oily mouth feel at first with a superbly dry finish. A nice rye IPA, if only the aroma & the taste were a little more in sync with each other.

Bottle - Fruity with some spice and rye. Dark clear amber with a rich brown frothy head. Sweet malt and fruit with an earthy hoppy and a bit of spice. Interesting and very decent.
