Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma of orange, tropical fruits, pine, sweet malts. Flavor had a sweet apple juice taste to it. Also got pine, orange, and mango. Body was medium and texture was thin. Average carbonation and smooth to finish. Easy drinking, but nothing world class. OlyIPA (30) - - JUN 12, 2015

Brian brought over a growler. Pretty standard stuff but good. Well balanced, well hidden alcohol, some light tropical notes, and standard big grapefruit. Thanks Brian! Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Pine, resin, citrus. Medium full body. Bitter sweet grainy finish. Not bad dlovell2 (2381) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2015
Pours a hazy, light golden color with a white head. Aroma is fruity citrus, mango, papya, and pine. Flavor is oranges, mango, pineapple, and candied papya. Finishes with a resiny pine. Light bodied. Interesting concept of using rice to accentuate the hops. With using the rice in place of malt there is no sweet caramel malt base usually used in this style. knevison (1) - Hockessin, Delaware, USA - APR 1, 2015 does not count
This is a very tasty, clean, strong beer that is a quite piney IPA. I was pretty impressed by the light colour to high ABV relationship, but overall it leaves a good, easy taste in your mouth and you’ll be left wanting more. This brewery is becoming one of my local favourites. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
On tap at my hotel in Jersey. I asked the waiter what they had on draft. He ran through a very uninspiring list, and at the end said "and IPA." I ordered it, and asked him to tell me which one it was when he came back. To no surprise, he never told me which one it was, and just stared at me blankly when I asked what it was he had brought me. Sigh… In any case, poured a light gold, clear, slight head. Aroma was an exciting shot of tropical and citrus malts, tangerines baby. Flavor matched, with just enough light crackery malt to hold it together. Really good stuff. I had a second one, wandered up to the bar, and figured out by staring at the tap handle intently just what i had ordered. Now that I am rating it and see the ABV, I can see why I was feeling a bit like a lightweight that evening. Not exactly an IPA. But an enjoyable highlight in the beer wasteland I was in, not that far off the exit it is named after. The rice really does lighten it up and let the hops really shine through.
