3.1/5 rDev -17.8%
Bottle at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma nondescript, faint hops
Head average (4 cm), off-white, frothy, mostly lasting
Lacing good – mostly extant lacey rings as the level drops
Body a beautiful medium orange, clear
Flavor begins bitter with no specific hop flavor as well as no distinct rye spiceness; no specific hop presence, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no malt.
Ends with a non-specific astringency
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation
A very nondescript beer; no separate or distinct flavors, just a jumble of ingredients producing an average beer worthy of a BMC production. A shame – good rye beers are hard to find and Yard’s makes some good beers overall – I had high hopes for this one. Although this one has a lovely appearance saying “Drink Me!”, you probably shouldn’t.

I picked this up at Wegmans, poured chilled from the 12oz brown bottle into a glass mug.
The color is light amber with great clarity and thick rocky off white cream with average sized bead and lots of lace, retention is very good. The smell is great, lots of citrus and tropical fruit aromas from the hops with slight tangelo or orange with mild rye malt toastiness in the nose. The feel is excellent, lots of citrus tanginess with moderate bitterness with slight sweetness and medium carbonation with low alcohol in the feel.
The taste is better than average actually it is great - hop dominance with slight tangelo and grapefruit flavor with a slight hint of pineapple and mild rye backs up the hops with a light toasted but not really sweet flavor. There is a subtle alcohol tinge in the background when you take larger gulps, but as a sipper it is mild. The flavor is high quality and I enjoyed drinking this ..it could be a new contender for my go-to rye IPA. Whatever the case is I recommend trying this if you like the combination of rye malt and IPA!

Bronze-colored brew, or maybe lighter. Nice head formed with some curly lace strands.
Spicy rye with some restraint and a hefty hop bill loaded with volatile aromas of spice, dank citrus, bitter leafiness, herbal hop, and pith. Slight toast, but diffused by hop presence and hearty grains.
Very tasty. Citrus peel, herbal hoppiness, strong spicy rye, earthiness, hearty cereal, and a kiss of lemon. Great character and very quaffable. More than approachable mouthfeel. Inviting carbonation with some chunky head to bite through. The body is slick and medium to medium-light.
Great rye ale. I recommend grabbing more than one. It has the character of an IPA, but not quite the intensity. I can buy it.

Bright orange with a yellowish hue in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a thick off-white foam that left thick sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Citrus orange and earthy, minty hop aromas with caramel and rye malt in tow. Medium bodied with rich, lush carbonation and a clean, semi-dry finish. Citrus and herbal, minty flavors up front with light caramel malt beneath. Spicy, tangy rye flavors follow through the middle to the end. Finishes with a flash of fresh citrus followed by spicy rye and lingering pine hop bitterness. Easy drinking, great feel, and a plethora of pleasant flavors. This was very good.
