12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber/light copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, peach, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, caramel, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and dark/rye/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange, peach, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, caramel, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy bitterness; and peppery rye spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, orange, peach, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, caramel, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops and dark/rye/bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness and spicy rye balance; with minimal hop/rye astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and rye spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, creamy/bready, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is a nice rye IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops and dark/rye/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/spicy/resinous/drying finish, not overly aggressive. Very dank/earthy hops, with a balanced malt backbone, and mild residual sweetness. Not sure on age here, I can tell it's at least over 6 months old though. Likely Columbus, Chinook, and Centennial hops. A nicely enjoyable offering, well made style example, and classic hop profile.

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.
