Appearance: Perfectly clear amber, with gorgeous, still, ivory head, and webby lacing evenly distributed all down the glass.

Aroma: Full, mellow tangerine/mandarin orange aroma, with hints of tropical fruit and nectarine. Some spicy, leafy, hop/rye aromas present as well.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Bready malts on the tongue, with sweet honey; candied tangerine; sharp, grassy/leafy hops; and dry, spicy rye. The finish consists of grassy hops; the aforementioned rye; and grapefruit rind. The rye contributes a dryer mouthfeel, and seems to cut the resiny hop bitterness; bridging the gap between them and the bready malts.

Final Word: An exquisitely balanced IPA, and one of my favorites! Seek it out on draft and you’ll be in heaven! I’ve had it several times out of the bottle and on draft and it never disappoints, always presenting the unique flavors of the hops and rye with a rich, full, balancing malt foundation. The hop flavor here is huge, but is countered throughout by the citrus and honey sweetness, as well as the bready malts, keeping it from being overwhelmingly bitter. If you have an aversion to hops, or haven’t tried many IPAs, this one will still probably be a little too challenging for you, but it is one of the best examples of a full flavored, hoppy, yet balanced beer around. It puts other IPAs to shame with its fullness of flavor, and dedication to balance. Don’t pass up an opportunity to have this brew, especially on tap!
