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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.

Golden copper...small lingering bubbles lacing my chalice. Aroma of wheat, grass, rye. Flavors of a nice IPA with rye briteness, with touches of white pepper, pine, rosemary, sage, alcohol, and a hop and rye bitterness. There's also a sweetness like a peppermint candy with a touch of bitterness. Significant carbonation and body. I'll admit I've bought perhaps 10 growlers of this brew, and it's not the closest brewery to me in the Denver area. I used to go a few blocks away to Breckenridge for their 471 double IPA, and I still like it, but there's something about this brew, the spice-hop-rye balance that has body, strength, and tastiness. Very satisfying in the growler or at the brewery. I've not tries the cans yet.

Pint-sized can served cold into an imperial pint glass.

Ryeteous is a slightly hazy golden orange color with a good thick head on it. It settles slowly and leaves some of that great stick IPA lace on the glass.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy with nice lemon citrus notes.

Flavor is really well done with good balance and drinkability for a hoppy beer. The rye isn't overpowering but lends a slight spicy quality to the beer. The hops impart great flavor in addition to the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.

Overall a really excellent rye IPA. Well balanced, easy drinking, and full of fresh hop flavor.

Thanks to SalukiAlum for picking this delicious-sounding beer off my wants list & dropping in as a recent extra. 16 oz. can, no evident bottle dating.

Poured into a big snifter, tje beer is a slighly hazed amber. Blast of pine & earthy rye on the pour that dies down in a hurry, & can't be easily teased back, even with violent swirling.

Ryeteous Rye IPA is like a rye IPA with the mute button floored. Taste is gentle, spring-rain earthy rye, nip of bittering hops...and quiet. I don't mean mute like subtle, but like the beer is rather dull. Goes down easily enough.

Very average, whether judged as a rye beer or an IPA. Given the clever packaging, I was expecting an aggressive beer, & it falls far short on that measure. Decent enough.

Soft, faintly hazy amber-orange body with a fine-looking white head; great rings down the glass. Sweet and spicy scent; lemon and orange; floral character. Light tasting caramel malt backbone; a bit bready; citrus fruit notes, melon; nicely intense yet balanced hop bitterness. Light-bodied; rather effervescent at first but smooths out after a while ; clean, dry finish.

A delicious rye IPA. Nice mixture of rye spiciness and malt grain flavors with a strong, rich, pungent hop aroma and tasty bitterness.
