Reviewed 3-27-15. Canned on 1-21-15. Water goblet.

Appearance: Pours a hazy apricot orange with 2 fingers of foamy, off-white head. Very nice lacing. Modest retention of a thin cap.

Aroma: Like mystic mama, very fresh, resiny hops, but more tropical, less gasoline. Still Simcoe, though.

Dry arrival. Dry/slight hop mid-palate. Bitter finish - spicy - I see what the rye adds at the end; the bitterness is not hoppy, it's like Canadian Club grainy.

Mouthfeel: Light/thin. Not slick. Moderate carb.

If Rye of the Tiger didn't do it, this did. I don't like rye beers. I do like rye whisky. Not rye beer. Consider it a paradox.

Classic optics - golden straw color, carbonation and quarter inch of head. Soft aroma but pleasant - some floral hops and spice from the rye. Just faint. Lots of grassy hops on this one, pretty delicate flavor but I was really looking for more from the rye. It is there and adds some of that classic spice but it just seems disconnected from the beer. Nothing is married particularly well. It is hops upfront, a little rye then boom done. Body was also a little light in my opinion.

On tap at Jackie O's public house, the night before the June release. Brad, himself, has told me this is his favorite IPA hes done. Since then I've been excited to try it. Especially after I missed it at Bodega.

Appearance
Lots of lacing, that I can't really tell where its origins are. There isn't much of a head, just a whispy collar. The beer is a minorly cloudy brass.

Aroma
Snappy caraway paired up with zesty orange. The malts have an even toastiness about them. The aroma is quite balanced, but as compaired to today's wild IPAs, somewhat malty.

Taste
A medicinal bitterness builds on the finish. The flavor is toasted rye, some grassiness and lemon-lime.

Mouthfeel
Slick with a semi dry, semi oily finish. Lower carbonation. Lingering bitterness.

12 oz can, stamped 7/14/15 on the bottom

pours a slightly hazy medium golden in colo, foamy white head, good lacing. pale malt aroma with a ton of hops on top. don't really pick up the rye in the flavor. expected some darker malt to work with the rye. too unbalanced for me, a bit too bitter. thinner bodied.
