3.6/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Growler purchased from the brewery. Poured into Stone pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy orange. Nice head to start which fades to a very slight lacing. Not much carbonation visible.

S: Grapefruit, biscuit, slight citrus, orange peel. Ends with a nice piney aroma that has a bit of spice to it.

T: Just like the flavor except much more of a grapefruit follow-through and a nice rye finish.

M: Not too bitter. I expected a litter more bitterness from a Rye IPA. Actually makes it more drinkable, and I love bitter beers.

O: Good beer. A little more hops would make it an outstanding beer, but thats the fault with most Rye IPAs. The Rye really overwhelms the hops. However, this beer is still very good and will def have again. Barrier definitely has better IPAs out there, especially Money and Ruckus. Love this brewery, everyone needs to try.

Serving type: growler
