12 bottle from Beers of Europe, England and poured to a tulip.
A-The color is a deep maroon amber with two to three fingers of light brownish head with some really thick lacing.
A-Hoppy with some really nice floral scent, pretty sweet with the rye malt really presence in the nose; one of the better smell beers I had in a while.
T-Definite hints or rye malt at first, almost all rye malt with a small bitterness at the end of this first sip. The rye malt flavor continues to show it’s self on further sipping, with some good floral hops that seem to increase towards the end.
M-The feel is this beer is a light medium bodied beer. It is light on the pallet and goes down pretty well.
O-A great pleaseant feel to this beer and easy drinking.

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!
