A rye IPA brewed with all Simcoe and 25% rye.

Pours a hazy caramel red hue with a substantial off-white head. A good 3/4 inch head floats to the top using a mildly aggressive pour. The lacing is great...I like the way this beer looks.

I get a toffee laden grapefruit scent which is subdued. Some notes of pine and floral bouquet wants to come out but it is hidden. I think the aroma is the weak point of this beer.

Upfront, grapefruit and orange zest greet my palate. Immediately, a substantial rye and caramel malt backbone steps in to curb the citrus hit. Toward the backend, the citrus hop meld bitters the tongue with a piney citrus rind bitterness that lingers.

The non-aggressive carbonation helps coat my palate with an oily, buttery texture. The resulting feel is medium full with some drying in the end.

This is a solid drinker that satisfies the hop head without over stimulating the senses. I enjoy it and would buy again!

Serving type: on-tap
