A: light copper color with little transparency. Good lacing and carbonation with little head.
S: it has some inherent sweetness and yeast scent similar to what you find in Belgium beers
T: something I have found with most south eastern breweries is the impact of the water to the flavor profile. Their IPAs leave you with a muddled hop flavor instead of the piney profiles offered by Stone. Nice balance of light malt and a predominant hop/floral profile
M: medium-heavy mouth with a good amount of carbonation. Leaves an OK after taste that I do not prefer.
O: the label advertising a DIPA with Rye pulled me in to purchase this beer. In the edit doesn't deliver a good hop hit nor rye flavor but rather what I have come to expect from east coast "IPAs": a muddle shadow of their cousins west. The saving grace to this is the healthy balance of sweetness they managed to add to the norm muddled hop profile

Enjoyed out of a brown 12 oz bottle with no discernible bottle dating that I can see. Poured into a large 22 oz snifter.

Appearance - Aggressive pour yields a nice two-finger foamy head the color of french vanilla. Takes a few minutes to dissipate, leaving sticky but receding lacing and a rim of foam around the edge of the glass. Body is glowing amber-orange hue with a faint amount of chill haze.

Smell - Lots of strong hop profiles, with grapefruit, hints of mango, pine resin, fresh vinyl and an underlying bite of alcoholic esters. As the initial aroma fades, a sweetish grain characteristic, almost like graham cracker, emerges.

Taste - The grapefruit again comes through, now with a bit more astringency than the smell. Hop bitterness quickly emerges from the initial fruit elements and there is some definite heat from the alcohol. I'm not one to shy away from a strong beer, but this not what I would call a "hidden" 9%. Finishes with some earthy spicy from the rye.

Mouthfeel - Slick and resinous, with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Bittersweet finish that lingers well after the swallow.

Overall, a very tasty take on a rye Imperial IPA. The rye is definitely present, but I agree with the classification of it as an IPA versus a Rye Beer. The hops are definitely the star, while the rye makes it unique.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: orange gold/auburn with thick creamy off white head and great clarity

Aroma: a lot of pine, citrus, fresh bread, slight spiciness, hint of pepper,

Taste: delightful blend of spicy and peppery rye character and piney hop flavor. Well balanced but with a nice bitter finish

Mouthfeel: full bodied, tangy, bitter and medium carbonation

Overall: A solid Ryepa. Not the best I've had but a great one to quench a thirst and keep you coming back for more.
