Wow!

So smooth

Draught, two finger off-white head, moderate carbonation.

Smells of rye whiskey, hop, and rope

Tastes: Rye, floral hops, citrus, and bitter finish

Mouthfeel: Perfect

Overall, this is as good as Ruthless Rye, bring on the Rye IPAs! I would commit to a six pack.

Tan and orange tinted, clear, head was ok and lacing is ok.

Aroma is a bit grassy with a good spiciness from the rye and a nice hoppy smell too.

Flavor is mild and balanced. The rye adds a nice touch of complexity. It's hoppy but isn't a hop bomb.

Body is medium, carbonation is ample but smooth.

It's quite tasty. Every one of the sixer will be enjoyed.

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pour amber red with a medium white head, some soapy spotty type lace.

S: Grass and citrus with a hint of rye spice. Smells a bit like a few of the other Widmer IPAs I've had in the past.

T: Rye and heavy grain balanced well with notes of dandelion greens, melon rind, lemon/assorted citrus.

M: Crisp carbonation, nice medium-bodied mouthfeel, creamy with a nice hoppy aftertaste.

O: A good solid IPA. Nothing too special, but IPA fans would certainly enjoy a pint of this.

Bomber into standard pint.

A: pretty normal pour gets minimal head and it formed a very thin cap. Looks like the lacing might be alright though. Good reddish amber color, rye does not lie. Quite clear also.

S: yet another citrusy slightly grassy hop armoa heavy IPA. I must live in Oregon or something. A slightly sweet note on the nose and a bit of spice although very faint. The citrus leans toward orange in this one moreso than grapefruit like in most NWIPA.

T: He hops aren't as overbearing as on the nose, much more balanced than it smells. Starts with wash of flavor that matches the nose. But finishes with a bit more of thsat spice. Surprisingly clean finish on this. Normally I like a little lingering but the crispness does well to keep the heavy hopping at bay. What little lingering flavor there is, is slightly sweet and ever so slightly hopped. Pleasant.

M: the body is as expected. A little heavier than a pale ale but still nothing to make you reach for a spon. Minimal carbonation explains the lack of head and maybe the thickness. A few more bubbles would lighten it up into a sessionable summer brew.

O: good IPA, not amazing but by no means bad.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance –Pours a deep amber color with a thick and persistent just off white head. The head lingers on for quite some time fading slowly to leave a great level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is very light. It consists of a bit of bready smells mixed with some caramel and a lighter hop smell.

Taste – The taste begins of rye bread with notes of caramel sweetness. Some citrus grapefruit hop is present up front, which ends up getting stronger as the taste moves on further. An earthy bitter flavor also comes to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. These hops remains till the end where a smooth rye and citrus/earthy bitter flavor is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little on the thicker and more syrupy side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are pretty nice for the bready flavors of the brew as well as for giving all the hoppy flavors a chance to be sensed well by the tongue.

Overall – A pretty easy to drink IPA. A nice blend of rye and hop (although a slightly more hopped taste up front and at the end may have been slightly more appeasing to the rye flavor).
