Awesome beer. Looks like an amber but tastes like an IPA. Hoppy blend of stuff put into this brew makes it a great one. I will get it again. Had it after a malty sweet beer and is amazing in contrast. I wonder where the rye is. Perhaps if it gets a bit warmer.

10 min later: definately can taste the rye. It gives it a bolder taste. Kinda bready with a kick.

Like I said. Awesome.
