look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. can into a J. Wakefield OG teku glass.

A: Light gold and hazy, with a big (two or three fingers) of white foamy head with good retention. Lots of visible carbonation bubbles.

S: Citrus – orange and grapefruit – and tropical fruits. Light cracker malts. Milder resin, dank, and melon. Nice, though maybe not a crazy huge nose.

T: Orange-forward citrus and tropical fruits again. Biscuit malts with enough heft to make me think wheat – I’m assuming that’s the rye though. Just a bit of caramel sweetness that I could have done without. Hints of dank and melon in the hop profile, and it finishes with more citrusy bitterness in the hang – though there is a mild lingering caramelly sweetness as well.

M: Full-bodied for an IPA, but not obnoxiously so. Good small bubble carbonation sensation, and the alcohol presence seems about average.

O: This could definitely be in a rotation if I was living somewhere it was distributed. It’s different enough from a lot of the innumberable other IPAs sitting on shelves to keep things interesting, but still a tasty, fruity hoppy beer that would pair with food well, or be a beer to sail through the night with. Nothing crazy, but quite enjoyable.

a big boy version of one of my dessert island beers?! yes please! this sort of half imperialized version of one claw is an awesome brew, seemingly quite a bit hoppier and fuller bodied than the original, but still scary easy drinking, absurdly fresh tasting, and with a ton of unique character for being relatively simple in its composition. for me, aside from the additional body, the biggest difference here is the hop complexion, it seem far more nuanced and layered than citra alone, which is what i always get from one claw. it seems more southern hemisphere, pineapples and white peaches and a different type of oiliness, really inviting in nose and taste, and still only middle of the road bitter, if that. i still get plenty of fresh pale rye malt, but this time it seems supported by a bigger barley backing, maybe a bit more crystal type in here, but this isnt rich or sweet. it sure is frothy and expansive in texture though. peppery earthy rye spice meet tropical and highly botanical and fresh hops, citrus and melon and pine, all in balance, a seriously beautiful beer, a gold standard really for what this is. i heard there is a three claw too!!!

Fairly good IPA. Pours a hazy yellow color from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Big foamy white head and thick bands of lacing on the glass. Excellent head retention. Aroma is fairly weak, some mild citrus hops. Flavor is better. Nice balance between moderately bitter citrus and floral hops and slightly sweet bready malt. Mouthfeel is moderately rich and is crisp and somewhat bitter. Not a memorable IPA but solid enough and well worth a try.

12 oz can. Pours deep hazy golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and hoppy. Overall good brew.

This hazy unfiltered IPA delivers beneath its golden colour a tropical fruits mix bowl impression along some rye bread. The use of oats make this one very silky. Nice one!

Pours an unclear yellow, with fine, soapy foam.

Smell is heavy on the piney resin, with a hint of pepper and spruce.

Taste starts with some pepper, and then hits with a wallop of bitterness. Lots of piney resin and citru, but never overpowering.

Mouthfeel is medium, sticky and well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific IPA, where the rye really shines.

Hazy bright yellow color with frothy off-white head. Aroma has spicy hops with some astringent pineapple notes. Taste follows with bittersweet hop flavors, spicy notes, pineapple and some sweet grapefruit. Medium plus body, soft carbonation. Overall it's a really nice IPA, smooth and easy drinking.
