Golden appearance with a slight haze. Moderate head. Aroma is orange with some herbs and bread. Taste is some spiciness from the rye with some orange and citrus and a very mild bitterness. Overall a very decent Rye IPA.

One Claw has a very thick, off-white, spongy head, with a hazy orange gold appearance. All the bubbles went to the head. The lacing is heavy. The aroma is of faint multi-grains (bread crust). The flavor is of strong (not harsh) bitterness and spicy bread crust. One Claw has a medium body and slightly-oil mouthfeel, with a dry finish.

Notes via stream of consciousness: So what is this? A rye pale ale at 5.5% - OK. It's poured a very hazy golden colored body beneath a finger's width of creamy white foam. The aroma is floral, a touch spicy, lightly herbal, and sweetish with grainy malt. It's interesting, pleasant, and welcoming. On to the taste... ahh, interesting, it has a minty note to it. I get the rye, and the spiciness that comes with that, and the floral element as well - it's basically exactly what you smell. A median bitterness balances it and it finishes dry, spicy, floral, and herbal. I'll admit right now that this isn't exactly my favorite kind of beer but I can't find any fault with it; it's really well done. The only exception to that would be that the head retention and lacing isn't great. In the mouth it's medium bodied and crisp. I could get used to this.

More than a hint of ryeness, which to me as an occasional rye whiskey drinker, is a good thing. Not classified as a rye beer or "RyePA," but different characteristic than your run-of-the-mill pale. Vivid mildly-hoppy taste sensation without any overwhelming bitterness. Great beer during the Lowcountry winter months (or anywhere for that matter!) if you are looking for something lighter, yet warming. Pleasant floral and slightly fruity smell, certainly on account of the Azacca hops.

12 oz can, 8/11/20, into BIBCO Stemmie.

I had some reservations about picking this one up, but after all it was only about 2 months old at the time of my purchase. I underestimated my ability to plow through my IPAs fast enough and this one got shoved to the back of the review mini fridge. At any rate, I'll see what it brings and revisit if necessary.

Pours a rather shiny and mostly transparent gold body that resembles apple juice somewhat, with a world-class head constructed of webs a spider could only dream of. 3 fingers is the number, receding gradually, hesitantly, to a finger but not without leaving evidence of where it was.

Some iron-y hop spoilage out front in the nose, with brighter notes of citrus, pine, and pepper. To be honest, even at its age, it's making my mouth water. There is some real art to behold here. It's fruity without seeming juicy; brushing shoulders with the west coast in the best way, but steering clear of the harsh bed of pine needles. Super clean. Impressive.

Flavor brings pepper, water, pine, citrus, spicy rye and carrot, with a finish of carrot and celery. Odd vegetal notes but honestly not all that bad.

Feel is crisp and clean; resinous without going overboard, and the dryness is impeccable.

Overall, this seems like a fantastic beer and it's one I'll make a note to return to if I find it fresh. The flavor is faded a bit, but there's still elements of artistry that make me want to do this again.

Price paid : $1.79 / can
Would buy again : yep

A Tavour treat. Pours a golden color with a minimal head that lasts quite a while. Aroma is citrus fruits and hops. Tastes of citrus with a good hoppy bite. Finished crisp.

It was 97F today and this beer was exactly what I needed. Flavor was remarkable. Perfect pace for someone trying to get into, or work themselves off of, IPAs!

Pours a cloudy golden color with an inch and a half white head that is well retained and leaves excellent lacing. Smells of citrus and a bit of rye. Tastes of grapefruit, orange, rye bread, pepper and a touch of grassiness. Medium bodied, well carbonated, moderate bitterness, easy drinking beer.

Well balanced beer. Great flavor and color. The rye is perfectly in sync with the citrus flavors. Made a calculated order based on other comments and score. 12 oz can at a brunch in Charleston. Very pleased.
