Wow! I thought I liked rye before but I LOVE it now. This beer is a must have for any fan of hops. The rye is there full enough but is well balanced with the hop sweetness and malt backbone. Pours a nice head that dissipates to about a finger on a half pour. Appearance is hazy but light shines through good showing that clarity is there through the haze. Lingering taste is well balanced also. No dried out hop tongue here. Just a nice sweetness with that little hint of rye. Overall I am very impressed and will be asking the person that mailed it to me to send more, especially since he made sure to get it to me very fresh!

On tap at Jackie O's. Served in a tulip.
Poured a nice looking copper color with some tiny bubbles and a moderate amount of head. A fair amount of lacing remained on the glass as I delve deeper into this beer. Smelled of citrus, Wheat and A summer day. Tasted very similar to the smell with some wheat and citrusy hop charctets really coming through. Sweet but not over the top with a good balance of malt.
Mouthfeel was refreshing and Medium to light with a bit of dryness on the finish. A great IPA indeed and I really enjoyed this one fresh.

Woo hoo! This brew from Athens is out there. When I went to college there in the 70's I drank mostly Strohs and Miller with an Guinness now and again as a treat. This stuff is amazing.
I have been drinking this brewery's brown ale for a while and I really like it. This one is going to be a favorite too. It is definitely an American style - over the top.
You pop it open and pour a nice clear liquid into your glass, but it gives off a tremendous grassy, pungent aroma. This would go well with other grassy things.
The taste is over the top hops, like the aroma. Yet it is not too bitter. It's balanced in an unbalanced way.
It leaves you with an over-hopped aftertaste too. If you don't like an over-abundance of hops this is not for you, but if you do, celebrate, this is a great one.

I wasn't going to post my review of this until after the hauls landed for the Rules BIF but since others have been reviewing it I'll throw my hat in the ring
Pours a gorgeous golden orange with a nice touch of white head. A very pretty beer. Beautiful
Smells hoppy and sweet. The rye is strong on the nose and there is a touch of cat piss and pine. The rye is amazingly strong
Tastes sweet from the rye. Lots and lots of rye. There is a sharp bitterness from the hops. Pine and citrus are nice and strong. Very well balanced.
A nice thick mouthfeel. Very solid carbonation and very drinkable. One of the best Rye IPAs I've had.... not quite as good as Nelson but damn close :)

Stopped by and grabbed a growler. I planned on waiting but the dude said they tapped it just today, needed to have some hops!
A: wow. Pours a deep yellow almost orange with a nice fluffy white head.
S: on the pour, my hotel room started to smell like grapefruit. Wow. Never had a beer this strong in the nose.
T: very bitter but a nice malt backbone. Easy to sip and enjoy pn a warm day.
M: carbonation is good. Right where it needs to be
O: damn fine ipa from Jackie os. Hoping I gt to top by here again someday!
