Huge roasted smoky rye aspects to this beer that I am really digging... Almost porter like in places, this beer is both unusual and quite delicious... Had the look of a red with the spiciness of a rye and the hop punch of a moderate IPA...

Very unique and quite well done... Long slow smooth hop finish that fades into rye earthiness and cocoa...

Very very nice beer...

S - Roasted malts, caramel, barley, wheat-grains.

T - Roasted malts, some hop bitterness. Very malty.

D - Good carbonation with a medium body.

O - Roasted is nice, I wish there was more of the IPA side.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Poured a cola color with good carbonation leaving a nice frothy tannish cap. Head retention was good and some spotty lacing was observed after it settled and as I drank.

S: Not much to speak of. Some rye, faint grains and chocolate with a piney hop bitterness

T: Initial hop bitterness overruns the beer. The flavors of chcocolate, caramel and rye seem to be afterthought. The finish is a lingering, dry hop bite

M: Medium body. Well carbonated, somewhat creamy but the bitterness just sordove lingers on the mouth and tongue providing a not so desirable sensation for this style

O: Not among my favorite Reubens beers thus far, nor is this a prime example of a Winter Warmer, or a Rye Winter Warmer...in a category of its own for sure.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass. The label says "Roasted Rye IPA" and "winter warmer India pale ale". This beer evidently is trying to fit a lot of styles in!

Appearance: chocolatey amber-brown with a light haze and a relatively strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy tan foam. I like the look of it!

Smell: toasty and lightly spicy with earthy and citrusy hops. The rye underneath really gives the hops a bite. These guys know their way around rye, I'll tell you that.

Taste: toasty and biscuity, almost like an amber ale, but with that piquant rye character and a fairly high hop bitterness. This type of thing is not usually my style, but I find it working for me now. Maybe because it's 38 degrees outside despite being 3 in the afternoon? Who knows.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a good creaminess for an IPA.

Overall: it doesn't taste roasted, it's too malty for an IPA, but it is definitely a good rye beer. Absolutely worth a try if you like this particular grain.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a dark molasses colored brown with a dense silky light tan colored head. Looks like a Scottish ale in the glass.

S: Smell is faint but complex with a lot going on. Initially hoppy, finishing with sweet chocolate, caramel, and vanilla.

T: Hop bitterness upfront. Sweet Caramel, toffee, and vanilla.

M: Medium body. Moderately light carbonation. Creamy. Oily. Bitter with some boozy warmth.

O: Definitely a unique beer. Drinks much more like a winter warmer than an IPA, as noted in the name on the bottle. Very complex, but not very reminiscent of an IPA. Glad I got to try this one.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew pint glass. Pours a hazy medium chestnut brown with a fine one finger light brown head. Aroma of biscuit malt, rye, slightly nutty with light citrus hops. Flavor is an excellent blend of toasted and biscuit malt with light rye sourness, finishing with satisfying dry malt and lingering citrus hops bitterness. Great mouth feel with light creaminess. A very nice malty ale with a well integrated rye twist. Verging on old ale territory, but bringing in spiciness from the rye. I really liked Reuben's imperial rye IPA, but this is even better, well integrated and interesting.

100+ IBU, "Citrus, Chocolate, Smooth, Bitterness"

Reuben loves some Rye - while i'm partial to the imperial rye, this is a pretty fierce pint as well. Big spicy rye loaf - not for the faint of heart, bitter citrus, dry cocoa. Paired nicely with a kickass falafel from "A Taste of Istanbul"
