12 oz bottle. Pours copper with a big sticky off-white head. Citric and spruce hop aroma, caramel and spices/herbs. Strong bitter hops balanced by light caramel malts and mild rye spiciness. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tan and orange tinted, clear, head was ok and lacing is ok.
Aroma is a bit grassy with a good spiciness from the rye and a nice hoppy smell too.
Flavor is mild and balanced. The rye adds a nice touch of complexity. It’s hoppy but isn’t a hop bomb.
Body is medium, carbonation is ample but smooth.
It’s quite tasty. Every one of the sixer will be enjoyed.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light amber that produces that thick frothy head. Aromas of real grapefruit(it really smells close to the real thing), apricot, and peaches. Flavors mimic the aromas with some light dry notes and a light sweetness. There is a slightly unique floral hop note to this one that I haven’t seen in a vast majority of ipas tried. Leaves a light to medium bitter finish. More on the unique side of ipas I must note in the hop aromas and flavors. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A sweating bronze beer with a White! head. The aroma is musty, dank gym sock... which just means they used good hops. For all you Widmer, read AB-InBev haters out there, bow. Its a viscous copper pour. The flavor is delicious, mellow citrus hops and subdued rye malt. Drink this and cry over how good it is and your lack of worthiness to be drinking it.... haters!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home piced up at Wilbur’s Foco. I think I last had this four years ago at the brewery and enjoyed it. This pours a rust orange appearance with a cream colored head. Big spicy rye, spicy hoppy, mild skunk bud, piney aroma. Grapefruity, ganja, very spicy hoppy, big rye spicy, mild caramel flavor. Pretty fun beer to drink. I got this in a mix six pack, but I’d pick up a six pack.

It poured a cloudy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pine and some grapefruit. It had a medium mouthfeel with some pine hops and a nice lingering bitter finish. A good IPA.

On tap. Really nice looking pour. Bright orange. Was hard to smell in the small tasting glass. But over all I caught some nice hop aroma. Full bodied. Really wonderful to drink. Balanced. Finishes hoppy full of citrus and a slight "spice" note.

From tap. Pours amber in color with small head. Aroma was fruity and sweet
Taste follows with sweet malt caramels and passion fruit hops. Slight bitterness to balance it all out. Very enjoyable.
