This was a stunning surprise. Pours with a deep red/brown hue, good foam and excellent retention, nice lace.
Smells of IPA: pine, citrus, malts, and a little spice. The flavors are nice with pine and citrus up front, framed by the rye and lightly roasted malt. Very complex palate. Texture is nicely balanced with alcohol, bitterness, acids, all in sync.
Definitely a big boy, but not over the top as some IPAs can be. The rye adds a lot. I couldn't pound these one after another, but it is nice to sip and enjoy one.
Serving type: on-tap
