24oz can, sample from the brewery. Nothing is more punk than a 24oz can.

Beautiful pale copper hue, great looking show of lacing. Orangey piney hops in the nose, some spicy rye and caramel in there as well. Deep smoothness, a little creamy, and medium bodied. Clean graininess with bread, rye, and faint caramel. Ample hopping with overtones of citrus rind, pine, fresh cut grass, & blonde tobacco. Kiss of fruit esters and more hop resin in the finish. Damn good job with this beer, seek this one out.

Pours into an imperial nonic a clear copper with a nicely formed full one finger white head atop that settles into a frothy mass.Pine and herbal hop notes on the nose along with caramel/biscuit malts underneath.The feel lacks a little body to me and takes away from the full flavors,a little sharp as well.Some pine and rye spice go together nicely upfront on the palate,nice sharpness,some lightly sweet biscuit malts hold thru the finish.A really good beer but the body keeps it from being great...in my opinion.

L: Pours hazy gold amber under a 2” clingy, lacy cream colored foam cap that reduces to 1/3 its original size over 2 minutes. S: Moderate resin and mint hop aromas with moderate to moderately low rye spice aromas and traces of light toast to bread crust. T: The palate starts with a touch of mildly sweet light fruit seasoned with rye spice supported by moderate levels of pumpernickel. Light dank in the background. Medium levels of malt flavor balance medium to medium high hop flavors. Hop bitterness is medium to medium high. Well balanced. F: Very creamy with above average carbonation and medium body. O: Well developed flavors and a nice balance make for a very easy to repeat beer.

Pours a beautiful clear gold with ample head and tremendous lacing clinging all over the glass. Aroma is dank, hoppy, piney with some grapefruit and assorted citrus. Taste is very hoppy, with plenty of piney hops and grapefruit. Carbonation is a touch lighter than I would have wanted, but overall, this beer feels good and the 7% ABV is hidden very well !!!

Pours a lovely copper with fb of off white head. Smells of pine, toasted malt, some herbal notes and a hint of rye. Taste is sweet malts forward transitioning in to more piney, some pithy grapefruit notes, herbal notes with the rye smoothing the transition. Some biscuit notes, caramel on the front end Hop notes providing a fair amount of balance and astringency to the sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium, the rye definitely provides a smoothing influence on the texture, moderate carbonation and clean finish.
Overall a rather good take on an IPA – the rye influence did seem to mute some of the notes that I enjoy – but overall – very good.
