Pour on tap at Avery IPA fest, clear orange pour with white head, aroma is soapy, slightly spice, hints of rye but muted, some slightly sweet orange, caramel in there, hints of earth. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, caramel, very slight rye, touch of biscuit, spice, yeast notes, watery finish, not much bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Inaugural Boulder IPA Fest. Pour is golden orange with a huge two-finger white head. Faint aroma with light touches of soap, flowers, and spice. Taste is very simple and straight-forward lightly tart, soapy, and bready with a light citrus, bitter finish. Thin body with soft carbonation. Meh.

draft. sparkling gold body with an off-white head. rye and barley in the nose gives it a corn syrup note; hope are snappy and bright with medium pungency and light spice. slick, oily, waxy mouthfeel, which I get in nearly all Upslope products. sweeter than I like (big surprise), mostly clean and straightforward.

Pint on tap, crushed at Lyons Fork. Pours a yellowish orange with a fluffy head that sticks around a minute. Kinda hoppy, pretty sweet grain aroma. Flavor of cereal grain, slight hops, and and malty sweetness. Aight.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at Boathouse. Pours a medium white head, over a slightly hazy light amber (SRM7) body.....nose is pine, citrus, loads of cereal spice....taste is pine, citrus, light toffee/caramel sweetness, touch of floral honey, cereal (rye).....mouth feel medium, carbonation adds a pleasant spritz. This is a slightly different take on a very common style, which adds, with the rye adding interesting nuances in both aroma and flavor. With any luck it will become generally available, as it is quite good. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
