4.1/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear copper color with a tight, white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of bright citrus and tropical fruits.

Tastes of the bright hops upfront followed by some malt sweetness. Hops lead off with grapefruit, pineapple, and melon with a touch of grass on the backend. Not particularly bitter. Hops blend into a little caramel sweetness along with toffee and toasted bread notes. Fairly balanced overall. I do pick up a bit of earthiness as the beer warms, which I assume is from the poppy seeds.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a quite good IPA and has me more interested in this brewery.

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!
