Poured into a can glass. Pours orange red with a large fluffy white head. Smells of citrus and grassy hops. Tastes of citrus and piney hops, little rye taste as well. Beer is light bodied and nicely carbonated and nice finish. Overall a very good beer.

The rye does well, but the malt backbone is a bit to much caramel and I feel like it takes away from the hop taste profile in the beer

Sampled at Snallygaster 2014. Freaking great IPA with just the right amount of rye.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Deep thick three to tall four finger head, fluffy and creamy with a whipped up lovely top, looking thick and rich. Gorgeous head sits on a perfect amber copper red, with a little clarity and ultra fine carbonation. Great looking brew.

Excellent aromas and bouquet of the beer, even when poured. Creamy notes of caramel and biscuit like malt. Slightly hinting vanilla with a nice mellow citrus hop fruity character. Not getting a lot of spicy rye character which is fine with me, as that tends to detract for me. Smells delicious.

Good lord is this ever creamy. This is coming off like a spiced English Bitter with strawberry fruit tones. Rye malt definitely kicking on the finish with a good grainy and airy spicy character. Lots of cream sweetness upfront, sort of reminds me alot like Tetleys.

Overall very nice, but just a little bit too sweet on my end. But very well made beer.
