Draught pour at Davis Beer Shoppe into a nonic pint. Pours a gorgeous amber brown with 1.5 fingers of high density light tan head that did not dissipate quickly and left a sheet of lacing. Nose was a little mute, sweetness possibly from caramel malt, spicy from the rye. Loved the taste, lots of spice with pleasant but not overwhelming hop character. Mouthfeel was very good, carbonation spot on, and the finish has a hint of bitterness in a sea of spicy. This is a great example of a red rye IPA done right! Really hoping to find it bottled at some point as I want lots more!

I love a good Rye IPA and this is one which defines the genre. Full bodied and spicy the way a RyePA should be. Pours a deep golden with spicy, earthy hop notes bubbling up from the depths. Taste is like a rollercoaster of flavor, so complex and rich. Like the Sam Adams commercials say of Jim Koch, I practically chew this brew. Overall one of my favorites.
