Orange-yellow color. (Around 8 SRM) Fluffy white head. Relatively clear. Lacing is great (if you care about that sort of thing.)
Excellent hop aroma. I'm thinking maybe... Simcoe? (As the beer warms I definately smell Cascade.)
Awesome hop flavor. Somewhat subtle, sweet, maltiness while exhaling through the nose. The malt profile is more "rounded" and interesting than your everyday IPA. But, hops are the primary flavor here. Must be what people describe as "floral." Bitterness coats the tongue, and sticks around.
This beer has a pretty thick mouthfeel, and it fizzes as it enters your mouth. (Relative to temperature, I'm assuming.) The fizz lingers for a few seconds after you swallow.
I love this beer. After drinking it only twice, it's one of my favorites. The rye malt adds a little extra to a great IPA. But, also stays true to the style.

Fresh dated bomber.
Looks like a bud light. Smell is just meh I can't really pick up on anything specific. Could have fooled me labeling this as a rye, i really don't taste it at all. It's drinkable but doesn't stand out at all. Don't mean to hate on it just nothing special thats all.

3.55/5 rDev -1.7%

The strongest point for me on this beer was the mouthfeel. This beer is large, round and smooth... creamy even.
The flavor has some good spice to it and is more hop-forward than your average rye beer.
The maltiness is there but the rye flavor itself- that acidic spiciness was not as apparent as I would have liked.
Amber/straw color, generally hazy.
Overall I can recommend this to someone who likes their IPAs on the malty side but I don't think its a great example of a Rye beer.
Serving type: on-tap
