Distinguished 'I'm not a virgin' wedding-dress-white head glistens two fingers above a deep mahogany body. Lacing is like icing dripping off the roof of a ginger-bread house.
Deep fruity scents: plum and black cherry. Smell is dark and rich and sweet. Maple syrup and honey together. Also, citrusy hops; lemon and tangerine scents. Also get passion fruit and a general fruit medley - outstanding. The nose is also a little woody, like cherry wood. It's consistently sweet, but has such a wide range of scents that are all subtly integrated. Downright impressive.
Solid medium mouthfeel - good body and medium range level of carbonation. All pretty well done for the style, although feels a little thin as you work your way down the glass.
The taste is more bitter than the smell, but that's kind of welcome as to not make the flavor sickeningly sweet. Taste is a little dull. Still fruity - passion fruit, plum and nectarine. It's a little tangy like nectarine or green apples (green grapes?). Taste is more green fruit, vs. the smell which was very rouge.
A great beer all-around and very drinkable. Could certainly be a session beer.

12oz bottle. Aroma of rich grain, piney hops and sweet malt. Pours dark amber with a frothy white head. Flavors of spicy grain, resinous hops with a pronounced bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter. Not bad. Last beer of birthday night so impressed that I remembered it at all.

12 ounce bottle into an IPA glass. "Best by" 05/20/14
Dark amber body, nearly brown. Big fluffy off-white head caps this one off. Great lacing throughout. Sweet notes of citrus from the hops stands out in the nose. Other notes of sweet fruit and spiced hops are also detectable. Pretty good presence of rye in the malts. The malts really carry complex flavors from the rye. Sweet caramel and bread slowly break down and leave a great hit of citric hops in the finish. Somewhat smokey flavors develop in the finish.
This is quite frankly one of the best Rye IPAs I have had.
