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.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Golden orange with 2+ fingers of creamy, fluffy off-white head. Hazy with excellent retention and low carbonation.

Nose
Tangerine, grapefruit, pine and lemon. Hints of mango and Fruity Pebbles.

Taste
Grapefruit zest, Fruity Pebbles and lemon pith. Underlying notes of biscuit and spicy rye. Finishes with florals and pine resin with additional notes of rye sticking around.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, bitter, crisp and dry.

Overall
The hops and rye are represented well along with a thin malt backbone. A nice Rye IPA as long as you like them bitter and dry.
