3.31/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Burnt orange color. Much lighter then I expected from a rye ipa. Half a finger of head on the pour which settled in only present on the edges of the glass. Low active carbonation. Sticky lacing left behind at each level.

Smell: Notes of toffee and almond aggressively greet the drinker. The rye is again much lighter then I expected. Comes off with a roasted aroma way beneath everything else going on here. Some hop tones poke through on the body but take a backseat as well.

Taste: Toffee, oak, and sugary malt sweetness hits the palate first and carries through into the body. Rye picks up a bit but gets buried under sweeter tones. Lacking a real potent hop profile, get the most on the back end and finish.

Mouthfeel: Sugary palate feeling, lacking aftertaste.

Overall: Not really sure what to make of this one. Most of my rye experience has come in stouts and bigger ales so maybe my palate just isn't receiving this one as well as it could have. I wanted a darker, earthier rye and malt presence but instead I got a really sweet, bright beer.

Excited to see another Jackie O's can show up, the Hop Ryot you guessed hit is an Rye IPA. Pours a hazed copper hue with fine bubbled off white head, fine even banded lacing. Aroma spicy rye hits you up front and center, with citric grapefruit rinds, herbal, and pine accented hop profile the can just says brewed with rye malt and lotsa hops. Rye gives it a creamy spiced bread character, hop pellets are providing healthy levels of hop bitterness citrus peel and mild pine cone flavors very earthy slightly abrasive on the palate, creamy textured. Mouthfeel has smooth carbonation their house yeast always give me just a hint of medicinal or band aid phenolic character but not overpowering to the extent that it ruins the beer for me. Carbonation works just fine, again the creamy texture and luscious light hop oils blends to a smooth finish herbal/pine earthy hop bitterness does not stick around it actually finishes quite clean for a beer with lotsa hops. Overall, lotsa hops a bit of a rye malt base with caramelized sugars decent definitely not mind blowing why don't they release any of their big or wild beers statewide, it bums me out.
