I put this on tap (Hoffer's) and it lasted just a few days. The viscosity of this citrus heavy brew was like molasses. I couldn't believe how thick and syrupy this came out of the faucet. Very difficult to create any kind of head on this beer but weirdly enough, tons of lacing were left on the glass. Amazing citrus and hop overwhelms the nose on the initial gulp. Mouth feel lingers on the tongue and the roof of your mouth. Although really thick and hop heavy, this RYE IPA was incredibly easy to drink and had just the right amount of carbonation. I don't think this beer will be for those expecting a large amount of actual rye flavor. The flavor of the hops almost completely over powers it, but if you're looking for a damn good IPA with just a touch of RYE then I would highly suggest this one.

Had this on tap at Blue Palms during the Reserve Society weekend, while watching the Wolfpack beat up on BC in the bowl game.

Came out a dull light brown color, lots of head. Aroma was almost absent.

Taste, lacked hops. Its an ipa man! Couldn't really detect a rye bill to this, based on the taste, I thought it must be low. Tasted more like a brown ale with higher alcohol. To call this a rye ipa, just seemed like it was missing the most basic premise of what a rye ipa tastes like, hops and that rye spice. Neither were here.

22oz bottle clumsily poured into pint glass. Huge amber head tops hazy orange brew. Hello, lacing. Ample aroma of unmalted rye and citrusy hops. Flavor is bold and dry with a solid rye kick. Mouthfeel is a little on the syrupy side, and the finish is not the most crisp. Still this beer is a great example of why Rye and IPA is a killer combination.

Very nice, well balanced IPA. Some of these can be too hoppy, but they kept it nice and real. If I wasn't heading out of town to go back home the next morning, I definitely would have grabbed a couple bombers to go.

I would definitely drink it again, and if I lived in the area, this would be my go-to local IPA for sure. The DIPA was good as well.

Pours a clear copper color with a soapy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of rye and some citrus hops.

Tastes of the rye with a solid hop addition. Rye malt leads off with some spicy notes. This gives way to some breast and grainy sweet notes. Hops add in a bit of pine and citrus along with plenty of bitterness. Finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is solid, but nothing special.

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a medium bronze amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Nice caramel malt with piney and citrus hops and light rye. Flavor follows aroma with a good caramel malt supporting bright citrus and piney hops. Light grapefruit and a hint of spicy rye. Good mouth feel with a medium body with pleasant creaminess, more than expected from an IPA. A tasty rye IPA with well selected hops supported by a substantial malt body and a good touch of rye, all well balanced. Enjoyable.
