good local ipa, nice spice from the rye. pours a hazy honey color from the growler into a pint glass with a good 2 inch white head on top. smells hoppy with a very interesting spicy malt aroma as well. the two work well together. flavor is big time rye malt, way more so than many other rye beers ive tried. it imparts a spicy character to the beer that is carried on by big grassy hop additions and a vibrant mouthfeel. body is a bit bigger than medium, but you could easily put back 3 or 4 pints of this. a staple of renegade, and a nice ipa to try.

Appearance: Arrives with a slightly hazy honey color capped by a couple of inches of foam; decent lacing

Smell: Slightly bready with a nice citrus/pine aromatic element

Taste: A bit of bready malt in the front end and then the hops take over bringing citrus and pine tones; the rye is very noticeable in the finish, which is a nice touch

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice IPA with a twist from the rye; one of the best examples of bringing the rye into the flavor profile that I have encountered

Orange amber in the stubby nonic glass. Decent head. Interesting aroma of hops, chamomile, and alfalfa. Pleasant herbal flavors along with a strong sage spice.

Malty with a richness of flavor, but a light body. Very aromatic with the long nose of hops smelling like Cascades. Malty and pleasant, with plenty of hops striking a nice drinkable balance.

Renegade seems to have a winner here. On tap at the brewpub just off Santa Fe Dr. Review notes from July 22 visit.

Another of Blargimus' CANs in support of The CANQuest (TM) and I may soon finally run out of all of the CANs that he sent to me! It was a massive trade, to be sure.

From the CAN: "offensively delicious"; "If you were looking for a watered down beer that you could mindlessly gulp in front of the television, you chose the wrong beer. What you hold in your hand is a Ryeteous brew demanding your attention to its complex rye-based malt profile complemented by citrusy hops. This is beer for those who do the don'ts and don't do the do's, the Renegades. Best enjoyed in the company of good friends."

I had no problems on the Crack, but I was glad that I read tone77's comments before initiating a heavy-handed Glug. Even with a gentle pour, I was getting a lot of foam! It reminded me of a sitcom in which too much detergent is added into the washing machine and hilarity ensues. I wasn't much laughing, however, because I really wanted to drink a beer and sooner, rather than later. I cued up Carly Simon doing "Anticipation" during the wait time. Let's settle for two fingers of dense, tawny head with too-good retention, hence my waiting. Nose smelled of grapefruit-citrus hops. Color was a hazy yellowish-orange. Mouthfeel was medium and the hops had a nice bite on the tongue. Finish was dry and bitter, but seemed to lack the rye pepperiness that I have come to expect in this variation on the style. I've had better.

16oz can with no freshness date.

Hazed golden hue, decent lacing hold well. Big orange zest aroma with hints of lime leaves, tobacco, heather, peppercorn, nutty yeast, biscuity rye, grapefruit pith, mild esters and bread. Light crispness, creamy, slick chewy body. Quite bitter from the hopping, the rye lends a hand at keeping it lively with a spicy / biscuity tone. Citrus rind, tobacco, pine sap, pineapple guava, walnuts, peppery. Hoppy finish.

Tasty all around, in the raw a bit with particulates floating around and a less than refined flavor profile ... the latter is more welcomed though. A good quaff regardless.

Thanks to woodychandler for yet another canned beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Uh-oh, this beer exploded out of the can and created a glass full of foam. After letting the can sit for about 15 minutes it was still foamy on the pour, with a cloudy golden color. Smell is of rye and spice. Taste is hops, rye, pine, good bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall I may have enjoyed this one more if half the can wasn't foam.

A solid first can from Renegade. Upon cracking, the hops aroma smacks me in da face. Piney and spicy.

Pours a light amber/hazel/golden color. Head is medium and dissipates quickly. This foreshadows the feel, imo

Again, nice aroma. It's not in your face, but it ain't subtle either. Pine, spice and faint sweet bread. The rye is there and plays with the hops nicely.

Flavor is mostly hops and bread spice. Hold up the rye and light crystal is the hop profile. It keeps this beer from being a malt mess. So fine is the line, and Renegade dances on it playfully.

The only thing about this beer that takes a hit on points is the feel/body. It seems thin. Is this lack of carbonation? I'm not sure, but the lack of head points this way.
