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.

16oz can with no freshness date.

Hazed golden hue, decent lacing hold well. Big orange zest aroma with hints of lime leaves, tobacco, heather, peppercorn, nutty yeast, biscuity rye, grapefruit pith, mild esters and bread. Light crispness, creamy, slick chewy body. Quite bitter from the hopping, the rye lends a hand at keeping it lively with a spicy / biscuity tone. Citrus rind, tobacco, pine sap, pineapple guava, walnuts, peppery. Hoppy finish.

Tasty all around, in the raw a bit with particulates floating around and a less than refined flavor profile ... the latter is more welcomed though. A good quaff regardless.

Fluffy white two-finger head rises from an orange-yellow clouded brew. Leaves behind moderate lacing.

Slight pepper, medium citrus, oaty, grains are prominent... Nice use of rye.

Smooth, well malted brew with awesome supporting hops. A bit too much carbonation, but light bitterness is spot on. Sweetness is also hidden well. Piney, mild use of resinous hops, bitterness is relaxed and doesn't punch you in the mouth.

Highly recommended @ $3/16oz. One of the best Rye Brews I've ever had.

A: Hazy yellow orange with a thick white head. Lots of lacing down the glass.

S: A sharp, stinging hop bite to the scent along with a noticeable spicey rye presence. Lots going on here: pine, flowers, malt, some alcohol, and generic spice.

T: I like a rye ale that doesn't hide the rye and this certainly lives up to that description. The spicey/bitter rye flavors are right up front and present throughout the taste. Noticeable hop character as well as an ample malt body round this guy out. Really great.

M: Perfect! Very low carbonation, which is right on for a rye ale. You want that rye to shine, and is completely does here. Fairly hot and full bodied.

O: This is one of the best of its kind. I would compare it to Hop Rop Rye except perhaps a bit more intense of flavor. The mouthfeel is what makes this one special. Seek it out.

Got this from a buddy who lives in Denver. Interesting looking can from a brewery I haven't heard of despite going to Denver the last three years for GABF. Always good to find something new.

Poured into a pint glass, it is pretty cloudy. Not too bad. It doesn't foam up too much, in fact, I almost thought it may be a little flat, at first. I've had cans that made the trip from CO before do that. The head that settles in is thin, but doesn't disappear. It gives me nice layer of a creamy film over a cloudy, golden beer.

Smells citrusy and sweet.

Woe, that's way more bitter than I was picking up in the nose. It's an interesting mixture of flavoring and bittering hops. The bitter must be the Rye, but it's not as malty-sweet as I normally think of when I have Rye beer. It's like they upped the bitter hops to match the Rye (?) The citrusy-sweet flavoring hops could be a little stronger to balance that out, but I imagine they were going for something a little different, here.

Very full bodied. Not flat at all, like I initially feared. The bitterness and hoppy aroma seem to really fill this beer out.

Overall, a decent take on a Rye IPA. Not amazing, but different.

16 oz. can, no date on it or anything.

A: Hazy copper/bronze body. Hardly any head, even with a vigorous pour. Not a good sign.

S: Lots of rye malt, not much for hops.

T: I want more hops. Some nice rye flavor though.

M: Where is the carbonation? Horrible. Has the same mouthfeel as Newcastle Brown Ale. Disgusting.

O: Come on, Renegade. This cannot be your vision for this beer. Your Elevation was so good, but this is either a bad batch or just a bad beer.
