look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours a hazy, deep golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice, balanced scent that boasts of pale and rye malts; sweet with a touch of spiciness. The hop character is mild, yet the citrus character is noticeable. The taste is awesome! It has a stiff hop bitterness up front along with a solid malt base that adds depth and a mild spicy character. It's smooth and easy drinking, yet high enough in abv that you need only a few. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is a very good rye IPA. It's bold enough to be interesting, yet drinkable to someone who's new to the style.

12oz bottle into a pint glass over the weekend. Best by 7/14/14, so just under the wire.

Looking good, darker yellow coloring, small white head, very good carbonation with m oderate lacing.

Nothing at all on the nose, except a faint sweetness. No spice or rye.

Upon sampling, it seems that the rye bit might have diminished due to being toward the end of it's shelf life. Having said that, it was very smooth, slightly sweet, with a very faint spiciness that coats the tongue.

Medium and soft on the tongue.

Overall, an enjoyable drink. Would be interesting to compare with a bottle fressh of the line, but don't shy away from one close to or just over it's BB date. Still an enjoyable beer.
