651 ml. bottle. Bottled 7/23/13. Pours a medium well retained off white head, with extensive Belgian lacing, over a slightly hazy, light fold (SRM 4) body....nose is light pine, resin, floral honey, hints of cereal....taste is moderately sweet, with light cocoa hints, light rye spice, stronger resin, pine, citrus hints, finishing with a moderate bitterness.....mouth feel, medium body, slight acid, carbonation adds light spritz.. This is a lighter IPA, with the rye not overly present, bitterness constrained, but all in all well balanced. It might be that this bottle is a bit too old. BJCP 8/3/14/4/6

Pours cloudy light yellow. Aroma, spicy almost Brett like?, some perceptible hop aroma. Nice smooth start, backing into hop flavor and touch bitterness. Flavor seems Brett like, too. Nice spicy note with a great balance with hop flavor. Quite a nice IPA, rye or not. Smooth and balanced for IPA, nice citrus notes, pretty subdued. Need to drink more rye pas apparently. Solid!

mcberko (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at The Underground, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of citrus, with secondary notes of rye. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, loads of pine, and moderate rye. The rye isnt overdone, with a very medium body. Very piney and delicious IPA.

"This beer would have some serious potential fresh. Not sure of the age on my bottle, but you could tell it had sat for at least a little while. Pine peeeent but more muted than expected. Spicy and malty sweet, chewy body. Bittersweet spicy finish."

PorterPounder (7619) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - Abercorn - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky dark orange with an overabundant foamy white head - some quality problems it seems. Light spruce notes in the aroma, a touch of rye-like mint. Flavor s decent with some light citrus bitterness, a touch or rye-like mintiness, just a touch of white grapes. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it, but the annoying pour knocks it down a point.

kbudd19 (1009) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle, golden pour with a slight cloudiness to it, minimal head about a fingers worth. Aroma, nice hop presence but not overpowering, some mild citrus notes a bit of pine and some sweet malt. Taste, bitter up front, smooth and not as dry as I was expecting, light grains and a nice malty sweet finish. Really like this, very well balanced, not really anything that overpowers, well done!
