Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 16-oz. glass
From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga, N.Y.
Price: $1.99
Purchased: Jan. 15, 2014
Consumed: Jan. 17, 2014
Misc.: DOB on Aug. 31, 2013

Poured a caramel orange color with 2-to-3 fingers of off white frothy head. Great amount of even layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled citrus hops, floral hops, Cascade hops, rye hops, iced tea, lime and pine.

Tasted rye hops, citrus hops, floral hops, pine, slight resin hops, iced tea and lemon notes.

Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long finish.

Overall this was a very good IPA. I would certainly love to try them again.

12oz. bottle: this one pours a clear, lighter amber color. There was a small off-white head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. Surprisingly lighter aroma for an 8% beer. Some sweet malts, a hint of rye and a hint of spices. The taste is good, but not too exciting. Malts, with just a hint of sweetness. A touch of the rye and spices. Good, but could be better.

I will tell anyone that listens when I get going on about beer, that I am not an IPA fan for the most part. I don't like beer that is "too hoppy" and when it gets too bitter, and/or medicinal tasting, well it just doesn't agree with me. I am more of a brown ale guy, TBH. So when I was in my local bottle shop looking for something different, all I saw on the ST 2X Rye carton was "3 kinds of hops and 5 kinds of malts" and figured I'd give it a try. It wasn't until I got home that I saw it was a rye IPA. Well, I certainly wasn't gonna waste this beer, so I cracked one and poured it into a glass...

My, doesn't /look/ like any IPA I have ever seen, nice caramel colour! Smells like an IPA, but not like "every other" IPA. I take a sip... and find myself enjoying this beer! Yes, it is bitter, but just within my boundaries of acceptance. I did find the malt coming through, and it ended in a very pleasant dryness without making my mouth pucker. The higher ABV content is well-hidden.

So, my basic proclamation is this - this is an IPA for people who don't like IPAs! I will be seeking out other rye IPAs to compare!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label listed the abv at 8.1%.

Appearance: It has a deep honey amber color with a very slight haze. There is some visible carbonation and a tall thick head on top. Head retention and lacing is very good.

Smell: The nose is big has some solid malty sweetness along with some deep citrus hop notes.

Taste / Palate: There is a big full bodied malty base with a good mix of bready sweetness and spice up front. This is quickly balanced with solid hop bitterness and orange like citrus hop flavor notes.
