On tap at the Sweetwater location in the Atlanta airport. Pours a golden color. Fairly bitter with some rye spice and a touch of residual bready malt. Pretty drinkable, especially during a layover.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellowish color and a clear consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that dissipated after a fair amount of time. Pretty good lacing.

S: A sweet, enticing aroma of hops and light fruit.

T: Tasted of hops (an average amount), some light malt, and a good deal of fruit (seemed like a citrus element). The advertised rye was present, but not overwhelmingly so. A sweet, light, easy to like flavor.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: This is a solid beer that's very focused and really drinkable. A session beer if there ever was one.

Part of their 12 pack combo. Pours an okay size head. Color is a kind of a darker yellow, what I would expect when I think of rye. I smell a combo of rye, hops and malts. The tasted is rye up front with hops coming quickly and hanging behind with a touch of malts. The mouthfeel is decent. Overall I like this offering and think its the best of their 12 pack combo. One can taste the Sweetwater IPA backbone and because I like rye I'm really diggin this.

smell: pine, grapefruit,... black tea?

taste: rye bitterness, peppery, not overly malty or hoppy, well-balanced. bitter aftertaste.

mouth: very smooth, light carbonation, foamy feel.

overall: not bad, might just have another...

Poured into a nonic a chill hazed burnt orange with a frothy halfinger white head that left some broken lace as it settled.Aromas are pleasant enough but a little subdued,I pick up some orange and lemon notes along with some caramel/toffee.Bright and fresh citric hops on the palate over top of a sweet toffee that really stands out in the finish,the rye provides a litle sharpness but doesn't seem to play a huge role.A pretty good rye ipa it's got a real fresh citrusy flavor profile wich I liked.

Pours a orange yellow with a thumb sized cream colored head that falls slow and laces well.

Aroma is nice malt, spicy rye notes, good citrus hit orange and lemon light minty hints.

Taste is like the nose malt backbone with good spicy rye notes that blend well with the citrus hops. Orange tangerine with hints of mint and lemon that linger into finish with minty/rye notes kind of take over.

Mouthfeel around medium with medium level of carbonation.

Overall pretty decent as I find rye goes well with hops. Not the best rye out there but certainly drinkable and enjoyable. Would say overall I would pick this one up again for a change.
