A: Pours a crystal clear amber with an enormous effervescent light tan head. Head fades very slowly, leaving an almost solid wall of lacing behind. Great retention.
S: Nice spicy rye mixed with some notable pine characteristics. A little resin and raisin too.
T: Spicy rye again, grapefruit is more prominent here. A little pine follows and then there's lots of rye bread and a little raisin in the middle. Brief hit of bitterness with grapefruit and resin in the finish. Lingering spicy rye and lots and lots of of very drying bitterness between sips. Hops definitely a little stale but will give it a pass due to almost being at the "best by" date.
M: Medium bodied, smooth and dry in the finish.
O: Nice rye IPA. Wish I could have gotten this one a little fresher. Nice strong rye character, equal to the strong hoppiness.

This beer poured a cloudy amber with a very small white head.
The smell is spicy rye and a little citrus hops.
The taste starts with a rye bitterness, then comes the hopy bitterness with some citrus flavour, finishing with some malt sweetness.
The mouthfeel is quite light with medium carbonation.
A decent enough beer but not as good as hop rod rye in my opinion.

A- pours a bright and clear golden-orange color with a huge foamy white head that retains long after the pour, leaving thick patches of lace all around the glass
S- lots of spicy and peppery notes up front from the rye, hops profile is primarily citric with farm lemon, the malt is biscuity and takes a back seat to the spiciness of the rye
T- bold juicy citrus hop notes with traces of grapefruit juice and lemon rind, a touch of pine in there also. Spiciness of the rye provides a peppery flavor mid-palate tht transitions to a toasted-bread malty finish, more citrus hop with a sweet-yet-dry linger
M- medium body with moderate carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish
O- full of hop flavor, but filled with enough rye to compete and just enough malt to balance it out. Solid Rye IPA
