3.7/5 rDev -0.8%
Poured slightly hazy and golden. A small white head with minimal lacing. Aroma is tangerine and sweet orange on a soda cracker. Flavor does have a touch of spice on the finish with some grain and caramel malt mid palate. This drink works its way from the nose to the front of the tongue and back through the back of your throat in a deliberate and tasty fashion. The rye is unmistakeable and mutes the bitterness, smoothing out the finish as well. A tasty and highly drinkable brew. Medium texture with average carbonation.

Grabbed one on my way through Atlanta Airport at their Draft House at
Terminal B. This IPA shows a clear, deep amber color with a modest white top and
similar lacing. The aroma is very nice with solid citrus and a hint of rye
grain along with a touch of caramel malt. The flavor brings an immediately
satisfying idea of crisp lemon/grapefruit hop, and a notable dry rye wheat
element. Nice graininess while offering lots of hop bite along with some orange,
fruit sweetness. The body is just about medium with a fine but very effective
carbonation that makes for a lively feel that works for this tasty, refreshing

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.

poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass:
appearance: good 1" head, disappeared quickly.
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...
