12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Awesome appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, mango, melon, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, spicy rye, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, mango, melon, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, spicy rye, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, mango, melon, papaya, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, spicy rye, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth and moderately sticky/creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding rye IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Hops are up front, the rye and hops are flavorful and not as bitter as rye often makes a brew. The malt makes it very smooth. Great mouth feel. Very, very good overall.

A - Pours a dark ruby red with an off-white foamy head. The head lingers leaving heavy soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is floral hops, spicy rye, and citrus.

T - The taste follows the aroma with lots of orange and grapefruit upfront. The rye and piney hops show midpalate. There is a nice sweet malt backbone holding everything together.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

O - This was an awesome beer. The flavors are nicely balanced making this an extremely drinkable Rye IPA.

Keeping it simple, the hops come through masterfully in smell and taste. The malt complements the entire experience. Highly recommend to anyone who has the opportunity to try.
