A rye IPA. .A lovely deep dark amber. Brilliant clarity, virtually no visible carbonation. Billowing pale off white head and copious lacing. A light covering remains all the way down. Nose is sweet and tinged with caramel and toffee. Spicy rye and alcohol. Yeast esters and some toasted nuttiness. Piney hops. Great taste. Sweet chewy malt core brings toasted grains, cocoa and smooth mocha flavors. Rye malt combines with hop oil to add spice and pepper. Fruity English style yeast adds juicy cantaloupe. Finish is crisp and dry with hop oil mild grapefruit. Lingering oil and spice. Remarkably supple over my tongue for a beer of this weight. Light creamy carbonation with just enough zip to tickle lightly. Crisp swallow. A hearty, refreshing IPA. Nice job Jim!

The good I only paid $2.75 for the single. The bad is the reviews do not look very promising. I drink on!

A - Plenty of opaque colored head on this one well over an inch atop a clear deep amber hue beer. No sediment.
S - Smells of mild spicy rye. Some pithy hops and a touch of sweet malts. Nothing exciting.
T - Its not bad just not very exciting. Taste of old hops mixes with the rye to deliver a lackluster IPA experience. Somewhat sweet with a sort of balanced taste. Its just an average Rye IPA.
M - Light to medium in Body its easy to drink

Overall it's not bad just kind of bland. Like the cover art though.

Light red-orange brew with a coarse separated cream head.

Earthy and lime-y hops with a touch of pine. Lightly zesty, some rye malt spice, and a sweet treacle malt backing.

Rye spice gives it some burliness in the finish, but the elephant in the room is the lack of freshness. Too much stale hop. Pine and pith can be tasted, but nothing is elevated.
