A rye IPA brewed with all Simcoe and 25% rye.

Pours a hazy caramel red hue with a substantial off-white head. A good 3/4 inch head floats to the top using a mildly aggressive pour. The lacing is great...I like the way this beer looks.

I get a toffee laden grapefruit scent which is subdued. Some notes of pine and floral bouquet wants to come out but it is hidden. I think the aroma is the weak point of this beer.

Upfront, grapefruit and orange zest greet my palate. Immediately, a substantial rye and caramel malt backbone steps in to curb the citrus hit. Toward the backend, the citrus hop meld bitters the tongue with a piney citrus rind bitterness that lingers.

The non-aggressive carbonation helps coat my palate with an oily, buttery texture. The resulting feel is medium full with some drying in the end.

This is a solid drinker that satisfies the hop head without over stimulating the senses. I enjoy it and would buy again!

A - Pours a hazy burnt orange with a two finger fizzy white. The head recedes quickly leaving tones of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is grapefruit peel, orange, and caramel malts.

T - The flavor is grapefruit peel, orange peel, and caramel malts upfront. Piney resinous hops and the rye dominate midpalate through the finish. Lingering bitter finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel with a dry sticky finish.

O - A nice IPA. The flavors are balanced and sessionable. Worth checking out.
