Pretty solid. The use of rice makes for an interesting flavor. Lots of hoppy goodness and well balanced with a really nice dark color. Not too bitter and well balanced.

From a growler into a snifter. Very clear strong gold color with great reflection, healthy carb and lacing. Mild hop nose, not too strong. Crisp fruity hop taste without lingering bitterness on the back end. Can't tell the high ABV by taste. Very balanced. Tasting it, I just think "man, this is an exceptionally well made beer."

This beer pours a crystal clear bright golden color with a 2 finger frothy white head. Retention is excellent and there are some rings of lacing. Smell is grapefruit, orange, pine and some sweet malt. Taste is similar. Some bitterness that is quickly washed away by the sweet caramel malt. Very well balanced. Feel is medium and resinous with good carbonation. Overall this is a very solid offering. Would certainly have this again.

A very interesting IPA. The rice element puts a 'tough to put your finger on it' unique feel to this one. Almost a honey sweetness on the back end and a blend of fruity and floral hops. Complex notes of pineapple and mango with a slight resin note. Excellent. Despite the high abv this goes down nicely
