Saucy indeed. Hops and rye are kicking on this one to create a smooth, yet boisterous brew. Nice spicy character to it. Full bodied. Robust.

3.8/5  rDev -10.2%

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Copper body. Clear. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Lots of rye. Light grapefruit. Some caramel and bready malt.

Taste - Grapefruit. Caramel sweetness. A little toasty. Rye is very prominent, especially in the finish. Blends with the bitter hop finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Very nice rye character. Definitely the highlight.

32 oz. growler filled a few days ago poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a slightly pale but glistening golden straw yellow into the glass. A one-finger head of eggnog-white foam with lots of sudsy bubbles in the middle dissipates at a purposeful pace, leaving a thin ring of lace around the glass and large bubbles on the surface. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is a sunset orange-red and almost completely clear, with a thick column of bubbles rising to the surface up the center.

S - Luscious, ripe, freshly cut grapefruit served in a pine forest. Hints of orange and lemon zest. Freshly sawed wood with a touch of dried flowers. In the background, medium toasted multi-grain bread fresh from the toaster and a touch of caramel occasionally poke through. It's a decently complex nose and a pleasure to linger over.

T - An exact match of the nose, freshly squeezed grapefruit envelopes the tongue. As it passes, the rye provides a roughened quality to the foundation of the toasted malts, along with a bit of spice. Hints of orange candy sugars and a drop of honey appear in the back-end in an attempt to provide some balance. A noticeable dried herbs and pine hops presence lingers in the finish and rules the tongue.

M - Moderately fizzy with respectable carbonation. Body is a bit on the thin side, but not watery. Structure is tight, with well-integrated components. Finish is almost pucker-dry and takes its time fading away.

O - This is a rather robust IPA, in the sense that the flavors are full and up-front and feature the hops throughout. The rye provides both a roughed-up aspect to the taste as well as a deeper quality to the malt background/foundation. The folks at Black Acre said it's their most popular beer, and that's understandable - this guy is ready to play middle linebacker for the ole alma mater. Looking for an IPA that's just a bit more tuned-up than a bucket full of hops dumped onto a pedestrian grain bill? Check this beer out.
