The appearance of this beer is spectacular. Crystal clear deep amber color with a good finger and a half of head. The aroma on this beer is nice and hoppy with the spicyness of the rye coming through. The rye gives a very unique malt backbone to this beer. It's great, as a IPA lover I am really enjoying this. Pick some up if you get a chance.

2014 edition poured into tulip; hazy tawny brown, like ginger ale. Moderate white head that fades after a bit into a chunky topping of foam and spotty, slimy lacing.
Smells of dank piney hops, citrus rind, rye.
Tastes of spicy bready rye, bitter citrus rind/pine hops, and more earthy hop/malt flavors that all blend together, finishing with a hint of lighter bready sweetness which is then knocked down by bitterness lingering into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is well-carbonated, clean and light.
Overall, a tasty rye IPA. No shortage of hops, plenty of malt, delicious.
