Poured into a clear glass. Has a nice dark orange appearance that is foggy. Many particles float all in the beer in the haziness. Head is about thumb-sized. Moderate carbonation.

Smell is mostly tangerine, grapefruit, and orange notes. Piney and other earthy notes.

Really spicy. The rye explodes in the mouth, along with other piney elements. There's also a heavy citrusy existence, mostly bitter grapefruit that accompanies the spiciness. For that, I like its personality--even if objectively it may be a little too much. Mouth feel is medium in smoothness.

It's definitely got character and it's all right.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. Stamped on bottle, "BOTTLED ON 08/07/17'.
Brewery notes: "The Cutaway provides a perfect balance between the rye and the IPA beer styles. Starting with a bouquet of grapefruit and tangerine on the nose it works in harmony with the spicy and earthy notes that play on the palate."
Copper body, has floating particles, very slightly hazy, starts with a two finger white head and settles to thick cap. Extensive lacing.
Smells of caramel malt and faint citrus hops.
Taste does have the combination of spicy rye and citrus (grapefruit) bitterness.
Smooth, medium mouth feel.
Better for those that like a rye IPA. Okay, more solid than spectacular. Taste lingers on the palate.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. NO freshness dating that I could find.

Looks pretty darn good. Nice amber coloring, big white fluffy head leaving decent enough lacing.

Aroma is lightly of hops, more so spicy from the rye.

Taste is a double punch of rye & hops, sitting on a decent malt base.

Mouth us around medium.

An okay ipa if you like rye, but some might find the rye & hop mix a little too on the bitter side.
