3.84/5 rDev +5.5%
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.

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
