look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a cloudy amber with a fair amount of particulate in it. A good helping of a tight knit one finger head.

S - Citrus and some of that farmhouse funk dominate for me. You can also detect hops and spicy rye lingering.

T - Has a bready quality to it. Rye & pine hops up front and finishes with a funky tartness.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes slightly wet.

O - I respect the merging of these 2 styles. Not sure my tastebuds are used to them yet. Very interesting to drink as the rye, hops and yeast set this beer apart.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a dirty orange-brown to amber color with chunky thick off-white head that lingers forever in tulip. Lots of lacing.

Smell is funky belgian-esque cross with a typical IPA. Lots of spice and ripe fruit. Cinnamon and clove presence. Pine and citrus comes through as it warms, but really overpowered with the peppery spices.

Taste is sweet throughout. Not a lot of hop character except in the late finish. Bitterness persists in the aftertaste. Good, but not as complex as I expected from the smell.

Mouthfeel is a little watery. Lots of carbonation.

Overall this is interesting. Smell is awesome and strange for an IPA. Taste and mouthfeel were good, but not what I expected.
