I had this on tap at Tired hands served chilled in a glass.

the color is light golden with hazed appearance and thick white frothy head with fine bead. The aroma is very nice, lots of citrus fruit from the hops with light malt scent from the rye.
The feel is great, moderate bitterness with nice balance from rye and medium carbonation with mostly dry finish.

The taste of rye is noticeable in the malt, yet the dominance of the hops is great -it brings about a tropical flavor with more grapefruit than anything, yet slight sweet malt balance makes it pleasurable. Overall this was tough to compare to another IPA sampled, but still is a quality take on a rye IPA.

On tap at TH.

Hazy, golden color with a creamy white head that sank to a ringlet and held there, leaving some dots of lacing on the glass. Pretty muted aroma on this one, surprisingly, considering the hop bill, earthy, toasted rye and very light citrus. Taste was light as well, toasted grain, mineral, light hoppy bitterness with no real "freshness" aspect to it, earthy dryness, crackery malts, with a touch of apple in the finish. Comparatively underwhelming when sampled side by side with Shambolic. Light-medium body, light mouthfeel. A decent drinker overall.
