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.

Clear gold with lasting thick white head and heavy lacing. Big mango aroma with a little spicy rye kick. Much pinier hop flavor with good hop bitterness. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. Not bad.

Pours slightly darker than golden with good foam but not too much. Hoppy aroma on the fruity side. Some particulate but not to the feel in the mouth. Just enough effervescence in the mouth. Great rye-IPA flavor somewhat less evergreen and more fruit taste than the regular IPA's I'm accustomed to. Really nice flavor. Can't go wrong with the dog driving the Westy on the label either! This is an IPA that might be more amenable to a friend that finds regular IPA's too bitter.

A: Pours a burnt orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves some good lacing

S: Some citrusy hops and spicy rye stand out. Hints of floral and tea-like hops as well

T: Follows the nose. Fruity and piney hops along with spicy rye kick things off. The tea notes continue here, adding some bitterness to the mix. Finishes with lingering bitterness and more tea and rye notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A solid rye IPA with a good mix of maltiness and hops. Quite easy to drink. Recommended if you're into rye beers

12oz botle poured into a pint. The brew appears a clear copper color with off-white cap that holds well.

It smells herbal with citrus and minerals then rindy grassy towards the back with minimal toasty malt.

This tastes bitter with light toadted malts and some minerals/carbonic character. There is a neutral hoppy fruited aspect present and resinous bitterness.

This is light bodied and modestly carbonated. Not a bad brew by any stretch but also not something I feel I need to have again.

Nice beer. Starts and finishes clean with a balanced malt body, mild hops and moderate rye flavors. More bitter hop taste than fruit or citrus and the rye comes through on the front end and dissipates quickly. Crisp throughout. A real easy drinker.

Pours a deep reddish copper in color, a cursory first glance shows this as slightly hazy but upon closer inspection lots of particulates are visible. Aroma is piney hops, spicy rye notes, and surprisingly enough some sweet maltyness. Taste is a piney hops, spicy rye, and a brief malt sweetness that segues into a light to moderate bitterness. Medium-light body and carbonation. Overall a good rye IPA, the rye balances well with the hops to create a drinkable brew.
