Came in a standard pint glass a slight hazed orange infused lighter golden with a bone white thinner but well sustained head atop.A mix of grapefruit-like hops and sharp rye mainly in the nose,light caramel/biscuit sweetness was detected as well.A big shot of sharp rye along with citric and resinious hops up front on the palate the hops are big but there is also a dryer bready base that holds up pretty well to the rye and hop onslaught.Alot of rye and hop flavors in this beer,really damn good.

May have been a shelf turd or the rye is that strong. Decent beer and the 3.75 reflect my confusion on whether this is a shelfie or a true rye ipa.
