4.5/5 rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
22 oz from the Beer Junction in West Seattle poured into a pint glass.
A: pours a nice brown amber that is more brown at the top, more colorful towards the center-bottom. i got little head of the foam, probably due to poor pouring. medium cobweb lacing that appears quickly and leaves less hastily.
S: HOPS and RYE, obviously...liquorice, cinnamon, limey aroma.
T: caramel, almost sour mash vibe, hop heaven, the infused, unfiltered rye leaves a pumpernickel after taste.
M: staunch on-bringing yet mellow afters, alcohol not completely hidden by all the hops - seems more than 8.0%.
O: a damn good IPA (i.e. Hop Monster). the 18% rye mix seems to lend all compliments and no distractions to this unique California "specialty" ale.
Serving type: bottle
