The Temperance Restless Rye IPA was available at the "Brew At The Bridge" beerfest in Oswego, IL. The beer poured a nice orangish, slightly hazy, color with white head that laced. The scent was citrus typ hop with waifs of pine. The taste was nice and dry with good pine and citrus hop foundation. The mouthfeel is light to medium in body with great carbonation. Overall this beer is a winner and should be tried by those that like rye ipas.

On tap at Smallbar Logan Square, review from written notes.
A dry-hopped rye pale ale.

Opaque orange body, looks like pulpy orange juice. Creamy smooth textured foam on the surface, that settles into a lacy veil with lasting retention.

Mellow aroma, some graininess and dried bitter orange peel.

Light bitterness, peppery spice. A smooth rye beer with moderate hop character. Creamy feel, smooth and earthy. Medium body with mellow carbonation. Flavorful but not especially distinctive. Seemed almost like it was on nitro and the flavors were somewhat muted.

Overall enjoyable, it's not especially unique but well put together.

Hazy orange-brown, white head with good lace, plentiful bubbles. Aroma has a good melange of tropical fruits, spicy rye, touch of wet wood pulp that slides towards a buttery note that doesn't entirely fit in but is still pleasant. The taste is more one-note, and also a bit watered down. It still has good spice, bitter orange peel and pine, slight earthy note, and an aftertaste of those more succulent tropical fruits (mango, papaya). Feel is coarse from harsh carbonation, but once that dissipates it is full bodied and could even be considered smooth.
The nose had an impressive amount of great tropical hop notes made even bolder by the spice of the malt, but the flavor couldn't back up that wonderful balance and became just another in-your-face rye-enhanced pale ale. Some fine tuning could make this a great beer.
