Paid $3.50 for the single. Into a mason jar pint glass.
A - Wow thats a deep dark beer with a ruby brown color clear with a 1/4 inch of head that sticks around for a bit. Solid lacing.
S - Smelled in the bottle very hoppy and nutty. In the glass more rye bread type smell and juicy hops. Diving in.
T - A very mixed hop experience I get bread rye malts, dye bittering hops that leave a soapy feeling on the palate, and sweet citrus hop rind with a cracker like mix.
M - Very slick each sip coats the mouth with dry bread clashing with soapy west coast hop bitterness but it all comes to a medium bodied drink experence.

Wow I have not had a beer so tasty and complex in a bit. Well worth the experence. One of the better rye IPA's I had next to RYEpa from founders.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Enjoy by the third week of July in 2014.

A: Pours a clear deep red with a white head on top. Spots of lacing on the sides of the glass as the head dissipates in a minute or so.

S: Up front malty rye blended nicely with a the tropical nose of mosaic hops. Pretty tropical nose on this one.

T: Nice balance in this beer, a blend of tropical fruits and a hint of spice from the rye. The bitterness of the hops is harnessed by the malt backbone so it never overwhelms. Real clean flavor on this one.

M: Medium body with ample carbonation. For an IPA is has a fairly clean finish with no unwanted stickiness from the hops.

Overall I'm a huge fan of rye malts and mosaic hops so I went into this with some high expectations. It is a very solid beer that I could drink all night.
