Spicy nose with some fruit light fruit. On tap pours slightly hazed gold with a ½” white foam cap that produces medium lace. Rye spiciness on the palate with light fruit, hop spice and a crisp bitter finish. Above average carbonation, medium to medium full body, slight slicknesss.

This one is a brightish dark gold in color with some haziness. The off-white head, just under a finger tall, is pretty smooth. Lacing is pretty good, showing some legging toward the top of the glass and following with sporadic patching.
The nose isn't light, per se, but could use a little more strength. It does showcase the rye, both in a raw, grainy sort of earthiness as well as spiciness, while some floral hops come through with just a whiff of tropical fruits lurking there. Malt and hops balance is furthered by an interplay of caramel and pine, both lighter notes underneath. All I would say is that, while good, I would expect a bit more hop profile out of a dry-hopped beer particularly in the aroma than I get here.
The flavor shows a little more, though it doesn't deviate much. Focus is still on keeping balance while showcasing the rye, and I think Boulder gets it done. It's got a little more citrus and tropical fruits bitterness, enhanced by pine and balanced by caramel. It plays nicely with the earthy and spicy notes, which aren't so strong as to push everything under but still show. It's clocked at 40 IBU, so it's not as though it's intended to be a DIPA. This beer is an example of how dry-hopping can enhance a beer in a way that shouldn't and doesn't blow the drinker's face off.
This beer is nice and smooth, pretty creamy really, with a soft crispness giving just a gentle prickle on the tongue. It's medium-bodied but on the softer side, which works well for this beer. I would say it could be cleaner on the end.

Pours deep, clear copper with a thick white head on it. Smells of tropical fruit--mango, papaya. Subtle aromas. Tastes spicy and sweet up front, followed by a touch of citrus and mango flavors. Light sweetness and bitterness lingering at the finish. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied. Easy drinking and hop forward. I like the subdued rye spice. Definitely a restrained rye IPA and not a massive hop bomb. Very drinkable, so bonus points for that. I'd like more hop aroma, but it's a solid, drinkable beer.

Pours copper color with a chill haze. No aroma whatsoever.
In the taste, a bit of rye, a bit sweet, but quite forgettable. Has a lemony, slightly earthy flavor kind of reminding me of green tea with lemon. Fairly malty, but bland and nondescript. Very mild bitterness.

Light, medium bodied feel, slightly thin. Carbonation is fine. Overall, this is a below average offering. Not recommended.
