Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer brings together tow of our favorite ingredients; hops and rye - serious hops up front provide a pungent, floral, and citrus character. We use centennial, Columbus, and Cascades in this hop lovers dream. The rye provides a slightly spicy flavor and a full mouth-feel. Divided Sky pours straw in color with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, and pine. Drink fresh!

4.21/5  rDev +8.8%

a beautiful clean copper pour with a perfect 2 fingers of head. barely any lacing, which is weird for an ipa and especially one with rye!

smells of pine, grapefruit, garlic/herbs..this is a wonderfully fresh smelling hop bomb!

the taste is sweet up front with an herbal fresh cut grass like flavor.. then comes a nice spicy bitterness of grapefruit peel.. a very awesome flavor profile, but really all just hops! i get a slight hint of what would be the rye malt, but the hops are way forward in this one.. and well, hey - i'm not about to complain!

medium body with moderate amount of carbonation. surprisingly refreshing for a hop bomb of an ipa. i wouldn't mind trying a less fresher bottle to see the effect of the actual grain bill on the palate! definitely a solid beer by a brewery i've never heard of up until now.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a huge creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is rye malts with some sweet bread and not a lot of hop.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with spicy rye and peppery grassy hops with a good amount of bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation.

Overall, a decent rye IPA. The rye is prominent with good bitterness but not a lot of hop flavor.

Cloudy light brown in appearance. A thin layer of foam across the top of the glass. The nose is a fantastic blend of piney aroma hops with a twist of rye. I'll be honest, it smells amazing! Very light in terms of mouthfeel. Pine like hops on the forefront and followed by that slight tickle of rye on the tongue. Well executed. The best offering thus far by this brewery and many of theirs are good.

Unfortunately I think the bottle my neighbor picked up was a bit over primed and it affected everything...taste, scent, mouthfeel, etc. The beer poured a hazy orangish yellow with foamy big head that did not leave much lacing. The scent carried some citrus and pine....but mostly that overprimed blah. The taste was more malty that hoppy....meaning there was a sweetness that was trying to balance the hop. The mouthfeel was medium in body and the had big carbonation. Overall it was ok...I would definitely try it again if given the chance.

Pours a hazed & pretty much gushing straw color with crazy amounts of pearl colored head. Never cleared up, crazy head retention & lacing

S: Peppery & floral notes, grassiness & breadiness

T: Follows the nose, nice malty sweetness up front, grapefruit & pineyness as well. Dryness, more grapefruit, breadyness, plus peppery rye as this warms. Finishes with grapefruit, peppery rye, pine, caramel & woody dryness

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, nice balance

Easy to drink, some rough edges, but a nice rye slanted IPA & one I would buy again if in sixer format

Clear light copper body with an inch of white head and nice spotty lacing... poured into a tulip.

The smell is bready with some light citrus tones.

The hops are grapefruit and orange and it has a pretty strong biscuit malt holding it together with a faint rye finish.

Mouthfeel is clean and crisp with good body.

Overall, I was pretty impressed with my first beer from 4 hands.
