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

Bottled April 16, 2014 ... A Black Rye India Pale Ale

A - Pours a murky brown to borderline black body. It has a one finger light khaki head with great lacing/retention.

S - Smattering of rye, black malts, roast character and hops in the background.

T - Pine hops hit you right off the bat. The rye and roasted malts come through to greet you and then you're left with a bitter finish.

M - The body seems a little thin and the carbonation lacking. Smooth body, just a bit weak.

O - I dig it! The rye along with the roasted malts and IPA character really mesh well.

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

Appearance: Too much foam on the pour but the ecru head settles in at four inches, capping the cloudy root beer colored liquid; not surprising that the retention is great as is the lacing

Smell: Burnt rye toast, tobacco, earthy tones and a hint of pine

Taste: Burnt rye toast and tobacco with a hint of underlying sweetness that doesn't quite verge on caramel; in the mid-palate, the hops present pine and earthy/woody tones and perhaps a hint of mint; spicy rye elements emerge in the finish along with a return to the malt flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A black rye IPA...now that's creative; a little too burnt in the malt bill and some problems with carbonation (that didn't impact the mouthfeel, fortunately) are slight demerits from an otherwise fine beer
