3.73/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a 7venth Sun snifter.

A: Deep copper and nearly clear, with a half-finger's worth of off-white head and moderate visible carbonation.

S: Caramel and bready malts, sweetness in moderation, a touch of toffee and some booze heat. Less resinous sticky hops, some grass and hints of caraway.

T: Malt sweetness (biscuity and caramel), rye spiciness, resin sappy hops, grassy hops, and finishes with lingering malt sweetness and tingly hop bitterness.

M: Medium body for style, average carbonation sensation. The alcohol heat is noticeable, but doesn't rise to the level of being a distraction.

O: Not a bad "Triple IPA" as these things go, but not a favorite of mine. The rye character isn't as prominent as I'd expect, and the hops actually play second fiddle to the huge malt bill. A recipe with promise, but one that I'd prefer to be tweaked.

3.2/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Undated bottle 2014 vintage at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma malted grain, no hops
Head large (5 cm), off white, creamy with rocks, very slowly diminishing to irregular layer at least 4 mm thick which blends with the lacing
Lacing very good; thick, wide rings with mostly small bubbles
Body medium orange, clear
Flavor very malty, moderately sweet; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no rye spicyness
Palate medium to full, oily, soft carbonation

An odd brew. This is supposed to be an IPA with a heavy rye backbone but hops are absent in both the aroma and taste. Since the bottled is undated, age could certainly be a factor.
