3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best before 10-15-2012.
A: The body is a slightly hazy dark amber/copper body with a steady stream of carbonation from the nucleation point on my glass. A thin yet dense and creamy light tan head sits on top, not much retention but leaves a dense coating on top.
S: Interesting spicy, bready and citrus aroma hinting at a slight bitterness to this, mildly sweet.
T: Bready malts with rye spice on the intro with hints of caramel, the rye spice continues through to the end underlying the beer, while a spicy pine hop bitterness matches the rye really well. The finish hints at citrus and lingers for a bit of spice and dries out really well. This is a good beer.
M: Medium bodied with crisp carbonation.
O: This is a great addition to their year-round line-up. This is a very solid Rye IPA and the hop choices really do well matching the rye in here.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
EBD 11/15/14. Pours a clear medium amber with a slight hint of garnet. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of pine, citrus and spicy rye over a biscuit and caramel base.
Medium body with a slick texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a strong burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is intense, moderately complex and well balanced. It begins with a bready rye note that is a bit spicy. The middle brings a mild bitterness that has a bit of rind and pine flavor. As the bitterness fades, a rich malt sweetness comes to the forefront coupled with mango notes from the hops. The finish is a slow fade of rind, caramel and a nice rye bite.

Hop resin aroma, reddish colour. Not too bitter, some rye afteratse, could be a bit heavier bodied, although it’s medium bodied. Decent I guess.
