I'm not a big rye IPA fan (despite loving IPAs and double IPAs), but was surprising re-introduced to the type by the surprisingly excellent Sierra Nevada Founders Rye IPA. So, at a visit to our local beer shop, I picked up the Bear Republic's entry into the Rye IPA field.
The beer is good. It looks great--incredible head, excellent appearance on the glass--and feels only slightly heavy in the mouth. It also tastes good, albeit a bit sweet for me. I wish that it was a bit hoppier and that the sweetness was toned down a bit. But, I do like it and wouldn't shy away from having another.
