22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/23/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light toast, spicy rye and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/grassy hops with moderate toast/rye malt presence; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light toast, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of grassy/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light toast, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus/grassy hops and light-moderate toast/rye malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice rye IPA. All around good complexity and balance of juicy citrus/grassy hops with light-moderate toast/rye malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a golden orange hue in the glass completely glowing with an off white head, which forms a rocky textured head fine speckled lacing. Aroma has a spicy rye note with citrus notes reigning supreme here. Flavor is packed full of citrus, a bit of honeydew melon, and big spicy rye in each sip...I love how they pulled off the rye with the pale malt base leaving behind the flavors I love in an IPA. Pear and peach tartness goes well with the malt notes coming through I'm impressed with the drinkability of this beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied slightly resinous flows evenly with each sip. Overall I'm a fan of this beer it goes down smooth even carbonation big beer with velvet gloves I can respect that.

Had on tap in a pint glass at Irish TImes. I am not going to do the typical ASTMO review. It has a light rye taste up front then hop take over. Grassy, orange, burnt sugar, and a little astringent. It's a solid four. I honestly perfer FFF rye the tiger over this one, which is hard for me to say.

A clean golden pour with a finger if head which quickly dissipated. Smells like toasty bread and leafy greens.. A bit of caramel sweetness is in there too... And a bit nutty. The flavor is bitter up front with a sweet barley and toasty rye being the showcase here. A little sweet for a rye beer, and not as hoppy as I was hoping for but drinks very smoothly and feels session able even though the abv is high (but not present). Medium body with higher carbonation.
A tasty treat with a very cool name. We're gonna have a tv party tonight!

A: Rich clear copper with decent head that lingers around for a bit.

S: Faint rye spice with tropical fruit dominating (grapefruit, mango, pineapple, light tangerine). Some carbonic bite.

T: Some rye upfront with some tropical fruit. Bready rye in the finish. I get some metallic sensation too.

M: Crisp and easy to drink.

O: Pretty good but not too blown away.
