22oz bottle poured into a large mug. If there's a date on it I don't see it.

Pours very slightly hazy, golden amber, with a pretty big slightly off white head and lots of carbonation. Smell is...honest reaction: Smells like a brewery. Musty, bready, yeasty, and hops. Seriously, if you've ever walked into an active brewery, this is what it smells like.

Taste is very rye, nice hoppy presence, very rye. Some honey sweetness, some honeysuckle.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin. Overall, it's a fairly good beer, but it's not great.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. A medium gold to light coppery ambe with a healthy two finger off-white head with great retention and lot of lacing. Aroma of candi malt, grassy and citrus hops and a light rye tartness, lemon. Flavor follows aroma with neutral, but supportive malt, pleasant lemony citrus hops with some light herbal elements, light rye and associated light tartness, lemony citrus hop bitterness lingers in the finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. As advertised, a nice blend of American IPA and rye ale, leaning towards a lemon citrus IPA with rye flavors adding a some adventure and tartness. My taste runs to a stronger malt character and maybe more rye influence, but on an above average warm evening, this was a pleasant easy drinking rye IPA.

Not much on aroma but the spicy grainy taste is right on the money. A little yeast in the amber brew with a frothy pour in the big chalice. Nice mouthfeel and sudsy

Resiny and tangy. Clean and well made, like everything from Bellevue. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at 99 bottles in Federal Way.
