look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a chill hazed light copper with a frothy cream head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.

Soft notes of citrus, resin, and bready malt form the initial aroma. There's a candy-like sweetness accompanying an anise and pine character, that later more closely resembles rye. Interesting.

Bready malt is present in full force, with more rye in the finish than I've had in many rye offerings. The citrus character beneath is muddled. Lemon and grapefruit pith seem to be accompanied by tropical fruit, with an earthy hop aftertaste.

Body is moderate to a touch full, with moderate carbonation and waking alcohol.

Good malt presence to carry a pretty varied hop character. The spicy rye bitterness is not overwhelming, but is a little more than I prefer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you shan8454 for this one in trade.

Appearance: Cloudy darker amber with a thin off white head. Some mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong pine bitter notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Rough, medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine with a very mild sweetness in the background.

Overall: Good IPA, glad I got to try this one out.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, copper-gold coloring with a steady flow of carbonation and a dense, low profile, clingy, coating white head that settles into a surface coating. Literally, this head coats the entire glass as you drink. Looks great. Aromas of tropical fruits forward, with mango and pineapple most notable, as well as a slightly spiced and roasted rye backbone blended with a subtle caramel backbone. Smells balanced and slightly heavy, which is always good. Flavors are sharp initially, with a blast of tart grapefruit forward, spicy and darkly bitter rye notes, subtle sweet caramel, and the rest of the tropical fruit cast coming forward towards the end of the palate. This one is beastly, but remains balanced and drinkable throughout. The body is robust, but kept light and effervesced from the steady carbonation. The aftertaste has more of the bitter rye and tropical sweetness, as well as some piney notes finally shining. Bitter and sweet linger to a slow, smooth finish. This is big, but it is a damn good beer!
