12oz bottle poured into a Stella chalice glass.
AP: Has a hazy dark gold and orange colour with a 3/4" fluffy white head that dissipates down to 1/4". Little trickles of bubbles still floating up in an attempt to reinforce the head.
AR: Biscuit and cereal grains with pine and grapefruit up front with pineapple sneaking in the back door. Perhaps a little orange and tangerine in the background as well.
T: This is a juicy IPA, wet and sticky hops. Very very nice. The biscuit and cereal malt mixes nicely with the hops throughout with a bit of caramel thrown in. The hops taste as they smell in the nose, but with the grapefruit and pine rather dominant. Nice even bitterness on the finish along with some rye notes.
M: Rather crisp and well carbonated, does dry off a bit towards the end but not totally as the lushness of this beer is just top drawer.
OV: A very tasty and nicely done IPA. Juicy fruity sticky hops balanced by good malt, just the right amount of bitterness and dryness to finish. Well done effort by Great Lakes.

Notes from phone, reviewed May 29, 2014. 12 ounce bottle with a 6/22/14 "enjoy by" date. A darker gold, slightly hazy beer pours into a shaker pint with a finger of frothy off-white head. Good retention and thick lacing. Lighter in color than many IPAs, but very attractive.
Bright, citrus hops in the aroma, but not too juicy. Grapefruit, orange peel, and lemon zest. Spiciness from both hops and the rye, which is very apparent as well. Caramel and biscuity malts bring it back down to earth.
Rye spice and citrus hops are dominant. Modest amount of bittering hops with a silghtly sweet finish from the non-rye malts. Very well balanced overall.
Medium=bodied with moderate carbonation. Clean, semi-dry mouthfeel that doesn't make much of a lasting impression, which is a good thing.
Well balanced, drinkable, and pleasant. Definitely an above-average IPA, but maybe not world-class. Overall, this is a very solid beer just like everything else from GLBC, and I'd definitely drink it again.
