4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber color. Light hops smells a slight malt sent arises as well. It has a nice hoppy start that is nicely contained before it runs to far. It leaves the palate surprisingly refresh for an IPA.

Clear brown colour, minimal head. Hoppy aroma with some caramel. Taste is only slightly bitter. Tingly mouthfeel due to cheerful amount of bubbles. Nice IPA.

Pour amber with a slight haze. Nice aromas of pine, citrus and what I want to say is rye. A nice balance with the taste. The rye something that I am not sure I like or not, but this is a well made brew that I enjoyed.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
