Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A big, unfiltered American IPA built to accompany the big Eastern Winter. Just like an epic bluebird day follows a snow storm, a peppery build from the Rye-malt accompanies glorious hop notes of pine, citrus and fresh grass.

This isn't very good. Double Dose is outstanding and the new Pale is also pretty good. This just isn't for me, malty and sweet, very not good.

Look: Transparent copper with a large eggshell head. Quite active with sticky lacing. Some yeast present.

Smell: Sticky sweet caramel malt notes. Vegetal and piney hops.

Taste: Sharp rye attacks the palate. The come sticky pine hops with green vegetal notes to overwhelm the body. A mild caramel malt peaks through. Finish is light citrus hops but is blown out by bitter pine.

Feel: Rye is spicy and dances on the tongue. The brew is bitter throughout with a semi-dry finish. No alcohol detected.

Overall: What would be an average IPA gets blown out by bitterness. While I applaud the bold Rye flavor it's a shame it gets overshadowed quickly by a bitterness that leaves the palate scorched earth

cloudy orange color with a nice sized white head, about a finger upon pouring into the glass. the head lingered as a small white ring on the top of the beer in the glass. It has a light citrus almost orange scent to it. As the amount of beer in the glass lessened the scent turned to more of an orange than at the beginning. Started out with a little bit of a hoppy bitterness that quickly faded. Very light feeling beer, almost as light as a session IPA. This is a light IPA that would be decent for a nice summer day, and at only 6% would be fine. Its a little too light for me and the hoppy kick that is common in most American IPAs is not very pronounced in this. Decent beer to try, but I will not be buying another six pack of it for a little while.
