Many thanks to SawDog505 for this can.

A - Very bright, clear vibrant orange colored pour with thick, creamy white lacing color. Light carbonation.

S - Rye, onion, garlic.

T - Spicy rye, onion, garlic throughout ending with a lingering spicy grapefruit and bitterness.

M - Big medium body with a silky, prickly finish.

O - Really digging this beer. Canned on 2/23/17 and still potent. Nice!

Poured into a 16 oz Troegs Snulip canned on 2/23/17. Pours a very bright orange with a two plus finger sticky white head that clings to the sides of the glass.

Smell is sharp rye, tangerine, pine, some garlic and onion, and grapefruit rind.

Taste follows nicely a nice hit of rye, garlic, onion, pine, tangerine, and a nice shot of grapefruit that lingers awhile after each sip.

Mouthfeel is a little bigger than medium, plenty of life, a little dry, and very approachable for 8% ABV.

Overall this is a very nice brew, reminds me of a subtle Gubna or Deviant Dale's.

Poured a clear copper color with a 3F Head in a Stone imperial pint glass, which is a good glass for this style.

The aroma isn't strong: Sweet, malty, citrus, but pleasant.

I especially like the MF: lighter body, light carbonation, smooth, spicy. I need to buy more of their beers which have an easy drinking well brewed rep.

Excellent taste: smooth citrus, slightly sweet and malty. Light spicy finish.

I really like this beer. Very easy drinking, smooth, flavorful, and good citrus. A good choice for a go to IPA. I need to buy more of their beers, which have a rep for easy drinking and week brewed.

Pours a three finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Murky pale amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit hop nose and flavor is an excellent balance of caramel and grapefruit hops, lingering hop aftertaste. $4.99 for a 500ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma. Bottled 10/8/15.

I enjoyed this beer at the Port Tavern not far from the brewery. Deep golden color. Spicy nose of rye and hops. Flavor follows nose, with strong malt backbone tempered by bitterness. Body is great, coating the palate and leaving a great finish. Overall I'm a sucker for rye IPAs, and this one is up there.

Very nice, if you like sniffing this beer is for you. It also taste like a hopped DIPA.

Outstanding! Maybe a TAD sweet but delicious flavour and earthy spice from the Columbus and rye!

Growler from Andover Liquors.
Deep golden color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates quickly. Spicy earthy pine with just a hint of citrus on the nose. The flavor continues the spice but adds a bit of earthy rustic raw hop notes that clashes a bit. Bready caramel maltiness brings up the rear but is enough to provide a bit of balance. Alcohol is a bit too present for my tastes. Decent brew but the recipe or process needs just a little tweaking.
