On tap at the Boise pub. Hazy redish amber with a small white head. Malty and mild. Malty and fairly bitter. Not quite IPA levels. Balanced and a bit woody notes also. Fairly soft and full palate. Pretty good. My first draft at the new Boise site. douglas88 (9192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A great fruity and rye nose. The flavor is big sweetness, spicy rye and hops, oranges, lemon zest. Very good. Super drinkable. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice rye flavors and aroma. Good hops backing. This was one beefy malty beer this could be a meal. XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013

In short: A well malted rye-forward and very hoppy-bitter IPA. Tasty.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase.
The look: Clear dark amber body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose is unstably rye-forward with dank coniferous hops, like slices of rye bread covered with wet pieces of pine tree and pine needles picked up from a wet forest floor. Tasted has plenty of toasted rye (strong toasted rye bread sensation), some juicy liquefied caramel, a generous assertive piney and grapefruity hopping, a biting bitterness of medium-high intensity, a mild lemony acidity. Surprisingly corpulent for a 6.5% clean IPA. Pleasant full body and well levelled carbonation. Well balanced but this beer is a bit too sweet and too bitter to be a session beer, this is more a tasty IPA than a refreshing one. If you like rye-forward beer and if you like bitter American IPAs, this one won’t disappoint you. I wrote this rating late at night, not sure if it can be trusted, I’d like to delete my drunken ratings if only I could tell them apart from my sober ones.
