Undated bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of melon with a touch of citrus
Head small (< 2 cm), tannish, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing – none
Body medium red-amber, clear
Flavor – begins with melon flavors followed by rye spiceness. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation.

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3.5, Flavor 4, Palate 3.25, Overall 3.5625. Final weighted score: 3.7125
I wish I had found this earlier when it was fresher – although the hops are not bad at a year old. This is a pretty darn good rye IPA – flavorful with the hops allowing the rye to shine through. The small head and lack of lacing effects the score detrimentally.
