Wasn't sure what to expect with this beer. I hadn't experience a red rye ale before. Boy, I had been missing a great deal of beer. It pours well into a creamy orange-like color head. This stuff is thick, you cannot see through it and the setiment on the bottom is something that I personally enjoy. It smells wonderful, it smells quite yeasty, like a loaf of sour-dough bread that had sat out....and I mean that in a good way. The taste is incredible and lasts in your mouth for quite awhile. It is big and bold and with only 8% in the bomber you cannot get into too much trouble. As always, Bear Rupublic hits a home run. I will be adding this to a regular stock in the fridge. I will additionally suggest it at my place of employment.

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!
