Amber and slightly hazy. Thick head. Earthy hop nose, maybe with a little rye. Caramelly malt accent on the nose. Earthy hop bitterness, lots of fruity hops (papaya) and just a hint of rye chewiness late.

brokensail (10744) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Rather dark for an IPA; a dark shade of amber with an off-white head. Spicy hops and rye with some citrus notes. Grapefruit and orange peel with a hint of pine. Sweet caramel malt in there as well. The flavor is a bit sweeter/maltier than I’d like. Quite a bit of rye character to it. Spicy hops and rye with bitter pine and a bit of orange peel and grapefruit on the finish.

adnielsen (8970) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
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.
