Nicely done IPA with rye. Medium dark amber with thick fluffy off-white head. Just the right amount of bitterness, smooth palate, dry finish. This is a really good IPA.

This tastes spicy due to the rye malts that have been added & it is also quite hoppy. This is okay for a change up but I think prefer barrel aged versions of this style over regular Rye IPA's. Cheers! B- (80-84) score range

12 oz bottle (12/23/17) poured into an IPA glass. Glad to be able to get some SN extremely fresh in NC, thanks to great things happening out in Western NC. And glad to see this one return. Pours a dark amber orange, with a three finger white head that retains for great portion of the glass. The aroma is heavy pine and bread/rye. The taste is right in line with the nose, a good balance of rye/pine/malt. Medium level of carbonation and heft with a slightly bitter finish. A tasty easy drinking rye IPA.

The appearance is a golden orange-brown, mostly clear with no head whatsoever. The lacing is spotty but also leaves the rings as the beer is sipped. The aroma has mainly the rye and the hops with some light pine in there as well. The taste is peppery through the rye and hops coming through. The palate is light to medium with a dry aftertaste and finish with some light harshness on the tongue. This is a mostly drinkable beer. Overall, as a rye beer and as an IPA, whatever it is, I like it.
