look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Pours dark orange bordering on brown. The big, rocky head recedes in short order but musters up plenty of foam patches on the glass. Sweet fruitiness, piney, eucalyptus hops and toffee in the nose. Moderate hops up front in the taste quickly get taken over by bready, mollasses maltiness and a subtle spicy rye character. Some banana and phenolic yeast flavor in the back. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a near creamy, active carbonation. Light bitterness and some herbal, spicyness in the shortish finish.

A nice Rye Pale Ale. Could have a bit more rye and hop character, but worth trying.

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.

Food Pairing

This nice example of an IPA went well with... Chicken balls and fried rice.

Enjoy

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.

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!

Can: Poured a light clear amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and limited lacing. Aroma of light piney hoppy notes with light spicy rye notes. Taste is also dominated by light piney hoppy notes with dry rye note with light grainy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. OK but there is really nothing memorable here.
