3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A murky honey colored beer with a smallish white head, some lacing. Very nice aroma: new leather shoes, dried orange zest, old grocery bags with green topped onions stored in them, that finishes with a mild pine. Taste is surprising in the lack of a hop bite. The mouthfeel is satisfactory with a pine aftertaste that turns plastic as it warms… the Achilles of most IIPA type beers.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. Hazy deep orange pour, with a beige head. Grapefruit and tropical fruits overlie a distinctly earthy malt note -- that’s definitely the rye. The rye really gives it a weightier flavor -- there’s some funk and a lot of character in here, and it finishes on an acerbic note, moving through tropical fruits to a super-bitter pine/grapefruit. Packs a huge flavor punch for being 7%. Quite interesting, and definitely tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. A big, off-white head forms over an unclear, hazy dark golden to amber body. The aroma is resiny and citrusy with some maltyness. Bubble gum hints, lemon and a faint peppery hint. It could use a tad more bitterness, as the malty sweetness has too much room. Lemon, resins and some bubble gum and pepper hints. Full body, a tad too sweetish and carbonated, but very silky on the palate. Lasting finish with citrus peel and pine cones. A nice one indeed, although a tad too sweet. 130222
