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!

Came in a Sam Adams IPA variety pack.

Appearance- amber color, thin head, nice lacing

Smell- rye, malt

Taste- rye, very light flavor of hops

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- I thought it was pretty good. Not the best but still decent. I would definitely drink it again.

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.

12oz bottle from the Hopology Mix 24 pack. Pours a translucent amber color with a half inch of head. Fair amount of lacing. The aroma is light hop notes, toasted malts, and sweet rye. The taste is floral hops followed up by the bready rye. Lightly toasted malts. Some citrus peel towards the finish with some floral hop notes
Light mouthfeel. Drinkable but not as much hops as I was hoping. Overall, decent Rye IPA to find in a mix pack but I don't think it can stand on it's own.
