Complex with honey and rye being the dominant flavors. Very bitter. I like the way the rye is showcased, but have several others in the American IPA category that I would turn to first.

Pours a clear amber with a slowly fading beige head, good lacing. Aroma of rye, grains, some malt. Taste is rye, mild toasted grains, a bit of caramel malt with some floral earthy hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finishes with rye, grains, malt and earthy hops bitterness for balance, slightly dry ending. Overall a very good, balanced and good drinking brew.

Thanks to whitenads for sending me this one.

Enjoy by: 6/23/14.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, spicy rye, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with spicy rye, earth, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice balance between the rye and citrus forward hop aspects.

Serving type: bottle.
