Bottle share at Proof, I think Masterson brought this one in. Pours a pale yellow with almost no head, collar, or lacing. Aroma is very muted malt and some piney hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with the bitter piney hops up front. Light body and good carbonation though.

Came out extremely yellow and hazy, didn't have the hop aroma you'd look for in an ipa, definitely delivered on the 'flowers' though. Floral, but not floral from whole leaf hops, floral, from well, probably flowers. Allegedly dry hopped with citra and cascade, I just didn't pull that out of the nose in any sense. Cascade, maybe, nothing from the citra.

Upon immediate tasting, I thought, uh, did they pour me a saison? It was light, somewhat refreshing, floral, mild, barely hoppy not at all bitter. . . how did this get to be claimed to be 80 ibu?

It was certainly innovative, unique, but it really didn't seem like it belonged at an ipa festival, really, seemed more like it belonged at a saison festival just as much, yes, it was missing some obvious things you'd want in a saison, but I mean, it owed more to a saison than an ipa.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a tight, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of some light rye notes and a floral hops.

Tastes of some spicy rye, floral hops, and a touch of malt sweetness. Malts lead off with some spicy rye and a bit toasted bread. This gives way to some floral and citrus hops with a bit of pine as well. Moderate bitterness leads to some caramel sweetness. Finishes fairly clean.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid floral IPA, but the addition of rye doesn't do it for me.
