Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer brings together tow of our favorite ingredients; hops and rye - serious hops up front provide a pungent, floral, and citrus character. We use centennial, Columbus, and Cascades in this hop lovers dream. The rye provides a slightly spicy flavor and a full mouth-feel. Divided Sky pours straw in color with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, and pine. Drink fresh!

Poured into a narrow chalice: color is an opaque straw/gold, head is bright white, presents about 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to thin top with some lacing.

Smell is floral, fruity, solid citrus presence with a touch of rye malt earthiness.

Taste is a bit earthier and grainier than many ipas, obviously due to the rye malt, but a bit more citrus hops and presence, with some floral aromatics.

Mouthfeel is dry but not biting with a nice fuller presence than some ipas.

Overall, a good drinkable ipa, the rye is light but noticeable, in appearance and taste.

Can from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity!
Crystal clear light golden color, with a decent sized bubbly white head. Sweet caramel maltiness with some citrus and pine to counter. Light spicy earthy tones. Nice drinker, a bit on the sweeter side but quite flavorful.

Great intro into a rye ipa. Well crafted and tasty. You start craving the eye with every drink. Really enjoyable brew a great change of pace for the ipa lover. Wait till your third beer before you judge if your new to rye.

I have to say that for what style of beer this is, it is very well made. Being a Rye IPA, it hits all the right notes of a nice piney and fruity IPA paired with the spiciness of Rye. With that said, this is something I am not a fan of. I do not care for Rye in my beer, even if it is in a nicely crafted IPA.

Will not revisit personally. But well worth a taste if you are a fan of the style.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
