LtDan (1740) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a white film sittin atop.

Aroma: Grapefruit, green tea, grain, and floral hops.

Taste: Bitter hops, dry earthy malt, a little citrus burst weaving in and out of all of that mentioned. Bitterness fades seconds after each sip.

Mouthfeel: Juicy, medium bodied with average carbonation.

Overall: Above average, and one of the best executed Rye IPAs I’ve ever had.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Beautiful copper hue; good head retention. Sweet and juicy nose is mouthwateringly inviting. Creamy, smooth and full texture. Toasty-spicy malts. Fantastic hop flavors are just bursting with citrus (grapefruit, tangerine, lemon), sugared spruce tips and sweet grass. Snappy, peppery bitterness with lingering notes of grass in the aftertaste. Tasty IPA. In the series thus far, I think I liked this one better than Falconer’s, but not as much as X-114.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2011
12 ounce bottle from a local Kroger. Pours a clear copper with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of floral and tropical hop notes and rye, with a bit of toasted malts. The taste is piney hops, rye and faint malts. Medium bodied with a bit of lingering bitterness.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - NOV 22, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a crystal clear mahogany color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is strong pine and herbal hops. Flavor is also strong pine and herbal with a little citrus and malt sweetness in the background. Finish is fairly bitter with a touch of astringency. Medium body. A nice beer.

brenn79 (1429) - Idaho, USA - NOV 20, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours amber orange with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is unidentifiable hops and nice and spicy. The taste is mildly bitter with piney hops, a little caramel malt. Body is medium and sticky, carbonation is medium. Good solid IPA, much better than I thought it was going to be.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
poisoneddwarf (1616) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - NOV 20, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a relatively clear copper-orange with a large pillowy off-white head that retains itself admirably; sudsy lace sheets the glass. Aroma is pungent grapefruit--nice. Taste is bittersweet with no emphasis on either. The hops really shine here with the malt taking a backseat. Rye is noticeable but not overbearing. Carbonation is average, body is medium. A really nice IPA. I wasn’t expcecting much, so it was a nice surprise.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2011
bottled, orange to amber color with off white foam, aroma is sweet nectarines and grapefruits, flavors of bright grapefruit juice and some caramel malt, a little roast on the finish

emacgee (3871) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Pours a strikingly sharp and clean copper with two fingers of sandstone had. Very nice nose, lots of floral and citrusy notes, zesty with a very nice balancing sweetness. Light toasted malt character with some bready notes. Dry spicy palate with medium body and round carbonation. Very nice ipa.
