4.05/5 rDev +12.2%
This was a great beer that was very drinkable and provided a satisfying taste. It delivered much more character then the other beer i tried from Double Trouble, Hops & Robbers.
Appearance- I was expecting a dark red but it was more a dark gold with a lot of sediment floating about. A typical unfiltered appearance.
Smell- Hints of hops, grains and rye with a subtle citrus aroma
taste- strong rye taste that was almost bread like with subtle undertones of orange, pine, and hops. Surprisingly enjoyable without being too strong or hoppy. Sweet but not not too sweet with the hops and rye taking priority.
mouthfeel- slightly heavy with a hoppy taste that wasn't too overwhelming. Just enough carbonation that revealed a sweet, rye tasted
overall- Excellent beer. Although the description advertises this beer towards hop heads it is actually rather drinkable and appealing to the average beer drinker. The taste is is much more complex than Hops & Robbers but still very easy to drink and not too strong. I would recommend to anyone just starting to explore the diversity and complexity of craft beer. I would buy again!

A: Hazy copper with some carbonation, 2 fingers of creamy beige head. Good lacing.
S: Malty, orange, a little pine.
T: Heavy on the pine, hot pepper, malt back bone, dry orange citrus taste, white grapefruit bitterness, doughy malt comes in again. Light fruitiness.
M: Medium, somewhat resinous body, medium carbonation, dry finish.
O: Really delicious rye beer. I really like this one, and it stands up to the name. Very much one I would have when in the mood. Dry and somewhat warming, would be best in the Fall when this is supposedly released. However I got it in spring, so I am glad it was still around to grab this year.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.85 473ml can. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass
A- Very good. Pours nicely with a good 2" head that thins to a film within a minute or two, as expected from an IPA. Unusually brown, must be the rye.
S- Pretty good. Hint of coriander.
T- Very good. Touch bitter as expected again from an IPA.
M- Dry and tart. Enough said
O- Very good. Will buy again. A bit on the heavy side but very good.
This nice example of an IPA went well with... Chicken balls and fried rice.

473ml can poured into a pint glass. ABV 6.1%.
A - Poured a hazy copper with an thick off white foamy head. Head reduced to a thin cap and lots of lacing.
S - Grains, rye, floral, some citrus.
T - Some caramel, rye bread, citrus, bitter finish.
M - Medium-heavy body, medium-heavy carbonation, slick, sticky resin, zesty finish.
O - Another rye beer meets IPA concoction. Not as good as Cameron's Rye Pale Ale but a decent beer none the less.

Copper/red colour, 1.5 ring of off white head, good lace as well. Smell is a mix of toasty malts and caramel, spicy rye, toffee, buttered bread as well as quite a bit of earthy/floral hop. Taste is more forward with rye, spicy with bitter earthy/floral hop flavours, sweet malt mid palate but stays fairly bitter throughout, spicy/hoppy aftertaste. Medium carbonation, lightish medium body, a little on the thin side. Pretty nice, drinks well and fairly flavourful, something I would pick up once in a while but probably not something I will keep my fridge full of, probably the best beer I have had from these guys.
