Pours deep, clear golden. A thin, white creamy head leaves lacing.

The smell is of minty rye with pine and some caramel.

The taste is of pine with a nod towards grapefruit and a firm caramel-ish backing. The taste of rye is not as strong as in the aroma, which works well. It is there to give a mild spicy touch to the bitter, hoppy finish.

Smooth. Easy to drink, especially for relatively high abv (which is well-hidden). The carbonation is just right for the style and strength.

A nice use of rye in an IPA that has some citrus character but leans more piney. Very enjoyable!

Serving type: on-tap

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

A- orange body with light carbonation visible, blonde hues... Finger thick head quickly dissipates into sticky lace and film.

S- citrusy, orange peels, piney hops.

T- still citrusy, more grapefruit like, the rye is very present and offers a tad of spice and i think contributes a bread-like quality... There's a sweet citrus finish that's nice too.

M- bitter and somewhat like biting into an orange peel.. I noticed some aggressive carbonation initially, but then it smooths out and becomes creamier... Not necessarily easy drinking due to hops and rye spice, but good...

O- good and tasty... Much more rye than a lot of so-called rye beers.
