look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a tight, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of some light rye notes and a floral hops.

Tastes of some spicy rye, floral hops, and a touch of malt sweetness. Malts lead off with some spicy rye and a bit toasted bread. This gives way to some floral and citrus hops with a bit of pine as well. Moderate bitterness leads to some caramel sweetness. Finishes fairly clean.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid floral IPA, but the addition of rye doesn't do it for me.

bomber into a tulip. thanks to bignuke61 for this extra!

Pours a light golden color with a nice head and good lacing. Mild hops on the aroma though honestly not much of a smell on this one. The taste is very smooth and clean. hop profile up front and on the finish you get a lot of rye. didnt know this was a rye beer from the label. Pleasantly surprised. Very drinkable and tasty. Mild body with mild carbonation.

overall a very easy drinking rye ipa. Recommended.

Easily became a favorite of mine after just one lazy afternoon at the brewery. A golden translucent pour supports a nearly eggshell white head of a finger. Smell is of light hops and what I would assume to be rye. Taste is fugging magnificent with bitter and floral hops balanced by the pale rye malting, this is fantastic. Definitively west coast with what I would consider a slightly hop forward beer, the rye is unique enough to make this beer stand apart from other west coast IPAs. That being said, the hop blast and coating of the mouth with a lingering hop bitterness makes it easy to put this beer toe to toe with any of the common favorites of the w/c style: stone IPA, even blind pig :0
Overall, I bought a whole case need I say more???

Bottle share at Proof, I think Masterson brought this one in. Pours a pale yellow with almost no head, collar, or lacing. Aroma is very muted malt and some piney hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with the bitter piney hops up front. Light body and good carbonation though.
