Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a moderate haze and a strong effervescence. Head is three fingers of frothy ivory foam with a hint of orange. Looks great!

Smell: strongly lemony and slightly floral hop aroma. With the alcohol thrown in the works, it smells a little like floor wax ... but in a good way.

Taste: very bitter and herbal hops right up front, slowly fading into the more lemony element. Not bad, if, again, a little floor-waxy.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body but with a pretty good carbonation. Creaminess is a bit evanescent, but it's decent enough.

Overall: this beer is not terrible, but it just doesn't grab me.

Awesome beer. Great citrus smell. Flavor is fresh citrus, caramel, pine, and light rye. One of the better ipas I have had in a while. Will look to pick this one up again.

A: golden copper, slightly hazy apperance, persistant off white head. some hop particle floaties in the bottom

S: Moderate strength grapefruit and tangerine hop aroma with evergreen and herbal notes slightly less dominant. Spicey rye character at medium level with mild toast and caramel.

T: Moderate grapefruit and pine bitterness thats got a rougher character (fitting in the beer though). More developed pine and dank evergreen like flavors evolve into a medium level of rye spiceiness, toast and mild biscuit character - similar to the aroma - that comes off mildy sweet. The finish is crisp and has a refreshing last burst of pine that lingers on the pallet.

M: Medium body with medium-moderate carbonation. The rye adds the impression of more body I think. Tiny bit of alcohol warmth

O: A very fitting name for this beer. Drinking it you can't help but bring up images of deep woods with snow covered evergreens and burly axe weilding lumber jacks. A good beer overall at a good price - not mind blowing but thats now what its trying to be. Cheers!

First Mississippi beer! 12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper color. The head is two fingers high, and slightly off-white in shade. It has both good retention and a nicely dense texture, and also leaves behind a nice amount of lacing. (4)

Smell: It has that intense grapefruit typical of a good DIPA. While that's usually enough, this beer also injects a subtle kiss of rye throughout. The rye doesn't dominate, but neither does it completely hide like a shrinking violet. I'm also picking up faint estery touches and a crackery (not caramely!) malt backbone. It's not the freshest bottle, so I'm impressed with its mild complexity. (3.5)

Taste: The initial flavor is bitter grapefruit, blending with touches of orange peel and pine. Rye notes appear around the mid-taste; just like the nose indicated, it's a subtle characteristic that adds to the experience instead of detracting. At times, I'd call the finish faintly juicy, and that's a great thing. The back end also reveals some more general malt notes (caramel, toffee). Its level of grapefruity bitterness is just right - not too pungent, nor too timid. (3.75)

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and fairly sweet, typical of a DIPA. However, it has enough crispness and bitterness to go down fairly easily. The carbonation is slightly masked by the sweetish body. (3.5)

Overall: It's not quite a top-flight DIPA, but it's still a very good one. It has a reasonable depth to it that quite a few in the style lack. Aside from the sweetness being a bit too much (always a problem in most big rye-laden IPAs in my opinion), I can't really think of anything wrong with this. Certainly, I'd drink it again. (3.5)

3.64/5: Very good by DIPA standards, utterly miraculous by Mississippi standards
