Wow! What an IPA. The best thing about this beer is the mouthfeel. It's so silky smooth. Unlike most anything I've had for a well carbonated beer. My new favorite Union beer offered in distribution.

Pours nice and thick, like Monocacy Riot Rye. Same deep hue too, like a marzen but a bit hazy.

Smells of minty, fruity hops and maybe a little vanilla from the rye.

Tastes pretty bold and brash, with biting hops and peppery rye. Hops have an indistinct sort of fruit salad character, with fairly aggressive minty pine bitterness around the edges. Some nutty toasted malt mid palate and a little orange juice flavor on the finish.

Feel is medium-full, somewhat creamy, with plenty of resin coating the palate.

I love a good rye IPA and this one is no exception. I think Riot Rye still holds the local title, but Union put in a solid effort here. Peppery and full-bodied.

On-tap at Meridian Pint, Washington, DC (back in March):

First off...loved this beer. Big fan of the Rye/IPA combo. The beer appeared a darker, hazy amber/orange color with a thick, creamy white head that was very well retained. The beer gave off a nice pine hop aroma and the taste had a nice rye flavor, but was a bit overpowered by the citrus hops, instead of being more complimentary, but I still found the flavor very enjoyable. The beer had a good feel to it, chewy, but not too heavy, with a dry aftertaste. Overall, I wish that I could get this beer in Georgia, but the next time that I see it, I am definitely going to buy one.
