I get a resinous deep rich west coast hop smell with some spicy sweetness. The sweet hop flavor is very noticeable The thick malty rye bread taste builds as you take more sips. It mixes with the hops very well and the citric resinous herbal bitterness really makes this just like a top notch IPA.
While easily being mistaken for an IPA it does have a thick rich rye taste but what i like about it is that its a sweet taste. As I drink more the more flavorful it becomes. The rye really comes out and the thick malty sweetness does as well. What a complex beer.
Hands down my favorite rye beer. Not only because of the obvious amazing west coast ipa hop flavor and bitterness but because of just how tasty that malty sweet rye is. As I'm sure others can tell you this is just all around a really great beer.
