Bottle. Pours a copper brown with off-white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, but well-balanced by rye and malts. Taste is well-balanced between the hops and malts, slight bitterness in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper with decent, creamy, beige head , light lacing / Sweet, earthy nose of caramel, spun sugar, pine, citrus / Medium body, chewy, sweet but good balance and hop bite, with big bitter finish / Flavors of fresh caramel, grapefruit, pine, rye spice / Very nice in a sweeter, maltier style, and this bottle may be a little past its prime.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Herbal, fruity, spicy and light cereal-ish aroma. Flavor is tangerine-like fruit, herbal, pretty spicy (from both the rye and hops, I assume). Grainy rye malt flavor, with some sweetness. Moderate bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is hops, dirt caramel and some honey notes. nice caramel color, lots of head retention due to carapils. Mouthfeel is nice. The rye flavors definitely jump out at you. Pretty straight ahead, crystal, rye, pale malt combo. The rye just doesn’t seem like it works with these south of the hemisphere hops. after taste is pretty dry, bitter, and sour. Nice beer just not all that great. Enjoyability 3/5.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper color, head that quickly drops to rim, lots of dots of lace. Taste is caramel malt overtaken by cleansing hops. The two move in tandem to the finish. Excellent food beer (especially pizza!), uncomplicated, easy to drink. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderate hop aroma, with a touch of rye. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. The hops and the rye come together quite well in this, leaving a long rye finish. If you like rye and you like IPA’s, this is one to try, especially at the price point.
