look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

S: Grainy, slight caraway, grassy, some hop aromatics, some perceived sweetness. Little bit of a pear note.

L: Fairly clear amber orange, off-white head that dissipates.

T: Sweet, rye bread like malt with an undercurrent of stone fruit like hops. Very clean malt sweetness. Medium clean bitterness, quite smooth. Touch of alcohol bite. Finishes semi-sweet with lingering hops but fairly clean.

M: Medium full body, medium carbonation. Alcohol slightly noticeable.

Ok beer, love the rye component, but the hops were severely lacking for a DIPA.

A: Dark amber color with a decent white head forming on top. Carbonation is fairly active.

S: Pine and grapefruit rind hop aroma. A little alcohol aroma comes with warming.

T: Pine, rye spiciness, citrus peel, biscuity malt. Alcohol stays well hidden until the beer is nearly finished.

M: This has a little more body than your typical IPA. Minor syrupy slick feel towards the finish.

O: A very good rye IPA that rivals Founders Red's rye in my opinion.

Appearance is golden with brilliant clarity. Head settles quickly and leaves sparse lace. Nose is resinous wih heavy pine, earth, and rye spiceness. Taste is quite resinous like the nose with a fair amount of pine needles paired with bread, rye, and a bitter kick at the finish. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Overall, this was a pleasant surprise, very freh and hoppy.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Crystal clear amber with 1 finger of bone-white head. Decent retention and low-moderate carbonation.

Nose
Pineapple, pine, rye, caramel and candy sugar.

Taste
Fairly rye forward backed by pine, pineapple and hints of grapefruit. Caramel maltiness with notes of toffee and toasted bread. Rye and pine linger into the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth and oily

Overall
Showcases the rye well. Balanced, well-hopped and easy drinking.
