A: Pours from a bomber bottle a hazed sunburst orange under a pillowy, 1.5-finger thick slightly off-white head which lingers long and yields clumps of lace.

N: Rye and grainy malts, bready, spice and slight honey/earthy notes.

T: Follows nose with malt forward and spicy rye, some faint citrus hops, ABV noticed.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Bitter and spicy malty finish.

O: Decent and straight forward, but not overwhelming. (443 characters)

Poured into a pint glass.

3.0 A: Nearly clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of foamy white head. Retention is about average and a few wisps of lacing are left.

3.5 S: Spicy earthy rye. Floral and citrusy hops with an emphasis on orange and grapefruit. Touch of caramel maltiness with a strong yeasty breadiness.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Spicy earthy rye. Floral and citrus hops per above. Moderate bitterness. Lots of yeasty bread.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and chewy.

3.25 D: Decent beer overall. No real problems, but doesn't stand out either. (621 characters)

22 oz. bomber poured into tulip glass.

A: Dark, opaque orange-ish brown, with a significant, thick foam head that never truly dissipates completely and leaves a ton of film.

S: Malty and fruity, with a grainy finish.

T: Lives up to its aroma -- malt is very forward, with citrus and rye hanging in the background (though still apparent).

M: Warm and thick, with mild carbonation.

O: The rye part of this beer doesn't necessarily come through a ton, but still an enjoyable IPA that's warm and pleasant to drink. (516 characters)
