22oz bottle sent to me by rmaste. Thanks!
A: Pours a slightly murky straw-gold color with a fine white head.
S: Nelson sauvin hops shining brightly in the nose. Dense tropical fruits (papaya, mango, overripe pineapple), lemony and a bit catty, light earthiness from the rye. Very nice.
T: Moderately sweet hop taste establishes itself first with some some pineapple and grapefruit and pine notes. Malt profile is clean and light, lending some mild breadiness, a bit of vanilla, some slightly spicy rye. Very restrained bitterness.
M: Light-bodied with active carbonation, creamy feel. Has some heft to it.
O: Fantastic rye IPA with some nice complexity from the Sauvin hops.

A: Pours very yellow with a slight golden hue to it, was quite surprised with the color of this IPA, it looks more like a blonde ale, but it still looks good.
S: Tropical fruits, spice, pine, bitterness, and a hint of pineapple and sweet malts, absolutely amazing smell to this beer!
T: Blown away in this category! In the beginning you get a wonderful blend of spice and pine, which transitions to an amazing blend of spice and tropical fruits, and then finishes with spice, tropical fruits, pine, pineapple, and some bitterness. Every flavor in this beer is so perfectly balanced and you get so much of every flavor, and this beer tastes truly incredible!
M: Perfect execution here, crisp, light refreshing, leaves your mouth a little dry which leaves you craving it more and more!
O: This is an incredible beer, easily hits number 2 on my top IPA’s list! You have to try this beer!
