Poured from a bottle into a firestone brewing pint glass. An off-white yellowish head tops the brew, about a finger in width with a fluffly texture that leaves thick lacing as it dissipates in moderate time. The body is a dense unfiltered coppery golden haze.

The scents are pretty muted, I think the floral hops and the rich malt blend well together which masks them both. I think some dry-hopping could make this much better.

The flavor is pretty solid, has a nice honey malt backbone and slightly biscuity flavor to it. The hops are pretty mellow, there is a slight bitterness all throughout the taste with a hint of pineapple and citrus undertones.

The mouthfeel is great, it's a rich creamy malty one that goes down smooth. Overall I think it's a solid basic IPA recipe but I feel like there is so much more you could do to this beer to make it awesome.

A 330 ml brown bottle from a 5 bottle variety pack. Pours a hazy marmalade hue, tall creamy off-white head that settles in under 2 minutes.

Bready and mildly toasted malt on the nose, with creamy citrus notes, and leafy, spicy hops. Warm alcohol is present.

The flavour is okay, but bottoms out pretty quickly. Malt is present but nearly under the radar, although presents itself as bready and a bit dry (from the rye malt most likely) when you do pick up on it. Things thin out until late finish and aftertaste, when the hops land with force and provide the bulk of the flavour present. Herbal, grassy, spicy, it's like a beefed up version of an English IPA.

Medium-bodied mouthfeel, with a rough creamy texture and moderate amount of carbonation.

Somewhat underwhelming, which is a shame as I know Martin is capable of some great stuff, especially when it comes to hoppy beers. This is more of a hybrid IPA, more intense and less balanced than the English variety, but I'm picking up more English and Continental hops in it all the same, although some of that can be interference from the rye malt. Could use a bit more malt in general and some pushing out of the flavour more throughout, rather than running thin until a whammy on the aftertaste.

This beer pours a cloudy pale peach colour, with two fingers of foamy, pillowy off-white head, which settles evenly, leaving a perfect circumference of pulled curtain lace around the glass. Quite attractive. It smells of bitter grapefruit, tangy orange, and caramel cream. The taste is grainy, slightly spicy malt, a softer citrus flavour, and a bit of alcohol warming. The carbonation is prominent, but not intrusive, the body medium-light in weight, a bit prickly but still fairly smooth overall. It finishes still sweet, with the spicy citrus hops clamouring, and getting some attention too.

Wow. Maybe it's because I haven't had a proper IPA in some time now, but this really hit the spot, and went down way too well for its 7 points of booze. And I now know how to say 'rye' in Danish!

Bottle courtesy Presario. Very decent IPA. Big creamy head on golden peachy body. A trail of thick lace is all that is left from a fruity mango scented concoction of mango grapefruit IPA. A tad astringent, otherwise well balanced. Above average mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

330ml bottle poured into tulip aug18 2010

A cloudy golden orange with a long lasting two finger head that slowly falls to a 1/4in film that leaves several patches of lace

S some spicy and citric hops with a little sweet malt

T again there's some spicy hops a little grapefruit and orange rind with a little toffee and the booze is well concealed

M decent carbonation gives it a creamy feel, rather nice really thick enough to please but no knife and fork required

D went down pretty quick for a 7% brew, I would drink this again but not in the 25$ 5 pack it comes in here in Alberta

I like the rye malt in this beer the spicy aspect works well for it
well worth trying and easy to consume
