Another great beer from Westbrook. Pours a dark gold fairly clear color with lots of carbonation/bubbles. Big white head and thick bands of lacing on the glass, with good head retention. Aroma is mostly citrus hops, very pronounced. Great flavor, citrus hops and bready malt with some rye sourness. Mouthfeel is rich and crisp, good carbonation and level of bitterness. The rye sourness is a nice touch too. Westbrook makes some fine beers and this is one of them!!!!

A - Pours a very cloudy orange with a very white foamy head.
S - Aroma is a lot of citrus and grapefruit pith.
T - Flavor is another matter. Just a hint of citrus, very bready.
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation.
O - Not a bad beer at all, very drinkable, but not one I will seek out again.

12 oz can

Pours a hazy orange golden, pillowy white head retains well at a quarter inch.

Smells of citrus, sourdough bread, hemp, rye, and cereal malts.

Tastes of citrus and sourdough bread malts with a rye accompaniment and a light spicy and fruity hop finish,

Medium to full bodied with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Very tasty! Lots of good flavor and aroma here. Flavorful APA with good malt and hop balance, and the rye addition is subtle but welcome. Good body drinks very smooth. Feels a bit heavier than it is. Definitely worth trying.

This is quite a unique Rye IPA. Usually for me the rye is good, but never this smooth. Somehow it is balanced and smooth all the way through with a only the Rye coming out in the finish. I brought this beer home from NYC while visiting my bro. I would try to get more for sure.

33cl can. Hazy orange with a thin white head. Citrus and grapefruit, bread, spices, caramel. Medium bodied - actually thicker than most IPAs - with a low carbonation and a moderately bitter and spicy aftertaste.

On tap. Hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma has some orange marmalade with some spicy rye bread. Taste is quite grainy with multi cereal, whole grain bread, spicy rye and some lemony hops on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Quite interesting beer but it's a bit too grainy for my taste.
