Wow. This had a cool label. I took good notes and a photo of this back in March of this year,

It's cloudy and dirty yellow in the glass. The head was pretty much MIA. The aroma is a pungent sweat sock smell. Nasty.

The taste follows in the same vein, but not as bad. You could almost tell it was a rye beer. It was almost drinkable if you could get past the smell. I wonder if this was just another bad bottle from Crafty Drafts in Ghana. I certainly would not want another and I'm avoiding the store too.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy orangish gold with sediment and floaties; small white head that fades and leaves great retention and decent lacing. The aromas are full of caramel malts and sticky grapefruit. Lots of lemon zest. There are hints of orange peel as well. There's some black pepper. Rye is there giving it a subtle spiciness. The flavors are sharp and crisp. Pretty solid bitterness. There's a solid malt background which really makes the hops pop. Lots of lemon. Lots of grapefruit. Hints of pine. Very earthy. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's extremely crisp. Alcohol goes unnoticed and it's easy to drink.

This is a solid Rye IPA. It's not flashy and there's no gimmicks. It's just straight foraward and well crafted.

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.
