MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Hazy off orange pour w/ a thick tall well laced white head densly made up of little bubbles and dissapates into some soapy looking head. Aroma is first a big hit of citrus and fruity hop aromas. Then some sweet caramel a hint of rye comes through lightly then gets covered up by a second wave of grassy hops. Palate is rich and lightly creamy. Flavor is subtly sweet on the front some of that is probably from the Rye as well with a resinous slightly piney finish a lingering bitterness is light and balances the malty front end. Loads of piney hops in the aftertaste, not much of the fruitiness in the front that I liked so much in the nose. Thoroughly enjoyable, but lacking a bit of balance that some maturity might give it.

22 oz bomber courtesy of Todd. Pours a cloudy orange vistilite with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of fresh orange citrus, rye, bitter hops and bread malts. Taste of fresh orange citrus, grapefruit, bitter hops and rye bread. Another gem from 3 FFFs.

Bottle pour from alexsdad. Orange,amber in color. Lots of citrus hop on the nose. Initial grapefruit hop flavor with some spiciness from the rye. Nice long bitterness.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bomber shared with friends. Big ole stickin hops in this bad boy. Right up in your face from the second you crack open the bottle. Nice floral hints with just a tad bit of citrus/grapefruit. Very enjoyable.

StefanSD (2416) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2013
650 ml bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks Rebekah. Pours a cloudy orange-ish color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is medium in strength vegetables and cat piss. Cant say that I really dug the aroma too much. The taste, unlike the aroma, is a masterpiece--I get rye grains, apricots, melons, mild spices, oranges and perhaps some sweetened grapefruit. The palate is full and silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long with lingering spicy hops. Overall: Decent DIPA, a bit like Alpine Nelson on steroids.

rubbishystuff (2404) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 This was really quite good. Big hops, piney and citrus, enough malty to back it up. Dry finish and spicy taste and finish from the rye. Serving: Bottle

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 21, 2012
22oz bottle from a BA trader. Cloudy amber/orange with a thick, off white head. Aroma of citrus, bubble gum, flowers and caramel. Flavor is bitter hops, sweet caramel malt and some spicy rye. Medium body with a thick mouth feel. Really great beer, the rye adds a touch of spice and a really nice mouth feel.

arkurzynski (2342) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Deep golden color. Great hop presence in the nose with light tropical fruit, pungent grapefruit, and soft pine. Malt not to be outdone with a pronounced rye spice, caramel malt, and sweet honey biscuits. Flavor is solid grapefruit, citrus, mango with matching rye malt spice and caramel malt. Great palate that is sticky and thick, but yet, easy to drink. I like that the rye characteristics are fairly pronounced and not just an afterthought. A very solid brew.

portableparty (2307) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
bottle from arkurzynski. Pours unclear orange with a frothy white head that dissipates to a soapy film and collar. Aroma is bright grapefruit pine and subtle melon and bread/malt. Taste bitter rye bread resinous pine grapefruit some spruce and rind. Palate is medium and finishes chalky dry. This is what I was in the mood for a good bitter IIPA. Thanks Adam!

Bomber shared. Pours an orange color with off soft white head with nice lacing. The aroma is like sticking your face in a pine tree and inhaling very slowly. But thats not the only aroma. You get some grapefruit mix with other tropical fruits. The first taste was a subtle ness of bold hops and rye. Funny the aroma and flavor come across in two different ways. Both very good. The rye comes across the middle of the tongue. ThEn i spilled my glass. DAMN.
