look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
APPEARANCE: The Ryeteous pours a nice, pleasant orange color with a half-inch, nearly white head that slipped away rather quickly. A wispy cap creates a ring around the edge of the glass and then most of the middle of it, leaving a mote-like void around the outer portions of the glass. There is a slight haze left once the chill is gone and the lacing…
SMELL: This has got a great nose. Some nice rye aroma provides a backbone for the big, fresh, and floral hops and the sweet caramel malts. There also seems to be a touch of honey in the nose here. Yep, it looks like a DIPA and it smells a little like one too.
TASTE: The most noticeable aspect of this beer right off the bat is that the sweet malts of the nose do not translate into the taste. The hops are strong and bitter with an earthy and grassy flavor. The rye malt seems to keep this one steady throughout the sip, but a touch of citrus comes through on the back end - mostly grapefruit with maybe a hint of lemon.
MOUTHFEEL: The light carbonation goes a fairly long way in terms of sparkle and the body is pretty light for an IPA. A nice tingle remains on the palate after each sip.
OVERALL: This is a pretty good effort and my first impression of Renegade is pretty solid. This seems like a great Boulder house-party beer – a nice, solid IPA at a reasonable price and in a can.

Thanks to beersndrums for this one!
16 oz can poured into a globe at cellar temperature.
L – Medium amber color with a 1.5-finger frothy cream-colored head. Decent retention and some traces of lacing. Clear with a decent amount of bubbles.
S – Lots of caramel and rye malt with grapefruit and resinous piney hops. Very nice.
T – Starts off sweet with caramel malt and then a bitter blast of hops rushes in with grapefruit, pine, and mildly earthy notes. As the bitterness fades, spicy rye is very apparent. Tasty.
F – Medium-bodied, decent carbonation, a sticky and mouth-coating feel, and a bitter and dry finish. Grapefruit and pine hops linger for a nice amount of time.
O – This is a tasty IPA with a nice helping of rye. I think the spice of the rye pairs well with the piney hops that are apparent in the aroma and taste. There’s nothing out of the ordinary here, but it’s just a tasty and very drinkable rye IPA. Another first beer from a different brewery. Thanks, Jared!

On tap at Renegade Publik House. Poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - gold, bubbly, decent white head, not much lace.
Smell - somewhat subdued. Seems like a lesser version of the Elevation (I had the DIPA first).
Taste - tastes great like many IPA's do. Doesn't separate itself though.
Feel - quality IPA feel. Rye stands out, but bitter finish balances well.
Overall - available in cans, so bonus, but still a bit pricey.
Serving type: on-tap
