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!

Had it today, 3/21/14, for the first time in over a year. I can't believe that the same issue I had then with the beer I had now again.

Simply, it's not good. Very poor and thick after taste, with a similar smell that matches that taste. Nothing good about this beer especially compared to its peers.

Overall not impressed and there are many beers I'd choose first over this next time. I wish they would cure that poor after taste of their beers.

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.

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.

A - pours a corn, straw gold with a fairly consistent head of about 1/2 inch. Light for an IPA, hazy.

S - fair smell of rye and hops. Nothing out of the ordinary.

T - instant taste of rye with a hop bitterness that lasts throughout. Spice and floral characteristics of the beer are evident.

M - light-medium body that sticks to the tongue. Well carbonated.

O - a frothy rendition of the style with a strong, but not overpowering hop presence that nevertheless dominates the beer. I could do with a greater malt presence and more distinct hop aroma, but this is a decent beer.

Rye IPA is one of my favorite styles. I love the taste and the feel you get with these beers. This one is good but not my favorite. It is a good quality beer, but the Hop Rod Rye by Bear Republic is my standard for this style and Divided Sky does not live up to that level of sweet rye taste, creamy feel and hops of a good IPA.
