3.28/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a walnut colored body beneath the foamy, off-white head which slowly dissolves to leave a scattered lacing.

Plenty of malty backbone to support the spicy rye and hops in the aroma.

Similar to the aroma there is a malty sweetness that comes forward before the spicy rye and hops arrive.

Medium to fuller in body with medium carbonation and a pretty hearty finish.

Not a bad brew overall, nice rye touch, that could be brought out more with a bit less malt and additional pine hops.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

What country would Balky have to have been from if he said "Don't be ryediculous"? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise brass-amber topped by over a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises grass, grapefruit peel, mild biscuit, flowers, and mixed greens. The taste may or may not bring in more of the same, but I can't see very much beyond the blast of grassy bitterness, though a bit of rye bread kinda sticks out there in the distance. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, I can't say I came close to enjoying this beer. It's a mess of overt bittering hops, with no concept of balance or nuance.

Chameleon Ryediculous is a solid American IPA. Ryediculous has a very fruity (pineapple) smell and taste. Thick head and great lacing. The color is very Amber-ish with a very murky look to it. It is exactly what I think of when I think American IPA/Summer IPA. Ryediculous IPA is one of those beers where you could easy have 3-4 of them in a night.

Overall, it is a great brew especially at $1.25 a bottle (I always stock up on Sprechers/Chameleon when I am at the brewery) that I would highly suggest to IPA lovers.

Cheers!

3.13/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a copper - orange with two fingers of white head. Seems a little overcarbonated as it was overly fizzy. Decent lacing and stick.

Smells citrusy and hoppy - quite pungent. The smell carries over and this is a nice hoppy brew, but almost too much hop and sourness without any finesse or balance.

Overall, this is worth a try, but not a staple.
