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.

Aroma: Bold American hops. Very sweet crystal malt. Some darker malt is present, slightly roasty.

Appearance: Light copper, just a touch of haze. Head is pale white, good retention.

Taste: Interesting flavors at work here. Some dark roasty malts, lots of crystal. Some funky spice, chili pepper. Hops are there, but not overwhelming. Very little citrus, pine and bitter floral notes.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Slick and oily. Finishes mildly dry from all the hops and spice.

Overall: Not the typical double IPA. Bold flavors all around, although pleasant and savory aren't the first words that come to mind.

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.

Appearance: Arrives in a snifter with a small cap atop the copper color liquid; streaks and strands of lace

Smell: Caramel and pine

Taste: Caramel and pine, up front, with the spicy rye flavors acting as a counterpoint to the malty sweetness; in fact, after the swallow, the caramel is obliterated by the hops and rye, providing a dry and bitter finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: While I like my IPAs to have a little less sweetness, the way this beer develops makes for an enjoyable drink

3.68/5  rDev -10.2%

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.
