Pours a hazy orange with hints of red. Thick foamy white head. The smell is the strongest part. Farmhouse funk. Citrus. Grass. Hops. Yeast. Grass. The taste follows suit. Spicy citrus hops and rye bitterness. Grassy, yeasty hoppy goodness. Labeled as a farmhouse ipa and it fits this description perfectly. The combination of hops and farmhouse flavors compliment nicely.
As usual, JK knocks it out of the park yet again. A very solid hybrid that is reasonably priced.

Review from old notes - non-farmhouse version. 750 mL pours a hazed copper color with a massive cap of light tan head. Retention and lacing both impressive, though I suspect the beer is a bit overcarbonated.
Alot of various hop aromas going on here - citrusy lemons, grapefruit and pine sap. Bready rye is detectable along with some caramel and light alcohol. Main show is the hops, as it should be..
Quite tasty...big and bright hops start things off flowery and citric. Malts are light and biscuity, staying in the background for the most part. Yeast leans bready but the beer is much cleaner than the farmhouse version. Bittering hops on the back end are nice and crisp. Mouthfeel is a touch on the thin side, but thats a minor complaint. Need this in 6-packs please...too good not to gulp. It is a bit overcarbonated and gets pretty dry after awhile. Could use some minor tweaking but shows some promise.

From my tasting notes: I had the Wytchmaker in a 750 ml bottle that was a bit over carbonated, but was still in excellent condition. It poured a golden amber with a healthy head that persisted for the entire tasting. This rye IPA had a creamy mouthfeel with good hop bitterness balanced by the rye malts. This bottle was with their older English ale yeast, so it will be interesting to try it with their newer farmhouse yeast to see the differences. Again this is a great IPA.
