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!

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and rye flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid rye presence that is slightly better in the smell.

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.

Appearance: Light amber/gold with about 2 fingers of ivory head.

Aroma: Semi pungent earthy tones, with slight citrus notes.

Taste: Large hop profile upfront, with a noticeable lingering bitterness and slight peppery rye bite.

Feel: Medium-light consistency.

Overall: Pleasant appearance/aroma, semi overpowering rye presence, however easily drinkable 6.5% Room for improvement but job well done.

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.
