Notes: Spicy, fresh and a little sassy, this Rye IPA will keep your attention from the moment you bring her to your lips. Brewed with locally grown rye.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a ruddy copper color with a two to three finger, fluffy, tan head, half a finger of retention of retention, a broad parameniscal lacing.
S: Vaguely floral, peppery/spicy, malty, and bread factory aromas.
T: Fairly dry. Definitely a base of caramel and toffee, but maybe a touch of apricot, and the peppery, spiciness of the rye is very evident.
M: Medium to full bodied with solid carbonation.
O: Definitely a "Rye Pale Ale." The elements are there but the pepperiness/spiciness is overwhelming and not in a good way.

A copper colored pour on draft with a multitude of tiny bubbles and a noticeable head that lasts. These features are unfortunately the best aspects of this beer. Not much on the nose that I can discern. Maybe it was too cold. This is a more malty than hoppy ale. Caramel notes and the pine comes in the after notes.

Can to becher pint glass.
The appearance was a modest semi-dark copper color with a sly transparency about it. Some carbonation seen rising to fill a small white foamy head. Softly "vally-ed" itself out to leave some messy lace.
The aroma had the rye malty sweetness initially to roll into a super soft floral hop tone, not necessarily the "rye floral" tone I'm used to for rye beers. Light caramel smoothness.
The flavor leads with a refined blend of sweet caramel malts with rye sweetness. Mellow aftertaste of rye malts and caramel tones.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps just a touch above with a fair sipping quality about it. Rye isn't what I thought it could have been to spark any kind of harshness but I didn't mind for the most part. Finishes somewhat smooth with a touch of bitterness.
Overall, rye IPA? Yeah, I can see it but somehow I think I would like some other rye IPA's over this.

Aroma is deep caramel and husky earth, prickly spruce. Catmint, orange rind, earthy pepper, spice, apricot, melon. Big flavorpoints are caramel/tropical sweetness, peppery/earthy spice, and a citric bitterness that lingers just enough to beg another sip. This presents a nice reset from most IPAs.

On tap at My Place in Delmar, NY.

This one pours a clear light amber color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells mainly like rye and caramel malt, with very little bright hop character- just generic bitterness.

This is quite boring. The rye character is nice, though. It's otherwise malty and astringent, and just poorly executed. I can't really recommend this one.

This is light bodied, kind of crisp, and at least drinkable.

This isn't all that well executed.

Pours close to three fingers of dark tan foam, mottled surface, it sizzles around the edges causing a swift evaporation, the lacing teases you but slides off the glass like it was greased. Dark coppery orange with a reddish brown tint, clean as a whistle, the glass is filled with a hyperactive storm of super tiny bubbles and I mean filled throughout. Heavy caramel, toffee influence to the nose, the rye gives it a roasty, peppery nuance, more grainy than grassy, likes bite, there’s a concentrated, if not reduced, feel to the peach, apricot, to melon fruit scents. Full-bodied, the carbonation is persistent, but persistently downy rather than scrubbing. The rye more focused and spicy on the palate and the herbaceous element picks up speed so it has some erectness in spite of its heft. In turn, minerally and earthy, cleans up some of the excess caramel, molasses flavors. Mild orange citrus accents add life to the apricot, apple, pineapple fruit. It seems like it aimed too much at presenting certain ingredients rather than noting what it lacked and filling the holes. Fine enough, would be more drinkable were it lighter in body.

A good rye IPA, love the rye malt flavor. My only complaint would be that it is a little too sweet. Very drinkable at 6% ABV. I would definitely buy this again. Very sessionable.

Drunk with Chicken Tika Masalla.
Canned (one pint) May 5, drunk July 4.
Poured dark brown with a bit of sludge in the bottom.
Good + plus balance of hops and malt.
Really liked the rye notes.
Pleasant back note of hop bitterness that went very well with the tika masalla.
I have a picture of the can but past attempts of posting a picture have failed.
