look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A: The beer poured hazy amber orange into a thin pint glass.
S: Spicy rye on the nose light citrus flavor. Not tasting the citra hops. They are expensive, so brewer may have used more less expensive hops.
T: The malt is a bit overwhelming for this being a DIPA. Was really hoping for a better taste then what I've been told of this beer.
M: medium body. Pretty basic.
O: I was let down. Thought this would be more exciting. There are a lot better beers that cost the same. If the price was lower I'd feel better about buying this beer again.

Poured into an imperial nonic a slightly hazed lighter amber shade with a 1/2 finger white head atop.Aromas of big caramel and some booze with a big shot of citric and resiny hops,there is a faint lactic rye note but the hops overpower that.Flavors are pretty sweet at first with caramel notes with a resiny and sharp grapefruit rind-like hoppiness in the finish,again the rye is there but subdued.Not bad,it wasn't overly sweet and alcoholic like alot of the style.A pretty good NC. DIPA with some rye thrown in.

8 day old bottle

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: Some light grapefruit and pineapple notes with caramel malts up front. The finish is a little more earthy and piney.

T: Caramel malts here as well with pineapple, grapefruit, and citrus rind. The finish is sweet, lightly bitter, and a bit more earthy.

M: Medium body with low carbonation, this beer is oily slick.

O: A solid beer overall, and certainly drinkable, but lacks pungency from the hops. Everything is just a little muted. The beer also needs more carbonation.

On-tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with delicate lacing covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops and spicy rye are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but the use of wheat malts seems to accentuate the bitterness from the hops and spiciness from the rye.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little heavy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The malts lend some smoothness.
O: I found this to be an enjoyable hybrid version of an IPA and a rye beer because you can really smell and taste both the citrusy hops and spicy rye. It's interesting to try one but I couldn't see myself having more than one of these in a single sitting.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is very hop forward and a little sticky - the floral and pine elements really dominate the smell. Taste is decently bitter, but has just enough balance to it so that you’re not overwhelmed. Tasty drink.

Bottled Feb 25, 2014. Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, pale, copper-blonde coloring with slow, minimal carbonation throughout the body and a filmy, loose, white surface coating of head. Aromas of citrus and toasted grain initially, with a healthy dose of grapefruit, followed by subtle piney and resinous notes in the backbone. Pretty well balanced and inviting nose. Flavors are grapefruit and orange forward, with hints of tart along with the sweetness, followed by a pineapple/tropical twist, all on a smooth, toasted grain backbone. There is an underlying bitterness, very subtle, from the wheat notes, that helps to keep all the fruity sweet characteristics in check a bit. Pineapple and passionfruit carry the baton into the aftertaste, where they are balanced out by a very subtle hops profile of pine and cedar. Mellow, leaving this one a better representation of the fruitier side of hops. Smooth, mid-bodied throughout, with a crisp edge and clean, dry finish. Subtle bitter linger after each sip, giving just a jab of hops character once again. Different take on the style, but tasty and refreshing.
