I'm giving Cellarmaker's original IPA a proper review having had every iteration of Hop Slangin. Pours a clear pale yellow with white head. Nose is much more Nelson heavy than previous versions. Lots of white grapes, diesel, and stone fruit. Taste is also more Nelson heavy than I remember. The rye is restrained. Overall this batch is quite good (01/2016), however I remember being more impressed with last years batch (brewed for SFBW 2015).

Not as good as I hoped it would be. It lacked the smell and taste I look for in a IPA.

I'll preface by stating that I enjoy Rye IPA's. This one isn't as spicy as Ruthless Rye or Hop Rod Rye, but the rye spice is there in perfect balance. The nose on this beer is amazing. Deep citrus, dank pine, and hearty malt. Taste follows nose. Touch of spice from rye. Citrus hop flavors round out the flavor profile. It is a very well made beer.
