A- Dark red, almost burgundy that is so dense you cannot see through. There is also a decently thick tan head.
S- A floral earthiness/pinyness from the Amarillo hops.
T- At the front, you taste the floral earthiness/pinyness of the Amarillo hops. This hop flavor is mostly bitter, with a hint of sweetness toward the end of the sip. There is also a hint of dark malts that provide some more sweet to counterbalance the bitter hoppiness. The aftertaste is the bitter pinyness from the hops.
M- Great full, round body that coats your entire mouth with flavor, which is typical of the brewery.
D- Wouldn't mind having a bottle or two, but it is a filling brew due to the medium ABV, full body, and robust hop flavor.

I picked up a bottle of this while buying a six of Weihenstephaner's Hefeweissbeir, to have something a little different, and because I am trying all the RyePAs I can.
This is a damn good beer! As I cracked it open, I can smell the fruityness coming off the bottle. On the pour, the nose is pineapple, citrus, and pine. Nice bit of head (giggity) that lingered longer than most, with light lacing. The taste is fruity, not at all as bitter as some IPAs I have had, and has nice malt sweetness and rye spicyness. It's not too carbonated, but nicely fizzy.
Total "hops & pineapple" burps, as I just found out as I write this review! *L*
A really fine version of this type of IPA. Totally earns its ranking, and I am not the biggest fan of the style. Easily will I recommend and buy this again!
