porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 24, 2012
(Bottle (2012) from Tullys) Pours amber, mostly clear. Bit of a coppery hue. Three fingers of off-white, lightly amber head. Mouthfeel full, smooth, thick, a touch pebbly. Sticky, weepy, broken lacing. Aroma of fresh pineapple-citrus, grapefruit and pine over lighter caramel and vanilla. Flavor of citrusy and lightly piney hoppiness over rye, caramel and vanilla. Love the graininess of the rye, works very well with everything here. Great IPA.

jjacobs445 (7) - Rolla, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2012 does not count
Cant 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 (6505) - 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.

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.

Nsanders (1070) - 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.

DSG (12552) - 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.
