Pretty darn hoppy with a nice rye bite to it. If you like west coast style IPA's(very prevalent hop flavors) you'll enjoy this brew. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, but leaves the palate with a nice rye taste, real crisp. Enjoyed this brew with some spicy shrimp and veggies and it tasted great.

Appearance has a clear reddish brown color supporting a steady healthy head leaving nice lace. Smell of citric, malt and spicey hint of rye. Taste has a nice hit of the hops balanced with the sweetness of the malt and hint of rye. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall a nice twist on a IPA.

A: Pours a very clear light copper color with a 2 finger off white head.
S: Nice floral and citrus hops with an earthy undertones.
T: Nice caramel notes and some cereal grains with slightly citrus hops and spice from the rye. Bitterness isn't in your face and borders between pale ale and IPA. The finish is smooth and clean with slight lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue.
M: Medium body with refreshing carbonation
O: A really nice and refreshing rye IPA that goes down maybe a bit too easily. If you like AIPA's or pale ales I would definitely recommend you try this.

Poured bottle packaged on 12/17/13 into New Belgium globe
A-Pours light copper/amber two finger off white head with a lot of sticky lacing.
S-The aroma is earthy hops with prominent peppery rye notes, also hints of citrus.
T-The taste starts out bitter with bright citrus, the middle is malty with the rye spice adding a nice kick on the back end.
M-The mouthfeel is dry and floral finish, great balance and a aftertaste that is dry and sticks.
O-Overall, this is a nice beer by SN, not the best rye ipa out there but is good. Had hop rod rye just before this one and enjoyed it more.

Purchased two bottles in a mixed sixpack to try before sinking more money into a reasonably-priced twelvepack.
Nice graphic of hooded woman overlooking pastoral grain and floral scene.
2014 on the neck label. Bottled 12/17/13.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Harpoon IPA glass.
a: Clear copper with an enormous multi-inch tall white head which receded excruciatingly slowly to heavy rocky surface foam and extensive lacing.
s: Slight fruit.
t: Moderate strength hops forward over spicy malt base. Dry finish.
m: Moderate, good body.
o: Excellent rye IPA, drinks so fast you are surprised when it's all gone. Will be looking for a twelvepack.
UPDATE !/21/14: Had the second bottle with dinner tonight and afterwards as I was finishing it was struck by the peppery spice flavor from the rye, which was more pronounced than on any other rye beer I have had yet. Definitely will buy a twelvepack next time I see it, which hopefully will be tomorrow. Already made room for it in the basement beer storage shelves.
