3.6/5 rDev -11.1%
Thanks for sharing the growler, mjyoung. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a dark ruddy brown with a billowing, dense, cream colored head. Head had great retention and faded into a thick film leaving rings of lace down the glass.
S: Rye, spices, herbal hops, touch of grapefruit, and bread crust malt. Complex.
T: Big rye, very spicy and herbal tasting. Bread crust, grains, bitter hops, leafy and citrusy finish. The aftertaste is very spicy.
M: Medium-full body, bitter mouthfeel, smooth yet drying, normal carbonation.
O: Gotta love the rye. Definitely powerful and bitter. If you love rye you’ll love this, but beware it’s not as drinkable as a normal ipa.

I had this on-tap at Capone's during philly beer week. Served in a sample glass.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange/amber color with a layer of off white head that fades to a ring around the pour.
Smell: Some citrus bitterness with a mild spice note from the rye. Just a touch of malt sweetness, quite mild overall.
Taste: The dominant flavors here are some citrus peel hops with the rye spice. A good amount of malt sweetness to keep things balanced, I'm really digging the rye here.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: I loved the rye note in this beer. I thought the balance was quite nice. Easy to drink, I would definitely have another.

San Diego, CA
Cloudy dark orange with a half-inch near-white head that leaves regular, circular lines of lacing down the glass. Pretty.
Floral hop aroma, along with a bit of biscuit and rye.
The flavor too is quite floral and biscuity, with a moderate level of bitterness, and a bit of earth and leaves. Moderate bitterness.
Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.
A nice, well balanced, drinkable IPA, though unexciting.

On tap at FiftyFifty
Look: Orange in color with a 1/4 inch off white head and ok retention with some nice circular lacing
Smell: Floral hops present themselves right away and finishes with a rye spiciness
Taste: Much of the same as the nose but actually quite a bit more potent. The back end has a tremendous amount of hop burn and is a bit astringent.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and high carbonation
Overall: In my opinion this is not that great of a rye ipa. Everytihng about it is just a bit off putting and has a lack of balance

Had this on-tap at the brewery while I picked up my bottles of Eclipse.
A - Slightly cloudy amber with white head and nice lacing.
S - Pine, citrus, rye spice, lightly toasted bread.
T - Rye spiciness, grapefruit, some malt and nutty flavors at the finish. A bit of sweetness balances out the aggressive hop presence.
M - Medium. There's enough malt here to give it a nice backbone.
O - A good rye IPA.
