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!

Bomber poured into a Duvel tulip. Slightly hazy body that is a golden color with a small orange hue. Big 3-finger off-white head that has good retention leaving a bit of lacing.

Nice hop aroma - pine resin and grass. A bit of citric notes follow, but very little malt or rye in the aroma.

The flavor is a nice bump up from the aroma. Plenty of pine and citrus hop flavors that combine nicely with the spicy rye. Solid malt backbone brings it all together.

Medium mouthfeel and no notice of the alcohol. Overall, a very good Rye IPA. Would definitely seek this out again, and might consider buying it regularly if available in bottles or cans.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bottle.

Pours a nice clear and bright orange copper color with a thin white head that is quite dense.

Aroma is of herbal and grassy hops. Quite intense dank and citrus notes with some nice malty and bready backbone.

Flavor starts off with some intense bitterness. Citrus coating hop juice. Nice rye spice notes mixed in with the intense hop notes. There is some bready notes in there as well but th intense bitterness rules. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean with a dry bitter finish.

Overall, pretty delicious IPA. Nice and herbal with good citrus bitterness.

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.

22 oz. bottle. No freshness info, and it says to "drink fresh". Hmmm. Phish is a pretty awful band, but I'll try not to let it sway my opinion of the beer. There are lots of poorly named beers out there.

A: Light color, opaque body. Nice head, with a strong pour. Good retention and. Lots of bubbles floating up to the top.

S: American hops, I detect the centennial in there. Citrus, rye malt. Nice aroma.

T: Bitter hop bite, but not too strong. Sour grapefruit notes. Rye flavor lingers around a while. Pretty good balance.

M: Well-carbonated, light bodied for the style. A little watery.

O: Solid offering from this STL brewery. Not special enough to set it apart from its many peers though.

Up from Jacksonville FL and stopped in at the brewery.

A: half finger head on a clear golden with very slight amber hue body.

S: candied orange, syrup, floral and pungent hops

T: the rye comes through nicely in the finish. Up front resin, tart citrus and earthy hops dominate. The caramel malt base is a mild contributor.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: this is a decent beer. The rye is well applied and it's nicely hopped. This one isn't very complex but it's still memorable for the rye presence and how well it's applied.

A: Mostly clear copper in color. Forms a moderate creamy white head that leaves a shit-ton of lacing on the way down.

S: Aroma is fairly muted, but I am able to pull some notes of caramel malts mixed with primarily citrus hops and some pine hops to a lesser extent.

T: Moderate, dry caramel malts. A bit of peppery rye. Grapefruit and citrus pith. Finish is a bit thin and watery, but does offer up some more toasty rye flavor.

M: On the thinner side of medium; a bit thin for the style. Moderate bitterness. Good carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer. Not a great beer, either, but didn't have any problems killing off a growler.
