Notes: A big, unfiltered American IPA built to accompany the big Eastern Winter. Just like an epic bluebird day follows a snow storm, a peppery build from the Rye-malt accompanies glorious hop notes of pine, citrus and fresh grass.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a thirty seconds. Light lacing strung about the glass. The smell had a nice balanced blend of sweet citrus over top of a light grapefruit, fresh and bright with a light grassiness coming in and out. The taste was bittersweet thoroughly balancing a crisp light spice into the mix. A sweet to lightly spiced aftertaste leads to a decent balanced dry to wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation hit appropriate for the style and for me. Nice bittersweet grapefruit harshness rolls over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could have again.

Palate Contaminants: other beer

Appearance is an opaque medium amber with a fair amount of fine white head. There's some particulate matter visible.

The smell is marmalade and pineapple. Sorta floral, too. I also get a little bit of what I can best describe as a powdered mix for some citrus drink. And celery.

The taste isn't nearly as complex as the smell. It's very malty and has a good deal of pine resin. The malt bring sweetness along with it, but I can't tie it to anything else. It's not bitter until the back end. In fairness, I suppose it might be a month or two past its prime.

Feel is a bit stickier than I'd like, but the carbonation is fairly well integrated. The dominant bitterness in the aftertaste is an issue for me.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a rocky white head that lasts and eventually fades with excellent lacing. The aroma is good. It's got your typical pale ale malt aroma; pale and dextrin malts, but with a slight rye spiciness. The hop aroma is present and provides a nice bitterness and balance. The taste is great. It has a stiff bitterness up front that lingers in the finish. The malt bill is well balanced and offers up a mild rye character that plays off the hops. The mouthfeel is fine. It's a medium/full bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is an excellent RIPA that's cheap and easily accessible. I could drink this beer on the regular for sure. Well done!

Looks like an average IPA. Tastes same, with a hint of rye darkness. Smells of pine hops, citrus (which does not followbthough on taste), and rye. Fairly simple, but drinkable and not bad.

Look: Transparent copper with a large eggshell head. Quite active with sticky lacing. Some yeast present.

Smell: Sticky sweet caramel malt notes. Vegetal and piney hops.

Taste: Sharp rye attacks the palate. The come sticky pine hops with green vegetal notes to overwhelm the body. A mild caramel malt peaks through. Finish is light citrus hops but is blown out by bitter pine.

Feel: Rye is spicy and dances on the tongue. The brew is bitter throughout with a semi-dry finish. No alcohol detected.

Overall: What would be an average IPA gets blown out by bitterness. While I applaud the bold Rye flavor it's a shame it gets overshadowed quickly by a bitterness that leaves the palate scorched earth
