3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle sampled at the beach. Clear amber poor with ring of near white head. Smells and tastes extremely of rye. Distinct aroma of forestry hops and significant bitterness pervade the palate. Spicy sweetness from the rye. Didn’t really like it. But it was good for what it was I suppose

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours a medium amber. Quite a bit of sediment clouded it up on the pour. Motley maly aroma, a bit of hop bite. Fairly bitter and the hop flavors were muted and seemed not fresh. MOstly greassy and woody. Not great

It poured a cloudy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pine and some grapefruit. It had a medium mouthfeel with some pine hops and a nice lingering bitter finish. A good IPA.
