look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear and brassy with a very light haze and a off white rock head two fingers thick.

Aroma: Topical fruit, pear, grapefruit, piney, sweet syrup, faint strawberry.

Taste: A little bit malty in the front with a touch of dryness. Grapefruit, piney, sweet fruits, simple syrup notes in the tail end.

Notes: A decent drinking beer sweeter than a lot of other American I.P.A's but it's still good. Cheers.

A- pours golden-orange, slightly hazy with a small creamy white head that has great retention and some solid lacing down the entire glass

S- citrus zest, orange juice, grassy, earthy, sweet bready malt and a spicy rye kick at the end

T- orange citrus hop with some earthy, almost vegital notes mid-palate, herbal and grainy, lemony citrus linger on the the finish with some spicy grainy rye

M- medium body, medium-high carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish

O- not as hoppy as one would expect from an IPA, but enjoyable nonetheless. The rye copmpliments nicely without overpowering.

Poured from a bottle into a Delirium tulip

A- pours a transparent shade of orange with a one finger pure white head that fades quickly and leaves a solid trace of white. Looks great

S- a little bit of rye and some tropical fruit. Solid albeit unspectacular

T- the rye punches you early on, and the finish is the juicy tropical fruit coming through.

M- medium bodied. Solid average

O- good beer. I liked the Crank Tank Rye much more, though

A: Pours a hazy golden apricot in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation and some orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer evenly. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with some slightly stronger aromas of citrus/orange and herbal/floral hops.

T: Moderate flavors of pale + caramel malts along with moderate flavors of rye - there is a nice spicy element to the upfront flavors of this beer. Just a touch of sweetness in the malts. That is followed by some light to moderate flavors of herbal and citrus/orange rind hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness but it fades rather quickly.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth upfront with some light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This beer is enjoyable but the combination of the rye spiciness and bitter hops make this one that I probably would only have a single of in a session. It is definitely beer I would have again but is a little more intense than easy drinking.

Gift from ba grizzlyadam

Pours hazy honey gold with a very small off white head. Smells of strongly of citrus hops. Taste is kind of muted hops with a good amount of crystal malt. Mouthfeel and carbonation are about right for the style. Overall pretty decent beer.
