Notes/Commercial Description:
This West-Coast style Rye IPA was made with legendary punk band NOFX and is sure to stick. Brewed with spicy rye and a boatload of Simcoe and Falconer's Flight hops, this is one dank pale ale.

Appearance: Deep orangish red. A finger plus of a white head that has a decent retention. leaves a bit of a sticky lacing on the sides. pretty hazy but not quite opaque. 4/5

Smell: Citrus hops, spicy rye. Some toasty malts. 3.75/5

Taste: opens up with a nice spicy rye bread with a little bit of caramel sweetness to it. mostly citrus hops with just a little bit of herbal coming through. a little bit of toasty grains plays in the background. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: medium body. quite a bit of rye and bitterness lingering behind. a little bit sticky. 4/5

Overall: a nicely done rye ipa. a bit too much rye to be refreshing and just enough sweetness to give a slight balance to the rye.

I gotta get a picture uploaded and approved, but I have multiples of this CAN - one in support of The CANQuest (TM) which will go to Jeff Lebo when CANsumed for his CAN collection; one for my buddy, NOFX Fletch, who loves the band, but hates AIPAs; and one for JenRay, who loves IPAs but CAN't find this one.

From the CAN: "A Rye India Pale Ale"; "A Collaboration Between NOFX [&] Champion Brewing Company"; "65 IBU, 7% Alc. by Vol. This West-Coast style Rye IPA was made with legendary punk band NOFX and is sure to stick. Brewed with spicy rye and a boatload of Simcoe and Falconer's Flight hops, this is one dank pale ale."

Sorry, kids, but there was no way that I was going to perform an inverted Glug with a 24-oz. CAN following the Crack! I went with a heavy-handed pour, instead, and still got two-plus fingers of tawny head with moderate retention. The head fell as I was typing and cuing up some accompanying music, but loads of lacing remained in its wake. Color was Amber to Deep Amber/Light Copper (SRM = > 9, < 13) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a minty quality that may or may not have been dank, but it left no question that hops were involved in its production. Mouthfeel seemed to be a bit thin. Who cares?!? Get a load of them hops, baby! Hops for days, yo! The taste was like the music - loud and in your face. It's like the patch says, "Punks don't die, they just get old and move to the back!" This is a beer for CANmitted types, young or old, but you gotta like the style. All of a sudden, the finish erupts with a punch of caramel malt out of nowhere! It's like being in the mosh pit and some random skinhead suddenly punches you in the face because he mistaken thinks that you are Jewish. And people wondered why P-12 and I joined the Suicidals ... Cholos vs. Skins. Man, this beer is punk as hell and it's really getting a lot of attention from the local scene. Okay, novelty aside, as a rye IPA, it was pretty good and worth a try. From a collectible CAN and/or a punk rock standpoint, it should be sought out/traded for, given the enthusiastic interest. On that note, I GOT!

Yes, it's sticky... And it comes with a nice mild spicy character. This is very sessionable - even at 7%.

Before this, I don't think that I ever had an official beer of a band - check that off the list.
