Easily became a favorite of mine after just one lazy afternoon at the brewery. A golden translucent pour supports a nearly eggshell white head of a finger. Smell is of light hops and what I would assume to be rye. Taste is fugging magnificent with bitter and floral hops balanced by the pale rye malting, this is fantastic. Definitively west coast with what I would consider a slightly hop forward beer, the rye is unique enough to make this beer stand apart from other west coast IPAs. That being said, the hop blast and coating of the mouth with a lingering hop bitterness makes it easy to put this beer toe to toe with any of the common favorites of the w/c style: stone IPA, even blind pig :0
Overall, I bought a whole case need I say more???

A - Served a hazy golden-yellow color with a thin finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some spicy rye, and some earthy and citrus hops.

T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malt with some light spice from the rye and some citrus hop. Through the middle, some more piney hops come through with more bitterness. The finish is mix of rye with some citrus hops and light bitterness.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a nice spicy and dry finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nice rye addition to the IPA base. Really nice balance of malt, grain, and hops.

Just realized that I've never reviewed or ticked this one.
Had from a bottle a handful of times and seemed middle of the road.
Just enjoyed it on tap from the Marin BC taproom and was so much better than bottle.
Poured a nice golden color with a thumb of creamy head.
Nose was a nice crisp hop pop. One that I wasn't expecting based on my bottle experiences.
Flavor is a lot like the nose and I very much enjoyed every sip.
Overall a very nice, very close to me (less than 2 miles) IPA. I'll revisit this one for sure.
