I don't review much these days and generally use "Hads" but this only had one review so figured I throw in my comments.
Pours a clear medium dark amber orange with a an initial full and thick white head that fades relatively quickly. Nice looking.
Nose is super fruity with sweet oranges, lemons and pineapple; lots of nice esters if not perhaps just a bit too sweet on the nose.
Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy, pleasant and a true medium body with nice "lighter" carbonation.
Flavor profile is the weakness. Nose promises more. This "just misses" at every point flavor wise. Front palate hits you with a bit of sweet/citric/bitter and you wait for the acid and you wait for the real hit of flavors pomised only to be left hanging.
It promises and doesn't come through, leaving a rather bland and flat pine bitter finish that is boring and without appeal. I expected some rye spice and got it in nose and in that first hit on the palate - again, only to be left hanging. Not one I'd likely drink again.

Hey baby, how's it hoppin' tonight? Sexy blonde with amber/gold highlights and a nice head of hair. Oh yeah. Wait a minute, there's a grasshopper on the label?
Sweet and spicy with the unmistakable essence of rye. Nelson Sauvin hops? There is a mango (or some kind of citrus) aroma in the nose. I'm terrible with my exotic hops.
Mmm. Spicy, bready and fruity. Great combination in the mouth. Very tasty. Balanced. Drinks like a regular pale ale dialed up to 11. I love it!
The finish is clean and chewy at the same time. Lots of bread. It's perfection in my mouth!
I'm going to go ahead and list this as a rye beer because it's a style that deserves more respect. The IPA part is secondary to the tasty rye notes.
