Wow is this a great APA!!!! Lighter in color than most IPA's with a mild head. The nose is a thing of beauty. I could not stop smelling my snifter. Big citrus with almost a white wine aroma from the Nelson hops. I've become a fan of the rye IPA's but this beer took it to another level. In my Top 5 all time ..... Epic beer

One of my favorites. Good amount of hops, and the smell is delicious.

Very smooth, surprisingly light on carbonation. Piney, an almost mango fruit aroma. The rye shines through and I get a grapey aftertaste that blends perfectly with the aroma and bitterness. Amazingly smooth for an IPA at 7.2. The aroma is splendid, it's like, taking a shot in the mouth from Jesus.

Not a pale ale by any stretch, this ipa is my #1. It's great in a bottle but if you get a chance to visit the brewery, you must have it on tap or get a growler. Consistently excellent beer

Great balance, super fruity - piney ipa smell, but tastes like apricots to me. Possibly my favorite beer of all time, but I've had a couple bad batches.
