Poured from a larger growler filled at Devon PA Whole Foods into a Nonic glass. Not too much head and just a bit of lacing. Pours a cloudy coppery hue. Faint flowery pine smell. Taste is very hop forward, more bitter than most IPA's in this range that lingers a bit. Overall another impressive entry in Dock Street's lineup.

Rye IPA is by far my favorite beer from Dock Street. The hops in this IPA really sings, piney, citrusy and hearty. The rye adds an acuity and acidity that perfectly accentuates the grapefruit and resinous hops, the mouthfeel is chewy and carbonation is very pleasant

Dock Street- Rye IPA

A- Deep golden copper orange with a thick foamy head Big ringed lacing.
S- Heavy caramel malt, oily pine hops and rye.
T- Heavy rye, molasses, caramel malt, black licorice, and thick earthy hops.
M- Huge bitter hops ur front with a very creamy buttery malt finish.

Overall- Quite tasty. The bitterness is a bit overpowering but the creamy malt makes up for it.

A huge thanks to Mr Holland for sending me this growler. I had this one on my wants for over a year, why you ask, on recommednation from another fine BA that it was a smooth mellow IPA that I had to try, and try I did. Served cold and poured into multiple pint glasses, this one was consumed on 04/15/2009.

The pour was very nice, light pale amber with a small light head of white that caem up to maybe a half an inch on the sides of the glass, before settling down into a broken crown. The aroma was very well balanced. Lots of bready malts here that were tied in with a nice light piney hop and a touch of light spice from the rye. The flavor was a carbon copy of this. Smooth, mellow, very well balanced and super drinkable. Started out with that nice clean feel and really well balanced profile. Nice overall presentation here as the hops were played on very well with light notes of rye and biscuit like malt flavor. The growler was easily demolished during the night.

Overall this was a very very drinkable and sessionable IPA and I am very glad I was finally able to track it down!

Not a bad IPA by any means, but the rye should have given it just a bit more bite. Overall, the general impression was a bit darker than ususal mid-range IPA. The level of hopping was nicely done and did not overwhelm the malt - but I was looking for just a bit more distinction. Enjoyable but not particulary memorable.

Thanks to axilla for sharing the growler...and roan for the second opportunity...
Appears a semi transparent light orange with a small white cap that slowly fades out. Spotty lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of hoppy citrus, apricot, grapefruit, and apple.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with the spicey citrus, bitter, yeasty, graininess coming through.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, grainy, bitter, fruity, and zesty.
