16 ounce can poured into a tulip glass

A: Pours a hazy copper orange with a bright white head, low carbonation, lots of lacing, decent retention on a creamy, soapy looking head, looks pretty good, looks unfiltered.

A: Very aromatic, lots of grapefruit peel, touch of orange sweetness, hint of pine and resin, garlic funk, some spice, some malt, this smells really good, lots going on.

T: Hit of grapefruit peel/rind, citrus, not as sweet as the nose, hint of pine and resin, moderate amount of bitterness, some rye, some malt sweetness, big lingering flavor of grapefruit peel dryness, very drinkable, balanced, very tasty.

M: Full bodied creamy, smooth, dry finish.

O: I like a good rye IPA and this falls into that category, citrus, hint of resin, moderate amount of bitterness, rye, a balanced IPA, very grapefruit forward. Very enjoyable. The can says 12/8/15, and from the taste I think I scored a really fresh can.

Thanks to Orthodoxkardia for this beer.

16oz Tall Boy pours a murky orange with a 1/4 inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is honey and rye with some light floral hops. Sweet and spicy. The taste is more of the sweet malts and honey as well as some spicy rye. Some orange and lemon zest. Finishes with more of the spicy rye with some floral hops. Lightly carbonated with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Very drinkable with not much of an alcohol presence. Overall, pretty decent Rye IPA.

On-tap at Claremont Craft Ales

The pour is a hazed amber color with an off-white head. Some definite butter on the nose followed by citrus peel, mild pine, and bread. Additional sweetness of toffee and caramel on the aroma. A halfway decent amount of grapefruit, too. The flavor is also buttery. Decent orange and grapefruit hops, moderate bitterness from some pine notes as well. There is a fair amount of sweetness of caramel and toffee. The beer is really just ruined by the diacetyl.
