Pre-tasting: be careful of the caged cork- it actually works, unlike corked beers from other breweries (e.g Unibroue).
Unloosen the cage and the cork will come out easily - be sure to hold it with a dish towel and obviously point it away from your face and lights.

Beautiful light amber color with a 4F head which resolved itself to 2F which maintained itself.

Unsusual aroma: grapefruit, citrus with resin.- Sake style? The beer is brewed to be Sake-like, but I haven't tasted Sake.

Mouth feel- very pleasant and tangy.

The taste is citrus-spicy, although lighter than the aroma.

The finish is wonderfully dry.

Warming up: the beer is brewed with brown rice and millet- there is a rice whiskey ( or wine) quality to the beer- the rice and millet are more pronounced. The taste is more spicy with subtle citrus.

This is the most unusual IPA I have tasted. Like other beers from Element, the goods come through in the warming. There is an overall rice-grain taste and consistency to this beer, complemented with a citrus-spicy character. This brewery is definitely sailing in uncharted craft brew waters.
