This IPA is a nice dark gold color with reddish brown hues, plenty of carbonation in its body and a light fluffy head accompanied by some thick lacing. The aroma is a bit light, but the hops do come through along with some grains and grassy smells. There are hints of grapefruit too. The bitterness hits your first and then mellows out into a nice semi sweet flavor, the hops a re well represented but not overpowering. The aftertaste is spot on for an IPA, the alcohol is present but not offensive. Over all I thought this a really good IPA.

Poured this American IPA from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a clear copper color, produced a very nice off white head, great retention and it left a very nice amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted of spicy rye and piney hops. Medium in body, the foundation of this ale consisted of spicy rye and a decent amount of earthy hops. Overall the balance is a bit off, more spicy rye then bitter hops but a decent example of the style.
