riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Citrus initially caramel then mild rye spiciness as well. Pours a nice amber good color clarity head and lace. Flavors of citrus hop caramel rye malt a little herbal and earthy and more citrus in the finish. A little lighter on the rye than the an ruthless. Solid.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Clear amber pour with moderate foamy off-white head. Aroma is citrusy hops with some sweet caramel malt and light rye notes. Taste is on the bitter side, but in a good way. Piney hops and rye spice with some light maltiness to balance things out a bit. Palate is a bit resiny and slightly dry. Just the right amount of rye in this one to add to the flavor without being overwhelming or overwhelmed. I’ll be looking for this again.

On draft somewhere in town. Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Big citrus hop nose with lots of bready, spicy rye popping through. Nice bready rye spice body with a touch of caramel in the taste. Taste also has a nice resiny citrus notes as well with a clean finish.

TomTron (386) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Nice malt character in this one. Some grassy hops shine through but the rye is dominant here. Has somewhat of a watery finish but nothing off putting. Well balanced. Ill have this again.

Pours dark orange with a thin off white head. Leaves nice lacing. Great aroma of pine and grapefruit. Taste is pine, grapefruit, and rye. Nice bitterness and the rye is just right. This is really good.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit,m skunk bud, tangerine, melon and light rye. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, pine, grapefruit, light skunk bud and light earthiness with as smooth dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

beersearcher (2334) - Glendale, California, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Another rotator winner in my book. It has a load of bitterness but it is working in concert with some serious rye spice and a good hit of Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy. Getting some grape notes from the Nelson that match the spice.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 27, 2012
12 oz bottle. Clear amber with a thick, dense, beige head. Aroma of bright citrus, grapes, light caramel and a bit of spiciness. Flavor is bitter hops and lightly sweet caramel malt, the dry hopping is evident. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry, spicy, bitter finish. Very nice IPA, reminds me of their Nelson IIPA but with more malt and spicy rye character.
