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.

Had this on tap at Max's recently during the beer's release, then later at the brewery.

Poured on draft to a tasting glass. Pours a burnt orange color, with a minimal amount of off white head. Smell is of hops, juiciness, grapefruit, and some orange. Taste is similar though this is where the hops really come through. Also get some caramel and rye notes. Overall a decent beer and one I'd seek out from Union again.

The beer is listed as follows:
Rye baby IPA ain't for no square! Brewer with floor malted English Marris Otter and hefty charge of rye malts this beer brings a spicy malt presence to the scene, but its the hops that are the stars of this Ale. We hopped Rye Baby with copious amounts of Chinook and Simcoe hops and then dry hopped it with a blend of the two to give it an amazing hop character that will make you the happiest juvenile delinquent in Baltimore! We think Rye Baby is a delicious beer that you'll be burning inside to drink, and if that's a crime we'll stand convicted!!
