In my books, one of the best Rye PA's available. The hops are muted enough to allow the Rye character to shine through. This is an extremely enjoyable brew - one that I would seek out again and again.

Pours a nice yellow with a thin head that dissipates fairly quickly. The nose, holy Hops Superman!! Big hoppy notes with a citrus flower smell that lingers. On the tongue the hops jumps out at you with a spicy rye coming through in the middle and a grape-fruity flavour in the end. Not as bitter as I was expecting but a fairly balanced beer.

341 ml bottle, as pictured.
Hazy, golden yellow color, with off white and dense head, which leaves a nice looking trail of lacing.
It smells of hops, pine and herbal, some rye-like spice is also apparent.
The taste has lots of strong hop bitterness, earthy, pine, citrus and then the rye comes through.
Low level of carbonation, the body is medium and smooth, finishes dry. Rye adds another level of spice.
A fine example of a Rye IPA, very drinkable, heartily enjoyed.

Pours a murky yellow-orange with ample white foam that breaks fairly quickly but leaves a nice band of lace on the glass. A nice sweet aroma, almost mead-like, with tropical and floral notes tingling the nose. Palate is a fairly unique combination of rustic spicy rye malt, orange marmalade, lemon drop, oregano, and pineapple and melon C-hop contributions against a rock candy backdrop. Some pine in the smooth bitter finish that is not punishing. There are no clear dark malt or nutty flavors. Rye and then hops lead a classy and fairly subdued offering (compared to other hoppy IPAs). Highly carbonated. A sweet and uplifting treat well worth seeking out if you are a rye buff or into fringe IPAs. Fairly thin body and could perhaps benefit from more malt balance.
