The first beer I've given all 5's.
Poured with perfect 1 finger carbonation. Creamy and bubbly. Clear Red color.
I wouldn't normally call sediment pretty - but oh yes... these green flecks of hops make me smile.
The Rye is there - spicy and malty and slightly sweet - just very subtle. The taste is out of this world. Raisiny malts mixed with citrusy hops, and a final bitter bite that reminds you exactly what you are drinking.
Serving type: on-tap

3.89/5 rDev -8%

Appearance - A wonderful mahogany look with a tan head about a finger thick.
Smell - a very rich curious smell that builds anticipation to what you are about to taste.
Taste - If you are expecting a normal IPA taste here - you will be surprised my friends. The taste is similar to its rich bourbon esque smell. Though the taste is slightly less strong and flavorful than the smell, it is still very tasty.
Mouthfeel - The feel is very similar to the taste.
Overall - This is a very good, unique IPA that differs greatly from your typical IPA.
Until Next Time
