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.

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.

Handsome amber color with a nice enough head in the pint shaker. On tap at Toma Sol in Hillcrest. Robust, hoppy aroma.
Warm and rich malty flavors. Fruity hops with a pleasant bite. Brewer says the hops include Simcoe. The rye adds that appealing scratchy tang that seems to go well with spicy hops. Just enough sweetness. Not overly bitter for all the hop flavor.
Altogether this has my vote for the most drinkable San Diego IPA of 2013. Great mouthful of aromatic hops with a spicy, grainy flavor. Just a touch more carbonation would have raised the stakes.
