16oz can ~$2.75. Not sure why I bought this since it was really overpriced at $11 for a four pack, maybe I was just itching for something new. The very first aroma that hit me when I opened the can was plastic, ugh. Color is bright hazy orange, good head and lacing. The plastic faded from the aroma once I poured it into a glass and became a bit of piney hops and a maltiness. Taste unfortunately has that plastic note, maybe its the rye? Not sure because I've had plenty of rye beers and never caught this plastic note before. Its really too bad because I can taste a good malt/hop combo hiding behind the rubber/plastic. I'm going to revisit this review if any of the other three cans are better but as it stands I won't be buying anymore Renegade beers.

edit: noticed a big flocculated chunk of white yeast (I hope) stuck to side of my glass, ugh. Maybe that's the source of the plastic?

A solid first can from Renegade. Upon cracking, the hops aroma smacks me in da face. Piney and spicy.

Pours a light amber/hazel/golden color. Head is medium and dissipates quickly. This foreshadows the feel, imo

Again, nice aroma. It's not in your face, but it ain't subtle either. Pine, spice and faint sweet bread. The rye is there and plays with the hops nicely.

Flavor is mostly hops and bread spice. Hold up the rye and light crystal is the hop profile. It keeps this beer from being a malt mess. So fine is the line, and Renegade dances on it playfully.

The only thing about this beer that takes a hit on points is the feel/body. It seems thin. Is this lack of carbonation? I'm not sure, but the lack of head points this way.

I had the ryeteous in a 10oz pour alongside their red IPA. It had great rye and orange hop aromas. The mouthfeel was very smooth, especially compared to the red IPA. Lots of upfront rye flavor that out shined any hop bitterness.

I'll definitely be coming back for this one.

good local ipa, nice spice from the rye. pours a hazy honey color from the growler into a pint glass with a good 2 inch white head on top. smells hoppy with a very interesting spicy malt aroma as well. the two work well together. flavor is big time rye malt, way more so than many other rye beers ive tried. it imparts a spicy character to the beer that is carried on by big grassy hop additions and a vibrant mouthfeel. body is a bit bigger than medium, but you could easily put back 3 or 4 pints of this. a staple of renegade, and a nice ipa to try.

Picked up a growler at the brewery. Poured from growler to pint glass. The beer pours a perfectly clear golden/orange/amber color with a nice 2 finger white head. Good retention and lacing. The aroma is nice and hoppy full of citrus tones and hints on earthy pine. A faint crystal malt base and rye spiciness also prevalent. The flavor is more rye spice dominant with the same citrus hoppy flavor, very nice. Again, mild crystal malt base provides a pleasant base from which the spice and hops build. Medium bitterness. Finishes with a nice mix of spice and mild citrus flavors. Dry and crisp. The mouthfeel is lighter than anticipated. A bit fuller feel would be nice, but doesn't detract from the beer. Overall, an excellent Rye IPA. Highly recommended.

Sampled on-tap at Renegade Brewing Company.

Faintly orange-amber in color, with a white head. Citrus seemed to dominate the nose, mostly oranges, joined by pine as well. Slightly earthy from the rye and malty on the nose, with more of this on the dry palate.

I had this one on tap at Renegade poured a clear golden amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of rye, biscuit, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, biscuit, earthiness and a hint of pine with a smooth dry lightly bitter finish.
