jjacobs445 (7) - Rolla, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2012 does not count
Can’t really smell right now. Giving it an average aroma score until I can try this again. Appearance i s a hazy/cloudy golden brown with a tint of orange. Patchy white/tan foam. Taste is hoppy and bitter obviously, but not that overpowering. Light body and very bubbly.

Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2012
This poured a dark amber to ruby color with a beige head. Aroma was grassy and citrusy hops, with nice rye spice in there too. The rye flavor really coems through nice in the taste, to blend with the bitter hops, but agian like all SN IPAs, too much bitterness and not enough hop flavor.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2012
Light amber body under a rocky tan head, good retention. Big nose of dark grains and a twinge of citrus cascade hops. Floral and slighted roasted taste, quite bitter finish on the sides of the tongue. Think bubbily palate but has a real presence, very long finish. Beautiful!!

Jayseppi (159) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
Rusty copper with eggshell white head. Grainy with strong hopping that gives off grassy scents. Caramel, wet grass and pine in the flavour. Mildly bitter finish.

jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - APR 21, 2012
Very good. Bottle, pours a dark amber color. Aroma and taste is similar to a good IPA, but with nice rye notes. Not bad at all.

3.4
fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - APR 21, 2012
A hazy red amber beer with a small frothy off white head. The aroma is piney, grapefruit, and floral, but also earthy. The flavor is slightly grainy and spicy, a little citrus and a big floral finish.

3.9
Nsanders (1144) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2012
Dark amber with tall head. Strong fruity, citrusy hop smell, apricot, pinneapple, and brown sugar. Moderate bitter/sweet that fades to a bitter sftertaste. Very active carbonation.

3.6
DSG (14838) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 21, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrus, some tropical fruits and rye. Bitter grapefruity and piney hops flavor, somewhat resinous, with some malt, light caramel sweetness in the background, a touch of rye and a nice lingering bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel. Really nice.

spacecube (1723) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 pours a deep amber, small head quickly reduces to a lacing, caramel and rye malts, with sharp citrus coming through, quite sweet malt character with some hop balance, finish is long and moderate bitter. Carbonation is lively, nice one!

Erasmus_ro (2945) - Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Tap @ Yard House, Las Vegas 19/04/12. Pours clear copper with a large, eggshell head. Aroma is fruity, apple skin, grapefruit. Taste begins pith, apple skin, fruitiness. Turns pine in the middle and finally rye and dry caramel with the pith in the finish. Palate is quite full, rather too much so. Went excellently with a blackened swordfish taco, complementing the charcoal in the swordfish with the rye and caramel and the cilantro with the hops.
