poured with a small white head that doesn't really stick around. pine and floral hops on the nose. big burst of citrus and floral notes up front followed by a spicy and caramel rye that melts or morphs into a dry tangerine ending. feel is a little thin but not watery. overall a really nice rye ipa. Local for me and excited to share as im a sucker for rye

Picked this up from Small Paul. Not expecting much, but maybe it will be good. Side poured with vigor from the bottle into a Sam Adams glass.

Appearance - Like the packaging, thats kind of cool. Pours a nice golden color with a small, one finger head that dissipates very quickly. Carbonation is evident throughout the drink, which I like. No lacing present

Smell - Exactly as the package describes. Very much a tangerine, grapefruit, citrusy bomb of hops in the nose. Quite an appealing nose.

Taste - Much like the nose, there is certainly a strong hop presence in this beer. Not much in the way of malts at all, a little hint of grains and rye but not much to balance the hops. The fruity hops come through strong in the middle of the drink and maintain throughout.

Mouthfeel - Its a little watery for my taste, I like my beers on the thick side. Finishes dry, clean, and bitter.

Overall - Its an OK beer. Nothing to make a special trip to the store over, I wouldn't buy it again. As a matter of fact, I didn't buy it to begin with, and I am glad. It isn't bad necessarily, but it isn't good. Just mediocre.
