3.7/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- pours golden-orange, slightly hazy with a small creamy white head that has great retention and some solid lacing down the entire glass

S- citrus zest, orange juice, grassy, earthy, sweet bready malt and a spicy rye kick at the end

T- orange citrus hop with some earthy, almost vegital notes mid-palate, herbal and grainy, lemony citrus linger on the the finish with some spicy grainy rye

M- medium body, medium-high carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish

O- not as hoppy as one would expect from an IPA, but enjoyable nonetheless. The rye copmpliments nicely without overpowering.

3.35/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle with a drink by 7.15.14 date on the side. Pretty sure this was one of the last barrels brewed as Sweetwater announced its retirement a few months back

A - Bronze with some clarity, 1 finger of head and sticky lace left on the glass.

S - Rye, spices and orange spices. Bitter hops

T - Bitter hops and orange zest. Lots of Rye. Its not really working for me...

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated. Average...

O - Points for being a different type of IPA, but not nearly as good as their classic IPA.

3.51/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, amber-copper coloring with a thin, filmy, sparse, white surface coat of head. Aromas of toasted grain, bitter and resinous hops, bitter rye grain bill, citrus highlights, and roasted notes. Flavors are tangy sweet and bitter blended together. A forward blast of grapefruit, pineapple, and apricot, with a backbone of toasted grains and resinous hops. The bitterness is well balanced by the tropical fruit profiles. Light, effervesced body, which ends up as a crisp, almost sharp finish. The aftertaste is more of the tropical fruit than anything. Interesting brew. Light and fruity, which may be good for those just trying their hands in the rye field of beers.
