Rye IPA, 101 IBUs. This beer arrives a clear bright ruby color with an inch of rocky white foam on top. Good lacing that lasts unit the glass is empty. Aroma is a nice mix of grapefruit and pine resin with a solid spicy malt backing. The taste has the same grapefruit and pine components of the aroma with the addition of a spicier rye maltiness and a sharp cleansing bitterness that lingers long. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with an appropriately moderate carbonation that is refreshing while at the same time staying out of the way of the flavor. Overall, this is a gem of a beer. It reminds me a lot of Founders Red's Rye, and that's a very good thing.
