Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: medium golden hue with plenty of haze and a thick finger of frothy ivory foam. Pretty nice!

Smell: floral and grassy with a very springtime character to it. There's also a little bit of a soapiness that could be due to the rye interacting with those floral hops; whatever the case, it's not bad.

Taste: floral and soapy, just like the aroma but with a stronger intensity. This is not actually a bad flavor, if this type of thing is your jam.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: the "soapy/floral" character is something I associate more with regular pale ales, but there's no law that says an IPA can't do it too. Not a bad beer.

Yellow beer lacking in the clarity department, I guess this is a rye beer, so maybe that contributed to the appearance in its lackluster look. Aroma didn't pop on the hops or rye, but it was floral. Maybe they dropped all of one citra hop cone, but I didn't pick anything like that up here.

Taste was nothing like the label. Lacked hops. Lacked citra. Lacked rye. Can't figure out what they were going for here, tasted nothing like it was advertised as.

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.
