T - Bitterness is first with a slow rye taste after followed by some nectar taste
M - This feels lighter than normal light for an ipa

Truly ruthless this beer needs to mellow out a little for me to enjoy it. I am all for complex beers with many different ingredient lending themselves to a well put together final product, but this beer is a bit too much. Pours Beautifully with a nice lasting two finger head. The aroma is very strong, smelling of pine and rye. The flavor is surprisingly potent for an amber beer, it would seem more suited to a darker beer. All in all this beer is like pouring half a bottle of cumin on your taco, Cumin is great but don't over do it.
