Reviewed on 6/19/2010. On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweat, grassy hops, and citrus. Flavor of hop oils, sweat, and lots of sweet malt and residual sugars. It was very sweet after awhile and some acetone notes came out as well. Hmm, just didn't like this one, much too sweet for me.

Acquired via trade
Clear gold with a creamy near-white head. Proper visible carbonation. Dots and irregular lines of lace left down the glass.
Leafy hop character in the aroma, along with some alcohol bite, and a bit of a banana character.
The flavor is similar to the aroma. Loads of hop bitterness, a bit of an alcohol bite, banana character, a bit of grapefruit, and malt and biscuit sweetness.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Good, but I expected more. San Diego IPAs have simply spoiled me. A long time want crossed off my list, however!

a: This was a deep, chestnut brown, clear for the most part. I was expecting something lighter in color because of the rice. It was served to me with a thin soapy head.
s: Very appealing balance between sweet elements of caramel and molasses; and bitter, leafy, mildly citric hops.
t: Not nearly as well balanced here. Pleasantly sweet up front, tasting of caramel. The finish is quite harsh though. Lots of characterless bitterness and too much heat.
m: Chewy and gently carbonated, very nice.
d: Not at all what I expected. One of the darkest DIPAs I've ever tried and it was made with rice? I'm not sure what affect the rice had on this one. Regardless, it just wasn't for me.

Draft in a glass at Slows BBQ.
A nice golden hue to the drink, not too opaque, slightly watery yet classy looking.
Not too much I can smell besides hops.
Upon drinking a sharp taste of hops jumps right into the playing field with a small amount of malt before quickly dropping off. I prefer a more full-bodied taste to my beer and this ends too quick to get much flavor.
The rice gives a nice crisp finish though and that is where this beer stands out. No hippy bitterness left on your tongue. The rice gives it a crisp end, refreshing in the same manner as a Sprite would. This is a great thing and a downfall. For the high price of the drink, it can be sipped away quickly. This is a great starter beer and is almost too sippable.

Pours a nice light gold good whispy head.
Smell is a nice hope bite with a slight hint of booze.
Taste is hoppy a bit fruity a bit harsh
Mouthfeel is medium but lighter with the rice
Overall not bad but not something is rave or seek out but won't turn it down

Had a 9 oz. pour at the Stag's Head in Midtown. I enjoyed the lighter body and appreciated the mild rice taste (like a light toast or rice cake). However, the hops character didn't stand out in a crowded DIPA field. There's a balanced grapefruit and pine punch, which while tasty, doesn't have any distinct, stand-out notes. It's more drinkable for the style, but there's are better options for hop heads.

Thanks to Alex for picking this up for me; a growler into a Bells tulip...Pours a dark peach that is pretty clear, looks watery. Off white head with good carbonation for a week old growler, good lacing...The aroma is really boozy, distractingly so. Light grass show off some hops but after the alcohol I get tons of rye, this really comes off to me as rye not rice ipa...The taste is very similar to the aroma, way to much rye comes through to make this a really enjoyable ipa to me. A typically boozy Kuhnhenn ipa. Not there best, but passable to drink.
