A: This poured a clear dark gold with no head.
S: It smelled like floral and spicy hops and rye.
T: It tasted like cooper and floral hops with spicy rye. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was slightly thick with little a little carbonation. Oily body.
D: This had a nicely balanced scent and taste, with decent body. Solid brew, even if not super unique or exiting.

Drinking this right now for the first time on draught at a bar in Baltimore. This is absolutely delicious. As a self-described hop head I'd begun to wonder whether anything under 8% would satisfy my admittedly overwrought taste buds. But at "only" 6.5% this delivers loads of flavor. I'd love to regale you with all the flavor nuances but I'll leave that to the folks who can actually wax poetic about that stuff. All I know is that this is an exceptional IPA that delivers loads of wonderful hop flavor. Love it!

First try of a rye beer. I've had better IPA's from OC in the past. Taste wasnt bad, the rye goes quick into a dry ipa aftertaste so you don't get the full flavor of some of the best out there

LOOK: Poured a Clear Golden Color with a 3/4 inch Foamy White Head that started off the pour....but it didn't last very long, Initially the Lacing was above average but it dissipated quickly.....in a Nut-Shell...It looked GREAT at first but within little to no time it looked like it could have been a Flat Keg Beer :(

SMELL: Full of Barley Malt Aromas and Crisp Fresh Quality Hops. Citrus Scents are also very evident.

TASTE: Enjoyed Fresh Hoppy Taste but I would have enjoyed a bit more of the mild bitterness that disappeared soon after the swallow.

FEEL: Crisp and Refreshing Mouth-Feel with Excellent Carbonation Balance.....I was expecting more of a lingering dryness after swallow then what it ultimately delivered.

OVERALL: Good, Solid IPA that in my opinion could have been GREAT if the "LOOK" lasted longer AND the dry after-taste had been a bit more Prominent....All-In-All a QUALITY IPA that I WOULD Recommend and Purchase Again.

Good beer, I like what the rye does to the flavor and mouthfeel, nice dryness. Only qualm was the appearance of noticeable "floaters" or proteins in suspension. Couldn't realy notice their impact on flavor or mouthfeel etc so otherwise, excellent.
