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.

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.

A: Nice bright copper. Clear. Okay carbonation, but didn't get much head out of it.

S: A little malt. Light spice. Bright floral hops.

T: Mild to medium caramel and grain flavor here which gives way to a spiciness of caraway and fennel seed. Big bright juicy hops profile takes over. Interesting mix of hops. High in acids but low in dry bittering. The hops are not what I'm used to, instead of huge green chlorophyll and fresh grass notes the flavors are more subdued and floral like cherry blossom and fescue.

M: Good body, not too thin not too light. Could have gone for a touch more carbonation to really drive home and finish on the pallet.

O: This is why I like sampling the local beers when I travel. Being from Oregon, I usually only find one type of pale, and this one is totally different. Clearly attributed to the brewer using different hops then the same three varieties you find out west. Overall, not phenomenal, but I'm apply to branch out and try something new.
