Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JoEBoBpr on 12-21-2011

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!

12oz can, no apparent freshness date
A - amber body with a creamy ivory head that dissipates to a foam rather quickly while leaving some lacing on the glass
S - fruity, spicy & earthy rye, faint grass
T - bitter and hop forward with grass, pine, grapefruit, biscuity malt with the earthy and spicy rye adding extra complexity
M - medium body, finishes bitter and very dry
O - pretty good rye IPA, but doesn't stand out amongst the crowd.

Served from the can in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Doesn't that mean rain's a-comin'? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises ruby red grapefruit zest, caramel, light rye spice, and a bit of pine resin. The taste holds notes of resin, grapefruit rind, light caramel, and spicy greens. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice RIPA, nothing exactly special, but something I wouldn't really mind having again.

Poured from can into tulip glass.
Very little white head. No lacing. Very carbinated.
It came out clear with a light gold color.
Very strong smell. I have never smelled an IPA like this must be the rye. I would say overall smell is sweet.
Tasted a little harsh at first but no over taste. I think the rye stands alone in this beer.
A bit on the watery side but easy going down.
Pretty basic beer that did not really stand out. Not bad just not great.

poured with a small white head that doesn't really stick around. pine and floral hops on the nose. big burst of citrus and floral notes up front followed by a spicy and caramel rye that melts or morphs into a dry tangerine ending. feel is a little thin but not watery. overall a really nice rye ipa. Local for me and excited to share as im a sucker for rye
