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!

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.
