draft at Harpoon. Pours dark orange with a thin white head. notes of orange and lemon on the nose. The citrus on the tongue also has some pine sol notes. finish lingers a bit. Solid but not spectacular. TChrome (1480) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2012
Beer pours dark honey color with a big, totally retained off white head. Aroma is predominately hoppy with big citrus and floral notes. Yum. The rye is buried under the hop aroma but is there somewhere. Flavor is pretty straightforwardly bitter with just a touch of rye sweetness. I am a sucker for rye IPAs and I really like this one!!! mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2012

12 oz. Bottle. I believe this is a new format for this beer. Pours a beautiful dark orangey color with some mild head. Tastes very balanced of hops and citrus but not over bearing...Now I know why they made this in 6-packs...awesome beer AdamChandler (5100) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 6, 2012
My amazing girlfriend picked up the first bottle being put on the shelves at Harpoon Brewery in Vermont. I had this before when it was the 100 Barrel Series. It was so popular, they made it into a 375ml bottle and started selling it beyond the specialty beer shops. Taken out of my fridge and poured into a Newcastle glass. Best by 7/15/12

A - Poured a 3-finger off-white head with a creamy appearance. The head subsided to a quarter finger pretty fast. The beer is a light golden brown with tons of very hazy / cloudy bits floating around. It looks like a solid dry hopped beer.
S - Yep, great hops right on the nose creating that classic pine and grapefruit scent with bits of orange peel. I’m getting very sweet hops and I’d like to say Centennial hops but I’m not quite sure. Very very fresh.
T - There’s a nice solid mix of rye and hops. The rye starts to dominate but the astringent hop profiles blast away at full force and cover the tongue with delightful bitterness. The rye finishes out the taste as you swallow. Very very good. There’s some roasted malts in this and a bit of nuttiness.
M - 80% bubbles on a single mouth swish that unleashes the great rye taste. Very very drinkable, medium-bodied and delicious rye taste that sticks around after swallowing. I’m a fan!
O - Yeah, I have to buy more of this. Delicious, drinkable and very nice as the weather starts warming up.
On Draft. light citrus/pine hop aroma, light citrus hop on the palate backed by pleasant pale malts and a slight spice from the rye. Not quite enough body or flavour to put this up there with the best rye ipa’s. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Bomber picked up by my lively wife at state liquors in md. Shared with friends. Pours a amber color, foamy head with fair retention. Scent is light rye and a hint of pine. Taste is same with addition of caramel malt.
