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

Poured into an Irish pint glass.

Look: A hazy thick sunburnt caramel colored body holds up light cream colored head. The head recedes to a patch of bubbles, some wisp, and leaves nice lines of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Cedar, rye malts, black pepper.

Taste: It starts out very dry and ends very dry, but in the middle there is some faint caramel sweetness and a touch of citrus.

Mouthfeel: Dry, thick.

Overall: This is a very tasty beer. It's a bit on the dry side, but has enough in it to offset that and make it very enjoyable to drink. Watch out, that 7% ABV will sneak up on ya.

Bought a tall boy can of this at the local Trader Joe's while in Denver for GABF last weekend. Poured into a Stella Artois chalice glass. Smells of sticky sweet citrus hops with spicy rye and some underlying malts. The malt might be lending towards the sweet aromas. I also get some orange and honey dew aroma character as it warms.

Hops do seem a little faded, and I cannot seem to find a best by date or packaged on date. I sure hope Renegade does this in the future!

Pours a light copper color with good head and some decent lacing. Ample carbonation. Clarity maybe a touch cloudy.

Tastes of citrus hops with some spicy rye that finishes with kick of bitterness. Some peppery notes and good supportive malt backbone.

Feels like it has a little more body than I prefer of an IPA. I like my IPAs dry, and this seems a tad too heavy - maybe medium bodied in character.

A pretty damn good IPA. Solid all around. I enjoy the hop burps I get while drinking. If I lived in Denver, this would definitely find its way in my regular rotation.
