3.66/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear gold orange color with lively bubbles racing up the brew to a foamy 2 finger off while head that didn’t move, fading very slowly and then leaving very good foamy lacing.

Smells of piney hops, herbs, rye, citrus, biscuit and some fruit which resembles citrus like lemon zest and orange peel; the rye jumps out up front but then gets mixed in with the herbals notes. A soft aroma for an IPA and it almost seems like the rye tames the hops a bit.

Tastes of spicy rye and piney hops up front, followed by herbs, citrus hops, biscuit, lemon, orange peel , grains, dry grass, floral hops or flowers and some spices like pepper and coriander; the aftertaste has more malt presence mixed with rye, and the hops fade after the initial blast of flavor. Not very hoppy for an IPA, but flavorful enough that it keeps your interest, especially if you dig the rye influence.

Mouthfeel is light and zesty with high, fizzy carbonation, a light to medium body, and a semi-dry aftertaste that is a combo of grains, herbs and rye. After swallowing the beer it feels like everything evaporated in your mouth.

Overall it was a good beer, not one that stimulated my taste-buds, but definitely a beer that I’d have again. It’s light enough that people could session it, as it hides the 6.4% ABV completely. This lacks the hop punch that most West Coast IPA’s carry, so I consider this a light IPA and closer to an APA. I’d order it in a bar but doubt I’d bring a 6-pack home.
