3.53/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Slightly hazy. golden straw colored. Momentary half inch head melts to a ring.

Mostly malt sweetness in the aroma. The hops have certainly faded, since this beer is not at its peak freshness. But I am picking up some floral hop aroma

More of the same in the flavor, with an added spiciness from the rye malt. Significant bitterness accentuated by the rye. Decent flavor. Nothin special though.

Carbonation feels nice, as well as the body of the beer. The finish is dry, bitter, and a little rough on the tongue for my taste. But not as bad as some other rye beers.

I feel like this beer would be much better fresh, so I won't knock it too much. But, I wasn't very impressed overall.

Seeing as how I was a fan of Southern Tier's 2X Rye, I decided to give this rye IPA a try.

Disappointment.

To be honest, I was looking for more of a hops-blast since this is an IPA. I am thankful it isn't so bitter it puckers my mouth, and all the rye and malts do make a nice flavour. It just wasn't what I was looking for in a rye IPA.

3.35/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle with a drink by 7.15.14 date on the side. Pretty sure this was one of the last barrels brewed as Sweetwater announced its retirement a few months back

A - Bronze with some clarity, 1 finger of head and sticky lace left on the glass.

S - Rye, spices and orange spices. Bitter hops

T - Bitter hops and orange zest. Lots of Rye. Its not really working for me...

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated. Average...

O - Points for being a different type of IPA, but not nearly as good as their classic IPA.
