From a can. Copper colour with generous offwhite head. Berry smell, mostly raspberry. Not as sweet as the nose suggests. The slightly mealy feel I associate with rye is here. Taste is lemon and raspberry with a somewhat spicy hop finish. Very good.

Can. Red amber colour with a slight haze. Thin beige head.
The rye is apparent upon smelling along with sweet malt and earthy hops.
A medicinal flavour with a resin astringency.
Soft carbonation with a mid range body.
A decent rye beer. The extra alcohol is a bonus.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Tawny opaque amber with a huge khaki head. Thick loops of lace.

Aroma: Crisp crisp citrus and pine hop notes. Caramel malts add to the pleasure.

Taste: Plenty of citrus hops up front, with a punch of spicy rye and deep caramel malt sweetness giving a layered flavor profile. Very nice, but not up to par with other BrewDog offerings.

12oz can, date stamped 09/19/19. A hazy, rusty colored ale is capped by a tremendously frothy beige head that holds great retention and leaves chunky foam down the glass. Aroma is spicy & earthy rye, caramel malt, rye bread, citrus, and pine. Spicy rye is presently bold in flavor and melds well with notes of rye bread crust, toasted grain, caramel, grapefruit, and earthy pine. Full body, creamy and very resinous, moderate carbonation, and a wicked bitter finish that is very drying on the palate. I always love a red rye IPA and this one does not disappoint.

pours a hazy copper with a small creamy head which dissipates quickly to a film on the surface
smell is mild but the rye really comes through and is appetizing
rye is quite prevalent up front followed by bitter hops and a pleasant, caramel and malt aftertaste
mouthfeel is medium with mild stickiness
overall it's pretty well balanced and tasty

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear copper pour with thick foamy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Sweet caramel malts and rye/spice.

T.F: Sweet up front. Caramel, brown sugar, and toasted grains. Moderate bitterness with the rye. Sharp with a bit of spice and floral character. Light citrus at the finish. Medium bodied... sticky on the tongue.

O: A very well executed malty rye IPA. Nice mix of sweet malts and bitter spicy rye. Made for a nice changeup from the juice bomb IPA's.
