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.

Pours a clear, copper/gold color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, rye, sweet malt, alcohol, hint of yeast, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong rye, citrus hops, slight floral notes, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, refreshing, fruity, and noticeable rye.

Pours a orange, amberish color with a nice 2 finger head leaving good lacing on a 16oz pub glass.
Smell is a little weak but I pick up some hops and some malts.
Taste is really good. As the bite from the hops, mainly citrus, with some nice malts in there. I get a hint of something at the end, maybe honey, tastes a little like melon.
Mouthfeel is good with nice carbonation. It is a little watery after the first couple tastes.
Overall, a good IPA. Hops arent too overpowering and it is balanced really well with the malts. It has a nice flavor profile that I dont remember getting with most IPAs. Really like drinking this one.
