Poured from a 22 oz into stein. Cloudy & light in color. Rye dominant on the aroma. Taste - surprisingly strong malt in the front - dissipates quickly into a more conventional IPA bitter, but I was surprised at the malt. Excellent carbonation - just right.

Overall - a solid IPA, not top echelon, but very drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - see through, bright orange with a short cap of off white head that leaves a nice lacing

S - faint bread, some sweetness, huge citrus aromas, orange, grapefruit

T - bread, semi-sweet, mildly peppery, faint pine, citrus, mildly bitter finish

M - medium bodied though a bit thin at times, crisp, well carbonated

This is a nice rye IPA. There is a huge citrusy hop presence that goes well with the balancing malt backbone. The rye is present and its peppery notes mesh well with the piney hop bitterness in the finish. The bitterness isn't palate crushing making this beer easy to knock back. I definitely recommend it.
