16 ounce aluminum bottle, no dating I could find on it. This batch says it's 6.7% ABV. Served in a Spiegelau IPA glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy dark gold color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both very good. The brew smells like citrusy (citrus peel) and grassy hops, bready malt and spicy rye. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also some caramel malt noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick with a good amount of soft carbonation. It's also easy enough to drink. I liked this brew, definitely worth a try if you like rye IPA's. $5 for a single bottle.

Many thanks to Danny for grabbing this on a family visit to WV. Cheers!

The brew itself is a lightly hazed medium-dark orange color, almost brassy with its brightness. Lots of carbonation holds up a foamy and frothy pale orange-tinted head very well. Falling very slowly, it keeps up half a finger or so of dense and chunky head for the remainder.
Rye comes out very nicely as its spice and earth mingle with citrus, and it oddly doesn't clasp with a fruity sweetness that seems to be a combination of alcohol and yeast. It's like smelling honey-drizzled fruits rolled around in rye dough, and more appetizing than "rye fruitcake" would sound. It seems like a good comparison, though.
It's both a bit sweeter and a bit hoppier, danker and more raw in the flavor. I like it, though, and it works together. Eventually everything blends into a more harmonious and singular flavor. It's a hoppy rye, and it works.
All that earth, dankness and yeast brings no undue harshness to the feel, and it flows smoothly as well as biting crisply. Well done.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, honey, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and rye flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice rye presence that comes through slightly better in the aroma.

Had a 22 oz bottle yesterday.Poured into a nonic a clear brass color with a tight formed billowing white head atop,aromas of spicy rye and nutty malts,an odd bubblegum note came through wich I haven't encountered with this style.Flavors of nutty malt and a big shot of earthy and citric hops with a spicy rye finish,well rounded.A very good rye infused IPA,it has enough big hops and spicy rye to please a hophead like me.
