Notes: This West-Coast style Rye IPA was made with legendary punk band NOFX and is sure to stick. Brewed with spicy rye and a boatload of Simcoe and Falconer's Flight hops, this is one dank pale ale.

Pours a lovely copper with fb of off white head. Smells of pine, toasted malt, some herbal notes and a hint of rye. Taste is sweet malts forward transitioning in to more piney, some pithy grapefruit notes, herbal notes with the rye smoothing the transition. Some biscuit notes, caramel on the front end Hop notes providing a fair amount of balance and astringency to the sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium, the rye definitely provides a smoothing influence on the texture, moderate carbonation and clean finish.
Overall a rather good take on an IPA – the rye influence did seem to mute some of the notes that I enjoy – but overall – very good.

24oz can, sample from the brewery. Nothing is more punk than a 24oz can.

Beautiful pale copper hue, great looking show of lacing. Orangey piney hops in the nose, some spicy rye and caramel in there as well. Deep smoothness, a little creamy, and medium bodied. Clean graininess with bread, rye, and faint caramel. Ample hopping with overtones of citrus rind, pine, fresh cut grass, & blonde tobacco. Kiss of fruit esters and more hop resin in the finish. Damn good job with this beer, seek this one out.

Pours a beautiful clear gold with ample head and tremendous lacing clinging all over the glass. Aroma is dank, hoppy, piney with some grapefruit and assorted citrus. Taste is very hoppy, with plenty of piney hops and grapefruit. Carbonation is a touch lighter than I would have wanted, but overall, this beer feels good and the 7% ABV is hidden very well !!!
