Nice juicy taste profile - home of papaya and grapefruit and solid rye malt backbone. A wonderful IPA.

Appearance: A beautiful pour in which lots of suds take a moment to rise and form a finger and a half of frothy off-white head over a hazy orange brew. The head had some retention and there was a mild amount of lacing.

Aroma: Rye bread and tropical fruit

Flavor: Very much what you smell; rye malt and fruit. It's very much an IPA but the hops are not overpowering. It kinda reminds me of a double with the sweet malt character before the bitter hops kick in. The rye malts can be tasted throughout.

Feel: light bodied, not overly carbonated, starts smooth and sweet and finishes crisp, minimal lingering bitterness.

The first few swallows were extremely refreshing. I've tried a lot of good IPAs and I'd rank this among them.

12 oz. bottle into a snifter. Pours a clear orange with about 1/2 a finger of white head. Definite rye, spice, and citrus notes on the nose, along with subtle notes of pine and malt. Medium weight,mand very creamy mouthfeel. I get a big punch of rye, spice, and malt up front upon tasting. This taste lasts pretty much from start to finish. A farmiliar, piney/hoppy bitterness creeps in on the aftertaste, though, reminding you that this spicy, malty beverage is indeed an IPA.

I was impressed by how nice the mouthfeel was on this particular beer. Incredibly soft and creamy all the way through. While I feel like it could be slightly less rye-forward (just to balance it out a bit), it's a very good beer. I think I might enjoy the aftertaste moreso than the beer itself.

Bought a single bottle to taste. I'm going back for a 6-pack.
