A nice American IPA, a bit too heavy on the cascade for my taste. That white grapefruit rind character makes for a pleasant nose, but when that type of bitterness starts to obscure other aspects of the beer, it gets a bit unbalanced. There is a nice estery quality that can be discerned past the grapefruit that has floral and slight bubble gum character. The finish is on the dry side with a bitterness that seems to be more of a malt character than a hop character (sort of what you might expect from the addition of rye).

A- A hazy, luminescent orange liquid with a thick and craggy bone white head that has amazing retention. Perfect for the style.

S- Orange rind, flowers, pine, mint, and caramel. Pretty well rounded and intriguing.

T- Orange rind, pine, flowers, and caramel. A little more subtle than the aroma implied.

M- A creamy, slightly oily body. Seems a touch undercarbonated.

O- A very solid IPA that is a bit on the mellow side but drinks really nicely.
