Rocket Dog. Interesting name. Pours a bright golden straw, with a nice amount of clarity. It's lighter and more yellow than I was expecting, as I typically expect beers brewed with rye to be more red in color. Nice fizzy half inch head crowns the glass. Prodigious amount of hop aroma hits the nose first, with waves of grassy and spicy notes piercing the nostrils. First taste hints at the nice carbonation and a smooth bitterness that coats the palate. Taste is very hop forward, with a freshly mown grass character hitting the palate first. Grapefruit is up next, with some honey sweetness in the middle rounding things out there's also a nice and sweet, almost like bell pepper, spiciness that finishes the beer. The rye takes a back seat in this beer, as it offers a solid pillar in the background. This beer is all about hops, and I can appreciate that in an IPA.

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.

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
