4.13/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Mostly clear organish yellow with a creamy off-white head that dissapates pretty quickly. Nice lacing.

Nice strong citrus/grapefruit aroma with sweet grainy malts. Pretty floral too, and really pops out of the glass in the aroma dept, nice. I think I might like a tad more complexity to that aroma, but I appreciate the strenght.

Similar to the taste, but the malts seem to come through a little more than the hops, which isn't as good in my book. The malts are pretty caramel foreward too, and not particularly complex. The hops are there too though, but are kind of basic in the citrusy dept. Pretty balanced, but not much of a hop showcase really.

Medium to light body with moderate carbonation. Pretty creamy and smooth, but with a good bite too. Kind of lingers around on the tongue for a while too, in a sort of chalky way.

Not bad, but pretty midde of the road, balanced IPA with no real spotlight on anything. I tend to prefer those that focus a little more on hop complexity, or at least a little more malt depth if the two are even. This is just kind of "meh".

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!

3.45/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Great smelling beer which jumped out at me as soon as I cracked the bottle open. Lots of carbonation on the pour. Color and smell of a typical IPA. Taste was disappointing at first and not as hop forward as the smell suggested. Not one of my favorites, but would be good for a food pairing with fish tacos or something. Very light tasting beer that I imagine accomplishes what Fig set out to do when crafting this beer. A good APA but enjoy drinking Figueroa's Hurricane Deck or Lizard's Mouth IPA more.
