12 oz pour into a snifter.

Ruby red, clear with a sturdy off white head that leaves sticky lacing around the rim of the glass. Sweet malt, dank, tropical hops. Tropical sweetness, dank hops and and caramel malt blend well to provide an intense flavor without being cloying. Finishes semi-dry.

Another great brew from Fat Head's. Hoppy sweet goodness that is super drinkable for the ABV. Well done.

Pours an amber red color with a white soapy head. Aroma of big malt and perhaps a whiskey element. In the taste, spicy rye, toasted malt and a dry hop bite. Alcohol is there but not overpowering. Has a doughy malt, spicy rye, caramel and bitters thing going on. Medium to full bodied ale, with a dry bite and cleaner finish. Overall, I quite enjoyed the bigger version of the bonehead.

I enjoyed this today at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. Served on tap, it had a light red color, and the head left full lacing around the glass. The smell was a nice balance between rye and hop flavor, especially pine. The taste was consistent with the balance, with pronounced rye but also plenty of hop punch in there. It was fairly bitter, and the alcohol was concealed nicely. The mouthfeel was great, as this beer had the right amount of thickness and carbonation and went down very nicely. Overall, while I'm not a huge fan of rye beers, I recognize that this is well crafted and is easily the best rye IPA I've had.

Will edit review from notes, am heading to the taphouse tonight to indulge in more of this one of a kind brew. Simply amazing! Will edit review in next couple days. Please note this is the Imperial version of their Red Rye beer and this is the first time it was brewed.
