I enjoyed this today at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. Served on tap, it had a light red color, and the head left full lacing around the glass. The smell was a nice balance between rye and hop flavor, especially pine. The taste was consistent with the balance, with pronounced rye but also plenty of hop punch in there. It was fairly bitter, and the alcohol was concealed nicely. The mouthfeel was great, as this beer had the right amount of thickness and carbonation and went down very nicely. Overall, while I'm not a huge fan of rye beers, I recognize that this is well crafted and is easily the best rye IPA I've had.

Pours an amber red color with a white soapy head. Aroma of big malt and perhaps a whiskey element. In the taste, spicy rye, toasted malt and a dry hop bite. Alcohol is there but not overpowering. Has a doughy malt, spicy rye, caramel and bitters thing going on. Medium to full bodied ale, with a dry bite and cleaner finish. Overall, I quite enjoyed the bigger version of the bonehead.
