Flavor begins with a non-specific citrus flavor, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no obvious rye spiciness

A: Pours a clear amber with a thick, creamy white head that leaves a substantial amount of lace as it recedes.
S: Gentle, somewhat muted aromas of caramel, toffee, rye bread, biscuits, cream, herbs, lemon, and orange are present on the nose.
T: Notes of herbs, grass, lemon, lime, and orange vie against maltier flavors of caramel, toffee, sweet cream, biscuit, black pepper, and rye bread. The finish is short and simple with notes of caramel, rye bread, herbs, and lemon.
M: Medium in body, creamy, velvety, and smooth. Carbonation is gentle. This ale is very easy to drink and has a wonderfully soft, smooth texture, but it needs to be slightly better carbonated.
O: Not bad at all. I really like the way the malt and hop flavors separate on the entry and then integrate on the finish. It really shows the drinker how a beer like this is put together. As Rye IPAs go, this one is not really groundbreaking or extreme in any way, but it is very solidly crafted, very approachable, and very flavorful. I like it.

A- Hazy amber color with a thick, creamy, 2 finger head. Awesome sticky lacing with great trailing. Lacing holds on tight. I don't think it can get much better than this.
S- Grapefruit, tropical fruits, rye, pine and caramel. Strong aromas that mix together nicely.
T- Grapefruit, orange, pine, citrus rind and rye over a nice malt backbone. Rye compliments the flavors and brings them all together very well. Sweet citrus, pine, citrus rind aftertaste. Awesome.
M- Medium to heavy body. Super smooth with a nice oily coating left behind. Dry finish with lingering bitterness.
O- This is one of the the best Rye IPAs I've had. When its fresh, every aspect being graded is flirting with perfection. As it ages, the citrus fades and the rye becomes more prominent, but its still enjoyable. The lower ABV makes it dangerously sessionable, as well.

Deep, cloudy orange with a clingy white head. Reeks of dank citrus hops and rye spice. Tastes like it smells. The sweet malt and citrus battle it out with the rye spice and sharp bitterness. A very raw, in your face beer yet balanced too. Very well done.
