12oz can, sample from the brewery.

Hazed Pale amber, good suds action on top. Malty, bready, spicy rye, fruity, & Mildly citric in the nose. Fruity, toasted grain, hop bitterness, & spicy rye on the palate. Very smooth, lush medium body. A very well put together ale, great use of rye.

The Temperance Restless Rye IPA was available at the "Brew At The Bridge" beerfest in Oswego, IL. The beer poured a nice orangish, slightly hazy, color with white head that laced. The scent was citrus typ hop with waifs of pine. The taste was nice and dry with good pine and citrus hop foundation. The mouthfeel is light to medium in body with great carbonation. Overall this beer is a winner and should be tried by those that like rye ipas.

On tap at Smallbar Logan Square, review from written notes.
A dry-hopped rye pale ale.

Opaque orange body, looks like pulpy orange juice. Creamy smooth textured foam on the surface, that settles into a lacy veil with lasting retention.

Mellow aroma, some graininess and dried bitter orange peel.

Light bitterness, peppery spice. A smooth rye beer with moderate hop character. Creamy feel, smooth and earthy. Medium body with mellow carbonation. Flavorful but not especially distinctive. Seemed almost like it was on nitro and the flavors were somewhat muted.

Overall enjoyable, it's not especially unique but well put together.

Temperance is making some solid beers and this one is no exception. Straight from the can and you will enjoy the rye presence here. Easy drinking at 5.8% with just a tad bite off tche rye/hops.
