This beautifully complex, boldly hopped, amber-colored IPA uses rye malt to give the beer a subtle spiciness. It’s bittered with Bravo and Nugget hops before heading to the hop back packed with whole flower Chinook. Finally, we bomb it with Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, and Columbus, creating a pungent ale with intense notes of citrus and pine.

Nice amber hue, rye, pine, resin and slight hops and flowers on nose. Nice mouthfeel, but I feel like the rye really overpowers the generous amount of hopping.

Pours a clear dark copper with generous lacing and ample carbonation. Smells spicy from the rye with a healthy dose of pine & citrus hops. Some sweet aromas persist, either from the malts or resinous qualities from the hops. Tastes hoppy & spicy throughout, like the aroma. A lingering bitterness is evident. Feels medium bodied and drinkable. Some warming alcohols, but a beer I could have a few pints of anytime.

Pours a clear amber body with soda-like head with decent retention. A wet leafy aroma with toffee and baking bread undertones, plus a bit of orange peel is good but rather subdued. The taste is remarkably well balanced. Starts off with a citrusy bitterness before sweeter orange notes and some dark caramel notes come through on the middle, and then harmonizing together for a rhapsodic finish. Simple flavors but well pronounced and ultimately working well together. I like this beer.

12oz bottle into a pint glass over the weekend. Bottled on 12/18/13, so 7 months along. Might be tad older than would be preferred.

Looks good though. Yellow coloring with thin white head and good lacing. not much carbonation.

Getting a faint sweetness and spiciness on the nose.

Upon a hearty gulp, the taste is exactly what you get from the nose, a mild sweetness, with a mixed in spice palate. No hop bite detected, and the rye is very mild, both could be due to age.

The finish however, is a bit of a let down. The mouth itself is medium, but the finish leaves a very sour aftertaste.

Overall, marked it a a bit lower than if the finish would have been clean.
