On tap at World of Beer in Raleigh. Served in a pint glass.

A - orange with a thin lacing of head

S - citrus, faint pepper, rye

T - opens with a big, peppery, rye character and finishes with a sweet, grapefruit, citrusy hop character; in the middle there is a broad spectrum of hop flavors - piny, spicy, herbal

M - medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth

This is a rather solid and balanced beer. The rye adds a nice dynamic. The hops are balanced and flavorful. Seven varieties of hops were used to make this beer and they all come through nicely. This is definitely worth a try. (585 characters)

on-tap, snifter treatment at the brewery

appearance: nice branded snifter (could do without the URL, but hey, they're new...), bright orange body, fluffy white cap

smell: citrusy hops, big sweet caramel core

taste: some spice from the rye but mostly structural support for the hop profile - oily pine and citrus, moderate bitterness, chewy caramel and dough. Good stuff - a nice introduction

mouthfeel: big-bodied, moderate bitterness

overall: straight out of the gates with the Rye DIPA - nice (499 characters)

Had at the grand opening. Double Rye IPA. Served from tap into a NoDa snifter. Pour red orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a very minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, rue, citrus hop, and sweet alcohol. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The rye on this one was definitely present. It had a nice bite but was balanced nicely with the citrus aspect going on. You can tell this is a slightly high ABV brew, but it isn't abrasive by any means. A definite must try. Tick. (686 characters)

On-tap, somewhere, while visiting Charlotte, July 2012:

The beer was served in a tulip glass and appeared a deep amber color and had a nice white thick head, not well retained, but faded into a thin ring. The beer gave off a thin rye aroma, nothing else. The beer had a nice, big rye backbone with a very nice pine hop. The beer had a medium feel, smooth, pretty easy to drink for a higher ABV beer. Good carbonation as head can easily be recreated. Overall, a pretty good beer. (479 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Golden amber, Finger of head and slight lacing

Smell: Hop-forward as expected, citrus.

Taste: A tasty rye IPA, but sweet mother is it bitter! I had this on the heels of a Porter, so my fault for setting it up for trouble. I like rye beer a lot, and want to try this again as a standalone

Mouthfeel: Solid, but then again, I was ready to send it down the hatch due to the bitterness.

I am not excited about this offering, yet I will try it again. (462 characters)
