A very drinkable, high gravity, crisp and spicy rye IPA, hopped generously throughout the brew process and then dry-hopped with over a pound per barrel of Sterling and Chinook hops. Earthy and spicy notes from both the hops and the rye malt, complimented by the floral and piney aromatics.

jgb9348 (5974) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Copper coloured body with an amber glow and a nice, three centimetre tall rich tan head. Aroma of metal, malt, rye, grain, toffee, earth, caramel and quite a bit of earthier hop scents. Medium to Full-bodied; Biting malt and caramel flavours with some nuts, earth, alcohol, rye, toffee, grain and a touch of oatmeal and other specialty grains. Aftertaste shows some alcohol, but a lot of caramel and rich toffee and earth characteristics while offering a subdued and pungent hop and caramel sweetness and flavour. Overall, a nice and pungent rye-based IPA that borders on Imperial, also just borders on a typical West Coast styled IPA. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from San Diego Lindbergh Airport on 15-December-2016 for US$7,70 sampled in the terminal at Phoenix, Arizona (thanks full opening can) later in the day on 15-December-2016.

javiercrasher (394) - Granada, SPAIN - NOV 15, 2016
De color cobre. Pino y hierba en nariz. Buen cuerpo. Espuma compacta y duradera, dejando encaje. Amarga en boca, resinosa y con el toque especiado del centeno pero bien equilibrada por el toque acaramelado. Final persistente y duradero. Cervezote!!

An aroma of caramel, pine resin, hops and a hint of citrus. Pours a slightly hazy caramel color with a short lasting white well laced head. Taste has a slightly sweet caramel note with hints of hops and resin, a fairly balanced taste with a medium body and a lightly bitter finish.
