look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

From 22 oz bottle via Letspour.
Poured in a medium Duvel tulip glass.
Pours copper with small head and significant lace.
Aroma of grassy hops, sweet malts and floral hops.
Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of grassy hops, white unsweetened grapefruit juice, cream of tartar, robust malts, rye. Overall quite flavorful, lots of malt body, significant bitterness but good malts to balance this fine brew. An interesting dry and sweet finish...tasty.

Thanks to nate321 for hitting my joy-buzzer with this extra from a brewery that's new to me. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

Pour is a hazed & confused dark orange with carbonation appropriate to an adult beverage called 'beer'. Nose is heavy on the spicy rye with a side salad of fruits, loaded up with oranges & tangerines.

Reuben's Imperial Rye IPA is like a hook echo of the Road Warrior I've been slugging down the past few days. Just like RW this has a big, thick mouthfeel that's fairly rare on the rye side of things. Dragon-size bite of spicy rye, but then it veers off into a southern orchard, bringing the fruity nose of oranges, tangerines, & finishing up with a touch of pine cone bitterness. Alcohol is noticeable. Enjoying drinking this one.

Very good rye that peaks with the river delta thick mouthfeel. Very good.
