4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a deep, almost clear ruby with a dense light tan head that leaves very good lacing. Aroma is pine, pepper, and soap. Taste is a wave of bittersweet rye followed by an intensely clean and bitter pine/soap finish that lingers for a while. Mouthfeel is thick, but thin enough to be refreshing. This is a good IPA alternative, and showcases the new hops well.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Red with a thin white head. Aroma is roasted malt and mild pine hops. A little hit of resin at the edge. Flavor is mild pine hops with a resinous texture and a strong mildly sweet malt finish. A bit of sharpness from the rye comes through in the aftertaste. Reminds me of their Big Hoppy Monster, but a little less over hopped.

Pours brown with a minimal light tan head. Aroma is "in your face" piney hops. You can also smell the sweetness, which combines well with the hop aroma. Taste is initially rye malts leading to slightly sweet pine and a well balanced malt/bitterness in the finish. All of the flavors in this medium bodied ale are complimentary with nothing over the top. Subtle & well made!

Intense pine nose with grapefruit accents. Clear ochre, thick tan head, lacy. Pine and rye flavor, perfectly balanced, for an IPA. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Wow, such a wonderfully well rounded beer, straightforward, sessionable, flavorful, and not overly fruity.
