Pours a cloudy copper with over a finger of white head that lingered for a decent amount of time. The nose has mild hop and rye notes. The same notes are present in the flavor profile. The finish is nicely bitter with the rye spiciness coming on a bit stronger.
This is a decent effort, but it is not a top tier rye beer.

Appears a clouded golden copper orange hue, with a thicket of off white head, intricate even lacing. Aroma has citrus bursts, apricot, hints of mango...hints of biscuit malt and dry yeast components. Let's see how it tastes, bitter, bitter, and oh yeah bitter. A wave of hops, big bitterness, lacks cohesiveness with a malt profile a bit of spicy rye in the backend, but more or less a wave of hops and finishes with bitter resins and dry yeast notes. Bottled 10/28/13 they have a bit of time on them but I think these bottles are just a bit over the top with dry hop bitterness, lacks malt sweetness, and balance. There is the spicy rye grassiness that only adds to the earthy bitterness and vegetal garlic/onion notes I'm getting it's like chewing on an everything bagel at this point. Mouthfeel completely drying bitterness, my mouth is a desert, waves of lingering bitterness ample soft carbonation resinous medium bodied ale. Overall, I appreciate the hops, but this cat who used to brew at DFH, needs to go do an internship on the West Coast to learn how to tame the hops or keep brewing collaborations with Lawson's Finest!!!

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled on 10/28/13.
A: Pours a hazy golden orange with an average white head. Too opaque to see any visible carbonation. Leaves some nice lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: Real nice hop aroma on this one backed up by ample rye malt. Lots of the spiciness I enjoy in a rye IPA. Bit of a sweetness to it, and a touch of booze.
T: Delicious flavor on this one. Hits you with a dose of hop bitterness that is soon overpowered by rye goodness. Hops pop back in for the aftertaste and remind you its an IPA. Nice roastiness to the malts which rarely make it through the hop of an IPA.
M: Medium body with slightly low carbonation. Nice nectar like quality I look for in IPA's. Finish is dry and mostly crisp with a touch of hop stickiness.
Overall I'm really impressed and will be headed back for more than a single bottle. Definitely worth a try by any rye fan or hophead.

The sticker on the bottle is cool beans.. This IPA is great! You can smell and taste the hops right out the bottle.. This beer should definitely be rated higher.. I think Otter Creek nail it with this one..The hops linger in your mouth.. I'm bios when it comes to IPAs but this is just a good beer to have.. Cheers!!!!

Big fluffy white head. Pulpy and cloudy, almost opaque orange brew. Solid head retention and thick lacing.
Citrus hops and caramel malt. Grapefruit, mango, honey, good fruity aroma. Light pepper.
Bite of spice and rye, followed by a wave of hops: mostly tropical, following the nose, but also a hint of light citrus. Biscuity caramel malt backbone, complementing the rye.
Fairly dry, easily drinkable, but a big dose of hops with massive lasting flavor means you could gulp, but will probably savor.
At two months old, this IPA still has plenty of hop character, and the malt is not overpowering. Very tasty. Good balance, and an interesting hop profile.
