Broke out a bottle of this before the SDSU/Nevada game. It was Shipley's last home win for the Wolfpack.
Pours a light mild orange and darker yellow. Looks nice, Great Lakes have never had a hard time making a professional looking beer. Aroma was mild on the rye, Simcoe hops were in good use, but not overly heavy handed about it. Fruit leaning aromas from the hops, grapefruit & tangelo.
Taste and body of the beer was lighter on the feet than expected with the rye, the rye is not heavy or plentiful apparently. But that is not to say the beer is compromised in any way, it just means its actually a little easier to drink than I may have expected, smoother flowing, higher carbonation to the mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol quite well. If you were expecting a rye heavy beer, you are probably disappointed.
I liked it. I don't think west coast ipa's are great lakes strength, but they showed they can make a good one here.
