First off I love Rye IPA's. This one was excellent with a very pronounced rye flavor with all the hops you would expect from an IPA. In a tasting of 22 beers this was my favorite.

On-tap at Meridian Pint, Washington, DC (back in March):

First off...loved this beer. Big fan of the Rye/IPA combo. The beer appeared a darker, hazy amber/orange color with a thick, creamy white head that was very well retained. The beer gave off a nice pine hop aroma and the taste had a nice rye flavor, but was a bit overpowered by the citrus hops, instead of being more complimentary, but I still found the flavor very enjoyable. The beer had a good feel to it, chewy, but not too heavy, with a dry aftertaste. Overall, I wish that I could get this beer in Georgia, but the next time that I see it, I am definitely going to buy one.

On tap in a pint glass.

A-Poured a dark copper color with a one-finger head, off-white, streaky lacing. This beer looks solid and inviting.

S- Prominent citrus hop aroma, all the goodies: grapefriut, orange rind.

T- More citrus, like the smell. The rye malt and spices show up to round out its big flavor.

M- Dry rye finish with lingering hop bitterness. Some chewiness. A healthy hop-driven kick.

O-Strong effort here results in an effective blend. Tasty and drinkable.
