Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Modern Times pint glass
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.89
Purchased: Dec. 9, 2014
Consumed: Dec. 11, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel, orange, amber, semi-clear color with four fingers of frothy, white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass to the top. Evened, layered, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Thick retention all the way down. (Sight - 4.13)

Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops up front. Got floral, Centennial, Citra, rye and Cascade. Light grapefruit, lime zest, pineapple, caramel, tropical and tangerine wheat. (Smell - 4.13)

Tasted earthy rye hops, caramel, metallic notes, light bitter grapefruit, lime zest, pine, Cascade hops, boozy rubbing alcohol and faint floral hops. (Taste - 3.50)

Medium body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.38)

This beer was OK for a rye beer, but nothing extraordinary. I had high hopes after the look and smell, but it disappointed from there. (Overall - 3.50)

Pours a clear copper color with a soapy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of rye and some citrus hops.

Tastes of the rye with a solid hop addition. Rye malt leads off with some spicy notes. This gives way to some breast and grainy sweet notes. Hops add in a bit of pine and citrus along with plenty of bitterness. Finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is solid, but nothing special.

12oz can at fridge temp poured into a tulip. If there is a canned on or best by date, I can't find it.

Pours slightly hazy with a medium light tan head that fades very slowly, lots of carbonation. Smell is nice -- refreshing pine, slight floral, a little rye spice.

Taste is a little hollow, watery. Nice flavors -- lots of rye spice, very slow nondescript bitter finish, mild orangey sweetness. But, just not integrated well.

Mouthfeel is light, dry. Overall, not terribly impressed, but not sad about the beer either.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Some spotted lacing and decent head retention. Very clear and rust color.

Nose: Lacking anything noticeable. Perhaps some cherry, orange, and kiwi. Pine and resin. You have to hunt for it.

Taste: Orange and hops. A nice interplay between dry and syrupy. Not too much of either.

Notes: A totally run of the mill IPA. It does a perfect job of being perfectly "normal". That is what makes it boring.

Pour is a heavily hazed copper with a red hue and a right tan head. Nose has a strong rye spice to it, malt up front, caramel and grain. Hops are citrusy with a bit of pine and slightly stale. Taste is a bit more fresh, not as spicy or malt forward. Much more balanced, citrusy and piney with a light hop resin. Finish is where the rye spice comes in with a light bitterness and mildly carbonated medium body.

22oz bottle clumsily poured into pint glass. Huge amber head tops hazy orange brew. Hello, lacing. Ample aroma of unmalted rye and citrusy hops. Flavor is bold and dry with a solid rye kick. Mouthfeel is a little on the syrupy side, and the finish is not the most crisp. Still this beer is a great example of why Rye and IPA is a killer combination.
