look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Pours murky beautiful orange with a medium large off-white airy, but still a bit compact head that leaves rather nice lacings.

S: American bitter but even more floral hops brings grapefruits and oranges and in the back pine. Dryness from the rye, kind of bready.

T: Rich floral hops gives this a tropical-fruit-salad-vibe - really nice; pineapple, grapefruits, ripe oranges, peaches. Bitter hops together with the bready rye balances and makes this pretty awesome.

M: Long bitter tropical-fruity aftertaste. Body is medium but bone-dry. Carbonation is held to a very low level.

O: This is a fantastic example of floral hops galore, balanced by rye and bitter hops.

The beer is hazy copper amber, has a bubbly off-white head, leaving much lacing and has good curtains.

Smelling mainly sweet fructose citric, grape-fruit, lemon, but also hoppy pine resin nuances. And some cheese.

Starting sweet toffee and rye bread, grape-fruit peel, pine needle tea.

Medium low carbonation, oily and slick, a big body, a warm dry finish.

Extremely hoppy but not extremely bitter. A very balanced and good American IPA (on the border of DIPA), not as sweet as most. That is good in my book.

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

A - golden and hazy with a good head which dissipates slowly leaving some sticky lacing

S - lots of rye, some piney hops and sweet malts

T - starts with some sweet rye, goes into some pine and grassy notes ending with great citrus bitterness

M - smooth and goes down well hiding the percentage but finishes very dry

A: The beer is hazy dark yellow in color and has some fine particulates floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a film of bubbles on the surface, a patch of bubbles in the center, a thin collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with notes of citrusy hops.
T: The taste starts out with initial flavors of citrusy hops, which are quickly followed by notes of caramel malts. Spicy rye begins to kick in towards the back of the taste and lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the taste of this beer to have a really nice balance between the caramel malts, citrusy hops, and spicy rye. Each of these seemed to be blended in perfect proportions.
