3.79/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a chalice.

A: Clear, brassy golden color with over one finger of off-white foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.

S: Hop-forward but not overpowering, with obvious grapefruit citrus, pine, and savory spice. Clean lines make for mild qualities, although they make a fairly tight and cohesive package.

T: Begins barely off-dry, with dense floral and berry hops aromatics and bright carbonic acidity. Grain is more evident in the middle, distinctly rye-like, peppery-sharp and drying on the palate. Pepper and berry flavors extend into the finish where restrained bitterness does not linger long.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly resinous on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This IPA enjoins archetypal qualities with an experimental ingredient to good results. It is molded in the new West Coast form, with less back-end bitterness a la Alpine IPAs. Balance is maintained in a way that does not lead one to think that the brewer has a revolutionary agenda when it comes to dry-hopping, but it is tasty nonetheless.

3.68/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Tasted On: 04-15-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Received from a friend

A: Pours a clear copper color and has 3 fingers of off-white head. Head retention is very good and it has a nice amount of lacing.

S: Smells feature floral hops and spices -- not sure if that's maybe from the yeast or perhaps the poppy seeds it says are added? Either way it makes for a pleasant aroma.

T: Taste starts out very hoppy and bitter. The spiciness noted in the nose is also present in the taste and gives it a character as a rye beer. As the beer warms up a bit I also taste some breadiness from the malts.

M: Crisp and clean mouthfeel, with a finish of bitterness and spiciness; quite dry as well.

O: A very interesting IPA. If this was in my market, I doubt I'd choose it over other IPAs but it's a good beer nonetheless...

Thank you Craig for the try!
