This is actually a 'rye ipa' but they said it was more IPA than Rye, so that is how I entered it.

A - Somewhat murky bronze, not much head, very spotty lace. I had a taster from the tap and it was fine a few hours ago. I don't know why the growler lost so much co2 - the lid was tight.

S - Floral, malty and has that distinctive dry sharp rye.

T - Very malty, with the hops and the rye battling it out in the end.

M - A bit creamy, sub standard carb as mentioned, good balance and finish.

D - I really liked this one at the brewery. It should be 4s across the board, but I am reviewing this partially deflated grower.
