Pours a clear copper color with a two finger beige head from an aggressive pour, nice lacing as well.

Aroma is definite spicy rye, some caramel malt sweetness also with some fruity/herbal hop mixture blending with the rye well. Kind of excepting it to be a little hoppier since its an Rye IPA.

Taste is like the nose big rye notes on a caramel malt base. Rye adds some spicy notes hops are more herbal in the finish lightly spicy as well. Cant read the date stamped on the can but his just showed up at the local grocery, either its a little mature or the hop profile they are using just isn't big enough. Not that its bad just needs more umh in the hop department.

Mouthfeel is pretty solid medium with pretty smooth carbonation.

Overall worth a try, might have to retry if I find some cans I can read the date on. Overall like the stuff I have had from Turtle Anarchy.

Can into a tulip appears dark copper in color with off-white cap 2 fingers strong that fades leaving a curtain of lace.

Aroma is clean with a fruity to herbal hoppiness and a toasty rye backing thats a little bready.

Tastes sweet with bready to toasty malt contrasted by an herbal hop bitterness.

Medium in body, modest carbonation. A pretty decent rye beer but as far as IPAs it is a little dated and/or lacking the hop brightness.

It was a medium colored glowing deep red. Smelled hoppy and of fresh cut grass. The taste quenches the tongue, warms the belly, and lingers on the tongue. It tastes piney, as if it were the first time at camp. It tastes hoppy, of course. Light bodied, refreshing and sustaining. It is bound to overthrow expectation.

i dug this one hard, the best of the rye beers i had in tennessee, which is an admittedly small sample size, but i liked it flirting the line of amber ale and pale ale, and i liked how robust the rye is and that its hopped so aggressively. its a really well put together beer, i wish i could have found more of their stuff around town, but it was not as common as other local crafts in nashville. cloudy brick red colored brew with a full inch of very thick khaki colored head on it with awesome retention. its a nice looking pint of beer. the nose is rye right away, spicy in that muted german rye style, with amber malt contributing a pleasant caramelized character as a base, and the hops seem ripe and juicy, american pale to even ipa in intensity. the rye must make up a significant portion of the grain bill here, as i can taste it even though the crystal malt sweetness thats there on the front end. it dries up pretty impressively in the end, but i cant taste any yeast. it almost has a lager feel to it, which i like a lot, and even though there is a lot of body, its not a sweet or filling beer at all. the rye and the hops go real well together. grapefruit and orange peel from the hops love the rye malt, and the carbonation is high enough to drive that all home. i thought it was really refreshing and unique, and i would have loved to try more of their beers while i was in town, but that gives me something to look forward to next time. well worth trying a pint of this, its delicious.

Wow, serious Rye aftertaste. I personally didn't like this IPA much, but that might be a personal preference.
