22oz bottle (though perhaps not as full as it should be?) served in pint glass. Beer is amber and slightly cloudy and forms no head. Nice citrusy IPA type aroma with a hint of caramelized sugars. Flavor is also like a not-so-pale IPA in profile, with hops forward, and a decent malt balance. This is nowhere nearly as hoppy or floral, but I'm reminded of 90 minute IPA. Rye flavors are pretty subdued, unfortunately. Mouthfeel is substantial and complements the level of the bitter/sweet balance, which is exactly where you want it in a 6.5%, without any deception.

Drinkable and enjoyable if not fantastic.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a subtle effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy ivory foam with a bit of an orange cast. Head retention seems pretty good! I like it.

Smell: sweet malt with plenty of caramel character and a hint of rye spiciness. Hops don't jump out at me but are resiny, if anything, in character. Despite its sweetness, this beer seems nicely balanced to me.

Taste: sweet and caramelly with a spicy, prickly character. This reminds me a bit of a strong ale, but pared back a bit. I like it OK, but really it's a little bit messy.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and somewhat effervescent mouthfeel. Not creamy, but that's not what this style demands, anyway.

Overall: I'm glad I've had this beer, but it doesn't grab my imagination. It just seems a little over-done, maybe. I think rye IPA is a concept that still needs to mature, much like the black IPA. I will probably not reach for another one of these, but if you are interested in the latest developments in the world of rye, this is certainly worth a try.
